Best food in Sienna

We had the best meal of our Italian trip in this restaurant. The food and service were excellent. We had to wait a bit for the meal as the restaurant was very busy and were had not booked, but it was well worth the wait. It was also one of the cheaper meals, what more can you ask for?

If you love great Italian food this place is for you. Fabulous food, wine, and service. If you are in Siena you must eat at La Taverna di San Giuseppe. Not only do you get to experience fine dining, you get to visit history. The wine cellar is located in the middle of the restaurant and it dates back 300... More

So many beautiful and quaint restaurants in Siena but this one is the best! It was recommended to us by an employee at our hotel, a place he takes his family to. Reasonable pricing, excellent service, and impeccable food. So many wonderful options to choose from and great ambiance. We stayed in Siena and Rome and this was my favorite... More

The title says it: get the Bistecca alla Fiorentina. You won't be disappointed. We had several excellent meals in Siena and Florence this spring, but San Giuseppe stood out among the crowd. Excellent service, terrific wine recommendations, mind-blowing olive oil, and borderline life-changing steak. Do it.

We booked a lunch at this restaurant, situated in a street a little bit away from the crowds in Sienna, and really foind what we were looking for! The ambience of the restaurant is great, with stone walls and a cellar they say dates back to old roman times. Excellent service, the waiters speak

As we did ‘walk in’ without a booking, the staff we so warm and kind to seat us anyway with a time limit which was understandable. As for the 2 hours we were there, unbelievable! The atmosphere of the place, relaxing and care free. The staff and service, professional and nice. The food, OMG!!! Let’s just say, we will definitely... More

Had a lovely dinner experience at San Giuseppe. It is a quaint restaurant with excellent food. It was a short walk from our hotel. We were pleasently surprised by this unusual restaurant layout. The menu is excellent with a fine wine list. The food was excellent with great service. Try the steak, but share if you are not much of... More

This place doesn't need any more 5 star reviews, but I'll give it one anyway! We had an amazing night here. I almost died of happiness when I took my first bite of truffle gnocchi. So amazing. My husband's chocolate boar (not actually chocolate just brown) pasta was incredible. I'm not a dessert person, but I snarfed the whole sampler... More
