9.17.2014 This was about the only place we could catch a bite after 2pm.
(Note:In San Gimignano, restaurants close after 2pm and don't re-open till 7pm.)
Service was rather s-l-o-w though. The solo person manning the place was multi-tasking: he was the greeter, took the order, then hurried to the kitchen, prepped the food, served, was also sommelier and cashier.
The cheese was good, the black-truffle spread delicious but the wine only so-so. The salad was the FLOP. The shrimp definitely tasted like thawed, frozen shrimp -- flat and rubbery. The baby Arugula was bland and whimpy; - no nutty flavor, no peppery-bite, none of the subtle bitter-after-taste like the Arugula from California I'm accustomed to.
Seated inside, we got up to shut the glass doors to escape the smokes from the 2 other diners seated in the patio.
