A relaxed restaurant with good service! We enjoyed pizza, pasta and antipasti and visited twice in the week we were there!

Pretty nice place in the streets of San Gimignano. You can sit in a table outside, enjoy the city and still relax, since the restaurant is next to the main street, but not in it. The food was good, service too. I would recommend it. It is not too expensive.

My husband and I are here for lunch, after stumbling upon it, the court yard seating in the full sun or shade was beautiful. The restaurant was moderately full, with lots of people enjoying wine and food. We were promptly served, enjoying our red wine waiting for our meals. We were served piping hot and fresh Tuscan vegetable soup and... More

Unfortunately we had experienced terrible service from the manager of the restaurant who was vey rude. He than followed up with a tirade about one of his staff members to and had really... More

I am only giving it two stars because the food was great and the young waiter was kind. The problem (HUGE problem) is the owner. He shouted at us from the moment we sat down. All the time we smiled to him hoping the situation would change and sadly it didn't. I don't recommend this place to anyone; if you're... More

Ordered maretri 2 660cl beer for €5.50, received 400cl draft beer and they charged for the bottled beer. When challenged they refused to acknowledge this. Eventually they reluctantly relented and altered the bill but after a heated discussion. Pizzas however were very nice, complements to the chef. Would I return or recommend?? Not a chance!!

The restaurant simply relies on its position and lack of repeat business. It enjoys a quieter spot just off the main square and thoroughfare. Waited 15 minutes to place a drinks order before it was too busy. When I managed to get the owner's attention he told me off and said that we wouldn't get anything faster by grabbing his... More

Went there for a drink with friends and kids after a day of visit. You feel your presence annoys the boss there. It went berserk when he started yelling at other customers and insulting the waitress. The one star is actually for the waitress who has to undergo that everyday.
