Great dinner, great location. Quaint location on the castle wall, a bit challenging to find, but that's part of the fun. Good luck with parking - go to a paid lot. Had ribbon pasta with saffron and Tuscan sausage, my husband had tortellini with truffles. Both were great. Service has something to be desired, but worth going to. Fun to walk around the castle area at night. Make a reservation, by 8 PM, this place was hopping and full.

Had dinner here last night. Greeted with a smile always a good sign
We sat outside a nice gravel set up. Great menu choices and great wine list. We ordered our food and just sat back and enjoyed the atmosphere
The food was great, my wife had the lamb, I had the pork, both prepared beautifully and both tasted delicious
All of the food is prepared fresh, they leave a nice amount of time between courses so you can enjoy your evening. Lovely dolce menu yum..Situated inside the walls of San Gimignano, you definately need to book here, they were turning people away with apologises. They also do accommodation, we were staying elsewhere.

After reading the excellent reviews we decided to try our luck at this restaurant,sadly on Saturday evening it was fully booked up.and we were forced to go elsewhere.However we returned later and booked a table for the day after as it was my birthday.We arrived at 1pm an hour earlier than the time we had booked due to a sudden downpour.We were immediately made to feel welcome in this most charming ,quietly elegant restaurant.What can I say everything was impeccable ,the service ,the presentation of the dishes and food to die for!The cheese cake will live in my memory for a long time.If you get the chance go and have a delicous meal.Many thanks to Nicola and the staff for making it a wonderful ,unforgetable birthday .

We received from a local girl the recommendation to visit this restaurant. We arrived quite late on Sunday night (9.20 pm) but we were warmly welcomed.
The foods are not the standard you can get everywhere and the wine-list is great. The staff is very professional. We had a great dinner here.

We visited Ristorante la Mandragola twice for lunch--the first visit in early March before the crush of tourists for a leisurely terrace lunch and the second on Easter Monday with our adult children when thousands were visiting the town. The restaurant is a little away from the tourist main area--worth the stroll. On both occasions we were treated to impeccable service and delightful cuisine in a charming setting. Both dining experiences rank among the most memorable for me in a three month visit to Italy. The wine selection is extensive with delicious local choices aplenty. The primis are as wonderful as the secondis and the desserts are as beautiful as they are delicious. Be sure to walk up the tower and then down to the art museum to enjoy guilt free! Highly recommend.
