    Amazing bucolic place, amazing sunset dinner on their porch. Fair prices, and don’t miss the final Vin Santo & Cantucci selection!

    We have had an excellent time at Zafferano. It is a hidden gem. We enjoyed all the courses and the homemade wine. You can taste that everything is fresh and made with love. We ate the vegetarian dishes and nothing was asked to much to make it more custom fit. We take home unforgatable tasty memories and homemade wine what we will enjoy @ Amsterdam. Thank you so much! To keep in mind: the prices are higher than average. It was absolutely worth the experience.

    Amazing food in a beautiful relaxed setting. Great wine selection especially by the glass options. A perfect taste of Tuscany. Well worth the short trip out of town.

    This was the best meal we had in Tuscany! Don’t be deterred by the purple photo - the restaurant is beautiful and the food is refined, sophisticated Tuscan. Yes the onion tart Tatum was sublime! Beautiful food.

    The grounds were beautiful and perfectly tucked away. We had the most amazing meal of meat and cheese, wild boar ravioli and perfectly cooked steak. I would highly recommend!

    We went there for an evening diner. A relaxed and friendly welcome in a nice building with good mood covered terrace. The artichoke and truffle egg as starter was great followed by original red gnochis and lamb with pistachio crumble. Good place for a pleasant diner with cosy mood.

    A little bit of class in the Tuscan Countryside.

    A weird experience: on the one, nice and delicate dishes, well prepared, on the other, we had first a warm welcome but we also had a surprise regarding the bill. There was a big mistake, i.e 26% more on the main dishes...! When underlined, this was corrected with solely a very vague sorrow, without any kind of explanation. In fact, we had a very unpleasant feeling, as we may have been cheated, should not have been vigilant. More than the aforementioned mistake, the way it was sorted out is not tolerable at all. As a result, I am not capable to recommend this restaurant, even if the meal in itself was really satisfactory and I will definitely not come back there since there are several other very good tables in the vicinity of San Gimignano.

    Lovely restaurant part of an agriturismo. The starters and the secondi were really nice, the primi lacked a bit of oomph but the wines and the desserts were really pleasant. To try: the onion tart tatin, the tavolozza, the 62degree egg, the tagliata, the lamb, the tartelletta with tiramisu.

    They offer different options and we tried several. As an appetizer we had cheese plate with the honey that is made here. We had chianti that they make. And we didn't want to leave without trying the steak. It was really good. They also make olive oil which I had to get because we loved it.

    Truly a sensory experience. The food presentation was colorful and artistic and the flavors were unforgettable. The gnocchi, saffron ravioli, and grilled vegetables were out-of-this-world.
