We were in San Gimignano for a few hours on an autumn evening. The town was empty and almost every restaurant was closed. We passed Quattro Gatti and found it open. We would have been happy with mediocre food and service at that point, so what a nice surprise when this place turned out to be fantastic. Service was very... More

In a side street you will find this cozy restaurant with very friendly staff and traditional dishes. No pizza here, and that is something positive. Tables offer privacy, which is also nice for a change. Dishes are simple and very tasty. The food is like you would eat when visiting an Italian family at home. Try the pici, very will... More

We ate here on two occasions, both late evening. The restaurant looks welcoming, was always busy but never more than a 5 minute wait for a table. Overhead heaters to take the chill off the night air were ideal. All the food we had was freshly prepared and tasty. Not big portions, but enough over 3 courses. Prices were very... More

Had lunch yesterday at this small, charming restaurant. A beautiful terrace out back, a little off the main square, so nice and quiet. Small menu, but good, freshly prepared food and excellent service. The prices were very reasonable compared to many other places in Italy, with the cover charge only 1.50, pasta 8 euros. My dessert was my favorite, pannacota... More

From booking a table for our evening meal the staff were very helpful and friendly. The setting sitting outside at the back of the restaurant was a lovely little courtyard, very tranquil and romantic. The food was beautiful. Not a huge menu to choose from but enough variety to satisfy most. The wine list was also decent. Sadly this restaurant... More

This is one of the top places to dine in San Gimignano, the menu is small but the food is all prepared fresh and tastes excellent. We have been eating here for many years and always look forward to returning. Rosanna, Andrea and Daniella always make you feel so welcome. They have a terrific balcony dining set up which is...

The outdoor seating area is really beautiful. The waiters/waitresses are friendly but less than attentive. We had finished our starter before we were brought our wine (and only then after a reminder). The starters were nice and my partner's pork was delicious but my pasta (cheese and pepper, not hard to do) was overcooked and underwhelming. I love this town,... More

We stopped here for dinner after our hotel recommended the place, as it was supposed to be far from the typical San Gimignano tourist traps. And they were right. Although filled with tourists you still feel an authentic vibe to the place and not the typical touristic attraction. We were seated in the outside terrasse which is very cosy and... More

Recommend by a local - Our first meal here was just perfect, great service, excellent food and a lovely ambience on the terrace. We enjoyed ourselves so much we went back three times. Good value for the standard of food. Over the three days we ate pasta, risotto, steak and pork everything was delicious.
