Came here to get the traditional Florentine steak, and wow it was amazing! one of the top steaks i have ever eaten. Very well cooked with amazing flavours from their dry aging process. Also ordered a Pizza with it which was amazing, and probably a mistake as didnt realize the size of the steaks, but still worth eating it all!

Very good welcoming staff. Waiters are able to advise customers which is not common anymore in this industry.

The cuisine was authentic and very tasty. Ingredients of high quality ( Beef, fresh pasta, zucchini, safran).

Not always easy to park next to the restaurant.

Due to high volume of diners we were placed in the upstairs dining room all by ourselves, which couldn’t have worked out better since we have a rambunctious 2 and 5 year old. The pizza crust were great, crusty outside with a chewy center and a touch of sweetness. Sauces were perfect in taste but I would say they were a bit on the watery side if I’m being nit picky. Each pizza developed the delicious crust bubbles that come from fire roasting. Local vernaccia was a nice pre course to dinner as well as the ubiquitous Aperol spritz(my first ever, not bad but I can live without it). Charcuterie was good as expected in these parts, dressed with local speck(essentially a smoky lard), prosciutto, and salami.

Had a few meals here whilst in San Gimignano mostly pizzas but we did splash out on Bistecca Fiorentina one night. All the food is good quality & a pizza & a carafe of house red is amazing value. The staff are friendly & helpful. Very impressed.

Really enjoyed this restaurant, so much so that we went twice during our 4 night stay in San Gmignano. On our first visit we had the steaks. Second time - wood-fired pizzas. My husband loved his Calzone. We also saw another family who had visited twice too. A casual, relaxing, family atmosphere with delicious food.
