Great time at l'upupa. Small restaurant with typical toscanian dishes. Great service, only eight tables. Very friendly waitress and cook. Truffles were amazing.

Whether you are staying in San Miniato or just in the area, you must try out Osteria l"Upupa. We chose to have dinner here when we arrived in San Miniato, basically based on the fact that it is one of the few places open on Sunday evening. What an excellent meal! Gnochettini with pear and walnuts, Tagliarini with black truffle,... More

We had lunch at L'Upupa while travelling through Tuscany. This is a cute little place off the main street of San Miniato. The restaurant is quirky and authentically Italian. With about 8 tables, it is cosy and really charming. The place is decorated with lots of Italian memorabilia. Our waiter, and owner, prepared a delicious lunch of fresh mushrooms that... More

I had a late dinner in this tiny family restaurant! The main theme is around truffles and local food! If you want pizza, go somewhere else. But the you will miss this true gem! Try the steak with truffle and rosemary baked potato and have some house wine! Great experience! I want to go back!

This is a good place to go if you like truffles; if you don't, you may wish to give it a miss since the odor of truffles is part of its ambiance. It features typical Tuscan country fare. Fore example, we chose the house antipasto and it included one plate with horse meat and another with tripe. The latter was... More

We were lucky to get a table here as we didn't book. We soon learnt that you need to book in San miniato! The staff were very accommodating considering and got us a table immediately. We tried the White truffle risotto at 30 euros, which we later realised was quite pricey for the local area and we felt the flavours... More

You won't leave L'Upupa hungry. It delivers good honest Tuscan fare, well cooked with excellent local ingredients, in full accordance with its image. The house wines are very acceptable and excellent value. Having dined there on a Sunday night it was clear that this is where the locals go to eat, and they're not disappointed. This is not the place... More

We (my family including two children age 3 and 4) had lunch and dinner in this beautiful small restaurant 4 (!) times this week. We could eat here all year long. The service is so kind and the dinner is so great. We cannot pick one thing, because everything was delicious. So this is really a MUST GO in San... More

Tuscan food tasty, table outdoor in an Ancient Street. Service quick without rushing (even if our seats were booked). Two adults and two children, which means one (big) starter, one first dish, three seconds, wine, beer and water=77€.

We had a very nice meal with nice pastas with creamy and non creamy sauce. Truffles were fresh and savoury. Meat dishes did not disappoint either and the service was perfect. They even offered us some extra wine. Would definitely return.
