The restaurant where we had wanted to have lunch at this picturesque mountain town was regrettably not open for lunch. So forlornly we wandered down the main street looking for a non-touristy place where one could have a latish lunch (not a porchetta sandwich please!). We lucked out: the Locanda San Domenico, carved out of a disused convent that still... More

My wife and I had lunch at the Locanda San Domenico during a day in San Gimignano. Unfortunately, the terrace was closed so we ate in the covered yard, next to an old well. I was told that the building dates back from the year 1100. In line with the local fare we both had chicken alla vernaccia with roast... More

Late September dinner in this quiet restaurant was extremely enjoyable. The two lads who run the floor were, despite other reviews, very attentive and helpful. The food was plentiful (too much, if honest), traditional and well cooked (the chicken was moist and tender). I should also commend the vegetable soup, a meal in itself. The internal vista photo doesn’t do... More

Myself, family and friends had visited San Gimignano two years previously and loves the place we decided to come back. Previously we had eaten in the large square and enjoyed a lovely meal but on this day we couldn't find a table for 8, it was so busy. So we went down a side street and stumbled upon the San... More

Great place and atmosphere to have lunch, whether you are outside overlooking the hills or inside near the well. The food is nice I had the chicken in White Wine. It was OK I have had better but I was there for the atmosphere. My friends all had different meals, they were OK but nothing outstanding.

We were two couples visiting SG around sunset, during heavy rain, in late August, 2016. We were looking for a restaurant for dinner and we stopped by here. We had to wait for around 10 mins until a table freed up. The reception and service was OK - the main waitress spoke only very limited English, but another waiter spoke... More

Very pleasant atmosphere! Although in Italy is hard to eat bad this one was excellent eat! We had some seriously good local food and very good house wine. Price matched the quality! Staff was good and came out with few good recommendations. Worth a try!

We were attracted by the terrace view, which is gorgeous. When the food arrived we realized we just fall in a touristic trap... Had the impression they opened a can sauce and mixed in our spaghetti... Service slow and neutral.

Ate here one evening - the views from the terrace are stunning. Only a few yards from the central square, but slightly off the main tourist route. San Gimignano is a beautiful town. It is touristy and does get very busy - parking can be difficult from late morning until about 8.00 pm, but it is worth the effort. Definitely... More
