La Bruschetteria Pane e Pomodoro is not your typical tourist sandwich bar as, for a start, it’s tucked away down a side street away from the main drag of San Gimignano. The lady was friendly and helpful and spoke as little English as we spoke Italian, but we did just fine. The menu is simple and unpretentious and typically Tuscan. There is a large choice of bruschetta to choose from and you really can taste how fresh the ingredients are and the place is very clean and airy and the food is quick and tasty. It’s a great place to get out of the heat, away from the crowds and relax and enjoy San Gimignano.

La brushceterria pane e pomodoro is tucked away in a small street just of the Piazza del Duomo. It offer delicious freshly prepared food with excellent locally sourced ingredients. The menu is typically Tuscan fare and there is a good choice. The welcome is warm and friendly. It is small and unpretentious; the quiet atmosphere is relaxing. Recommended

Place found by accident, but we were attracted by cosyness of the place. Bruschetta is just amazingly good. The lady who is serving is kind, fits with interior. Nice place away from touristic areas, but definitelly worth to go for.

This place does what it is supposed to: making a good bruschetta. You dont have a tourist-trappy feeling at all, the food is made right in front of you, fast and good. It is tucked away in an alley just off the main tourist track.

My husband and I came across this little gem while visiting San Gimignano during our honeymoon last summer (2015). We'd been walking all day and we figured that a snack of bruschetta and some drinks would hold us over until dinner. We were not disappointed! The bruschettas were delicious! Beatrice, the owner, was also so sweet and made our quick snack stop extremely enjoyable. We actually spent some time talking to her and her mom. Now when we think back on our visit through Tuscany, we always think of Beatrice and her bruschettas!
