Definitely go there!

It is our favorite restaurant in our 16 day Italy trip. The food taste so amazing that we went there two nights in a roll. I would probably go there again if I stayed longer. And the price is surprising reasonable. It even has different menu for the two days we ate. It is small but very... read more

We ate dinner with our family and had a wonderful meal. We enjoyed meeting the owner and really appreciated how proud he was of his restaurant and his fabulous culinary creations. We can not wait to go back to Siena and del Gatto.

While not our best meal in Siena, the restaurant was perfect for a reasonable supper. We enjoyed our pasta and the local ambience.

We ate here twice because both Rick Steves and the staff at the Hotel Athena recommended it. It's a small place that seems to serve at least as many locals as tourists -- at least we heard a lot of Italian. Our server (who I think is also the owner) never cracked a smile at us even when we praised... More

My wife and I heard about this place from Rick Steves' a italy 2015. We love to eat at local restaurants and this place delivered. We were hesitant to go in at first because the decor was rustic and the place was noisy. But once we entered and sat down, we felt entirely comfortable choosing to eat there. The atmosphere... More

The staff made us feel very welcome. The decor is not much, but the food was great. We asked our server/chef to chose one thing from each menu section for us to share and he gave us a wonderful Tuscan dining experience. Highly recommend!

A simple restaurant with excellent food. We have the beef cooked to perfection and roasted onion as a side order - it was simply delicious. The biscotti with hazelnuts is a definite must.

Read the reviews. Staying around the corner. Tried to book, no answer for several hours. Went around at 7:30 pm and the place was closed. No sign on the door. Tried again the next evening, same thing.

We loved this small restaurant with attentive service and excellent food. This is the type of small establishment that makes a trip to Siena. The prices seem inexpensive for the quality and service that you will receive.

We happened to walk in one evening without a reservation and got a table. The place is small, but quaint. The home-made pasta dishes were outstanding and the house red was pretty good. The service was quick and the waiter explained the parts of the menu which we did not understand. We tried to walk in another night because it... More
