We stopped in here for a few bowls of Ribollita because the harvest of new olive oil is finally being released. It was simple yet, very flavorful. The staff was kind and patient with us as we did our best to stumble through the order in our best broken Italian. The soup was €8/bowl...and that felt a little high in... More

Pizza was some kind of average, while rabbit stew with home made pasta was tasteless (probably too diluted with water). Service nothing special - brought the food, took the money, no goodbye.

Although this is located in the main tourist thoroughfare of San Gimignano and looks like a fast food type of pub, the main dishes are prepared with skill and portions are good. You can spend an entire evening here starting with local craft brews or wines all the way through to gelato and other desserts. Staff are friendly once they... More

We loved the coffee here - such good value if you have it standing at the counter - and the ricciarelli. Such lovely staff and for us a great atmosphere. This was our go to coffee stop for our days in San Gimignano. A very popular cafe.

On the main thoroughfare in San Gimignano. After long day looking for a quick meal found the Boboli. After a nice aperitif decided on a light meal of veal and crepes served by mother and son. Service very good, food with lovely flavours. Highly recommended.

We had dinner here one night, then came back for lunch the next day. The food was slightly on the expensive side, but lovely flavours and a great range on the menu. Unfortunately the ladies' toilet during the dinner visit was slightly disappointing, as there was no loo roll and it could have been slightly cleaner. The next day, however,... More

We stopped by here without any knowledge of the food, other than what was in the case. We both had Panini's with ham and cheese, and both were very dry, hard bread, with very plain cheese and ham. I had a wine which was of poor quality and my wife a diet coke. Had to wave at the waiter a... More

We found Bobbli in the midst of a heavy thunderstorm and we were treated to the most delicious Tuscan Soup ever with a wonderful home made torte to follow. The service was prompt polite and good humoured but not intrusive. Grazie Mille

We arrived to San Giminiano at night, and looking for good typical tuscan food, after look around of a few Tratoria's, we decides on Boboli, and it was a good desicion. The Boboli is open from 1998 and managed by a local family, the menu is classic typical tuscan food and the staff was amazing. We were with 1 baby... More
