First off, don't be afraid to ask for directions to this place. I reccomend printing out the name and address so you can have locals point you in the right direction. It's off the beaten path a little in town so you'll need a little help.

They are know for the wild boar dishes which were rich and delicious. They had a price fixed meal at the time but we opted to go for a few smaller dishes including the Pappardelle, Bruchetta Pomodora, and Risotto Peruca (which wasnt cooked as much as we normally like but like most Italian establishments al dente is harder then we're used to in the states so if you enjoy your pasta more cooked we suggest asking for them to make it that way when ordering. For the main course we had the Tagliata Ruc Porcini- Sliced ​​beef (served freely with rocket and pecorino cheese, porcini and lard and we tried the Cinghiale Vecchia Maniera (Wild boar in the old way - marinated with red wine and spices, cooked in psalms and served with potatoes and asparagus flan. I enjoyed my wife's wild boar more so then the sliced beef.

Overall this is a nice romantic spot that feels like your in some ones private celler and the food is all home cooked - you will certainly leave here full and satisfied.

The young man who served us spoke excellent English. It later transpired that he was from Albania. The service provided was absolutely first class. I say this knowing that some other visitors had expressed disappointment with the service and we were a bit wary when we entered the restaurant. But we had excellent service. The portions are extraordinarily generous. Our second course, mushroom risotto, was so large that we stopped eating it after consuming only a third of it. It was absolutely delicious but we knew there would be no room for the steak if we did not stop. The food and wine were really good and if we should ever pass by San Gimingano again we will definitely seek out Ristorante Peruca again.

We very much enjoyed our visit to Ristorante Peruca. It’s a little off the main tourist routes but well worth the small detour. The menu offered rich traditional Tuscan cuisine and the wines were local and good. We had no problems with the service: it was attentive and informed.

Ate here once and wouldn't go back again. Yea food was good (a bit rich for my palette) but service was terrible. Basically dumped at our table whilst angry looking woman scowled at us whilst she was clearing down other tables. Waiter was so slow to take our order. I like to take my time when eating out and to soak up the atmosphere but this was a joke. On the plus side this restaurant has about the best wine menu in San Gimigano. Such a shame the service let the restaurant down.

There were 12 of us seeking at restaurant in San Gimignano during one of the busiest times of the year after our previous plans had collapsed.We called for a reservation less than 24 hours in advance. Peruca had our two tables ready even though we got lost and were over a half and hour late. The service and the food was excellent--the pasta with pine nuts, cheese and pear was a crowd pleaser as well as the veal and cinghiale (wild boar)
Our waiter recommended delicious wine and we were surprised that the bill was less than expected. This is a cute, out of the way, (and difficult to find) cave like restaurant but don't be surprised to find it full of other Americans as we did. (Nothing wrong with that when the food and service is so good!)
