Description: The restaurant Dulcisinfundo is in front of the most suggestive breathtaking view of San Gimignano. Thanks to the medieval milieu and two deep granaries in the old floor, here time seems to have stopped. We propose the typical Tuscan cuisine and the raw materials used in preparing our dishes are of the highest quality and only served in season. Our chefs prepare all our recommended dishes individually and carefully. From the “antipasti” right through to the desserts and ice creams, everything is prepared using only selected products. We are also farm managers and offer you our property’s products. to ensure freshness, authenticity and just- picked flavour. Vegetables, aromatic herbs, pure saffron of S.Gimignano and extra virgin olive oil come from our own farm “ Fortezza de' Cortesi” only 5 km far from the restaurant. Several wines are available and some of them are very prestigious, however it's our pleasure suggesting to our guests high quality level products, also by the glass.We are open from Easter up to first days of November and during the Christmas and end of the year period. The day off is on Wednesday. Il ristorante "Dulcisinfundo" si trova di fronte al punto panoramico più suggestivo di San Gimignano. Qui l'ambiente medievale e due profondi granai inseriti nell'antico pavimento danno l'impressione che il tempo si sia fermato. La nostra è una cucina tipica rivisitata e Il menù varia a secondo della stagione . Le materie prime utilizzate per la preparazione dei piatti sono di primissima qualità e dagli antipasti ai dolci, ed anche i gelati, tutto viene preparato personalmente dai nostri chefs Mettiamo in pratica il sistema della filiera corta e per garantirvi la freschezza, la genuinità e il sapore del prodotto appena colto forniamo direttamente al ristorante le erbe aromatiche, l’olio extravergine di oliva, le verdure dell’orto e lo zafferano purissimo DOP che vengono coltivati nella nostra azienda agricola “ Fortezza de' Cortesi” a soli 5 km dal Dulcisinfundo. Le etichette dei vini sono sia prestigiose che meno note, ma è nostra cura garantire sempre l'ottimo livello dei prodotti che offriamo, anche al bicchiere.Siamo aperti da marzo a novembre e durante il periodo natalizio. Il giorno di chiusura settimanale è il mercoledì.Questo nostro lavoro è frutto di una scelta fatta con amore e passione che vogliamo condividere con voi.

“Friendly service in a pleasant setting but unexciting food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

The pasta dishes were adequate; but why not serve fresh Parmesan rather than the powdered stuff you get in cheap Italian restaurants in the UK? The main course of chicken in Vernaccia sauce was rather dry and unexciting. I have eaten better in our staff canteen. Service was friendly, if a little erratic. Ambiance most pleasant. But they need a better cook to make the most of this place. Not worth a return visit.

“Return visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

We had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant three years ago when we visited the area. We went back and were once again not disappointed. It is lovely inside and yes there are only two people waiting tables (the owners), but that is Italy...you are not rushed. It was as good as we remembered it. I had teh chicken which was sooo tender and delicious. Hubby had teh wild boar ragu which was also as good as he remembered. Wine was excellent. WOuld definitely recommend eating here!

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2014 via mobile

Great ambiance, good service, food was average. The meals were typical Tuscan cuisine, none were terrible, but none of the plates were terrific either. It's in a good location and easy to find, I think there are better options in the town.

Very nice restaurant. Food is excellent. Service could be better as only two persons attending the restaurant including the outside tables.
