Lovely meal in great surroundings - great atmosphere - food & service We sat in the terrace garden at the rear of the restaurant, which is a must if the weather allows.

The restaurant deserves all the accolades it gets. We easily found it arriving from the 3-4 Parking area. All through the meal...my husband had lamb chops and I had pasta.... we kept shaking our heads with our eyes closed, saying, "mmmmmmmm". I looked around and saw people all over the room doing the same. Definitely one of our best meals... More

we went for this place based on Trip adviser ranking (the 1st), and we are not regretting it at all, as starters we had the chicken lever and the tartofu starter, and for the main course we had the meat and the pigeon, for the dessert we took the chocolate with the olive oil cake, over all every thing was...

The problem with TA is that it can rank an ice-cream parlour as a restaurant and put it somewhere in the rankings table whilst doing the same for a 'real' restaurant. As I write this the Dondoli ice-cream parlour is ranked second yet the two cannot be compared. Cum Quibus is very good but San Martino (opposite it in the... More

We visited this restaurant three years ago on our last trip to Italy and I have been dreaming of their exquisite truffle meals ever since. We spent two nights in San Gimignano and ate boot our dinners here. It was exactly as perfect and delicious as we remembered. I will be dreaming of it until I am able to return... More

Not surprised this is ranked #1. Had lunch in their quaint back patio and absolutely loved our experience and meal. Pici pasta with wild boar sauce...amazing. Great staff. Wonderful wine (of course). Do not pass this place up...find it!

This was probably the best meal I have ever had in Italy. The pasta was superlative, the braised beef outstanding. The service was slick. The wine list is lengthy and comprehensive. One minor negative remark. This is a top restaurant in every way. I was therefore surprised that our excellent waitress wore blue jeans with her regulation black top.
