We arrived here late in the afternoon and the restaurant was about to close. The host very kindly offered to keep the kitchen open a little longer and we were delighted he did. I was amazed that simple ingredients could taste so good! Wonderful authentic Italian food and fabulous hospitality Couldn't ask for more

Such a warm, family run restaurant. The food was very good--loved the lasagna and the antipasto platters. Good house wine as well.

This is a very good family run restaurant. Donetto and his wife runs the restaurant with his wife in the kitchen and him and the front of house. The service was excellent and the food was fantastic. Will definitely visit again! GREAT!!!

I am writing this review on the experience of our family as a whole. I was not feeling well, so unfortunately did not eat, but the service here was great and they were genuinely concerned about me. The rest of the family enjoyed a lovely meal, my husband raved about the pasta and enjoyed his wine immensely. Both of my... More

Decided to visit Peperoncino after viewing the comments on TripAdvisor and was not let down. The owner of the place was an excellent host and described the dishes available in detail...the food was delicious, we had pasta and home made wine and it was amazing. Will definitely go back again if Im in Pisa.

Bottom line is that the place is good, the meals were enjoyable, but the place appears overrated, and I recommend sticking to the day specials: let me add that I am a local, and I would indeed recommend this as a possible pretty decent restaurant for tourists in search of a place close to the Leaning Tower: it tastes and...
