The location is perfect with a fantasic panoramic view over the area. The food an wine is good an very classic italia. The price is okay with that view. The staff is friendly, but the service is slow. We think it is because of the many gusts and a kitchen, that can not keep up. But if you have the... More

Le Vecchie Mura was chosen because of it's gluten free options. They offered homemade gf bread, pizzas and pasta. My gf pasta did not disappoint. My son also got the local specialty..wild boar. It was not gamey, and also surprisingly very tasty and extraordinarily tender. This was one of my son's top meals the two weeks he was in Italy.... More

Based on reviews in trip advisor we made a reservation to sit on the terrace for dinner and were glad we did. We arrived just before sunset and enjoyed the view. The food was good but for some reason our waitress seemed annoyed all evening and was not very pleasant. Despite that we still enjoyed the pasta dishes.

Came across this restaurant when we were walking around the back streets. Beautiful terrace over looking the countryside, we arrived early and had no trouble getting a table at the front of the terrace, however half an hour later there were no free tables! We ordered the bruschetta which was the best, as were the pasta dishes we tried. Local... More

Very good food, excellent local wines, attentive service and an amazing view from the terrace. Modern, attractive interiors. We were impressed that they also serve gluten-free pasta. WiFi Internet access that forces you to Facebook-like Le Vecchie Mura (but I would have the liked the place anyway). Recommended!

Based on a recommendation from our Agriturismo operator, we dined here twice during our one week stay. Excellent both times. Even if the food wasn't good we would have liked it since we were outside on the terrace with the million dollar view! We came here on our first night here and closed out our stay with another visit. We... More

We were not disappointed with this restaurant. We had to wait 30' for a terrace table but were then offered several. The view was beautiful across the countryside and on a warm evening it was lovely. The service was friendly and helpful and the food excellent.

We asked both the lady at hour hotel and a women in a shop what their preferred restaurant in San Gimignano was. Both recommended La Vecchie Mura .. situated a bit away from "the main street". We walked in and were seated at their terrace and had a beautiful view of the valley. The food was very good and I/we... More

We stumbled across this restaurant, after not being able to find anywhere we wanted to eat in the centre of town. It turned out to be a great find. We didn't have a reservation so we were seated in the garden until a table became free and only had to wait about 10 minutes. We ate outside and the ambience... More

This restaurant was a highlight of our time in San Gemignano. The terrace overlooks the Tuscan countryside and literally separates you from other surroundings Service was delightfully laconic, and both the food and wine were excellent. The garden atmosphere is very relaxing, with sculptures and greenery to delight the eye. A most pleasant dining experience!
