Apart from the beautiful setting of this restaurant the food that is served is of a superior quality. All the dishes are exquisitely prepared most by the chef and even the produce is fresh and withing the proximity of the restaurant. Well no words can describe the quality of the food served here I suggest that you pay a visit to immerse yourself and savour these genuine Tuscan tastes.

Maybe it was just late. Maybe we were tired. Maybe the lack of parking made a long walk to it a pain. Maybe the mixup in orders made things less than expected. Our pizza was fine, but not the world beating experience others had reported. Do you expect great pizza in a Tuscan hill town? We didn't and still don't. We will be glad to hear from others who had a better time at Il Trovatore.

You won’t find many available places to park when going to this restaurant, then, be aware of this.

We have had the full course. Perfect entrees with couverts and salads.

1st plate was pizza and lasagna
2nd plate was a whole steak. Difficult to eat but still wonderful.

Dessert: Panacotta, gelato and tiramissu. Perfect.

A wide menu of wine. Don’t be shy in ordering the local
Wine. Just wonderful.

Went here on the recommendation of our B&B and it was a good choice. We were not sure about the place when we arrived as we were the only ones there. Within 5 minutes the place was almost full. We had pizza and it was fantastic. We heard others talking about how good other items on the menu were so they obviously get repeat customers. The server was very friendly and we felt at home here. We would definitely return to Il Trovatore. This restaurant is outside the walls of the village of San Gimignano and it is really is worth venturing outside the town to enjoy a meal here.

Best pizza of our lives and a very nice service!
We came here for two nights during our stay.
We had a pizza Traviata and Pizza Tonno e Cipolla. Amazing!
