“A nice lunch!”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

We stopped for lunch, this restaurant has set price lunch in addition to al la carte, we chose the set menu. The food was good the service was somewhat slow, we sat outside as the weather was nice and sunny, there is good seating available also inside. We both had pasta dishes, mine was with pesto the serve was very good and it tasted beautiful, pasta perfectly cooked.If you sit outside sit near the low wall and you will get a great view across the countryside!

“Won't Eat Here Again”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

It was a Monday and our first choice of restaurant was closed so we decided to try Locanda San Domenico. Service was okay, the wine was good but the food was disappointing. The Tuscan vegetable soup was a thick mush-paste that had little taste; the vegetables were so over cooked that they had no texture or taste. My partner had the deer which was an extremely over-salted stew; were they hiding the taste for a reason? I had a steak which came out cooked right and was good, but the menu said "with vegetables". I didn't think two lettuce leaves and 3 small slices of tomato were the veggies, but I guess so. Another couple near us returned both of their main courses; one accepted the returned plate but the other gave up. However, the terrace view is nice. Have a drink, skip the food.

“Nice view but very disappointing food”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

The only positive thing I can say about this restaurant is the nice view! The food was really disappointing and expensive. I would not go there again and I wiuld not suggest it to anybody. My simple advice is to avoid it as there are other much better restaurants in San Gimignano serving better quality food at much nicer atmosphere.

“For the view and the food”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

This wonderful restaurant has the most beautiful out door terrace and gardens with magnificent views of the valley. The sunsets are gorgeous to watch as you devour a magnificent meal. The staff are wonderful and friendly. Make sure you book an out door table as the view is not to be missed.

“Beautiful restaurant”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

We stopped in for a quick lunch and had a great meal. The help does seem indifferent but were as good as most other waitresses we encounted. The Rustic soup was s trembly good.
