After our visit of San Gimignano – this is surely the most beautiful city we visited when we were in Tuscany –, we decided to end the day at the Vecchie Mura. On the plus side: > The restaurant opens at 6 pm, no need to wait until 7 or 7.30 pm… > Great view on the countryside if you... More

If you going to go to one restaurant in San Gimignano, then this is the one. Book in advance to get a terrace table. Set on the edge of the city walls with amazing views of the valley. Great authentic local dishes and warm friendly service.

We had visited Vecchie Mura previously and knew we had to book to get a prime terrace table, fantastic views with the sun setting, magic. The food was excellent again, a varied menu, well presented and great flavours at reasonable prices reflecting the locality. The staff service was very good, and several were there in previous years. If it is... More

The restaurant has a beautiful flower garden, and we planned to eat outside; however, it was sprinkling when we arrived so we opted to eat inside. The inside is just as charming as the outside. This restaurant is well-staffed and has a highly efficient kitchen staff. We had scrumptious pick with chianina beef - and the veal scallopini with porcini... More

This nice restaurant was recommended by our hotel. There is indoor and outside seating. Our weather was perfect, but we had not made advanced reservations thus had to settle for the inside. Although the inside was very nice, the view from outside was truly exceptional looking over miles of the Tuscan countryside. Take the time and make reservations! Our only... More

I read somewhere in a review that I had to check out this restaurant for the view. So after checking in at Bel Soggiorno I asked the lady if it was a good spot and she said yes. She said to arrive early and it opened at 6. I was not able to reach them to reserve earlier so we... More

Two people who live in the area recommended this place to us and said it is good, local Tuscan food. It did not disappoint. The view was amazing! The food was great and the portions were huge! The prices were great, also.

The view is absolutely amazing. But if you have the energy - head up the tower to see the view and eat elsewhere. This restaurant is beautiful in a very sweet garden courtyard, the waitress was very helpful and recommended a good bottle of wine but the food was bland. If you are a foodie then I would go elsewhere.... More

We struggled to find outside restaurants in town but were recommended this one by our hotel. We thought the overall experience was very good and felt that we were treated like locals rather than tourists.

My husband and I chose to dine at Le Vecchie Mura on the recommendation of a family member, who spoke extremely highly of the location. We made reservations, and requested to be seated outside on the patio, but when we arrived we were told there were no tables available and were seated inside. When someone finally took our order-- it... More
