There are only a handful of restaurants in San Miniato and Enoteca Piazza del Popolo is teh best. Small with only a few tables inside and out. The night was cold and windy but otherwise it would be nice to eat outside facing the piazza. The service and food was really good. I had chicken liver on brushetta. The best I've ever eaten. mu husband had the fillet, but he said the fillet was perfect, the purple lettuce cold (who eats lettuce with fillet) as was the cold duck fat they use as garnish. Desert of creme brûlée and a fruit cake was good.
Their wines are really good - they are an enoteca.

Overall this tiny restaurant looks and feels quite ok, we liked the menu as well. Unfortunately don't go there with kids - there is nothing to eat for them there.
It gets a nice crowd of young people that sit outside and has very nice interior.

This is quite a small place run by a team of young people who seem to be very serious about what they do.
It was very busy, mostly young people. The front of house young lady is very knowledgable about the wine and we were impressed.
The menu is quite daring, some works, others not, but they are pushing the boundaries and desperate to please.
We enjoyed our meal in a buzzy atmosphere. Not cheap but you are paying for the postcode!
We wish them well and hope they go from strength to strength.

This small restaurant has quirky modern decor. The waiter was knowledgable and helpful. For our evening meal we chose the house red wine and a local blonde beer, which were both excellent. The tiny pickled beetroot and yoghurt appetiser, beautifully presented and very tasty set the tone for the meal. Our starters (an onion and Roquefort tart and a 'garden of spring vegetables') were equally good. The main courses (tagliatelle with pancetta, and maccharoni with green pesto and a light cheese) struggled to match the high standard of the starters. But overall this is a small gem of a restaurant with intriguing flavours, cleverly blended and exquisitely presented in a pleasantly unusual environment. Definitely worth a try.

This is a terrific little restaurant. Highly rated by fellow users of Trip Advisor, we headed there for lunch during a visit to the lovely town of San Miniato, and we weren't disappointed. The Italian menu was expertly translated to us by our very helpful waiter (waiter sounds derisory, as the guy could not have been more helpful in ensuring we had a great meal). The food choices ranged from classic Italian, to more adventurous Tuscan dishes (asparagus soup; steak tartare; rabbit). The pasta dishes were more thought out than the obvious - I had a lovely spaghetti pomodoro with spicy peppers to follow my steak tartare starter. We asked our hosts recommend the wine, and he suggested a lovely chianti, at a very affordable 16 Euros.
The overall meal was good value, the ambience was great (the decor is very contemporary) and I would highly recommend a visit - just make sure you book, as it is not the biggest restaurant inside!
