Nice looking place. We sat inside cause the terras was full. Avarage friendly service. Food was dissapointment. I ate the most tasteless bruscetta ever in Italy. Mixed antipasty were so so. Gnocci where pretty dull. Not a recomnendation if you ask me. Skip this place.

Visited with friends on the first night of our stay in San Gimignano and we were certainly not disappointed. All our food was of excellent standard and the red wine was delicious - highly recommend it.

We have eaten here twice. The florentine steak was fabulous ! The ambiance is romantic. To get a quiet table make reservations and ask to be by the windows .
