We visited here in a group of 13 during the truffle festival. The food is fabulous. Light, beautifully presented, tasty and fresh. And the wine was good too! The amuse bouche of Parmesan crisp and a leek soufflé was wonderful. My cured beef, Parmesan and truffle starter was sublime. Then the ombrina, a bream type fish, was beautifully cooked. The...

Such a pity we only discovered Pepenero on our last evening. I will definitely come back for all the truffle's specialty.

What an experience for start to finish. Champagne and canapes on the terrace with a view to die for. Fruit trees growing in the garden. Then a most superb meal, nothing to dislike. With gluten intolerant and a veggie amongst the party nothing was too much trouble. Definitely a day and meal to remember

All of our dishes were delicious -inventive but still appealing to those in our party who preferred more traditional flavours. The truffle ravioli and the grilled octopus were particular stand-outs, as was the cheesecake! Obviously beloved among locals for special occasions ...worth the slightly higher prices.

Went with a group of friends to this beautiful restaurant had a wonderful evening. Did struggle to find something I liked on the menu - veal, rabbit, prawn tartare, beef carpaccio but that was just me. It was all beautifully cooked and presented and the staff were excellent.

Visit the restaurant after doing truffle hunting. The chef is a friend of the truffle hunter. We had a great dinner, exquisite food highlighting white truffles and the service was superb! Best Restaurant in San Miniato

Nov.20 birthday present . Lovely SanMiniato has some great restaurants with interesting Decor and decoration. Pepenero is underground and very modern with Art and Rustic Touches. Bright new kitchen and a good atmosphere. Friendly and mostly efficient staff. First impressions were good. We ordered from the White Truffle menu, reading that the hand written prices varied depending on the market... More
