Great food-service a bit slow

Well located outside the main walls of San Gimignano (near parking) with outside seating framed by hedges. Our food was really good but the service was slow for us tourists but we observed that locals received their meals much quicker. This is a short sighted approach as we are staying in the area... read more

This place came highly recommend by friends and we highly agree. We were in San Gimignano for four nights and we had dinner there for three out of the four as it was that good. Food we would recommend would be the penne pasta with chili oil and garlic, traditional spaghetti bolognese and if you are really hungry and you... More

Just on the outskirts of the San Gimignano walls, this is an ideal restaurant for a pizza. I have visited the place twice and both times happy with my food. Pretty basic, decor inside, outside a little more appealing, however the pizzas are pretty good and good value for money.

arriving in San Gimignano a bit after noon, very hard to find a paring space, weary of being abused in any of the intra-murros eating places, decided to go for lunch in this Taverna literally no more than 50 meters away frm one the entrance gates to the lovely city of San Gimignano. apart from a timing misunderstanding (seemed they...

the food was good overall, and is good for a sit-down after a day of walking, but it's not amazing, per se. wouldn't go out of my way to go there, but the service was good!

We have now had lunch here on two separate occasions ... Gennaro has a fantastic restaurant and pizzeria! Today our group (8) had pizzas and risotto cinghiale! This is where we will eat in San G.! Thank you, Gennaro & Giovanni!

We visited the restaurant twice. The first evening was a Saturday and it was incredibly busy so gave them the benefit of the doubt as we practically had to trip the waitress up to get a second drink. The second evening was mid week and there were fewer customers and staff. Locals/Italians clearly get preferential service. The male waiter was... More

I visit this restaurant three days in a row just for the Firorentina. Amazing meats, antipasti and a very good selection of wines at a very modest price. The retaurant is managerd by the wine association of Siena so they have good wines at good price, you may order wines off the manu by box and get a discount. I... More
