Fabulous, delicious gelato. We also drink espresso. Inside piazza, I think due to tables outside is perfect location to make rest.

We came to this Piazza after our evening meal. We were happy to see it was open. And we were happy that the line wasn't long. 3 people ahead of us, but while we were deciding, 6 people came. We got to try some samples since there are so many flavors. I got the choc. hazelnut and pistachio, my daughter... More

This little bar/restaurant is a great place for people watching on the main square in San Gimignano. Cocktails are a little bit expensive but delicious and you pay for the location! Didn't try the food but it looked good, so did the ice creams.

Nice terrace to sit. Good wine, and good cocktails. We had a very good salad. The pizza was not very good.

Located on the right as you enter the Piazza from the main walkway, this restaurant has excellent service, good food, and the most amazing desserts you can imagine, if the photos on the dessert menu are to be believed. There are plenty of items on the general menu and servings are reasonably large. There is a good wine list and... More

If you want a coffee and a place to sit and relax, this place fits the bill. We had a great espresso and cafe con panna, and enjoyed the people watching as we recharged.

We ended up at this place for lunch because the city was so crowded, it was about the only place we saw that had an open table. We both got a pizza and they were just ok. The place is clean and the service was good. It was definitely not the best food I have ever eaten, but depending on... More

So I went here bought the gelato then realized the prize winning gelatin was right behind me. I ate some of the gelatin then side by side at some of the other.... turn around and go to the other gelatin shop. Compared to most other shops this place deserves a 5 rating but considering the company.

We used dell Olmo for snacks and ice creams on several occasions and it is an ideal location for relaxing and people watching. Carafe wines were good and reasonably priced and came with nibbles. Service was always friendly and chatty. I can see how it would look like a tourist trap, but don't let that put you off. We never... More

This café is on the side of the main square in San Gimiginano and is a good place to relax and have a drink while admiring the sights and passers-by. We stopped by in the middle of a short but vigorous shower for tea and coffee and it was therefore a welcome shelter. Il Pozzo is a typical tourist bar... More
