We were lucky to get a table here (need to book) and were very pleased with the food, service and ambiance. They do some BIG steaks if you like. We had excellent pasta dishes. Wine list is very good. Good value too.

We had a fantastic dinner here, service was great, as was the wine, but the star of the evening was the bacon wrapped filet! It was so tender and cooked perfectly! What a great way to end our time in San Gimignano

We loved this place so much! After trying a steak Florentine in a few different places on our Tuscany trip, the one we had at Il Ceppo was hands down the best. Service was great and attentive. It's always a good sign when locals go...More

Enjoyed an amazing meal here during our stay in Sam Gimignano. Excellent Fiorentina steak with gratin potatoes and a decent local Chianti. Quite possibly the best steak I’ve ever tasted and our 9 year old son is a total convert!
