Via l. bianchi 33. an excellent pizzeria just outside the walls, not far from the leanining tower. it is not a touristy place and the prices are reasonable. pizza is very good and the appetizers antipasti are even better. the place is not very big so it is best to arrive early and reserve a table, especially during week-ends.
As a general rule, try not to eat near the Leaning Tower where prices are high and quality low. Head instead to the central area 5-10 minutes walking from Piazza dei Miracoli: you can find very good, cheap restaurants there. For example, there are excellent, friendly and reasonably priced cafeterias in the busy small vegetable market, Piazza delle Vettovaglie. Also Via San Martino, close to the south bank of the river, offers some places with good quality and low price.
This said, near the Leaning Tower, in via Roma, there's a good Indian Restaurant, with a beautiful atmosphere and really good, though not always cheap, dishes. In Piazza dei Miracoli, there's a quite good restaurant-pizzeria, cheap enough, the Kinzica.In any case, don't miss Salza, in Borgo Stretto, with high prices but absolutely gorgeous chocolate, sweets and pastries of all kinds. Don't sit down inside, though, because you end up paying â¬10 for two coffees.
Finally, there's a good pizzeria near the Youth Hostel, too, on the road that leads to the Leclerc, on the left then you must go in the tunnel.
Here are some good spots for eating:
Gelateria Naturale Artigianale De' Coltelli
Ice cream made using quality ingredients, many of which are locally sourced.
