We've been to this restaurant twice, because it's so good. First time we had a late lunch with bruschetta as a starter and wild boar pasta (both, Pici and Tagliatelle 8,50€ ea) with a salad (5€). The portions were even a bit to tall, but the quality was excellent. We sat outside on the terrace and enjoyed every single bite.... More

We decided to have an early lunch. The restaurant looked inviting so we asked if they were open and even though the chef and waiters were finishing their own lunch they said "Sure - take a seat". So we went and sat on the terrace and within a couple of minutes we were given a menu and our place was... More

Of the numerous eateries in this picturesque city, this was a good choice for our large group (~30 people). We shared a varied menu with 'salumeria', bruschettas, wild mushrooms (a local speciality), freshly cooked pasta, salad, excellent roast pork and a local dessert. Good choice of local red wine too.

We went there off-season. Not many tourists, but filled with locals. The food was good traditional Italien dissed, nothing fancy, but authentic and tasty. The table wine was ok, but they have a good, reasonably priced wine-list if you want to become more sophisticated.

Went in with my wife and two kids. Asked nicely if there was a table for four. Waitress looked at me as if I was attempting to ruin her day and rudely gestured me to a dirty table in the corner. We left immediately so could not review the food - but for a place so out of the way... More

We looked the menu outside and there was pizza. When we came in and get menu's there was no pizza at all. When it was time to order I asked for pizza and waiter just laughed that they don't have pizza anymore. I ordered lasagne and big pepsi. At all lasagne was okay. Not the best of my life but... More

Dreadful food: rubbery, bland chicken. Tasteless pasta. Poor wine was recommended by the waiter. Slow service. A lot of other customers sat on the terrace also looked underwhelmed by the food. Absolutely no atmosphere at all!

Having checked out several restaurants on the main tourist trails in San Gimignano, my partner picked this one for dinner, some way along a side street. It turned out to be a brilliant choice. In addition to it's semi-basement indoor seating, there is a mid-size terrace with a view at the back, where we secured a table and watched the... More

Food was outstanding, seated beside a wall of glass with a spectacular view of the countryside around gorgeous San Gimignano.
