This was a tricky restaurant to find. We were there after dark, so didn't benefit from the outdoor area or its elevated location. A light clean-lined interior, and delicious food.

A hidden gem away from the tourist streets, Ristorante La Mandragola is a wonderful restaurant. Our group made a same day reservation for 14 and they handled it perfectly. The food was superb and we walked away feeling like it was the best meal of the 15 day trip. The staff was very friendly and helpful with selections. A must!!

A bit hidden but just some meters from the tourist streams you will find a wonderful restaurant with a very pleasant garden. The food here is just delicious, the choice of wines impressive, the staff extremely friendly. Try their very tasty antipasti! Enjoy this calm corner of San Gimignano!

We went here having found the restaurant recommended on TripAdvisor and were delighted with our experience. Despite the chilly September evenings we were able to sit outside on the lovely terrace courtesy of the patio heaters, enjoying the ambience of this pretty walled town. The menu had a good selection and the spicy slow-cooked beef was particularly delicious. What set... More

I came to this restaurant on a recommendation of Italian business partners. Smoked Tuscan Wild Boar with a bottle of Super Tuscany 1999 was a delight . Attentive service. Met a lovely Russian lady who was also dining alone and had a brief but enjoyable chat. Kicking myself for not asking for her number . Highly recommend this place if... More

Every year I visit Tuscany. Every year I visit San Gimignano. Every year I eat at Locanda La Mandrigola. It is the best place to eat in the town. I don't eat anywhere else! This year the pasta with cheese and spinach was sublime.

This is a nice restaurant, with both inside and outside dining. The menu is comprehensive enough with a good selection of wines. The food is always prepared fresh and tastes nice. The only criticism is the order taking and getting your bill. We ate there twice this year and it seems that only one of the waiters takes the orders... More

This was our favourite place to eat in San Gimignano. We had two dinners and one lunch here and it was fabulous. The melon and prosciutto were to die for. We stayed in their B& B which was nice. If I go back to San Gimignano I will definitely eat all my meals here.

Thank Winnie999
