Beautiful terrace makes this place special. Food was very good especially when you pair it with the local wine - Vernaccia!

We really enjoyed our dinner. Plenty of food for reasonable price. We had crostini toscani and affeti cinghiale for antipasti, and primi penne arrabbiata, tortellini ragu and a bottle of house wine. We left full and happy. The view from the terrace is the poscard landscape if Tuscany.

Spectacular view of the Tuscan countryside. They had two seating in the garden, 7pm and 9pm. Take the seven o'clock and enjoy the view. Service was very good, as was the wine and food. I normally would give 4 stars, but added star for the ambiance. We had 3 pasta dishes all delicious, Cacio e Pepe, Gorgonzola with walnuts, tagliatelle... More

We had a great dinner at Le Vecchie Mura, the garden is great with beautiful views! The service was good - better make a reservation in advance. Without reservation you can wait in a small garden until you get seated. The restaurant provides a separate gluten free menu and deales very professionell with the special needs of a celiac.

firstly lets get the food question out of the way as I found reviews contradictory when I was deciding whether to go here. This is very good to just good Italian homestyle simple cooking. which in what may sound like a contradiction to some is designed to be produced in a mass manufactured fashion. if your main concern is a...

We've eaten here before so were looking forward to the return visit. The evening started out well with outdoor seating reservations being made the day prior. The black truffle risotto was excellent having small bits of truffles throughout the dish. The anti-pasta plate was also good.. Next came the main course. My wife had a wild boar plate. I ordered...

When in San Gimignano we've always eaten at this restaurant because of the views and the quality of the food. Unfortunately this year we were disappointed. It appears to us that it's kitchen can't cope with the large number of guests it now attracts. We tried to book by email, but failed to obtain confirmation. We manually booked for 7.00pm... More

We were on honeymoon and apart from a roof top in Florence this was the most romantic view we had on our trip. Book in advance and ask for the best view as it is a deep terrace and those at the back probably didn't have the same experience we had. The food was perfectly good and tasty but didn't... More

This was a very disappointing experience. By far the worst food we had in 3 weeks in Italy. Sitting inside we were not distracted by the great view, instead by the excessive noise. The tagliatelle with truffles had no visible truffles but was made with the cheaper cream of truffle. The other dishes were equally lacklustre and service less than... More
