“Hidden gem in San Gimignano”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We found this lovely little place by accident while meandering around the streets of San Gimignano on a hot day in August. It is hidden in Vicolo Mainardi not far from the City gate at the opposite end of town to Porto San Giovanni. It is small but air-conditioned with a huge selection of delicious Bruschette at around 7-9 euros per portion. If you only require a snack then one portion would probably be enough to share. There is rock music playing in the background - but not too loudly- as the owner has a real interest in groups such as Black Sabbath. Very pleasant staff and well worth a visit.

“good food.. good beers.. good music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012 via mobile

Echoes stands for the name of a pink floyd song on the album 'meddle'.
The host is really passionned by rock music, and by the pink floyd world.. He serves very good and varied bruschette at a very reasonable price for the town.. if you speak a little italian, do not hesitate to talk to the guy around music and italian food.. you will become a friend of the house! You can drink very good beers, very different from the usual 'nastro azurro' or 'peroni' or 'moretti'..
a very good place to eat in San Gimignano.. long life to 'echoes'!
