I learned that fattoria means farm in Italian. This one is a cluster of stone buildings that houses tourist accommodations as well as producing wine, olive oil and feeding hungry tourists. We stopped here with a tour group. Very nice lunch, lovely setting.

The beauty of Tuscany is unparalleled as is the hospitality and food of the Fattoria San Donato. Located in the beautiful countryside, yet very convenient for day trips throughout Tuscany. We were with a group and enjoyed an evening meal and tour of the wine making facilities. The amazing variety of freshly grown items was too much to comprehend. All sorts of vegetables, breads, pastas, honey, wines etc. If there was ever a feast fit for a King this was it. There are available rooms for rent, as well as dining facilities. Don't miss this one!

Wow! Wow! Wow! We booked for dinner here on two occasions and were very pleasantly surprised. The cuisine on offer is very authentic and the vast variety astonished us. Seating is communal and this allows you to interact and mingle with various tourists and visitors from around the world. A truly amazing experience! Hospitality at it's very best!

Umberto and Federica did a marvelous job of putting out an inexhaustible spread of meats and cheeses, olives, tomatoes, an eggplant dish, pastas, bruschetta and more, plus white and red wines. We were hosted in one of the main buildings, on the second floor. During our long lunch, Umberto encouraged the 4 kids in our group to go tour the farm, feed the goats, and have a great time. There was no rush to our dining, and the leftovers were packed for us to take with us. I simply cannot say enough about the experience. Call or email Federica to ensure there is space. Years ago when we would eat lunch with the Fenzis, we wouldn't see another group; now, as they have improved and expanded their facility, there are others who have heard about the hospitality.

Travelers to Italy are accustomed to the unparalleled beauty of Tuscany. We were lucky to visit this working winery/restaurant/B & B outside San Gimignano for lunch. All of the folks on our tour bought wine to be shipped home and the owner spent a lot of time with us just chatting about all things wine and food. The buffet lunch was classic Italian fare but made special because of the farm grown honey, parmesan cheese and vegetables. The farm also produces its own olive oil. It truly was paradise...
