We were recommended this restaurant by our Italian friend, and we were lucky to reserve a table on a Saturday night! This is an authentic Tuscan dining experience with Michelin high quality food, unbeatable prices and fabulous service. The waiters were incredibly helpful, and we sampled a variety of Tuscan dishes. The restaurant manager was also very interactive and attentive,... More

We had a great lunch with our family. They actually prepared off the menu for our daughter (5) who can be fussy. Our 12 and 14 year old boys ate from the menu. Everyone enjoyed their meals. A very special place

Although off the beaten path a bit in the old city, this was a fantastic meal and one that I will remember for a long time. Highlights included gnocchi with pecorino and truffle shavings; braised beef in red sauce; and what one waiter described as "best tiramisu in the universe." I would make a special trip to Siena just to... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and I am not sure we would have found it since it's buried in Siena but we are so happy we got to experience this restaurant. Waiters were great and made recommendations that were spot on - the wild boar pici was outstanding (and I don't usually eat pork!). The ambience was perfect... More

My fiancée and I went there on our trip and it lived up to its reviews. The service was impeccable from the moment we step foot in the door. We ordered 2 appetizers, the phyllo and vegetables and the smoked mozzarella and bead on a skewer - both were delicious. We had the grilled meats plate and the beef tagliata... More

We went here because of all the great reviews. It was nice. Food was good- The chef is known for his creme de brûlée- it was amazing. Atmosphere was romantic and nice. They give you a chair for your purse.

Really, what can one say after so many have given so much praise other than to testify that they are right! We went back the next night, that's how much we enjoyed it. Atmospheric setting, excellent service, and oh, the food! As with any place this popular, don't neglect making reservations!
