Description: The Renaissance banquets at the Medici court with game and vegetables of the lands of Tuscany come back to life in The Manger restaurant menu in the center of San Gimignano. In Via Mainardi in the stables of an ancient building, Susi and Paul Nannelli have recreated the atmosphere of other times, offering a cuisine that is inspired precisely by the ancient recipes reworked in a modern way: fillet of venison with vin santo and mushrooms, Wild Boar Remigio de 'Nannini and wild boar in sweet and sour sauce are just some of the unusual dishes to try for sure. The restaurant is run by Mrs. Susi who chooses only local products for the preparation of the dishes presented to guests with care even in appearance. Do not miss the Tuscan specialties such as Ribollita or pappardelle with wild boar, much loved by foreign tourists who visit the locale.Il restaurant is located in the historical center a few steps from Piazza Sant'Agostino in a living room with stone walls and brick arches ancients. The atmosphere is rustic and elegant and is eaten with a background in classical music. In summer there stands outdoors to enjoy in addition to the kitchen even the atmosphere of the medieval village. The management is friendly: the spouses Nannelli together with their daughters Annalisa and Giulia will welcome you with kindness and cordiality.

“Good restaurant with typical Toscana food!”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I went to la Mangiatoia during our visit in San Gimignano and we were so happy to have found a characteristic Toscana restaurant for food and style, very cosy and welcoming.
The service wasn't the best as a bit slow and the house wine not amazing but overall the experience was good for the excellent food and the price not too expensive!

“A taste of Tuscany's delicacies”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

We had dinner at this nice restaurant inside the walled town of San Gimignano; great food from local cuisine; it's really difficult to order something that isn't tasty! Go for the meat and you won't mistake it!

“GREAT LITTLE RESTAURANT FOR LUNCH WHILST VISITING SAN GIMIGNANO”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Arrived in San Gimignano to very heavy rain. We decided to have lunch waiting for the rain to pass. What a great find. We were seated at a window seat so we could look out on to the street. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was very busy but we were looked after in no time. It doesnt have a big lunch menu but what we we ordered was great. Really lovely pasta and salad then we had coffee.
I would highly recommend this restaurant who was visiting San Gimignano.

“Great Tuscan food”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

The Tuscan food tends to be from the land and quite rich. Casseroles and slow cooked food. The venison was excellent, succulent and very tender. You will have a good meal here.

“Delicious gluten free pasta”
Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

After finding this gem we couldn't resist but go two nights in a row. Amazing carbonara truffle pasta was our highlight although we tried a few dishes and they were all great. You must try the desserts as well as they are truly the perfect end to the meal.
