Ate at La Mandragola on the recommendation of our hotel nearby. A bit tricky to find but definitely worth seeking out. Amazing food, great local wine and all at bargain prices. The sliced Florentine style steak was beautiful - best steak I've had for ages.

We went here on our last night in San Gimignano and could not have been happier! The restaurant itself has a very romantic/intimate feel to it, so perfect for couples. The staff was very attentive, friendly, and hospitable. The food was fantastic. My husband had the rabbit and I had the chicken. Both were so rich in flavor and presentation... More

The clerk in Beconcini (shop near the cathedral) recommended this restaurant to us. He had just eaten there the night before. He wasn't sure if it was open for lunch, so gave us a second choice. Fortunately for us, it was open. Since it was a warmer, sunny day, we decided to eat out on the patio. I chose to... More

San Gimignano is a charming medieval town in the beautiful Tuscan hills, and La Mandragola was one of the highlights of our foodie adventures across Italy. Tucked away off the Piazza Duomo, it is a hidden treasure of delicious typical cuisine, friendly staff, and pleasant surroundings. Every single item on the menu looked delicious, but I settled on the ravioli... More

Been in San Gimignano two days and looking for a good fiorentina steak, we definitely been satisfied by La Mandragola.

Elegant place with outdoor and indoor seating. Situated in the heart of the town. This restaurant has an extensive menu, with a mix of tradition and modernity. Dishes were very well presented and food was cooked at perfection. Very friendly staff.
