“Change for the Better”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

What a difference 9 months and I think a change of chef/staff /owners can make. The service was excellent even though when we arrived a table of 20 had just ordered (groan) No problem the waiter managed to look after us without any hiccups. The menu was almost the same as Sept 13 but the food which we received was in no way the same. The tagliatta di manzo was the best I have had as was the rabbit in wine sauce my wife had.The pasta and dolci were equally impressive as was the view as you pulled up outside the restaurant. We will be back.

“Good local place”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Had dinner here twice in 5 nights, because we enjoyed the food the first time. Simple, local type menu with some great pasta and beef dishes. I don't remember the name, but there was an absolutely decadent chocolate desert. Our waiter, Gian Luca was very good , remembering our likes and dislikes on our second visit.

“Very useful and convenient place for the quests form nearest farms”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

It seems there is no need to do advertising to this place.
The guests from the farms and hotels near this trattoria will not pass this lovely place and other tourists will not be able to find the way.
The Trattoria Borgo situated on the top of Racciano hill. There is not any signs on the main road to this tratorria. However, there is fresh and testy cuisine and place is crowded by the guests.
Of course you should try the “borgo” meat there. The house wine is good, also.

“Superb food, great staff!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

We came to this restaurant on our last evening of our holidays as it was our favourite restaurant from 3 years ago when we stayed very close by at Il Raccianello. Again, we had a fantastic meal and the quality of the food was superb. The staff were attentive and polite. We started with a mixed platter of typical Tuscan food which we all tucked into, followed by huge pizzas and a lamb dish which my eldest daughter opted for. All consumed voraciously, we ended with a couple of tasty desserts. Although not cheap at all, we really enjoyed the food and the al fresco dining with a view! We will definitely come here again when we visit next but please bring back the chocolate hot pot that you used to have 3 years ago! My kids really missed it this time round!

“Outstanding views, great service, good food”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

We didn't plan on visiting this restaurant, but happened upon it when we skipped San Gimignano's crowds one Sunday. We are so glad we did. The view from the terrace was outstanding, and it was a beautiful day. We have a two-year-old, and so anything servers do to make our life easier is greatly appreciated. They had a high chair and quick service and delivery of food (we were there for lunch, and granted, there weren't many people).

The food was good, definitely not the best meal we had in Tuscany but it was good and we felt like we got our money's worth. I had the papardelle with wild boar sauce - tasty! Hubby had the buffalo mozzarella pizza, which was HUGE and excellent. Starter of tomato bruschetta was not so great, but not bad. The complementary limoncello cream at the end was a nice treat.. We would happily go back for the view!
