Our meals here truly felt like coming home. Filippo welcomed us warmly and the deliciousness began. During our Tuscan holiday, we dined here several times, sampling the pizza, wild boar stew, pici, pappardelle, and oh my---the cheese starter with caramelized onion marmellata--divine! We celebrated two birthdays with Filippo's fabulous mascarpone cream crowned cake And of course the wine--- a locally... More

We had three course set dinner for euro 22- we expected that by going with what they were promoting, the food would be good . In essence the food was way overpriced - very basic and designed to come in at the lowest cost. Rather opt for the restaurant in the little town 3 km s away - way better... More

We had dinner there since we wanted something else than returning to San Gimignano for dinner again (our B&B was close to San Gimignano). This place was recommended and rightfully so. Nice food and nice service. The locals also eat there, which is always a good sign.

We ate here on the first night of our holiday and the last. The food on the first night was good but it was only pizza so it would be poor show indeed if they couldn't get that right. The service was ok but attentiveness from the staff could have been better but we felt we wanted to try it... More

Dear customer, As we explained you, it was a very busy day, the young waitress was a little bit confused and didn't serve you very well.. We apologized offering you a pizza take away (that you ordered even though you don't like our food). We're sorry because we work to give a good service and we failed it. We invite... More

All the dishes we had were delicious. Pork stew was particularly good. Friendly staff. We stayed at the apartments run by the same family. Highly recommended

We drove here from St Gimingano which took about 25 minutes. You'll need to read their directions on their website though in effect it's a straight (well only one road) road and then you turn left into their Agriturismo. The restaurant is a large clear-sided barn-like structure on the side of the main building; the surrounding countryside was nice and... More

We stayed at a hotel close to San Gimignano, that did not have a restaurant. Often we drove to San Gimignano to eat dinner. One day we drove towards Castel San Gimignano and came to La Locanda del Borgo, located in the countryside. We ate Gnoggi and while I got roasted pork, my wife got fried chicken in lemon. For...

If you're looking for delicious wild and Tuscany specialty beans, this is the place for you. It's very unpretentious but excellent. If you're in that part of Tuscany it's a must.

When we heard the proprietor of our apartment in Castel San Gimignano was also a chef, we decided to take the short walk to her restaurant to enjoy some authentic local fare. After a short walk along a deserted road through olive groves and vineyards, we arrived at this charming restaurant. Although it turned out to be Giovanna's day off,... More

Our group of four made reservations for a Sunday evening. We walked in and they immediately knew who we were based on our arrival time and Seated us. However, it was at least 20 minutes (and multiple inquiries) before we were offered a menu, and several more minutes before we were offered a beverage. Two of us had pizza and... More
