Siena is one of our favorite towns in Italy. This was our second stay and we have tried several restaurants. We found the best this trip. La Taverna di San Giuseppe was outstanding. My wife had a dish buried in truffles that she really enjoyed. I had a chocolate pasta that was to die for. The service could not have... More

Loved, loved, loved this restaurant. I believe it is Michelin reviewed. My husband and I got a little lost on the streets of Siena and bumped into this restaurant.....so glad we did! We walked in about 10 minutes before they opened while the staff was still eating their lunch. The staff lunch looked and smelled delicious! They happily seated us... More

Had dinner there with a group of workmates while on a trip to Sienna. Multi course meal. One of the best in my life. The food, and especially the pasta, was so good, words do it no justice.

I arrived without a reservation, but was provided service with a smile as they moved things around to accommodate me. Once seated my handbag was also provided with a little seat, so not to sit on the floor; a nice touch. My Waiter was helpful in assisting me with a wine selection. All my courses were served with a minimum... More

We ate here with my extended family of 7 and the food and setting are outstanding. They treated us like family and when we left, gave us a bottle of wine! Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy this gem and the attentive staff. We will be back!

I was here in a night in August and the restaurant was full. The gnocchi was fantastic, out of this world. But the service was cold and the moment of the happy birthday was bizzare with a very uncool Brazilian song (I'm from Brazil!). If you love gnocchi, dont miss. The wine is great but that is easy, you are... More

This place was fantastic! We loved Siena and this restaurnt just topped it off for us. The waiters were attentive and knowledgable and the food was delicious. We tried the homemade chocolate pasta and white wild boar sauce in an attempt to be adventurous and were well rewarded! Can't wait to come back again! We are now Onde supporters!

My husband and I went to La Taverna di San Giuseppe on our second night in Italy for his birthday. The place is exactly what you'd imagine an old Italian restaurant to be - stone walls, candles, incredibly friendly and fun waiters (they put your purse on its own tiny chair (!) and unbelievable food. We ordered the bruschetta -... More

My husband and I booked this restaurant, following advice from fellow trip advisor reviewers. We enjoyed a lovely trip to siena and finished it off with an outstanding meal in this restaurant. The staff are extremely friendly. It is usually booked out and so the atmosphere is great. The food and wine was outstanding and good value as well. The... More
