The clerk in Beconcini (shop near the cathedral) recommended this restaurant to us. He had just eaten there the night before. He wasn't sure if it was open for lunch, so gave us a second choice. Fortunately for us, it was open. Since it was a warmer, sunny day, we decided to eat out on the patio. I chose to... More

San Gimignano is a charming medieval town in the beautiful Tuscan hills, and La Mandragola was one of the highlights of our foodie adventures across Italy. Tucked away off the Piazza Duomo, it is a hidden treasure of delicious typical cuisine, friendly staff, and pleasant surroundings. Every single item on the menu looked delicious, but I settled on the ravioli... More

Been in San Gimignano two days and looking for a good fiorentina steak, we definitely been satisfied by La Mandragola. We skip the appetisers and ordered directly 1 kg of steak (for 2 person) and some green salad as side dishes: the dish was outstanding. Dessert (chocolate mousse and semifreddo) also high standard, same as the red wine selected from... More

Elegant place with outdoor and indoor seating. Situated in the heart of the town. This restaurant has an extensive menu, with a mix of tradition and modernity. Dishes were very well presented and food was cooked at perfection. Very friendly staff.

This was a tricky restaurant to find. We were there after dark, so didn't benefit from the outdoor area or its elevated location. A light clean-lined interior, and delicious food.

A hidden gem away from the tourist streets, Ristorante La Mandragola is a wonderful restaurant. Our group made a same day reservation for 14 and they handled it perfectly. The food was superb and we walked away feeling like it was the best meal of the 15 day trip. The staff was very friendly and helpful with selections. A must!!

A bit hidden but just some meters from the tourist streams you will find a wonderful restaurant with a very pleasant garden. The food here is just delicious, the choice of wines impressive, the staff extremely friendly. Try their very tasty antipasti! Enjoy this calm corner of San Gimignano!
