Service and Food were excellent. The restaurant is family owned and part of the Hotel Sovestro. The owner is a retired race car driver and his many trophy's are displayed in the gym of the hotel. I asked if he would be able to prepare rabbit - which wasn't on the menu and he said that would be no problem,... More

This restaurant was located next to our hotel, which made it very convenient after some very long days. The food and service were great.

Enjoyed our meal here this evening, the service was good and the food unpretentious & delicious. The bread basket featured soft white bread and some very moreish focaccia & we ordered some local Chianti & mineral water to accompany our meal. We started with some gnocchi and a bowl of riboletta, a very satisfying vegetable soup thickened with bread crumbs... More

We discovered this restaurant while staying near San Gimignano. It is located about 2kms from the village, is easy to drive to and offers free parking. There is a great patio where you can enjoy the evening breezes as you dine on a great selection of Classic Italian dishes. The wine list is extensive, the menu choices are very good... More

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.
