We doubted going in as outside was fully booked. The service was friendly but indeed not the best. But the food was just good! Not disappointing at all as some of the critics say. Price - value is even excellent and my wife and I are real Italian food freaks. And out biggest criticaster: our kids ate all the pasta... More

We were looking for a place a little off the beaten path, wandered down a side street and found this. Wonderful local cuisine, great service. They start serving dinner at 6:00, most other restaurants of this caliber don't open until 7. Recommend going early or reserving ahead if you want the view -- outside tables filled very quickly.

The food was decent but it seemed like they were serving more people than they had time for. The waiters were far apart and we waited a long time to order and then for the food to arrive. Why make an effort with that view? Tourists probably only come twice anyway. I was disappointed and I would only recommend it... More

Not only the view is a reason to visit this restaurant, although it is magnificient! The main reason to visit Le Vecchie Mura is the excellent food. The bruschetta pomodori is a good starter, as well as the mista mare (a plate full of different seefood, lightly sprankeled with lemon). As main course you can choose all kind of pasta... More

Le Vecchie Mura is tucked away from prying eyes and while walking towards it, you can't help but wonder if you're heading the right way until you turn into what unfolds into a garden - looking out at a breathtaking view. Reserve ahead of time and ask for a table at the very edge.

Wow! Astonishing view from the terrace at La Vecchie Mura! Apart from that, great wine selection and very good pasta's (especially the ones with truffle)! The seafood on the other hand is not so good, but since you are in Italy, and not at seaside, there are better options ;-)

The title sums it up. We ordered grilled vegetables, gnocchi with truffle and cheese sauce, and veal with mushrooms. Although we weren't very adventurous in our choices, there was nothing special about any dish in execution, taste, or (especially) presentation. However, the beautiful vista and a nice bottle of wine made up for the average food and lackluster service. We... More

If you eat inside, you get the privelege of a fine, stone medieval feel. Historic and powerful. But don't do that if you come to this restaurant: you must go to the balcony garden. Set with leafy walnut and persimmon trees, it has a panoramic view of the sort of Tuscan countryside that inspires great poetry. Truly magical. The food... More

Vecchie Mura's outside terrace has one of the best views in all of San Gimignano--which is saying something. You will probably need to reserve ahead to get a table there, but you will be glad you did. The food is good, classic Tuscan fare, served in a friendly manner. Their inside dining is perfectly nice, but lacks the excitement and... More
