“Great Food, even better views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

This lovely restaurant is a must in San Gimignano! What a beautiful view overlooking the valley! It doesn't get any better than this! The menu was very nice and the food equally good. It is truly a special place you will always remember!

“Wonderful dinner, Amazing View, Fantastic Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We ate here on our last night in San Gimignano and wished we had found it earlier. Our dinner was fantastic, the views of the Tuscan valley and the cool breezes were enchanting, and the service was very friendly, efficient, and accommodating. Overall, this was our favorite place to eat in San Gimignano - hands down.

“Good in parts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

We were two couples visiting this restaurant for dinner. Booking was essential.

The food was a little disappointing for a restaurant which had suggested a higher calibre in that my gallina was grilled but tough although the seasoning was good, others in our party were disappointed in their choice of suckling pig in that it was extremely fatty so a lot was left uneaten.

Beautiful setting and friendly and courteous service, ambiance was altered as there as a large party taking up a good proportion of the restaurant.

Try to book a table by the window as fantastic view

Would be willing to try it again as a second choice in this town.

“Excellent service from Cosimo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Stumbled across this little gem, unfortunately all tables with the best views were booked, however, we settled on an inside table. Even without the amazing views the place was a hit, past diners include Georgio Armani and Tony Blair, and now us. The food was tasty, well presented, good serving sizes, enough variety and our waiter Cosimo knew the food and wines, very well. It's on our list for returns.
