The atmosphere is very cozy and hospitable, like a typical Tuscan home.Mauro Tigli - owner of the restaurant and chef of great experience and imagination, is here for turning on the taste of your palate with its extraordinary menu of traditional and medieval cuisine and Sienese and Tuscan recipes. Behind it all is a strong passion for the local products, personally selected by the chef from the meats to cheeses, from vegetables to homemade pasta. Excellent wine list with over 50 labels of the highest level ready to satisfy all your needs. In the upper floor, you will find a private, intimate and welcoming, of absolute elegance. The decor is characterized by a refined minimal design. An exclusive space where to celebrate an important occasion such as your birthday or your graduation party.

This restaurant has character and I enjoyed the food. I tried the tasting menu which was 25 euro and the server suggested that two people share it, which was nice of her because most restaurants would not say that. If you want to try a typical meal in Sienna, definitely try this place.

We ate here last night with our children and enjoyed excellent service and quality food. The people made us feel very welcome and explained the menu making some welcome suggestions.

our guide tood us to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, too gooooood... and the local liqueur offered at the end of the lunch was a very kind attention from the staff. The decoration directly from the Middle Age was charming.

Stopped in Siena for one night and found this place online. Great change from all your pizza parlours. The soups were incredible and the ravioli gorgeous. Duck was nice too, and roast potatoes brilliant. Manager Rocco, even gave us a recommendation for a good place in Florence which was our next stop! Very reasonable price.

Very nice location for this eatery which served us a set meal that was really nothing to get excited about. I would say if you are looking for atmosphere then this is an ok place, but if you are looking for a foodie experience, then I'd recommend looking elsewhere. The table wine was also pretty ordinary

Great little restaurant my friends took me to for my birthday. They offer typical, good Tuscan fare in a cozy room. The wine was great, and the food was fresh across the board. My gnocchi was the best I'd ever had, period. The service was very friendly, too. Recommended.

Our tour group stopped at Gallo-Nero for lunch on a weekday. We were led down some stairs to a private dining room in the basement. Starter was an antipasto plate, followed by pasta. The final course was a combination of grilled pork and beef shish kabobs. The house red wine was just average.

The Gallo Nero is a little off the main tourist track, but is well worth the short detour down towards the Porta Romana. Decked out in medieval style, the food is very good value and copious. Their medieval menu is definitely a meal for those who are hungry after a day tramping round the town and the monuments. At 25€... More
