We stumbled across this tiny hole-in-the-wall by accident and stopped in for lunch. We didn't expect to see this in San Gimignano, a charming pub with American and British classic rock music playing (e.g. Pink Floyd); rock music posters adorning the walls. The bruschetta and all the food was excellent, owner very nice. Kids had - without exception - the... More

It was just me and my husband wanting somewhere cool to go for a drink and it looked like a muso's drinking venue so we went in. Sat on a little table by the door and got tipsy on Gin & Tonic's (got lots of free crisps) decided to stay and eat there and they played great music (Pink Floyd,... More

As pretty as San Gimignano is, it is penalised by the tourist trap bug. Moving away from the crowded main streets we stumbled upon Echoes which provided that real local and relaxed feel which we missed in other bars and restaurants in the town. The food is simple but good, the wine selection is excellent and very well priced, and... More

This is a splendid pub and wine bar if you are seeking somewhere away from the extremely busy main streets of San Gemignano. There are signposts to it from the main street so follow these...the place is tucked away in a quiet street. Service is extremely friendly and the local wine good. The restaurant serves a range of meals and... More

We happened upon Echoes by lucky chance while wandering around San Giimignano and were delighted on first entry into the 'hotel' to see posters of Pink Floyd. Completely overawed by the selection of delicious bruschettas we asked the proprietor to bring four of his best (there were 4 of us). We were certainly not disappointed. Echoes was the only place...

We chose to eat here because if the good reviews and were not disappointed. Service was excellent. Our waiter was very friendly. He and my husband got on well as they both love motorbikes. The food was excellent. The bruschetta was great. My son had the lasagna and he said it was the best he had ever had. Fresh and... More

My wife and I decided to visit this restaurant after reading all of the great reviews. We waited 30 minutes for a simple bruschetta with tomatoes, garlic, and olive oil and we were only 1 of two customers at the restaurant. The bread was hard, and the garlic was so overpowering, it almost felt like it was powder and not... More

A local suggested we eat here and it was amazing. My husband went traditional, and I tried something very different and we were both pleased. It is not hard to find, but I'm sure most people miss this little side street and door. It is off the beaten path by just a little bit, but we really suggest it if... More

Take your time to find this wonderful bruschetteria. It is worth it. We were treated so well we found it hard to leave. Let the girls go shopping a relax and soak up the beers and atmosphere. You are assured of a very warm welcome from the owner who takes a great pride in his food and service. An outstanding... More
