Excellent service and ambiance. The food was excellent, we ordered Bistecca Fiorentina and are happy we had it here and not in Florence. A must go!

We ate here our first night in town. The service was ok and the food was ok, but there are simply better places in San Gimignano. There are also WORSE places to eat and it is nice to have a place outside the gates if the village is very crowded or you would like to drive to a restaurant. You might want to check their hours of service. We couldn't figure them out and we actually went one night to get an easy dinner and they were closed...

We found this restaurant on our first evening in San Gimignano. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. Between the 4 of us we ordered a wide variety of dishes and they were all really good. Would recommend this restaurant, it is worth walking round the corner for and it is competitively priced too.

We dropped on the pizzeria by chance as it is round a corner from most of the other eating places. We were not disappointed. Service was good and the pasta was excellent. Wine was good too. The place was full of Italians too - a good sign that this is a good place to eat. Would recommend

As vegetarians the selection in Italy is minimal and that is understandable. This is why we always make sure that whenever ordering we make sure that there is no meat or fish whatsoever in any dish that we order. My wife is full blooded Italian and was born there so it wasn't like there was a language barrier.

We ordered the Bruschetta with Toscana sauces. (this was the translation in the menu). My wife asked if there was any meat or fish in the dish and the server said "no". After taking a bite my wife spit the food out and we immediately told the server nicely of the situation. There was no apology or nothing else offered. We just got a blank look and he replied, "Oh it's usually not there." After receiving our meals we noticed that we were the only table that didn't receive any bread or the caddy of olive oil and vinegar. Finally the server just happened to pass our table and my wife had to say excuse me twice to get his attention to ask for what is typically served in all restaurants Italy. The ravioli I had was good but the portion was small and the rest of the food tasted mediocre.

After receiving the bill we noticed that they charged us for the Bruschetta that had meat. I was shocked and my wife nicely said to the server that she felt that it should not have been on the bill. It was the principle of trying to make it right and nothing was done at all, not even an apology. The server only said, " Fine then"very rudely. As we left, not even a goodbye. It was like they were doing us a favour by them serving us and us eating there. I do not recommend this restaurant, even if you are not a vegetarian!
