Vecchio Pasticceria Siciliana

The real taste of Sicily in the Pisan city centre. Enjoy a snack at this nice cafe: Sicilian cannoli (little tubes filled with Ricotta cheese) are a must approved by Sicilian natives. You will also find other typical pastries that are worth tasting and, if the weather is very hot, you will surely enjoy a refreshing granita (a semi-frozen dessert that comes in different flavours).


In Italy, coffee is just as important as pasta. If you want to act like a local when ordering your coffee, there are some unwritten rules you should keep in mind. Cappuccino, Caffelatte or any other kind of coffee with a lot of milk should only be drunk in the mornings, before 11 am. When you order an espresso, don't use the word espresso, which actually is just a technical phrase. Ask the barista for simply "un caffè". Last but not least, when ordering "un caffè" you don't sit down. Stand at the bar and have your coffee while standing. Whether you feel like blending in or sitting down at a table, there are plenty of cafes to choose from in Pisa.
