This pasticceria is situated directly outside the city walls along the road to Siena. It offers great pastries, panforte (best ever) coffee, sandwiches and cocktail drinks, and we had them all! Also special ice creams. There are tables to sit and relax, both inside and at a lovely little terrace in front. Three very convenient parking spots in front during your stay at Il Criollo. The staff is very customer oriented and most friendly. One of the highlights of our visit to Tuscany. Highly recommended.

San Gimignano is an ancient medieval walled city and Il Criollo is just such a clean, bright and modern café - it came as quite a welcome surprise! We went there twice - once before visiting the beautiful walled city of San Gimignano and once on the way out - great coffee and the most alluring array of mouth watering desserts (including some that were gluten free and dairy free :))) - all on offer in very clean and welcoming surroundings! Loved the place!! It was one of the highlights of an amazing tour around wondrous Tuscany and all the gorgeousness and deliciousness it offers...

This is a nice place, and just outside the city walls, so it is far less touristy, which I enjoy. The bear was ice cold, ergo perfect and the classic sandwich tasty.
Sitting out on the terrace, there is also a good chance of seeing passing cars nearly bump off their front bumper, because a bump in the road at the turn, that is just a little bit higher than most drivers expect. An added bonus.

This is a wonderful little restaurant that is just outside the main walls of San Gimignano. We were heading out of the town when we saw it. Although it has limited parking, the service and food quality are awesome. You can see from pictures posted that the staff take great pride in their presentation and quality.

I was passing by and the eye immediately fell on the window of the bakery, I decided to enter. definitely a good choice !! from the fragrant and fresh breakfast proposals to the exquisite and refined flavors of a single portion of which I had the pleasure of making me delight. very kind and helpful staff, certainly a fixed stop in the area.
