Pizzeria Il Montino information
There is nothing flash or fancy about this down-to-earth pizzeria, an icon among Pisans, student or sophisticate alike. Take away or order at the bar then grab a table, inside or out, and munch on house specialities such as cecina (chickpea pizza), castagnaccio and spuma (sweet, nonalcoholic drink). Or go for a focaccine (small flat roll) filled with salami, pancetta or porchetta (suckling pig).
Hidden in a back alley, the quickest way to find Il Montino is to head west along Via Ulisse Dini from the northern end of Borgo Stretto (opposite the Lo Sfizio cafe at Borgo Stretto 54) to Piazza San Felice where it is easy to spot, on your left, a telling blue neon 'Pizzeria' sign.
