“Delicious food, beautiful view, incredible company!”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

This beautiful place was a favorite stop on my honeymoon. My husband and I traveled to 16 cities in Italy, but the warmth and hospitality we felt at Caffe Giardino was unparalleled. We found ourselves going back every day we were in town. Francesca greeted us every morning with a smile, and we sat by the window sipping cappuccinos and talking for hours. The food was fresh and flavorful, and there's really something for everyone on the menu. Do yourself a favor and spend some real time at this eatery. Get to know Francesca and her husband. It's the kind of authentic Italian experience many people hope for and I guarantee you'll find yourself returning again and again.

“Lovely restaurant and owners”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

I would highly recommend this small eatery for lunch. We stopped on the way into town for lunch. The food was great and the two owners who are the only staff were very friendly and welcoming. We liked it so much we stopped by for coffee after our visit to the town.

“Fantastic little gem”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

We stumbled upon this lovely little eatery on arriving in San Gimignano on a drizzly weekday afternoon and had a fantastic lunch with friends. The staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful, and the menu was full of homemade delights, including bruschetta and salads; all delicious. I can also highly recommend the freshly brewed coffee. A must stop for lunch if in the area

“Authentic, friendly. A must for lunch”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

Forget the tourist trap rip off within the walls. This family run little gem is just outside the main gate. A genuinely friendly welcome awaits you and the food is superb. The bread is home baked and delicious. There is an extensive sandwich menu and the salads that my wife and I had were wonderful. You can book in advance. Ask for the table with the view which is stunning. All in all a great lunch venue.
