Find right outside Siena

Excellent place slightly outside Siena (Porta Romana), probably not too many people know about it due to the location but try the peposo and the pork stuffed cabbage!

We stayed across the street at Palazzo Di Valli and we were so thankful this excellent restaurant was walking distance from our hotel. The owner is very friendly and warm and the food is excellent. Don't miss the appetizer of small onions stuffed with sausage and cheese. All the pastas we had were excellent as were the meat secondi. Also,... More

We stayed at Palazzo Di Valli across from the restaurant in October. After eating at the top rated restaurants in the city center we found Fori Porta to have better food for a much lower price. Quaint and welcoming, this is a great place to eat like the locals.

Near to our hotel and appeared to be well used by other guests. A limited menu but some great Tuscan dishes on it. Small family run business but service relatively quick. Can recommend the Rabbit and house red!

Recommended by the hotel, and doesn’t look like much on the outside but OMG! GREAT food, nice ambiance, great service, a lot of different options on the menu, very reasonably priced. The stuffed onions are awesome and the pork filet was outstanding! Outside the walls of Siena, but a great find!

Fori Porta was recommended by our hotel; it was a short walk from the hotel which was just outside the Porta Romana - thus the name. There was a mix-up with our reservation name but that was worked out, and became a fun interaction as we went back the second night - it was that good! The owner/manager is friendly... More

The four of us had an excellent meal (top 3 on our 2-week visit to Tuscany). Very pleasant service from the owner. Its a ten-minute walk from Hotel Santa Caterina, shorter for Hotel Porta Romana.

This was an excellent restaurant close to our hotel - excellent food - try the stuffed onions! - good wine list at reasonable prices. We loved this place so much we went 3 times - would have had lunch there on our last day but sadly they were closed.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local and proved to be a wonderful place for an extended evening mail. The owner was very friendly and welcoming with the food being of an outstanding quality and we particularly enjoyed the chicken and bistecca dishes along with the appetisers and dessert menu which included a magnificent strawberry tiramisu. The restaurant... More

We ate here on the recommendation of our hotel, Palazzo di Valli, which was just across the street and we were not disappointed! The food was fresh and very tasty and it looked like only 2 people working and serving at least 10 tables of 2 or more people. Wonderful meal at a modest price!
