Description: The restaurant Dulcisinfundo is in front of the most suggestive breathtaking view of San Gimignano. Thanks to the medieval milieu and two deep granaries in the old floor, here time seems to have stopped. We propose the typical Tuscan cuisine and the raw materials used in preparing our dishes are of the highest quality and only served in season. Our chefs prepare all our recommended dishes individually and carefully. From the “antipasti” right through to the desserts and ice creams, everything is prepared using only selected products. We are also farm managers and offer you our property’s products. to ensure freshness, authenticity and just- picked flavour. Vegetables, aromatic herbs, pure saffron of S.Gimignano and extra virgin olive oil come from our own farm “ Fortezza de' Cortesi” only 5 km far from the restaurant. Several wines are available and some of them are very prestigious, however it's our pleasure suggesting to our guests high quality level products. We are open from Easter up to first days of November and during the Christmas and end of the year period. The day off is on Wednesday.

This restaurant is a "farm to table". We were strolling through San Gimignano during the day, keeping an eye open for a nice restaurant for that evening when we spotted this restaurant. Its really small and you could easily pass it and not realise how special a place you were missing out on!! The owner is a lovely man who shows great pride in his produce/restaurant. He has a fabulous Saffron tasting menu.. it's a must try!!!!! The saffron ice cream is to die for!! We were served by an exceptionally pleasant waiter.. unfortunately we didn't get his name. Really hope to return here some day.

We recently arrived late in the evening in San Gimignano from France, tired and hungry. We walked around trying to find a restaurant that was still serving. We came upon this "Oasis" of a restaurant. Quaint, great atmosphere, and welcoming-friendly owners. I happen to mention to the server that I cannot eat gluten. Her reply was straight from Heaven above: "Don't worry, we can make you a gluten-free pasta dish with any of our sauces, any way you like". My pasta was the most flavorful and delicious dish I had had in 8 days! The sauce was a rich and creamy ragu over perfect al' dente' pasta. My two traveling partners raved about their dishes as well. One had the pork meatballs, the other had a dish of stewed wild boar. Simply delicious! Great wine and wonderful mellow jazz playing in the background. A perfect ending to a long day. If you only have one meal in San Gimignano, have it here at DulcisinFundo. A lovely restaurant serving authentic Tuscan cuisine.

Roberto and his staff were extremely welcoming to our party with enjoyable conversations. The menu has a very nice selection of local fare. They serve fresh vegetables from the owners own garden picked fresh daily. The Pappardelle with pork cheek was delightfully light, perfect for an early afternoon dinner. The panoramic view of the valley just outside the restaurant will warrant several photos.

This is where we celebrated my 50th birthday. Because reservations are required so far in advance, everyone dining in the restaurant really wanted to be there. Consequently, there was a very positive "buzz" inside, and the entire evening was fantastic! A real gem.
