The best truffle's plates is San Gimignano.The waitress Giulia was very gentile. The Tartarufo(carne cruda Al tartufo) and Taglierini ao tartufo fresco was delicious.

We were walking down one of the ancient street and tucked into what appeared to a small streetside restaurant for lunch. When we were ushered into the back room we're quite surprised to see the beautiful view that awaited us (even on an overcast day). We were seated right beside the large picture window. I had a pasta dish and... More

We had lunch in La Griglia visiting San Gimignano. La Griglia is a beautiful restaurant, in the centre of the small village, that offers all kind of food: meats, pasta, pizzas... while enjoying stunning Tuscany views. Although it is not a very expensive restaurant, the food doesn't have a very high quality (specially pizzas). Pasta is not but though.

This is first restaurant we had dinner at upon our arrival in San Gimignano. WE were wandering up and down the main street of the old town looking for a place to eat and would have walked right by if we didn't stop to peek inside the doorway when a staff person said that the restaurant was actually in the...

City recommended by friends, restaurant picked by menu and nice panoramic view. First person at doors - smiling welcome, further not so smiley just serious, waitress not happy at all. Based on availability were seated at balcony, with nice view. Was not crowded, menu looked good. Water and vine gases, heavy use of washing machine (scratches and sludge). We were... More

Nice spot to duck away from the crowds of day trippers. Pizzas are especially good - crust is really great - I had the Gorgonzola w walnuts and my husband the veggie. View was great. A bit overpriced but worth it all things considered.

We had a delightful lunch here -- wild boar pate, a cheese plate, some salads. You can watch the chef roasting meat through the inside windows. There are lovely views, also.

We ate here less than an hour ago. I was reading the reviews and was amazed that we had such different experiences. Our meal was excellent, but we didn't have pizza or pasta; we went to the "Grill Restaurant" and ordered grilled food. I had lamb chops, four beautifully cooked lamb chops, with a nice mixed green salad. My friend... More

In this lovely town it's a shame to visit such a bad restaurant. Not good and overpriced food. They offer you truffles in the entrance and then you don't get any ... Please don't let them fool you and go somewhere else !
