“Fabulous find!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

This restaurant of a small, but wonderful "agriturismo" in the Tuscany region was a magnificent treat. We did not stay at the bed and breakfast of this agriturismo, but rather we were staying just up the dirt road/path at the Hotel Pescille. As our hotel did not serve dinner during the season that we stayed there (April), they recommended their neighbor down the road. The Zafferano is a five minute walk down the road, but it would be worth an hour hike to get there. The very small, intimate, and elegant restaurant offered us wonderful gourmet options to choose from and we were always delighted with our selections. We ate there two out of our four nights in San Gimignano, but would have easily been happy eating there all four nights! The daughter of the family-run business was our waitress each night, and she could not have been more delightful and service-oriented. We highly recommend eating here, and we may try to stay there overnight if we are ever fortunate enough to re-visit the area.

“Excellent restaurant.”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Out of the way, but ideal if you're staying at the hotel.
Very good menu, fresh produce, tasty food well presented.

“Excellent Tuscan Meals!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

My wife and I, and another couple we were travelling with, ate dinner here twice during our stay on the property. We also ate the four course lunch that we cooked after taking the excellent cooking course with Chef Saverio. Our meals were excellent across the board. The rabbit and the duck were among our favorite main courses, and every pasta we tried was delicious. The service was friendly and attentive. Every member of the staff was related to the family that owns and runs the property in some way. During dinner, it seemed that most of the guests were staying on the property, but we would recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in the area who might prefer a quiet dinner with a beautiful view to a meal in the more crowded and touristy downtown San Gimignano.
