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!

The staff at Taverna went out of their way to make our dinner a terrific experience. We had a bit of a mixup with a reservation but Lucas took care of rescheduling us and even called early to say a table had opened up. From the intro presentation with the vegetable soup all the way through the tiramisu with the... More

Un posto veramente eccezzionale dove cordialità, qualità e bontà si sposano in maniera sorprendente. Veramente bravi! Prima o poi torneremo! A truly exceptional place where friendliness, quality and goodness were married in amazing ways. Really good! Sooner or later we will come back! ;-)

Recommended by landlady. Also the only restaurant on the road we went to which would give us a table at 7pm on a Sat evening, though they explained that it was booked from eight. Every other place was "fully booked" even though most were nearly empty, and still had lots of space when we passed them again later. Obviously there... More

This restaurant is a little off the main square so it's less touristy and more delicious! The inside feels almost like a wine cellar and the staff is great. We ordered wine from a vineyard we went to and an appetizer of quail egg and polenta. For our primi we had ghnocceti with truffles and it was fantastic! We were... More
