“Delicious Tuscan food with breathtaking view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We chose this restaurant on the suggestion of our hotel receptionist and we were not disappointed. The terrace is placed on the walls of the town and overlooks Val D'Elsa underneath. Ideal for a romantic dinner, but really who wouldn't like to dine 'al fresco' with such a view??? The food is equally amazing: it delivers wonderful local dishes: we tried a mixed starter of crostini with pate and charcuterie (a must try if you're in Tuscany) and for main we went for 'primi' (pasta dishes) with black truffles. A very delicate and tasty combination. We closed the night with the most traditional dessert: cantucci e vin santo. Definitely worth a visit...

“A MUST in San Gimignano”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

ridiculous panoramic views on the terrace and excellent food. EAT HERE if you are in San Gimignano. Parking lot is about a 5 minute walk.

“Great meal with fabulous view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

We managed to get a table without reservation here. The food was very good with friendly service at a reasonable price. The view is fantastic so visit on an evening with clear skies and you will not be disappointed!

“Great Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Lovely setting and it was very romantic sitting outside with just candlelight. Delicious food, good local white wine . Sitting at the front has the best views but can get a bit breezy.
