We were looking for a nice place to have lunch on a wet Dec day. This place looked welcoming and non-touristic, so we chose it for a long lunch. Ribolita plus pasta for primi were substantial. We followed this with the perfectly cooked beef tagliata and lamb cutlets. Both were lovely and we had a really nice Rosso di Montalcino with it. No room for dessert. Coffee with torrone was a nice finish. Our waiter was very helpful. Would return if another opportunity.

Such a darling space. Very modern and colorful,which really stands out in this medieval fortress town. Everything in the space, including the food is very pretty! We sat outside and had wine with our lunches. My boyfriend had pasta with rabbit and I ate Ribollita. Both were excellent. I think this is the best ribollita I've ever had.

The jazz sounded good and the staff were friendly, so we though 'Why not?' Walked in and we were pleasantly surprised. Tuscan 'Riboletta' for primi was spot on. Secondi was ribeye steak and sea bass. All topped off with the local Vernaccia San Gimignano white wine. All for a good mid range price. Well done guys! Molto buono!

Great food in an amazing atmosphere! We started our meal at dusk and watched the street lights come on and the moon rising between the buildings. Great place to watch people and they even provide shawls for those cool evenings. The service was great and the food was really wonderful.

We were staying in Florence and had a day trip out to Siena and San Gimignano. We arrived in San Gimignano at about 8:00 on 18 September. It was raining but we wanted to walk through the town to see what it was like. It was amazing. We found this restaurant and the owner invites us in and we sat by the door. We had Caprese Burrata to start followed by the risotto and ravioli finishing with a tiramisu. All washed down with a glass of chianti. The service was first class and very helpful and friendly. The food was exceptional. Well done and keep up the good work.
