Tired of the 'pizza by the slice' or the same 'dry panino' choices when not up to a full restaurant commitment. This addition to eateries of San Gimignano is certainly welcomed. Right in the center of town but a bit off the crowds. It is right off the piazza dell Duomo as you start your walk down via San Matteo. A small vicolo on the right takes you to La bruschetteria pane e pomodoro.It is a small but cozy space.All orders are made right there in front of you and
made with fresh seasonal ingredients when you put in your order. The first time we ate here none of us could make up our minds or decide. The proprietor suggested making up a platter of mixed choices and suggested a wine for us. Good gosh! The flavors certainly belied the freshness and quality of ingredients they use. Every bite was delicious. How nice to have a choice of a quick snack with flavor or a great lunch with out all the bother of crowds and time investment. Another time was the owners coming to the rescue for us. It was a birthday for one of us. The weather being beautiful and our accommodations having a wonderful terrace we wanted a celebration outdoors in the sun and sights of Tuscany. The folks at Pane e Pomodoro made up the most beautiful and delicious platters for our celebration. Along with the wine and prosecco that they supplied, the party was a tremendous success. These folks and their food are wonderful. I find myself in San Gimi frequently and I am so happy to find an eatery like this.
Do yourself a favor if you go to San Gimignano. Find this place and taste real Tuscan treats.

We spotted this tiny shop whilst wandering San Gimignano , & took our friends back for lunch. The variety of bruschetta toppings are many & varied. My husband had basic tomato bruschetta, with the sweetest tomatoes, it was lovely. I had the pear, pecorino & honey..it was delicious, in fact so delicious my husband had one as well, after his tomato one. The store owner was lovely, working very hard on his own, but with a smile all the time. This is a lovely, cheap, cute experience, slightly off the tourist track. Worth finding..

As we only wanted a snack this was perfect for us. Everything was freshly prepared in the tiny area behind the counter and was simple yet delicious! We had a bottle of Chianti from the Radda area recommended by the waiter which went perfectly with the mixed plates of bruchetta. Good value and it was nice to find somewhere that didn't feel too touristy.

Everything tastes fresh and delicious. The olive oil they use is amazing. Prices are very low for San Gimignano and the value is just great.
