Lots of German tourists when we were there and seems the menu caters to them. Food was just average.

This is attached to the Sovestro Hotel, so it is really convenient if you are staying here. It also has parking if you aren't. The food was excellent. They have a patio, where you can even eat when it rains because the tables are under umbrellas. We had a pasta (shared), a chicken dish, and a boar dish. The latter... More

A nice outdoor seating outside of the village, and of course very convinient if you stay at the hotel. The food made with great ingredients and well cooked. We can reccomend the truffle gnoccis and the chicken with vin santo sauce.

I went to Ristorante da Pode for a business lunch. A small resort nested among San Gimignano hills. We had a table outside, in the shade of trees. The starters were delicious, plenty of specialties, including local cold cuts. The big ravioli with garlic ragout, quite tasty, were excellent. A nice place, you may also relax at the swimming pool... More

Perfect view, great food and wine. Simply a great experience. We have dined in this restaurant 3 years in a row. The reason is quite simple. Nothing has beaten the experience! Wine card is big and covers all wishes. The food is excellent. Try the wild boar, ravioli or something else. You will not be disappointed! Simply the best!

We didn't make a reservation and had to wait a few minutes but we drank something on the hotel's terrace. We had a lovely waitress called elisa who was very nice and kind. The food was really nice. I had gnocchi, roasted chicken and panna cotta. Everything was really delicious. It is a little bit more expensive but it's certainly... More

We had dinner here and it was my least favourite of all the meals we had in Tuscany. The Ribollita was very heavy and not terribly appealing. The pasta seemed a tad under done and the pork was only so - so. The dessert may have been really good had I gotten the chance to eat it all. It was... More

Delicious and fresh food. Service is excellent. We ate there 3-4 times as we stayed at hotel Sovestro. Once we received a piece of chicken that was kind of ray but it got fixed professionally. We are satisfied.

This is a few kilometres outside San Gimignano and quite easy to miss. There was a good crowd there. The only problem was that we found the menu to be a little limiting and could have more choice. However, we all found that what they did they did really well. The pate I had was very good and the entrecôte... More

We ate here our first night in Tuscany, after driving from Milan to stay in this hotel. We tried the chingale - wild boar, a regional specialty, which seemed to be slow cooked and very tender. Accompanied by bread and wine, both good, it was a feast.
