A delightful restaurant, food, staff & restaurant itself is great. We celebrated my Husband's birthday here and the whole staff came to clap & sing along. Free Prosecco & Panacotta with candle, very happy friendly people. Food was very very good, although I was a little disappointed with my Rabbit. but everything else amazing. Husband loved his Steak & Truffles.... More

...but this may have been the best meal I've had in Tuscany. The location is excellent (very close to Piazza del Campo), and the restaurant is pretty cute with a very cool wine/cheese cave that you can poke around. The waitstaff was incredibly attentive and knowledgable, and treated my table superbly despite us being a young and boisterous group. Unlike... More

A great welcome, superb atmosphere and excellent service. The meal was outstanding with a good and interesting menu all beautifully prepared and served. A good wine list and knowledgeable staff to recommend pairings. This was by far our best meal in Italy during the holiday.

The atmosphere, food and service are top notch at this restaurant. You can tell the owners care about the quality of the food as well as their guests. As other diners have said - this is not a restaurant to be missed. Make sure you make reservations.

We asked a number of people on their opinion of a great restaurant to visit and everyone said that "Taverna di San Giuseppe" should not be missed. Everyone...you were right! The servers and hosts were wonderful and our server kept coming by and shaving more and more truffles on my pasta dish. I was in a truffle coma and that... More

It didn't start well. I tried to make a booking for 8pm and was told I could only do 7pm or 9pm! What is this, some throw back to ocean liners in the 60s: victims of their popularity perhaps. The venue is beautiful; the staff plentiful and attentive: bravi. However the food was of the standard experienced in other restaurants... More

My wife and I spent April 2015 traveling Italy. While in Siena we were able to book reservations for a Friday night 7:00 seating at La Taverna di San Guiseppe. The wild boar was out of this world and the gnocchi with black truffles was amazing. The house red wine was very nice and also reasonable. The restaurant is quite... More
