Stunning View and Great Food

I visited San Gimignano with my wife for a few days and we enjoyed dinner on the Terrace the first night. "Enjoyed" is an understatement. It was just gorgeous. The view is of course the reason to visit this restaurant and the gentle hills of Tuscany interrupted only by a few pine trees is always... read more

Best to arrive around sunset. Also best to make reservations. We were there in October and it was almost full up. Food is slightly above average but as other reviewers have said, the view is what makes place worthwhile. Ossi Buco was good

The highlight of our first trip to San Gimignano was our late evening dinner at La Vecchia Mura on the terrace. Based on our view alone the meal was spectacular. But even it paled in comparison to the service and food. All in all it was a glorious night.

Amazing food, but too late to upload a photo as it would only show a lot of empty plates 😝 Highly recommended, especially in the winter season as the flavours are 100 times better!!!

Tucked away off the tourist route this charming modern restaurant built under the arches of a medieval building has a menu to meet all tastes. Fresh ingredients, charming team and great wine.

The view from the terrace is breath taking. Particularly at sunset. Get a seat along the rail for the best view. Reservations are needed. There is an inside dining if the weather is not good and it is beautiful.

You can choose the intimate and beautifully appointed dining room or like us the spectacular view on the large outdoor patio. Either way the service was friendly and attentive and the food was wonderful.

We had a lovely dinner at the restaurant's terrace although we had booked a place at the railings we didn't get one (despite the reservation we had e-mailed them a month before). I mean the view makes half the experience, right? Nevertheless the pasta and the fiorentina steak were great and the riserva excellent. I guess we could have another... More

Ate here with my husband after having made reservations earlier in person. When we went back the waiter remembered my name and promptly seated. We waited at least 10-15 minutes before anyone came back to take our order. Service after that was better (another person seemed to come). A good wine recommendation by the server and explanation of the menu.... More

My wife requires gluten free food and while many restaurants say they have Gluten Free food it is usually salads. Rarely do they have any pasta. She was absolutely adamant when we wanted to go back to a favorite restaurant, she insisted it be Vecchie Mura. The staff is very prompt, courteous and professional.
