In the midst of all the throngs of shoulder-to-shoulder tourists, and the over-the-top-expensive eateries in San Gimignano, this was the perfect find for us. On a uphill and quiet side street from Via San Matteo, this trattoria has beautiful, golden stone, barrel ceilings, yellow walls and sunny yellow, printed tablecloths to match, wooden ceiling fans, funky, exposed ductwork, and prints...

During a fifteen-day trip to northern Italy this was by far the most disappointing meal that we had. There is just nothing to recommend it, especially in a city like San Gimignano, which has much better alternatives (and we ate at several of them, including Le Vecchie Mura and Locanda di Sant'Agostino). We partly have ourselves to blame, since we... More

Stumbled upon this place accidentally and we were so glad we did. A big hit with the entire family. Service is nice and cordial. Reasonably priced at a check for a family of 5, with entres and soft drinks for €62

We went in on our first night in San Gimignano, and we found the food decent and service efficient. The meats and appetizers were nice, but the pastas were pretty bland. We entered around 7:30, and the place had only one other table. But by 8:30 it was packed. As with most restaurants in the city, you pay a "cover... More

Waiters were extremely rude and when i told them this is not the way to treat a customer the waiter shushed me. Absolutely outrageous.

The Pasta dishes were bland and lacking in flavour. We were very disappointed with them. The meat dishes were apparently a lot better but I can't vouch for that. I left feeling unfulfilled unfortunately.

We sat down for quick and light dinner and drinks. Ordered their pastas (my partner had vegetarian macaroni and i had meat and mushroom taglatiele). I guess first warning was it is done in 3 minutes - it was terrible meal. Did not enjoy one bit and trying to mask it with parmesan did not help it much. Could not... More

After walking out of another, more upmarket, restaurant having bee ignored for over 15 minutes by the waiters we relaxed at this friendly trattoria in the heart of San Gimignano. The service was swift, friendly and welcoming. The food was very good, the wines also and we enjoyed an evening surrounded by Italian diners (always a good sign) and amused... More

We dropped by for a light lunch after strolling around the town centre. Service was lacklustre, possibly due to the presence of a large group in the restaurant. We were levied a cover charge but the staff made no effort to serve us a customary bread basket. Food was average. In conclusion it wasn't memorable.

We came here in May 2016 and had a great experience. Food is well priced, everything was cooked fresh and service was excellent. The small outside space is great for lunch or dinner! The food was fantastic. I recommend this restaurant if you want to eat well without spending too much. Will definitely come back!
