Couldnt be faulted

This was the closest restaurant to our hotel and we ate there on a wet night. The best meal of Tuscany and we only wished we had tried it earlier.

When I read the reviews of Fori Porta I assumed that the authors had not traveled much and that the reviews were inflated. I was so wrong! Don't let the humble exterior fool you. I agree with others that the food was some of the best we had during our two week trip. Relaxed atmosphere, reasonable pricing, lovely unassuming owner... More

We ate at many restaurants in the Siena area, and this one was a gem. It was modestly tucked away off the corner of a small street, but their food and service were excellent. This restaurant, unlike most in Tuscany, do not empty out your pocket book. Everything, even their incredible wine, was quite reasonable. The man working their was... More

Really one of the best Restaurant Ever i eat in Toscana. The owner Stefano is so so cute nice and competent that is a pleasure to be served by him. Anyway the appetizer was such a great Mozzarella di Bufala Tartare with Rucola and Fresh Tomatoes Pachino and Taggiasca Olives. The main Course was Strozzapreti with Crispy Breadcrumbs to The...

Fori Porta was recommended but it exceeded our expectations. Ate there twice. Had the Carbonara both times because it was so good. Everything was delicious and great service from the Stephen the proprietor. You just don't need more than you can get here.

We stayed at the Palazzo de Valli hotel across the street from the restaurant. We dined at the Fori Porta our first night in Sienna, and the food was so good we ate there all three nights, not just because of the convenience, but primarily because all the dishes we had were among the best we've eaten in Italy. Highly... More

We had a really nice evening here - tasty starters, amazing T-bone to share and Sienese desserts all washed down with a rather nice Chianti - perfect! I recommend to book ahead as they were quite busy the night we went, it would be a shame to be disappointed as there doesn't appear to be another good restaurant nearby.

The modest exterior gives little clue to just how good this restaurant is. We ate at this restaurant 2 out of our 3 days stay in the area.

Been eating great burgers for decades. Have gone to many of the places in books like "the best burgers in the U.S." We went to Fori Porta because it was close to our quarters and read the great reviews here. Ordered the Foriporta Chianina Hamburger made from the locally bred Chianina steers. Had local Pecorino cheese melted on top, as... More
