Tiny place with huge personality thanks to the amiable Don Mariani who serves up these unforgettable meat and cheese platters. The real tower of San Gimignano.

We went to I Mariani today to enjoy the amazing tagliere with all different kinds of meat and cheese. The truffle honey is delicious! But the owner... he is what makes this place so unique. Grazie mille e alla prossima!

Read so many great reviews about this place and had to check it out for ourselves to see what it was all about.

My husband, daughter and mum went at 6pm last night and were greeted by a charming, funny man. He encouraged us to try the wines before we decided on a bottle of Vernacchia (typical of San Gimignano). We sat and enjoyed our wine whilst watching a master at work preparing the most amazing salume and formaggio platter! His attention to detail was a pleasure to watch. The finished output did not disappoint and tasted amazing!! Great selection of meats, delicious pecorino (with the most amazing truffle honey) and selection of breads.

Gianfranco was the perfect host... he gave us some tips of places to visit in the area and when me had finished our meal, directed us to the most amazing ice cream parlour just around the corner.

It's true what the other reviews have said... he speaks very little English and we speak no Italian, but managed to communicate very well. His visual demonstration for making us understand the word "goat" will stay with us forever!

It only had 6 bar stools but a couple with a young child came in after us, and he managed to produce another stool from somewhere!

Would definitely recommend this quirky little place if you are visiting San Gimignano.

Thanks Gianfranco for an unforgettable evening!

My wife, teenage daughter and I spend a fabulous hour one lunch time at this tiny 'bar'. There are only 6 seats available (maybe 8 at a push) so space is at a premium. Luckily we went early (before the locals tend to dine) and were treated to a lunch of impeccable quality served by the owner who clearly adores what he does. The highlight for us was the pairing of the local wine with the Pecorino and truffle infused honey. Buenissimo.
