Great experience in a deserted San Gimignano. The chef is young and very talented all the dishes were great. This was our second time at Osteria San Giovanni and we were delighted to eat there.

Great place, excellent service. We recommend the ribolleta and the leek and potato soup. Not cheap but worth it!

Once with papperdella, a wide pasta,... More

We enjoyed our dinner here in a full restaurant. Excellent pasta dishes and lovely tiramisu. A definite recommendation amongst the many options here.

Revamped restaurant for this year. Freshly painted to feel lighter and more modern. Used to be very dark and old fashioned inside. Food very good and friendly helpful waitress. Good value for money. Will probably visit again.

This seemed like one of the nicer places in San Gimignano, off the square, so it was relatively quiet. It is well kept, clean and one of the few medium priced places that had cloth napkins on the table. The food and the service were both very good

A lovely small restaurant, modern white interior and nice colourful paintings of Tuscany on the walls. We ate there twice in in a week. The prices are very reasonable and the food is definitely of good quality. The friendly waitress spoke English very well. Loved the tagliolinni tartufo, the ravioli with pear and also the pork with apple and raisins.... More
