San Gimignano is a captivating medieval town, as easily seen by the increasing crowds it attracts year after year. It takes a lot to be notable in a place of such mystique, and Dorando has it. Most of the day tourists miss the sideroads and...More

Tucked away in a side street off Via San Matteo A doorway and menu board from outside, inside is a warren to an delightfully intimate vaulted dining room. Having cycled 30km, we’d promised ourselves a well deserved treat - oh were we to be treated....More

I was welcomed by an extremely attentious team and the food is awesome. I had the menu classico, and felt embranced by the food, if it is possible. An experience that transcends the food. I highly recommend it.

First we selected this restaurant just because there is pork chop and beef steak. Later we notice Michelin 2017. The decoration is good as in tunnel, no wifi. We had Pumpkin soup with truffle, Green Salad, Duck Breast with sauce for starter. Our main course...More

Ate today at Dorando' and quite frankly I'm disappointed. 144 Euro worth of probably the worst meal I've had in the last two months in Italy. The average/tasteless "zuppa di fagioli" and overcooked "pici" were certainly not worth the price. Will definitely not go back....More

Although the restaurant is very hidden, and indoor place I highly recommend this restaurant. I honnestly had one of the best pesto I ever tried (with fresh basil, mint, walnuts). They also serve a large plate of oven vegetables with tasty olive oil. This was...More

We had a great dinner at Dorando. The service was really professional, and the food exquisite. Although a little bit more expensive than the average, the restaurant offers a different menu, with a lot of character while keeping up with tuscan tradition. Worth a visit...More
