We reserved a table on the terrace at the railing and it was ready for us and just perfect. What a view and well worth the extra they charge. Our meal was excellent and so was the service. We highly recommend this restaurant and hope to get back to Tuscany soon!

Our hotel suggested we try this place and we went without a reservation in high season (august). When we arrived there were lots of people waiting for tables. We asked for a table out in the garden terrace, first inside and then to the outside maitre d' and were told they were fully booked but to wait in the back... More

First and foremost the meal was lovely, we sat outside and the views are amazing, period. When we arrived the outside area was full so you get offered a seat in the garden waiting area and there was a bottle of prosecco and nibbles to help yourself to, very nice touch. As much as we enjoyed our meal we thought... More

We went to the restaurant at 19:00 on Saturday without a reservation and we were lucky to get a table for 4 on the terrace. The experience was perfect - the food is fantastic, especially the ravioli with truffle sauce. But all other dishes were delicious as well. The view from the terrace is spectacular! The service is also perfect... More

This is the third time we've eaten at this restaurant over the years, but our first without the kids. We booked a table on the edge of the terrace overlooking the wonderful Tuscan countryside and had truly memorable meal to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary. The spinach and ricotta ravioli with truffle sauce was completely amazing! We will definitely return.

I had come across this restaurant on Trip Advisor before our trip & when we arrived in San Gimignano on a Wednesday in early August, we made a beeline for it. In our two week stint in Italy, it was the restaurant with the best view & the food was very good also. We got a table without a reservation... More

A reservation is a must make. Particularly if you desire a table on the terrace overlooking the timeless views of the unspoilt Tuscan Vineyards and olive groves. Heaven on earth. All aspects of the food were equally breathtaking. The service, professional, polite and sometimes amusing. This place is busy, busy, busy. As a team the staff work wonders to serve... More

On the outside, the outdoor seating is hidden behind a wall that blocks off the view. Once you walk through the door though, you see the panoramic view that suddenly pops up. It's quite a nice touch. As for the food, both the cacio e pepe and the spaghetti with pesto were stellar dishes and of course, the wine was... More

Recommended by friends who had been here during their stay last year - the views are amazing and the food is very, very good. Make sure you book in advance to get a table on the terrace - it's all about the view!

The views are icing on the cake, however high quality and delicious food at reasonable prices are the real draw. Despite being in a small town, it is one of the most delicious meals we've had on our trip! Only open for dinner so book ahead.
