San Gimignano's crowd was a little bit too much for us so we decided to look for a restaurant off the beaten path. On Tripadvisor we found this little Il Ceppo. Went downstairs and found it almost empty. Cozy little place with super kind service....More

We had the spiral pasta with sausage and it was beyond amazing. Only restaurant we eat at twice during our 2 week trip through Italy!

This restaurant is away from the main piazza but is definitely worth the stroll to find it. Sitting outside on the terrace you get a pleasant view of the valley. The food and service is excellent and there are good choices available to cater for...More
