A wonderful union of flavors and suggestions that will remind you the charm of the Middle Ages. Very close to the famous Piazza del Campo, in the heart of the historic center of Siena, you will find the exclusive Restaurant Gallo Nero. 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. Organize a lunch or dinner, attend a cooking class or a guided tasting of Tuscan wines, or simply spend a happy and convivial moment with your friends or your family.

Very good food, very slow service

The title kinda says it all. The food was delicious but we waited way too long for it and the restaurant wasn't full. Also between courses. And to pay. The service wasn't bad though! The waiter was very charming and sweet.

After a great walk around Siena, Gallo Nero was on our list of places (to eat) before leaving to continue our tour of the countryside. We had a fabulous 4 course lunch! The staff was very friendly. They took great care in pacing the meal nicely so that my wife and I could relax and enjoy each other's company!

The wonderful staff at Gallo Nero welcomed us into their restaurant for a cooking class at very short notice. The owner and head chef Mauro Tigli shared with us his 30yrs of experience during the demonstration whilst the lovely Federica translated for us.

We were here with a group in which the menu selection was prepared in advanced of our arrival and the meal paid by the sponsor. The wait staff was exceptional and did everything to satisfy our many requests. Since we were not provided a menu with the options and the cost of the meal, it is difficult to determine if... More

We went here after the Palio. The waitress was really lovely as was the caprese salad, but the pasta dishes were pretty average and the mixed salad pretty bitter. We went as my wife is gluten free and they had a separate menu but the pasta was pretty disappointing. Atmosphere and surroundings lovely but nothing special

Just came here for the second time. Fabulous food, magnificent service. The gluten free tagliatelle with ragù was much appreciated by my little girl. Grazie mille, torneremo.

Excellent restaurant. Meal is perfect even for Siena. Located on three levels. In the cellar good temperature even without air condition, but no coverage of cellular phones ( good from a certain point if view). Staff is English- speaking, friendly.
