This family-run osteria is down below the walls of Siena and a bit of a trick to find (just head left when facing the Cathedral and follow the signs for the escalators - funiculore). However, it is well worth the 10 minute walk ( and you can take the escalator back up). You will be warmly greeted by Britta and... More

Small and cozy atmosphere serving the finest Tuscan cuisine at very good prices. Bretta, one of the owners, is very kind and friendly. We would definitely recommend this restaurant as a MUST visit in Siena. And be sure to ask "panacota" homemade by Bretta, simply magnificent!

My wife and I were on our honeymoon and found this place through a search right here on TripAdvisor. WELL worth the walk down the hill! A phenomenal meal and we were fortunate to be there during a slow time between lunch and dinner so had a good conversation with the owners Britta and Roberto.

If you are travelling to Siena, then a visit to this restaurant is truly recommended. Such an amazing experience. Not only for big "meatarians" like me but also for vegetarians...my family loved it. In Britta you will find a great host who despite being so busy, will always find time to come and sit down with you and have a... More

We had a wonderful meal at this lovely restaurant, right outside the walls of Siena. The space is warm and inviting and the hostess, Britta, couldn't be nicer. We were one of the first to arrive for the dinner hour and she spent a great deal of time talking to us. Even when the restaurant began to fill up, she... More

We had a very good meal at Sotto Le Fonti during our family vacation. As we were travelling with an one year old baby, the owners were very helpful and kind in assist us with our extra needs. And the food, after all, was delicious and well prepared! We definitely recommend this restaurant!
