A good place to sit and eat a delicious Tuscan meal. Food was great, and children's first choice didn't appeal and there was no problem replacing it. It was relaxing and a great place to eat on our last night. Nice they don't feel obliged to serve pizza. I needed a break from pasta and the chicken was really succulent... More

We've visited "Da Pode" each summer during the last 10 years of so - and we've never been disappointed. It's a great Tuscan restaurant with a variety of local dishes(no pizza). Specialities like wild boar is naturally found on the menu. Service is nice - with the charming lack of English skills :-) Price level is above average, but it's... More

All of the food that we had was excellent. The wild boar is amazing and the saffron pasta was unique but still great. They have some of the best steak that we had on our whole trip to Italy. And they also have gluten free pasta.

We stayed at the hotel for a week and ate there 3 times as the food, outside location and service were all good and we could both drink! Not many outside restaurants in town and the food here was at least as good if not better than the ones we ate in. Got fed up with pasta after a week... More

We went to Da Pode as a family group of seven to celebrate our adult son's birthday during our San Gimignano holiday. We had a very enjoyable evening. The restaurant was not too crowded and the service was extremely good. We loved the Italian/Tuscan food and had no trouble finding something we liked. We found the restaurant to be quiet... More

We ate at Da Pode several times during our stay, largely for reasons of comnvenience. Food pleasant if unimaginative, and staff good. It has a huge outside area with loads of tables, so I imagine it is busy in the warmer weather.

We enjoyed every bite! Our friends ordered Florentine steak, which is not my thing, so I had the gnocchi. It was delicious. The service was very nice and very friendly (which is not always the case in Tuscany)
