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)

We visited this restaurant twice while staying at the Hotel Sovestro. Both times, the food was delicious. The service was great (better the first night, than the second), and the food was fresh and delicious. The ravioli was one of the best pastas we ate the entire trip. We found our secondi to be slightly too salty, but the tiramisu... More
