“Great people, great food, stunning view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

We lived in San Gimignano for 5 months, and have been back many times since. Most of our special nights out were at this restaurant. We have had many excellent meals there, often sitting 12 or more at the table, with every person leaving feeling very well fed and well taken care of. Roberto Bagnai is a particularly fine host. He says he speaks food English, but he does very well at it. He will do virtually anything for his customers. The food is very good, and not too expensive, particularly when you consider the friendly atmosphere and panoramic Tuscan view. This is an unforgettable place, run by some unforgettable people. We will be back.

“Good food in a unique atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

This restaurant is located on the top of the city walls of San Gimignano, offering incomparable views of the surrounding area. Often, a restaurant like this would get by in its stunning location and nearly ignore the quality of the food, but that's not at all the case here. We had fresh buffala mozzarella, gnocchi with truffle sauce, penne arrabiatta (not terribly spicy), steak, and great wine. The service was friendly and the inside and outside of the restaurant were both beautiful. It's consistently busy, so reservations would definitely be recommended.

“Lovely dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

It's not all about the food at Le Vecchie Mura, it's the whole experience! Although it was very good, it wasn't the best food that I have had in Italy, however dinner on the panoramic terrace really is something not to be missed in San Gimignano! Such stunning views, really relaxing, good service & reasonable price. Lovely evening all round - considering we came across the restaurant by accident!!

Bit Chilly in October but this is an eating stablishment where they could sell just pizzas and it would still be excellent just because of the view !!

“Tasty and authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

After failing to find a place to eat without previous reservation in San Gimignano, we found this restaurant thanks to TripAdvisor. Although we didn't have a reservation, they almost instantly gave us a table. Restaurant was almost full, mostly with locals and other Italians.
Menu consists of typical Tuscan and Italian dishes, reasonably priced. Price for one appetizer, two main dishes, one dessert and one bottled water was around 40 €.
