Charming local restaurant

We visited as two couples and, as the restaurant is small, took the precaution of booking which would be essential in a busier season. The restaurant is virtually opposite the Santa Caterina car park which is very useful. My wife and I had the speciality Cinta Senese antipasto which is more than... read more

Returned to our favorite restaurant in Siena on our recent vacation. Love the food & warm welcome we always receive from Britta & Roberto when we visit. Found this little gem years ago on our first trip to Siena & return as often as possible. We've recommended to many friends who agree with us.

The 4 of us visited and had a most enjoyable & memorable meal. Roberto & Britta are a smashing couple who are the owners. We even met their children. The appetizers, meals, wine were the best we had since arriving from Nova Scotia. We will most definitely return before we go home!!!

We had our first experience of fresh truffles, served with a very simple pasta. It was sublime. The dessert menu is imaginative and the desserts we chose were perfect. The wine list is beautifully matched to the menu. Our host, Britta, serves with grace and humour. She's happy to advise on meal choices and matching wine to food. She also... More

We had the Cinta Senese pig cold platter. It was really good. The pici with cinta senese pork ragu was also very good. They also had a great wine selection. Better than the food was the hospitality from the owners. The experience made our day. Thanks.

It was one of the most magical birthday party in my life. I arrived in Siena late and it was the first restaurant on my way. I opened the door and saw a small and cozy Italian restaurant, then Brita came to me, she smiled and invited to go inside, I felt at home! And I said to myself that... More

We came late at Siena and were keen for a tipical and good tuscan dinner. With luck we found this small but autentic Osteria. The first course Maremmani as well as the Fiorentina steak were exellent. We made a good choice for a tuscan Merlot too, recommendet by the house. Hence you should go there and you will find a... More

This is a small family run restaurant managed with a lot of care. I'm vegetarian so I can mainly speak to the pastas, but the food was very good and the intimate atmosphere is lovely and welcoming. It is also out of the way of the hordes of tourists, so it is a good place to enjoy a more traditional... More

We spent two weeks in Italy in August and this was our least favorite meal of the entire trip. Although the host was nice (her rude and condescending responses to some reviewers below, however, indicate otherwise) and attentive, the food was extremely bland and disappointing. Everything that we ate lacked in flavor and was difficult to finish. I'm a huge... More

Dear, I really doubt that your review is an authentic and true one, and I will explain you why: When I personally has been so disappointed about the food, I would talk immediately to the waiter, so they can try to offer me some solution. When I am upset with a place, I won't wait half a year to write... More

When my friends from Austria were in Siena, I want to show them, what is a typical tuscan restaurant. We went in the Osteria Enoteca Sotto le Fonti and it was all right for all of us.
