I ate here with my hubby and four friends in June. The restaurant came highly recommended by a MasterChef winner, so expectations were high. We were not disappointed. The owner's welcome was warm and friendly, the food fantastic and there was even gluten free pasta, which was much appreciated by me with all my various food intolerances! As previously mentioned...

A simple trattoria with good (not outstanding) food at excellent prices in a simple and rather plain setting opposite a carpark. The main advantage is that it is indeed away from the main tourist traps and therefore much quieter. Depends what you are after - if you want the buzz and atmosphere of the old city this is not for... More

This restaurant really lives up to its reviews. Friendly and welcoming, delicious Tuscan food. We just wish we'd tried the steak - it looked delicious and seemed to be popular with all the diners! Definitely worth the short walk out of town.

Forget about the tourist traps by Il Campo, this place is both welcoming and serves great Tuscan food. It's located near S Caterina parking, at the bottom of the escalator. Buy a bottle as wine comes in very small glasses.

Sotto le Fonti is just outside the city center but if you are staying inside the center it's definitely worth the little walk. It's a nice restaurant with a great selection of wines (as the word Osteria already suggests) with a traditional rustic interiour. The food is excellent and Roberto and Britta are lovely people which will instantly make you... More

Great food, great international atmosphere in a nice setting. The service was perfect, always with a smile. Nice location with a view on the Duomo, not too far from the Siena city center. No problem for vegetarians to pick something without meat.

We picked this restaurant based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. The food tasted great and the service outstanding. We had a really nice walk up the hill afterwards and all the way around back to the Siena city center. It is definitely worth going out of the city walls to visit this restaurant.

Sitting here after eating an amazing steak florintine, a divine lemon and basil pasta and a selection of cheeses I wonder if the magnificant Duomo is looking down on this restaurant or it is in fact restaurant looking down on the Duomo. A perfect meal in the opinion of 4 worldy adults . 10/10.
