With an intimate setting, spectacular views and outstanding food, we were so happy to dine at al 43! We enjoyed it so much, that we dined here twice.

I ordered the soft poached egg and asparagus, pea puree, and lobster ravioli on night one and on night two, added an asparagus risotto. Everything was to die for! Fabbio, the chef, is wonderful and we were well taken care of!

Don't miss this gem! It will steal your heart and taste buds.

What can be said that hasn't been said already? The ambiance is intimate and welcoming - everything is thought of and personalized. You can sit inside or on the terrace with views of the Tuscan countryside. This place makes you feel good just to be there. The music played is hand picked from Baker and Christian's personal music library (and you can follow the playlist on Spotify!).

The food is out of this world. Chef Fabio's cooking is nothing short of divine. We dined here twice with a large group and tried just about everything on the menu. There is nothing sub par. A personal favorite of our group was the ginger gelato - you have to try it!

This place is also vegetarian friendly - we had a few vegetarians in our group and they ate easily.

We will absolutely be back and do recommend al 43 to anyone in or near San G (or anyone who plans to be in Tuscany, ever!). Thank you Baker, Christian, Fabio and Rose for a fantastic dining experience, every time!

We enjoyed a meal here while guests at Locanda dell Artista, with our grown up kids, their spouses and our friends. We were a big group - 9 of us - and still enjoyed courteous personal service from Baker and Cristian. The food was outstanding - we all ordered a la carte, as we have two vegetarians in our group - and each course was delicious, fresh and not overwhelming in size. The sauce on the pasta was so delicious it demanded we soak it up with the home cooked bread, the dessert was fresh strawberry soup from the garden, along with balsamic ice cream - amazing!

I would highly recommend this gem of a new restaurant outside of San Gimingiano!
