We called last minute and were able to get a 9PM table. We were able to sit on the terrace in such wonderful weather. The waiter and staff were very friendly and helpful. We speak absolutely no Italian and they made us feel at home. Delicious Buschetta al Pomodoro to start followed by Gnocchi all'ollio, cacio e Pepe and Trenette... More

We went to lunch. Got a Nice tablet with a good view. We enjoyed the good food and service. It was a heavy Bill but it was worth it.

...with a stellar view, 9 years since our last visit. We went for an unctuously-creamy saffron-based pasta dish which should have been shared. Tasted my friend's sugo di cinghiale with pappardelle and realised I had only myself to blame!

...And we've tasted some excellent food during the last 10 days. The staff were fantastic especially our sweet little waitress, sorry no name. When the torrential rain started during our starter course they set to work getting everyone inside very quickly. The food was fantastic...Two different antipasti to share between 3 was just the right amount and delicious. Main course...My... More

The hotel exceeded its 3* rating and the restaurant well exceeded that in quality, variety, service and at reasonable prices (for Tuscany).

Great restaurant for family dinner! Homemade pasta- the pappardelle with wild boar ragout & gnocchi-some of the best we have ever had! Also had nice baccala, veal and steak dishes. This is our "go to" restaurant in San Gimignano! Reasonably priced and terrific al fresco dining on the patio.

Staying nearby as a group of 10, we had this restaurant recommended to us by our property manager. The terrace setting was beautiful. Our service for the evening was very, very good. Our single consistent problem was that the food (all different orders) was very salty. I had the cinghiale (boar) over papardelle. The quality of the food was very... More

We've been coming back to Tuscany for the past 18 years, and a highlight is having supper at Ristorante da Pode. We look forward to our return, and the food this year did not disappoint. I still think the grilled chicken and roasted potatoes are second to none. My wife had the Tortolloni damPode and it was great as well.... More

This is a very good restaurant attached to the Hotel Sovestro. They serve typical Tuscan dishes in a friendly manner. The restaurant is well appointed without being fussy, wait staff are attentive but don't crowd you, this is a lovely example of a typical family run Italian restaurant. Dishes are pretty heavy (lots of cream and meat and game) but... More
