We visited Caffe Giardino to buy water as it was a hot day. The owner, behind the till, was rude and very unfriendly. The toilet was dirty, no toilet seat and I would suggest that you use another establishment.

A lovely little ristorante just outside the walls of San Gimignano. Their single window looks out onto a Tuscan landscape that says "this is why I came to Italy." Had a great bruschetta and a glass of house wine. Lovely.
