Quirky little Italian restaurant with the lasagne to die for. Staff don't speak much English but this adds to the character

As a tip from the hotel but also from the Tripadvisor tips, we visited Chiribiri for dinner.
We were quite early there, so we could seat right away out on the terras.

The waiter, which I think was the owner too, a funny man but also somewhat awkward in his own way, made him interesting to watch, took our orders. He also kindly explained the special of the day and there was also a separate menu, also the day specials, with even more delicious choices of plates.

Tip! Go on time if you want to sit outside, otherwise you will be advised to go round the corner and sit in a very small cozy space inside, which also has its charms.
There is of course also the possibility to wait or reserve for later in the evening.

From the mixed starters, a bit of everything, to the mixed meat and the pasta we ENJOYED every bite!! When he asked if we wanted 'Dolce' we couldn't help to try the Tiramisu and the days specials Caramelised fig with panna cotta, the winner was for real the Tiramisu! We even went back a day later to enjoy again the Tiramisu after a disappointing dinner elsewhere!

If ever in San Gimignano this is a must to enjoy!

Sweet small place with charming staff and delicious food - we shared two primi and two secondi between three of us and there was plenty of food - would particularly recommend the wild boar stew and the crespoline, both cooked with love and flair. Bill was 71 euro including wine and coffee - very good value for somewhere as popular as San Gimignano. I would advise booking to be sure of a warm welcome.

Quite simple restaurant with good food! The waiter was not that friendly, prices were very reasonable and the food was good! We were sitting outside, it is in a small street without cars. great place for a quick lunch or dinner.

We stumbled across this little trattoria more or less by mistake for lunch - and we had a ball. Atmosphere, service and most importantly food and wine are great. We were particularly keen on the fresh porcini which came in all sorts of variations raw to cooked... We decided to go back for a late dinner again on the same day...
If you are in San Gim and you are after reasonably prices local cuisine - highly recommended.
