We were in San Gimignano on a late evening in March when all other restaurants were closed. Most of the food trucks were leaving the piazza in the town center at 8pm. This little gem was open, warm and only one other couple was dining....More

Great place, let the people there decide for your wine of the region. Typical tuscany food in a great way and good quantity. Price is right and they serve you as you were at home. A little bit hidden but nothing you can not find.

Great enoteca on a quiet street. Wine choices are good and the salads and bruschette are fantastic. The owner is helpful with choices on what wines to try. Also, good art on the walls by local artist for sale. Highly recommend this quiet spot!

I don't really understand sometimes why TA fails completely- we found the place basing on TA reviews. It was so disappointing: only cold apetizers, lasagne was the worst I have ever seen - meat sous only on top and only bechamel between the pasta, bruschettas...More
