On the one hand, we were treated quite nicely here; on the other hand, as much as we wanted to really like what did seem to be a locals' spot, it was hit-or-miss. The 2 hits were the pici (local fat spaghetti) with a spicy garlic tomato sauce and a side of large white beans with mushrooms; the misses, however,... More

We went into the restaurant without a reservation right about opening time. No one was seated yet and I attempted the best I could to ask for a table in Italian. The person working there asked if I had a reservation and I apologized and said no. He waved me off and turned his back on me and walked away.... More

We went here on a recommendation. We found the service and food to be lacklustre. We were disappointed because it was obviously a local osteria and generally we find these to be excellent. Perhaps it was what we ate, perhaps they don't really like 'tourists' or perhaps they were having an off night. Judging by the other reviews, something was... More

Osteria del Gatto is not a super fancy restaurant but the food is hands down some of the best I've had, everything was wonderful. Our meal started out with an amazing bruschetta which was infused with so much flavor and had whole sliced tomatoes instead of chopped up pieces or a sauce. We also had a honey glazed pork that...

We picked this restaurant at random one evening, as an osteria the choice of wines is limited and no coffee, but the food and charming service more than makes for this.

Whether you crave handmade pasta, seasonal vegetables, or expertly cooked meats, this place is sublime. Marco is a master chef and he's created a charming osteria that serves innovative dishes rooted in the Tuscan tradition. Ate there twice with my brothers this summer and both meals were revelatory. The highlight of our dining in Italy.

Lets start with a very simple fact: this place is plain incredible. Not just because the portions are big (they are), but because all of the dishes envisioned by chef Marco Coradeschi are stuff you would pay an arm and a leg for in a premium gourmet restaurant. A true son of Siena and an enthusiast fisher, Marco displays full... More

We had the fixed price menu at lunchtime. It was great value with plenty to eat of a great quality. The restaurant is very friendly, professional and very well located, just around the corner from the Duomo.

After touring Siena all morning we selected this place based on Rick Steves guidebook. It is a small family operation with son (about 8 years old) on hand. Service was plain & rough but food was very good to excellent and we (2 couples) thought an excellent value. One couple each had pici and shared porcini cheese with fig jelly.... More
