On our first experience we had received so so service. We had thought to give it a second go as we had thought it could be better. Unfortunately we had experienced terrible service from the manager of the restaurant who was vey rude. He than followed up with a tirade about one of his staff members to and had really... More

I am only giving it two stars because the food was great and the young waiter was kind. The problem (HUGE problem) is the owner. He shouted at us from the moment we sat down. All the time we smiled to him hoping the situation would change and sadly it didn't. I don't recommend this place to anyone; if you're... More

Ordered maretri 2 660cl beer for €5.50, received 400cl draft beer and they charged for the bottled beer. When challenged they refused to acknowledge this. Eventually they reluctantly relented and altered the bill but after a heated discussion. Pizzas however were very nice, complements to the chef. Would I return or recommend?? Not a chance!!

The restaurant simply relies on its position and lack of repeat business. It enjoys a quieter spot just off the main square and thoroughfare. Waited 15 minutes to place a drinks order before it was too busy. When I managed to get the owner's attention he told me off and said that we wouldn't get anything faster by grabbing his... More

Went there for a drink with friends and kids after a day of visit. You feel your presence annoys the boss there. It went berserk when he started yelling at other customers and insulting the waitress. The one star is actually for the waitress who has to undergo that everyday.

The place is really nice (because it's in San Gimignano), the food and pizzas are quite tasty, but it's not as good as in many other places in Italy. The main drawback for me would be the prices which are veery high as well as the service. The waiter was quite mean and didn't smile even once. 3/5 for me.

Will situated just off the main street, we have stopped here the past couple of years for a bit of a break and something to drink. Granita limone was quite refreshing!

This restaurant is an outdoor cafe near the main square in San Gimignano. The pizza we ordered was fine, and the service was average. The food came out in reasonably short order. We all had pizza, and two were large enough to serve three people. One mildly interesting tidbit: this is one of the few restaurants in Italy that will... More
