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.

A little tricky to find and outside of the city walls but you can use the city's escalators if you need, you'll definitely need them to get back! Warm host and hostess, small restaurant but very much delivers. If like me you appreciate good food and great service you won't be disappointed. Great wine selection too and the hostess knew... More

I thought I'd wander outside of the tourist circle, and very glad I did. Britta was so lovely, and I got a table straight away. Food was beautiful and also a little different - local produce/dishes vs tourist spaghetti bolognese with no flavour. Highly recommended!

I ate here 3 times over the course of 2 weeks and each time the food was excellent and the service from the owner Britta was welcoming and attentive. It's also good value, and close to escalators up to the city centre.

We had trouble finding the restaurant as it is a little outside the town walls, we arrived late but received a very warm welcome from the lady owner. The food was excellent the steak was beautifully cooked and the pasta truffle wonderful. We chose a wine recommended by the owner which was also excellent. RECOMMEND.
