I start by describing the local in classic Renaissance style. Some porthole from the floor allow you to view the cellar. Locale very quiet and intimate, we were the only Italian. Friendly staff and great food. I Council wild boar with polenta and some vegetables. Also excellent sirloin of pork with prunes and cabbage. Finally apple pie with saffron ice... More

This is my first trip advisor review. Sorry if I am not amazingly articulate, but bottom line, I ate here with my family, and I am the only one with celiac, and this was by far the best meal I had in Italy! So many gluten free options, and the true test, my family loved it all too. They even... More

This is one of the best restaurants in San Gimignano, just outside there is one of the best views over the countryside. You can eat outside if you want. the inside of the restaurant is very well decorated and if you like jazz you can relax over a terrific meal and wine and listen to the background music. The menu...

We went to the restaurant on the strength of Rick Steves recommendation. First thing to note is that the restaurant is closed between lunch and dinner so, it opens for dinner at 7:15PM. A reservation is definitely a good idea because there are a number of people looking to dine at the same time so avoid disappointment. We were seated... More

Ate here during our stay in san Gimignano. Very nice clean place, with everything you need, good food, good service and wine. Maybe not a place that would warrant a return trip, but still would enjoy it. Cacio e Pepe was very good as was the pasta with truffle. Wild boar with polenta was ok, but polenta was boring, tasteless,... More

We were lucky to get a table without reservation. The meal was very enjoyable and service friendly. We saved just enough room to head back to the main square for the world famous ice-cream!

We arrived without reservations but our family of four was seated quite promptly. We all enjoyed our dishes, the papardelle was outstanding. The service was friendly, prompt, perfectly nice. Hope to eat here again in the future!

Ate here on our wedding anniversary - what a good choice. The service was excellent and the food was delicious- a spinach and herb flaky pastry parcel with tomato sauce to start, followed by roast pork fillet with dried tomato crust on saffron mash and tiramisu. The local wine was also very good and the bill was very reasonable. Would... More

This is a lovely small restaurant. The service is extremely helpful and attentive and the meal is well paced. The food is first class (chicken highly recommended) and the wine list is interesting and most budgets would find a bottle to suit. The building is beautiful and there is good space around the tables. The owner seems to like jazz... More

Small restaurant with nice friendly service, good food and good value in a quiet location. A nice choice to get away from the crowds of central San Gimignano. Would certainly return.
