The food was adequate but we had eaten better elsewhere in San Gimignano. This could have been a better experience if the staff had been less off hand. We found this very surprising as we had only encountered extremely friendly and very helpful staff everywhere else we had been in the town. Perhaps they were having a bad day

This is a nice small restaurant with very friendly staff. I ordered the Tuscan pasta which was filling and very tasty. My partner had the chicken with roast potatoes and we were very happy. I had Tiramisu and my partner had the chocolate cake for dessert and they were both delicious.

We were attracted by the interior of this restaurant, once a butcher's shop. Food and service did not disappoint. Good selection of homemade pasta dishes and excellent house wine. We found it good value for money.

While spending the afternoon in San Gimignano, my husband and I decided to eat dinner at this wonderful spot! It's on a beautiful side street, we had outdoor seating, fabulous service and food. We both agreed that this was the second best Ossobuco we had while in Tuscany. Prices were very reasonable for the food we had as well. I... More

Very enjoyable dinner, great building. We tried wild boar pasta, rabbit stew and a number of other dishes, all were very good, including the side of spinach and the deserts. The restaurant appeared to be a good mix of locals and tourists. We spent a bit, but we ate a lot. Each item was priced reasonably. Very enjoyable evening.

We were looking for a simple dinner with good pasta and some nice wine. We had excellent pasta (tartufo) and some wonderful chianti reserve. The best, however, was the friendly service. Our servers were friendly, treated us like family, and made our evening fun. We were invited to try several different grappas on the house, and we thoroughly enjoyed our... More

Really worked out when we were not expecting anything in particular. There is not a lot of choice in San Gimignano in the evening for good food but this was high up there as one of our best so far. The crostato was enough for two and was delicious .The pork in apples, prunes and honey with oven baked potatoes... More

Nicely located off the main shopping alley, menu fairly standard and food no more than average. Service not the friendliest, trying to sit down for some dolci we are told we have to order a main as well and the waiter headed straight to the next table. There's a lot of choice in San Gimignano, so this may be one... More

When visiting San G you're not short of places to eat and whilst this one is OK and nothing more there are plenty of other better places to use. Whilst the food was OK it was nothing special - our Florentine steak was simply average and the desserts gave all the impression of being bought-in. From that perspective then this... More
