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.
