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

We were in Siena for 4 nights and we ate here our first night. The food was so good we came back again our last night too! Britta, who is German and speaks 4 languages, runs the front of the house and her husband, who is italian, is the chef. They have created a homey and comfortable place with amazing... 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

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
