This is a fabulous restaurant. My sister recommended it to me and I just love it. You don't need to book but it is very busy. Food is amazing with real attention to detail. Staff are lovely also.

The place is cute, and the tables outside allows getting the view of San Gimignano. The wine list is good and the risotto was perfect. A perfect place to have lunch.

Great experience in a deserted San Gimignano. The chef is young and very talented all the dishes were great. This was our second time at Osteria San Giovanni and we were delighted to eat there.
