I have to say, my husband and I enjoyed our food and our wine, but the main problem we had here was the heat. We were seated in the back of the restaurant and it was SO hot inside that my husband nearly passed out-- I think we ended up drinking about 6 bottles of water before either of us... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant for local food. We were not disappointed, it is set in a charming room with great ambiance, the service was excellent, the waitress recommended the perfect wine to match our meals. The highlight was the fagottini with pear, pecorino & pine nuts, closely followed by a mouthwatering steak cooked to perfection and also the mushroom... More

Having been turned away by highly reviewed restaurant we headed here. The restaurant which was full and tables quite tightly packed in some places was lovely. A nice atmosphere and extremely good service. I would push anyone to let the staff recommend wine pairings with your chosen meals. Food was excellent, one of the nicest meals we had travelling through... More

We ate here on our 1st night in San Gimignano and whilst it was good, we didn't feel compelled to go back. The food was good - mixed antipasti as a shared starter, followed by large portions of pasta each. My main and my wife's were very different temperatures, so I'm not sure if one had sat around waiting for... More

Chose here based on TA reviews and very disappointed. We were the only people in the restaurant for quite a while and neither of us enjoyed our meals. I had steak which was chewy and flavourless whilst husband had wild boar cooked in red wine which was very salty and dry ( no sauce) the roast potatoes we ordered to... More

We had lunch twice in Peruca, once just the two of us and once with a group. Both times we enjoyed it very much. The location is great: around the corner of the main walking road in centro storico San Gimignano. The restaurant offers great value. The staff was very helpful in accomodating our group of 13 wine lovers. We... More

I ate here on two successive nights, just a single dish of pasta each time. The papardelle (wide flat noodles) with wild boar meat on night one were terrific, the kind of pasta dish you dream about. The pici (thick Tuscan spaghetti) with mushroom and sausage on night two were almost as good, just a shade too al dente for... More

Found this little gem for lunch as we wandered the alluring town of San Gimignano. Fantastic fresh caprese salad to start. My daughter followed that with a pear ravioli in a light cream sauce that was awesome. I had a truffle risotto with zucchini flower. Beautiful presentation and wonderful earthly flavor. Accompanied by a chianti Classico and we were more... More

We chanced upon this restuarant while out exploring. As we walked past the smells drifting from the doorway stopped us in our tracks. Luckily for us they were able to find us a table for two. The staff made you feel very welcome and were attentive throughout the meal. The food was amongst the best we had in our week... More
