We decided to visit San Gimingnano one afternoon while touring around Tuscany. We did not stay overnight in this town, and glad to not do so due to the fact it is generally so crowded. Even though the town seemed so filled with tourists (and their huge buses) we really enjoyed the meal we had at this restaurant. The service was excellent, the food was even better, and the view from our table was spectacular. I recommend the salad with tuna. This meal was also a break from the wine for us, as we ventured into the local brews on the menu. A great beverage choice for a less formal lunch.

This is a restaurant of a hotel near the edge of the village. It has a stunning view across the Tuscan countryside. We booked three or four hours before we wanted dinner and all the tables next to the window were reserved but the view is still good from the other tables. This is a lively but not noisy restaurant with exceptionally helpful staff. The tables are a good size and not crammed in so whilst busy you still have a sense of space around you. The food was very good (the wild boar stew is recommended) and the wine list caters for most tastes and budgets. We liked the place, it has an easy feel, and we recommend it.

Beautiful restaurant, with spectacular views. Service was exceptional with very professional waiters. Food was very good, we sampled the meatballs,lamb and beef tartare and all were of very high quality. Would definitely recommend and would visit again.

On a fantastic holiday in Italy, we wanted to revisit San Gimignano for a nice meal. We had made a reservation over the phone a couple of hours prior to our arrival. Upon arrival, our waiter took us to a table in the middle of the room. I questioned whether we could have the table near the window as I could see this was empty, but he rudely and abruptly said that this table had been reserved. I politely explained that we had reserved our table also, but not to worry. He then started shouting at my mother, who had booked over the phone, saying that she was lying and that he had told her over the phone it was near the window. My mother knows that the window was not mentioned at all in the booking, and of course we were all incredibly offended that this rude waiter had accused my mother of lying. I asked to see his manager given his rude tone and utterly unsatisfactory language, and we were left awaiting like lemons for a good few minutes. We then decided to leave without eating after the shock of how offensively impolite the waiter had been. (He clearly hadn't told his manager as he asked us if everything was ok when we were leaving!) The point is, we didn't even care about the window seat, but the way this particular waiter handled the situation was frankly unhelpful and unpleasant. Don't go here!!!
