San Gimignano is not to be missed; it is the epitome of Italian hill top towns retaining much of its medieval character. Expect to be one of many tourists enjoying the shopping arcades, the best tasting gelato and casual meals in the piazzas. Caffe della Erbe meets all the criteria for a casual, busy venue to enjoy fresh local product and people watching with locals and visitors alike. We chose a platter of cold meats and drinks, a simple meal in the sunshine sitting cheek to jowl with the others patrons; perhaps they have tried to cram too many tables in a confined space. Service was better than adequate and fitted in with the casual but enjoyable vibe.

Pizza was from the fridge - it was awful plastic thing. And we payed for this such price like for a real pizza. It was the worst lunch in Italy I have ever had.
Don't go there!

La prossima volta vada in pizzeria non in un caffè perché la nostra pizza è congelata ma non di plastica e soprattutto è scritto .

grazie

Brilliant location on a medieval square so lots to watch and take in whilst enjoying great service and amazing food.

My friend and I had a salad and mixed cold meat plates which were extremely tasty and beautifully prepared.

Would recommend.

Great location, just off the main square but with fabulous views of the towers. Great people watching location if that appeals. Good menu. My husband had a Gorgonzola and fig panini which he loved and I had mixed bruschetta which were really great and Coffee was good. Only one loo so be prepared to queue if the restaurant is busy but clean and perfectly acceptable. Overall happy to recommend.

Quiet location to stop for a drink and light lunch. We only had wine and pizza, but it was just what was needed. Reasonable prices, reasonable quality and courteous service. There was no pressure to buy anything else and we sat and finished the wine at our leisure. Lunchtime recommendation.
