We decided to see if the the "World's Best Bruschetta" sign in the window was true. And it was! Two of us split the the Bruschetta with Pecorino cheese melted over top, and two glasses of wine. Splitting it was the right call, as there was plenty for us both. We were fortunate enough to get one of the tables... More

The food is so simple. We ate tomato salad, bruschette and a hot sandwich and watched how they were prepared using fresh ingredients. The quality of the food makes all the difference. This is a small place with just a few tables and not too many dishes to choose from, but it is an amazing place to hang out, relax,... More

We had the bruschetta for lunch which was a generous serve and quite tasty. The service was average and the owner seemed a bit grumpy. Overall satisfactory but could be better.

Stumbled upon this Enoteca 8 years ago was impressed then and even more now with owner remembering visit. The plate of cold cuts of salami prossciutto cheese blah blah are the best. His wine selections and drinks are great and service is excellent. Sitting street side watching the tourists pass is a great wind down. A definite must stop on... More

Walked past this enoteca a few times and noticed the amazingly beautiful tomato bruschetta. Finally stopped and we had a breakfast sandwich of tomatoes, cheese and basil on thick slices of toasted bread. The tomatoes are juicy and ripe, just as if you picked them from a plant.

Into the super touristic but also very beautiful San Gimignano this is something different, sit on this place, especially outside and order great bruschetta, cheese & cured meats. It's cheap (20-25€ for 2) and you can drink a typical Vernaccia. Staff doesn't speak english but they are honestly friendly. Nice spot for rest & light meal all day

Fantastic platter of mixed bruschetta for lunch, with tomatoes so sweet you'd think they were grapes in a blind taste test. The sun-fried tomatoes were wonderful too, as was the rest of it, along with a nice glass of wine to wash it all down. It was great to sit outside on the precariously angled street and watch the world... More

Great place for some great tasting wine and food in unpretentious setting. The bar man put together some really tasty ham and cheese. Would recommend.

The food is prepared at the moment by the owner of the place. Good wine and delicious bruschetta with sun dried tomatoes. Outside tables so you can appreciate the greatness of this medieval town.
