“Great view from the terrace”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Le Vecchie Mura is a very pretty restaurant: The view from the terrace is breathtaking, each table was nicely decorated with candles, even the room inside is pleasant. The service is efficient but nothing more, you are in a busy place that means business and you feel like just another tourist among the hundreds others. The food is very disappointing, it is just like the service: efficient but with no heart put into it. No flavour, nothing out of the ordinary. There is much, much better in Tuscany and in San Gimignano.

“From Vecchie Mura you can see the whole Tuscany!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Le Vecchie Mura seems to be on the wall around San Gimignano. You sit there and see so much! Reservation is mandatory - book a table during sunset!
Btw: the service is fine, the kitchen quite well.

“Good food & beautiful outdoor area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Unfortunately we didn't get to sit in the outdoor area. It was beautiful, candles on every table with a great view. Definitely book this area if you can.

We did sit inside which was also quite nice. We shared the bistecca alla Fiorentina which was pretty good. A little fatty but good quality. We had a nice Semifreddo dessert which we enjoyed.

If you can get the outdoor area, go, its really nice.

“An ok experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Service was ok, food were good. Not the best I have had in Tuscany, but still worth to give it a try.
