The sign outside said no pizza - an understandable warning in tourist infested San Gimignano in high summer, and a good indication. We found this a useful place to escape to for lunch after a visit to the nearby cathedral with its magnificent frescos. We...More

Service is really awful, "waiters" (they don't deserve to call them like that) rude and incompetent. Irritated that they have a clients. I have never seen something like that in other restaurants in Italy. Worst place to go. Not recomended :(

Waiters were extremely rude and when i told them this is not the way to treat a customer the waiter shushed me. Absolutely outrageous.

The Pasta dishes were bland and lacking in flavour. We were very disappointed with them. The meat dishes were apparently a lot better but I can't vouch for that. I left feeling unfulfilled unfortunately.

We sat down for quick and light dinner and drinks. Ordered their pastas (my partner had vegetarian macaroni and i had meat and mushroom taglatiele). I guess first warning was it is done in 3 minutes - it was terrible meal. Did not enjoy one...More
