Waiters were extremely rude and when i told them this is not the way to treat a customer the waiter shushed me. Absolutely outrageous.

The Pasta dishes were bland and lacking in flavour. We were very disappointed with them. The meat dishes were apparently a lot better but I can't vouch for that. I left feeling unfulfilled unfortunately.

We sat down for quick and light dinner and drinks. Ordered their pastas (my partner had vegetarian macaroni and i had meat and mushroom taglatiele). I guess first warning was it is done in 3 minutes - it was terrible meal. Did not enjoy one bit and trying to mask it with parmesan did not help it much. Could not... More

After walking out of another, more upmarket, restaurant having bee ignored for over 15 minutes by the waiters we relaxed at this friendly trattoria in the heart of San Gimignano. The service was swift, friendly and welcoming. The food was very good, the wines also and we enjoyed an evening surrounded by Italian diners (always a good sign) and amused... More

We dropped by for a light lunch after strolling around the town centre. Service was lacklustre, possibly due to the presence of a large group in the restaurant. We were levied a cover charge but the staff made no effort to serve us a customary bread basket. Food was average. In conclusion it wasn't memorable.

We came here in May 2016 and had a great experience. Food is well priced, everything was cooked fresh and service was excellent. The small outside space is great for lunch or dinner! The food was fantastic. I recommend this restaurant if you want to eat well without spending too much. Will definitely come back!

We ate here on our first night in San Gimignano after driving down from Riomaggiore and having a look around the town. On our way back out of town we saw this restaurant up a small side street and decided to have dinner here before going back to our villa. So glad we did although it was little cold outside.... More

We went to this restaurant on our first night and had a very good meal and returned for a second meal after a disappointing experience at another restaurant. Both meals were good value for money and the service was very good on both occasions.

This restaurant was recommended to us but we were not impressed. The service was poor, we felt like we were an inconvenience. The food was just plonked on the table with no comment or eye contact. The bottled water was not even opened much less poured. No ground pepper was provided. At best the food was mediocre and one dish... More

We hanged for quite a while around to find something authentic in San Gimigniano and believed for an instant we had found it. The Macelleria was a bit off the main street and the deco of an old slaughterhouse / butcher shop was attractive. We had a combo of Bruschetta as a starters. Probably as dull and plain as our...
