Even though this place is just outside the walls of San Gimignano the food and ambiance more than makes up for its location (In our experience in Tuscany the closer to the tourist centre you get the less authentic and more expensive food). As many have mentioned it is only a small place so you better be early or late, and the tables are close together but that is something we felt added to the ambiance. The food was really good quality, you could tell it was fresh and local. We had cinghiale (wild boar) stewed in an olive sauce and papardelle with porcini mushrooms and they were both excellent... we also saw many other plates leaving the kitchen which looked just as tasty! A nice detail was the decoration around the edges of the plates which also were spices or things to add to the dish to enhance the flavours, so you could add to your own taste. Unfortunately we only found this place on our last night or we would definitely have returned as there were so many other things we wanted to try on the menu!!

Found this place in TA recommendations. Many people inside San Gimignano walls, but Rigoletto is situated 100 meters outside the walls and the south entrance.
It's a tranquil and tiny restaurant with nice food at fair prices. We tried lasagna and tiramisú with great results. Also a great view of tuscan lands, if you are able to have the table near the window.

We found this place quite by chance on our penultimate night in San Gimignano and enjoyed our meal so much that we returned the following evening, when we were lucky enough to get the 'window table'. The view from here is unequalled and the restaurant is worth visiting purely for that reason alone. However the food was also very good and reasonably priced for San Gimignano. The chocolate cake with ice cream was the best I have tasted and the other courses were just as good. The staff were very pleasant and obliging. Any stay in San Gimignano should inlcude a meal at this restaurant.

Tiny little place. Need to book if you want the only window table.

Great onion soup and brilliant runny chocolate cake with ice cream.
