“Good food and view in San Gimignano -”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

We keep comingback to this restaurant whenin Italy, especially in San Gimignano. It is part of a Hotel tucked away on the side of the walls of this picturesque town inTuscany, overlooking the valleys and hillsides surrounding San G.
Food is always good, I orderd the Veal rump with beautiful sauce, nice wines, good service and the utmost wish to make sure you enjoy oyur meal and walk away full and satisfied. Only having come here at lunchtime, you may have to wait especially if you want a table at the windows overlooking the scenic vistas so suggestion that you perhaps find this place first, make your reservation and come back when required. There are tourists sure, however not cramped or uncomfortable, set a little off the beaten track down Via San Giovanni. Salut!

“One of the best meals on this trip to Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

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.

“Nice restaurant with an easy feel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

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.
