Took table on terrace but dirty and noisy from traffic and full of smokers so moved inside. Long wait for service for lunch. When it came it was ok but standard tuscan fare really. Average experience but to be fair to them they had what looked like a large coach party to serve as well.

We sat outside, next to the wall, and it was very nice, however it lies just next to a street. The food was average and the staff was very service minded and made sure to give us the best service.

During our holiday in San Gimignano (we try to come here one week every year) we always try to have dinner here. Not a romantic or cozy place, but still worth the visit because of the friendly staff and good food. The ravioli con tartufo is delicious, pici al'anatra very nice and the tagliata di manzo absolutely great! A nice... More

My husband and I had dinner at La Mandragola by chance, since it was late at night and we didn't have many choices at San Gimignano. The restaurant is very big (which we don't usually like) but we had an outdoor sitting. This outdoor sitting is actually out of the city walls and there was a fence but at night... More

We go for lunch whenever we are in San Gim, outside on a nice day is pleasant, above the road so noise is not oppressive but lovely views. Regular tourist menu, consistently good, but not great, food, friendly staff. Over 8 years we have never been unhappy here.

I stayed in the B&B (see other review) owned by this family and was offered a special set meal for guests. I'm so glad I took the time to have dinner here. The excellent food and outstanding service by Ilaria made this one of the best dining experiences of my month long stay in Rome. I was treated like an... More

We came here for lunch and we all had 3 course set lunch. The first course was a pasta, main was pork chop and fresh fruit. Food was really delicious. The staff was friendly.

La Mandragola is one street over from Via San Matteo, the main "tourist" street through San Gimignano, so many tourists will miss it, unless they wander a bit off the beaten path - or read Lonely Planet, where it's recommended. We were very pleased with our meal. Excellent bread and a great starter of mixed Tuscan cheese and meats. The... More

We arrived in town quite late and many restaurants were full. This one was completely empty. We were shown to the outside section which was actually outside the town wall adjacent to the road. The traffic was very noisy and distracting. Despite being empty the service was slow and the food was disappointing and expensive. There are many better places... More
