We had an excellent meal here. The food was definitely to be recommended, every mouthful. We were guided by the wonderful Alicia (spelling?) as to the choice of local wines and they were a perfect accompaniment to our meals. As Australians we sometimes order the food in the 'wrong' way in Italy. Nothing was too much trouble for Miss A... More

Firstly this restaurant has a totally indoors cavern like feel with no alfresco dining which will suit some and not others. The service is pretty professional and fairly friendly and it is a family run restaurant. Whilst we really enjoyed most of what we had the Tagattala steak we had was an incredibly tasteless piece of meat although reasonably tender.... More

It was pouring with rain in July so we opted for a leisurely lunch - and where better to ignore the weather than deep in a cellar. The pasta was wonderful - I had pear ravioli with a lovely cheese sauce and we had some of the best spinach and beans of the trip. Wines were beautiful. Service friendly. It... More

We stopped in San Gimignano for dinner after a full day in a Florence. The reservations were made by our hosts for our rather large group. On the way to it, many in the group got sidetracked by the shops and became hopelessly lost the rest of us still found it hard to find and had to ask a local... More

We made a prior reservation here earlier in the afternoon for our evening dinner. We chose it after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. When we first walked in we found it very warm especially toward the back of the restaurant. Fortunately we were seated more towards the front which was a little cooler. We were greeted with a complimentary glass... More

Tasty and fresh food, great selection of wines. The place is quite small with few tables, so to avoid waiting, make your reservation before.

This place is in a little street off the main areas of San Gimignano and we would have missed it had it not been recommended to us. The food was excellent. The pear tart with honey was a stand out dish for me. The wines were of good quality and value and the service was friendly and efficient.

We arrived soon after opening time for lunch to a warm welcome in a mostly empty restaurant. An hour or so later, when we were well into an excellent three course meal with wine, they were full and turning people away. An absolute gem of a restaurant, highly recommended.
