My wife and I visited Restaurant La Stella for lunch during our day trip in this beautiful town. The location was strategically on the main pathway of town, with other shops along the stretch. It created a nice community feel. The place was nicely decorated with a sense of history and characters. We enjoyed the pasta dishes of truffle and... More

We have eaten here twice. The florentine steak was fabulous ! The ambiance is romantic. To get a quiet table make reservations and ask to be by the windows .

We went here as we could not get into any of the higher rated trip advisor restaurants. We just stumbled upon it. The food was very basic but good. Nothing too fancy just great food. We also had very good service. Thanks for the surprising good meal! Goes to show you don't need to be in the top 10 to... More

We thought it would be a bit touristy but we had a fine dinner. The fiorentina we had was better than in some other "proposed" restaurants.

The 4 course meal was excellent. All the food is delicious. All 4 courses were paired with Signano wines. The best! The food is all freshly cooked. It does take time to get your food. Do prepare with patience when eating at this restaurant. The first course did take a little. The staff is nice and friendly.

We arrived into San Gimignano old town in desperate need of lunch and stumbled across this place not far from the entrance. We ordered the wild boar pappardelle and the penne stella (mushroom in creamy tomato sauce) and both pastas were excellent. Our little one tried both and couldn't get enough which is amazing as he is a very fussy... More

Ate here lunch with our 3 small children. The food was quite good (loved the pici with zaafron sauce) but it took 50 minutes to get the food. The children waited and waited until finally they recieved their ragou. The restaurant was packed but with only 2 (very good) waitresses. That's clearly not enough

Fantastic food, excellent choice and efficient staff. Myself and my partner opted for 3 courses and were incredibly impressed with the portion sizes and flavours of the dishes. We would highly recommend the bruschetta with mushrooms and the fettuccine with truffles. However, my partner was very unimpressed with the sirloin steak. Would visit again.

La Stella, a lovely restaurant located withing the medieval walls of San Gimignano, minutes away from the "plaza del Duomo" is a nice place to simply have a drink and watch the tourists and locals walk by and also to have lunch and dinner. I had a tomato bruschetta and a caprese salad (tomata, mozzarella and caprese) which were both... More

Luckily we were able to stop here for antipasti and wine when everywhere else was closed in the afternoon. The food was delicious and the device was efficient and pleasant!
