Visited for lunch and sat outside. There is a beautiful view over the Tuscan hills and the towers of San Gimiglano in the distance. Food was average: Not bad in anyway and freshly prepared, just not that exciting and lacking a bit of finesse and flavor. We had the wild boar tagliatelle (3/5) and a traditional Tuscan soup (3/5) for... More

Tks for choosing us. I respect your opinion but we had a small technical problem and then I don't think wait 20 minutes admiring how she just says the wonderful terrace is a disservice.We do not replace the table so a few minutes for some dishes we may stay.Thanks again . Greetings More

We had a lovely evening here recently, the food was fabulous and so was the service! The views of San Gimignano are breathtaking from the restaurants terrace, we highly recommend it here.

Recommended by our hotel, but didn't have reservations. They accommodated us and we were thrilled with fantastic food and service. We returned 2 days later at 6:300PM for their terrace opening and had an incredible view along with the perfect food. We would recommend it highly!

We ate here twice while staying at Fulignano. It's pricey but the service is excellent. Start with the traditional platter - wow it's wonderful. The Pasta is fresh. The sauces delicious. Sliced beef tasty. Go for the Tuscan Vennachia wine - perfect in this climate.

We had dinner at the Grotta di Fulignano on the first night of our stay in Tuscany . The setting of the restaurant is wonderful, and the view of Tuscan rolling hills stunning, especially at sunset...Service is attentive but topping up of wine was erratic. We had a larger platter of Tuscan specialties (ham, cured salami, pecorino, another goat cheese,... More

The food wasn't that great; steak wasnt tender and the wild boar stew was dry. However, the view is absolutely stunning with the sun setting next to San Gimignano and the staff is kind, respectful, professional and hospitable. Prices are alright, we had 3 courses and no wine for €40 per person. All in all a great and unique experience,... More

We decided to have dinner in this place based on its great location and good reviews. While the location is truly gorgeous the food is absolutely below average. The staff was very nice and suggested to have boar and we did so, together with the 'antipasti' and ravioli. The ravioli were badly presented and one of those was already broken... More

We came based on other reviews. You can get here two ways - from San G on a short track or a longer way from Poggibonsi - expect a few bumps on the way BUT it's more than worth it. The restaurant is part of a small hotel which itself looks high end with an infinity pool. Expect one of... More
