“Beautiful place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

My wife and I enjoyed our dinner at a beautiful terrace with amazing views, enjoying an amazing view of sunset. When we arrived we were sitted at our table by a polite waiter who immediately served some very tasty snack food for starter.
We also greatly enjoyed the wine that was recommended to us by the maitre. This is the first time I tried this wine, and it complimented nicely our steak. To finish the meal, we were recommended to try the cake "millefoille" with mascarpone cream and they also offered us special wine that went in good harmony with the desert "passito di pantelleria".
The prices were acceptable and we have had a beautiful dinner, definitely come back here again next time we are in Italy! Most recommended!

“Memorable food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

While staying at the Castello di Fulignano, ate here 3 of our evenings and tried many dishes on the menu -- especially liked the wild boar. Good wine list, helpful service from Tiziano. Indoor seating is romantic and outdoor has sensational view! Very memorable!

Yes.
The costumers of the castle are very special costumers.
Becouse they can fully know every part of our restaurant.
Becouse they come often, and is more difficult to serve them.
I'm very glad that you loved "la grotta di fulignano"
Me, Tiziano, and the chef Manuel want to say to you...
THANX YOUUUUU!!!
:)

best regards

“Wonderful evening with excellent food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

We arrived with bicycles and asked for a table outside, and they arranged one with a view of the sunset overlooking San Gimignano. Beautiful! Then we were served one of the best Antipasti we have had with a selection of Tuscan ham and salami, bruschetti, etc. We all had beef for the Second Piatti, which was excellent. We will certainly return!
