Succulent wild boar prepared exquisitely

If you think Italy is the cornerstone of culinary delights, then Sienna has a special place in my heart/stomach. Off the path of the train bound travelers it is a gem of a city! The wild boar, called chiginla, is lean and flavorful. The pairings that are available at the Taverna are fabulous... read more

Amazing place with great service! This restaurant has a tavern under the rocks which is 2.300 years old, and also they let you walk down it. Amazing! Hundreds of wine to choose.

Located a short walk from the Piazza del Campo, La Taverna di San Giuseppe is in an ancient Etruscan house, dating back to 1100. The food is authentic and all freshly made on premise, from the ravioli, pici, pappardelle to the green gnocchi with fresh mint and tarragon. More options: Truffle gnocchi, wild boar stew, risotto with melon, quail on... More

I was recently fortunate enough to spend a few days in Siena with a good friend who now lives there. On my first evening, she took me to La Taverna di San Giuseppe. What a place! You are warmly welcomed and the staff are amazing - they know the menu inside-out and nothing is too much trouble. The food is... More

American tourists in Siena for the day, our guide took us here. It was friendly, not too crowded (we came early) and the food and wine was spectacular. I highly recommend it.

My husband and I traveled to Italy for about 3 weeks and went to several cities, this however was one of the best meals we had on the entire trip. Truffles were in season when we went, and we both got the most incredible truffle pasta dishes in the world! The food was outstanding, and on top of that they... More

Walked in at 7 when they opened and was lucky enough to get a table without a reservation. A reservation is advisable, the restaurant is not very big and its not exactly a secret they serve some of the best food in Tuscany. The space is cozy and very tastefully decorated. Prices are around 10-20 Euro per plate and wine... More

We had an amazing meal at La Taverna di San Giuseppe... I don't even know where to begin, everything was absolutely delicious! First of all, a bottle of their house Chianti is only 11 euro and it's a great wine. I ordered a couple of entrees off of the special truffle menu (gnocchi and steak), which were both OUTSTANDING, as... More

Went here for dinner. So good we went back for lunch the following day. Food is terrific and unlike many restaurants in Italy I didn't feel that they had one standard of service for locals/Italians and one for foreigners. The service was very friendly and professional. Easily the best dining experience we had in Italy on both occasions. I do... More
