We went on recommendation from our hosts at agriturismo cesani and it was truely a great choice. The restaurant provided a break from the masses of other turists and the food was excellent. Highly recommend the saffron pasta with sausage.

Just back of Hotel L'Antico Pozzi is this magnificent eatery. You must book and you'll enjoy a moderately priced, cracking cuisine under the night sky with the towers of San Gimingnano rising above you. I'd recommend the Tuscan Grilled sliced beef with nothing the than a Chianti Classico from Fontodi -the wine waiters suggestion when I gave him a 40... More

This charming restaurant is conveniently located in the heart of San Gimignano, away from the crowds. Food is good but nothing exceptional, the service is slightly above average. Nevertheless it deserves my 4 stars as a whole.

We ate here at the recommendation of the owners of the agriturismo we were staying at, but we wish we listened to the TripAdvisor reviews instead. We were first seated inside because the group at the table they planned to sit us at weren't finished and later moved outside. The appetizers were pretty good. The truffle pate was to die... More

We were lucky to get a table outside without reservation. Recommend to book in advance! Very nice location with view towards the famous towers. Service was excellent and the food was good.

We had a wonderful experience. Charming place, great food, very nice service. A great place to go for lunch or dinner. I had a wonderful bean soup, and my wife and daughter had great pasta.

We were looking for a place to dinner and we found it by chance. With outdoor terrace, it is ideal to enjoy a summer dinner. High quality autochthonous food. Delicious antipasti and pasta. Maybe smaller rations than we liked but nice holiday experience. We would like to come back again.

Had dinner twice there - once outside on the terrace, once inside. Friendly staff, good service, delicious pasta and incredibly tender deer/venison. Try this!

We greatly enjoyed our lunch. I had the most delicious soup and my husband that a set of pates. We were very glad that we hunted and found this restaurant - off the beaten track - very relaxing and excellent food.

One of the appetizers, a cheese flan, came half cold and with a taste of stale likely because it has just came out of the microwave oven. Just another overrated and pricey restaurant with unfriendly personnel.
