Great place for dinner

Delicious food. Outside dining was full so we ate inside. The spaghetti with pesto was soooo good as was the minestrone and bruschetta.

We had a nice enough meal here - overall I would rate is better than 'Average' but not 'Very Good'. It was very noisy in the room but that was mostly because of one large group near us, not the restaurant's fault, and unfortunately the weather wasn't really good enough to take advantage of the terrace, which looks lovely

Wow, what a view from the outside terrace! Fantastic steaks, fresh fruit salad, a hidden gem steps away from the central square. Make sure you reserve a table outside otherside you'll have to eat inside...

Night 2 of 3 nights and the experience was mediocre. The food quality was good (not as good as Peruca where we were last night AND taking into account price point), but the service was a let down. Wine glasses left unfilled, plates left uncleared. View amazing.

We ate here on our last night in Tuscany and because of the weather we ended up missing the view from the terrace and having to eat inside. We were all pleasantly surprised to have delicious food and a good atmosphere inside. This restaurant deserves its rating on Trip Advisor .... and not just for the view!

We visited San Gimignano in 2013 and came back again this year. We had heard about this restaurant from family members who had visited the city previously and suggested that we come for a meal here. The restaurant is superbly located overlooking the Tuscany hills but be warned, you need to book in advance if you want a premium table.... More

This restaurant has a lovely terrace, beautifully done and with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. You do need to book though as it is very popular and gets really booked up. The food is typical Italian with a large menu. We actually only had one course but this was reasonably priced. As I'm writing this I'm struggling to remember... More

We visited this amazing restaurant to celebrate an 80th birthday! The views are really amazing so book the terrace - but the food is excellent. The staff speak great English and went to great lengths to ensure we had a lovely evening despite an amazing summer storm! Our meal was brought under an umbrella - taking care to deliver between...

For a start I had mixed cold seafood and then I had pasta with gorgonzola sauce and crushed nuts. The portions were very big, therefore I didn't order a meatcourse or dolce. All and all more than satisfighing, deffinately a place to visit

Go here for the view. Book ahead and ask for a table n the terrace with the view. Its stunning. Food was OK but let down by slow service. Sat for 15 mins before being given a menu, then a further 20 before our food order was taken. Felt somewhat ignored after our main courses arrived and struggled to get... More
