This is a good restuarant but we prefer others in San Gimignano. We had dinner in the outdoor terrase. It is nice. We had bruschette, antipasto tarditionale, filetto cervo and ossobuco. Good but some room for improvement. List of Tuscany wines available.

We had dinner at this nice restaurant inside the walled town of San Gimignano; great food from local cuisine; it's really difficult to order something that isn't tasty! Go for the meat and you won't mistake it!

The Tuscan food tends to be from the land and quite rich. Casseroles and slow cooked food. The venison was excellent, succulent and very tender. You will have a good meal here.

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.
