“Great meal and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We really enjoyed our Bistecka Florentine and all wood grilled items here. The waiter was amazingly friendly and accommodating to our party which included an elderly parent and teenager with discerning food tastes. We tried three pastas and two pizzas and Steak and all were consistently good and fresh ingredients. This was one of our favorite dinners in S.G.

“Il Trovatore was Excellente'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

We tried this based on Tripadvisor reviews and it was excellent! We had a group of 8 and ordered pizza, salad, lasagna, steak, and home made pasta. Every dish was fantastic. I was worried about how the steak would taste but it was fabulous. Highly recommend any of the food there.

“Very good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Il Trovatore was recommended to us by our accommodation as a good venue for "meat and pasta" and was certainly the best pizza place we tried in San G (better than Fuori Porta - which I've also reviewed). I can't comment on the rest of the menu; we wanted pizza and this place fitted the bill perfectly: The pizzas were very large and well priced. The 1st one that came to the table was not what I had ordered, but the waiter took it away and the correct pizza was cooked with no fuss.
If you're in San G and want pizza, I'd suggest that you go here.
PS - it is outside of the city walls, but only a few minutes walk from the centre of the town.
