Lots of food and drink

We had a group of nine (6 adults, 3 tweens) in our party and we eat a dinner meal at Fattoria. There were not courses so much as plates of antipasto, warm and cold (and pickled) vegetables, cold meats, bread, and cheeses. The main course was roasted potatoes and pork fillets. We had the owner's... read more

I have lived in Italy for two years, and this was the best meal I've had. The amazing selection of dishes served family style, coupled with the ancient dining hall produced a truly memorable experience.

We visited the place basing on TP recommendations - we were driving few kilometres as it is away from everything. After arrival we were searching for entrance for few minutes - finally got upstairs and so some free table but we were asked to check downstairs if they can accept us. We came to wine shop and very unpleasant guy... More

Went there with friends to have a wine tasting and a dinner "tutti insieme". The food was delicious and with a very high quality and the biological wine made there by the ownera is super. I would like to be back there also for sleeping.

Went for a wine and food tasting and a quick tour. The owners provided plenty of food and wine and were nice enough to make something vegetarian for my wife. Nice experience.

We came here on a bit of a whim - so pleased we did. Emailed ahead for lunch which was ENORMOUS with delicious cheeses/ hams/ salads/ home wine. Not ideal if you are driving because you'd want to settle in for the afternoon! So play scissor, paper stones to see who has to drive! A beautiful place.

Just 2-3 miles from the hill town of San Gimignano, Italy was this small working farm with its B&B. Our room was a triple and it was adequate. The fresh air, the views from the windows, and the quiet were wonderful. The pool was refreshing. Breakfast was very good but dinner was exceptional. The guests, staff, and their family all... More

Fattoria San Donato is a b&b; but once or twice a week they organize dinner for their guests who are staying with them at that moment. (besides all bus-groups who enjoy lunch here in the garden) When dinner is organized, you'll find a sign at the breakfastroom that dinner is arranged that evening. We can highly recommend it! Now staying... More

The wines from this vineyard are great value and seriously good. The Vernaccia was one of the best we tried.

After about 10 complicated and unsuccessful phone calls to other farms asking for an afternoon of wine sampling and a bite to eat, Umberto at Fattoria San Donato gladly invited us down for some wine and 'a bit of food'. After driving about 10 minutes out of San Gimignano we arrived at the beautiful farm to be greeted by Umberto... More
