Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

For our last night in San Gimignano we picked this place based on the reviews. We loved it…the owner and son are quite characters who make the experience fun. We had the house wine, couple primis and rabbit…everything was wonderful! Highly recommend for the fun,...nice location and delicious food. Paying in euros was no problem as being aware from reviews was helpful.More

We had almost decided not to eat at San Gimignano - so many restaurants all with huge and similar menus! But then we found the Trattoria Chiribiri a the top of some quiet steps. The menu was short but original and varied. We ate an...excellent meal - crostini misti, followed by rabbit with a Tuscan sauce. Very good quality, well presented, at a correct price. With water, wine and coffee we paid €57. Service excellent and prompt.More

Reading the reviews, the main criticism seems to be about the staff. We had a meal here last night and it was great fun. It seems to be owned by father and son(s) and they are very funny. If you are in the mood and...join in, it raises the place to very good and we had a most enjoyable evening The food was good but probably no better than many other places, but if you are up for a characterful evening, come here.More

I picked this restaurant last minute (after looking at multiple reviews of places in town), and so glad we went. My husband, two sons (12 & 15), and I walked up to the patio from the steps and asked for a table. We never even...saw the inside, but I know they were already full. They were so accommodating. Our waiter didn't seem to be fluent in English so he got (what I assume was) the owner, who was amusingly critical of my bad attempt at Italian, but dealt with us very well. I ordered tagliolini with saffron & zucchini (so good), my 15-year old ordered steak covered in a gorgonzola sauce (he devoured it), and my 12-year old ordered the stewed rabbit. He had never eaten rabbit, but he spent 20+ minutes scarfing it down to the amazement of the staff. They even brought him a 3rd basket of bread so he could continue to sop up all of the yummy sauce. They joked about his appetite as they came back three times to get his dishes and discovered that he was still eating. We all loved our food, the wine, and the service and would definitely come back.More

Since we first ate at this restaurant, we have always returned every time we are in San Giminiano. We will continue the tradition, because the people are nice and genuine, the food is excellent, and we simply feel at home. This is how a traditional...restaurant should be.More

You may be intrigued by the charming little terrace. But you may be up for a disappointment. The place seems to be a nice family-run restaurant, but the family is not really caring. Food was home-made - but actually not good. The waiter was making...too many dodgy jokes with our kids touching them a bit too often. And finally the bill was overcharging us, showing different prices for the wine than the menu ... In total: go somewhere else!More

This little trattoria is down the hill a little from the centre, but is relatively sensibly priced and provides nice food. The staff seem straight out of Goodfellas - in a good way; they seem to respond well to playfulness.

We had a wonderful late lunch here. It was recommended to us by a local in San Gimignano. We ordered their special of the day without expecting anything and wow it was one of the best meal we had in Italy. The price is very...competitive too. The owner and staff are very friendly and polite. Highly recommended!!More

Standard of food very poor - cannelloni cold inside. Roast suckling pig served cold, white wine warm. Lots of better alternative places to eat, best avoided.

Food is basic and poor in taste. The waiters want to be friendly but they press and check if everything is ok ( every 3 minutes). Our bill was 37€ and we couldn't use our card. We had to go find an ATM because they...didn't accept the visa. So disappointing.More

We had found a review on the guardian recommending this trattoria. We were not disappointed. The chef is incredibly passionate about getting everything just right and the waiter was very helpful. We had three courses and a litre of house wine (which was excellent) The...small courtyard is quiet and intimate off of the bustling thoroughfare. Will be recommending to friends. Got a picture with the chef below 👍More

Sadly we had a HORRIBLE experience at this restaurant. and it put a damper on our afternoon in San Gimignano. Service was atrocious by the VERY VERY rude waiter and chef. Food was good, however the 5 of us paid up and left immediately after...our food arrived as we were dumbfounded at the way we were treated for no reason at all. A terrible experience. I should’ve read the other complaints on trip advisor prior to giving these people my time and money. :(More
