My husband and I spent our honeymoon traveling around Italy. We visited Siena on day 10, and were dying to have that one special meal that we both agreed was perfection from the first bite to the last. Sotto le Fonti was our one perfect meal. We live the Napa valley and are spoiled with a plethora of incredible restaurants,... More

We had a fabulous lunch at this very comfortable restaurant. All of us found our selections extremely well prepared. My wife still raves about the "best roast pork she ever tasted" and my sister-in-law thought she had the best pasta dish (a wild boar ragu sauce) on her trip. Britta and Ian made us all feel welcome and very much... More

We had a truly divine meal here during out last night in Siena! What a pity because had we stayed, we would definitely have gone again!!! Staff are really efficient and friendly especially with foreigners, trying their best to make use feel at home and at ease despite language barriers! Truly excellent wine options too. Will definitely recommend to anyone... More

We visited this restaurant twice in a few months whilst our daughter was studying in Siena. It is well worth the walk away from the city centre to find it and enjoy great hospitality and wonderful food. It will be our first choice next time we visit Siena. (In particular we were able to book a table during the week... More

My girlfriend and I both thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Sotto le Fonti. After reading so many great reviews about the food and the great service offered by Britta and her husband I was a little anxious that it perhaps wouldn't live up to our expectations. I needn't have worried. Britta was so friendly and warm that it did feel... More

food was average for the area, and the service from the owner was good. Price was more than comparative restaurants with portion size comparatively less. however, the 1.5 euro cover charge AND 10% service charge left a bitter taste.

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
