Great Florentine steak. Side dishes - roasted potatoes & sautéed spinach very good. Radicchio in mixed salad was bitter. Olive bread very nice. Friendly staff. Superb Chianti Classico.

This place was recommended by our hotelier. Suffice to say, it didn't disappoint. We arrived right at opening time, 19:30, but the place quickly filled up. Several authentic/regional dishes. The wild boar in wine was simply perfect. Try this place if visiting San Gimignano.

A wonderful restaurant delivering delicious Tuscan delights. Fresh home made pasta backed up by a varied and versatile choice of mains. I went for the braised venison which was wonderfully tender. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Well worth a visit

The Renaissance banquets at the Medici court with game and vegetables of the lands of Tuscany come back to life in The Manger restaurant menu in the center of San Gimignano. In Via Mainardi in the stables of an ancient building, Susi and Paul Nannelli have recreated the atmosphere of other times, offering a cuisine that is inspired precisely by the ancient recipes reworked in a modern way: fillet of venison with vin santo and mushrooms, Wild Boar Remigio de 'Nannini and wild boar in sweet and sour sauce are just some of the unusual dishes to try for sure. The restaurant is run by Mrs. Susi who chooses only local products for the preparation of the dishes presented to guests with care even in appearance. Do not miss the Tuscan specialties such as Ribollita or pappardelle with wild boar, much loved by foreign tourists who visit the locale.Il restaurant is located in the historical center a few steps from Piazza Sant'Agostino in a living room with stone walls and brick arches ancients. The atmosphere is rustic and elegant and is eaten with a background in classical music. In summer there stands outdoors to enjoy in addition to the kitchen even the atmosphere of the medieval village. The management is friendly: the spouses Nannelli together with their daughters Annalisa and Giulia will welcome you with kindness and cordiality.
