An excellent small restaurant just off Piazza della Cisterna. Tables inside & out. Decent choice on menu including a vegetarian option. We ate here on two of our three nights so between 3 of us we tried 6 main meals, all of which were delicious and nicely presented. Good choice of desserts. Very well priced along with good local wine.... More

Came here for my birthday meal. I had decided I wanted to have the fiorentina steak. So picked the restaurant for this. We started with a pasta dish then the steak. The steak was awesome. Service was excellent. Definitely worth a visit for a little fine dining

It is a very cosy and small but rather pleasant restaurant. Everything was delicious and the service was lovely.

The place is cute, and the tables outside allows getting the view of San Gimignano. The wine list is good and the risotto was perfect. A perfect place to have lunch.

Great experience in a deserted San Gimignano. The chef is young and very talented all the dishes were great. This was our second time at Osteria San Giovanni and we were delighted to eat there.

Great place, excellent service. We recommend the ribolleta and the leek and potato soup. Not cheap but worth it!

Once with papperdella, a wide pasta,... More

We enjoyed our dinner here in a full restaurant. Excellent pasta dishes and lovely tiramisu. A definite recommendation amongst the many options here.

Revamped restaurant for this year. Freshly painted to feel lighter and more modern. Used to be very dark and old fashioned inside. Food very good and friendly helpful waitress. Good value for money. Will probably visit again.
