Fantastic little spot.

Great dinner here in a neat little room, discretely hid from the tourist zone by mere steps. Arrive early if you want a seat. Have the cinghale, and the rabbit.

We came to Chiribiri after hearing good comments and reading all the positive reviews on this site.... Nevertheless,we arrived and received a not very welcoming greeting from the waiter and an inappropriate level of service... Moreover we had ordered five dishes (pasta, salad, mix meat...) and unfortunately every dish was worse than the other... The highlight was the house wine... More

This is a large plazza that has some good shopping spots and restaurants. But best of all the gelato was the bets I had had. I was in italy for 16 days and had gelato everyday, this small town had a large verity. So many that I had not seen anywhere else, so many beautiful colors. I can't so enough... More

Quiet spot very near southern gate up a short flight of stairs. Lovely outside dining[ recommend a reservation as they only had a few tables ]. Best pappardelle con cingiale of the 3 week trip. Beef in chianti was also excellent. the owner is definitely a character but for us this only added to the charm.

Reservations are a must at this tiny Trattoria as it only has a few tables. Delicious food and an owner with a great sense of humor made for a delightful evening.

We visited san gimigniano during a busy day. We have 4 kids with gluten sensitivity. In Tuscany it is more difficult to find gluten free restaurants than other places in Italy. All the restaurants in san gimingiano open at specific times and we couldn't wait as the kids were hungry. We got the recommendation for this restaurant from the zimmer... More

This is a pleasant spot to eat away from the crowd, the food is quite nice, service is rather minimal but still quite ok, not the best food I've had in Italy but would still return.

This was, hands down, the best meal I had in Tuscany. My truffle and Gorgonzola pasta was off the hook- simple and stunning and so cheap. Can't afford truffle dishes in London! Found it by chance as the only place open about 5pm for early dinner- cannot recommend it enough.

Staying in San Gimignano for a week and sampled a number of restaurants, many of them serving simple Italian food but all provided tasty flavoursome dishes. This was the exception, and not in a good way! We both ordered Bruschetta to start, this came with tasteless tomatoes and no dressing turning a former favourite into prison food. We then ordered...

Decided to try this restaurant because it was recommended in a Rick Steves guide, but also because it was getting glowing reviews from the TripAdvisor community. In any event the restaurant had a lovely outdoor area with tables and a big umbrella, but headed indoors as it was beginning to rain. There are a handful of tables on the inside,... More
