Lovely old world charm restaurant near the piazza. Lovely gluten free choices including dessert. Would highly recommend this to gluten free and non gluten free travelers.

Nothing was right about the restaurant and it was the worst dinner we had in our two-week stay in Tuscany. The restaurant was actually recommended by our hotel (which we could not understand why), the 'highlight' being the waiters are dressed in medieval clothes. Once we stepped into the restaurant we immediately felt 'cheated'. There were only 2 waitresses, yes... More

The staff was trying to be so accommodating but it was not enough to divert from the mediocre food (bad veal sauce, almost tasteless pappardelle with porcini -we used the whole bowl of Parmesan- and an "ok" penne with zucchini), the terrible lighting inside, and the noisy, music-less environment. Since everyone was so loud around us, we put some Italian... More

This place has a great atmosphere, with its arching brick ceilings. The food offerings fit very well into Siena's medieval past, and the servers could not be more friendly. It's the only restaurant we've been to in Italy in which the water comes in huge containers and gets filled fast. Worth finding.

Lots of gluten free options on the menu for our little one. Good food, fast friendly service, good value for money, just a shame we had to rush off as we had the long drive back to Rome. Next time, we'll stay for dessert.

This was an included meal as part of a tour. The food wasn't exception by any means and not what we would expect for an Italian restaurant in Sienna. The atmosphere was very nice and the service was OK. We wouldn't return.

Went here after recomended by our hotel as The only celiac certified place in Sienna. It was awful. The wait staff was very unorganized. They forgot my salad. Brought our food out cold and my gluten free pasta looked worse than kraft macaroni and cheese. The other dinners were equally bad. They also had this singer and very loud drummer... More

My father is a wine producer and I went to the Gallo Nero with him to taste the traditional Bisteca alla Fiorentina and a good wine. We arrived at the restaurant with no reservation, but we were waiting for 40 minutes on our feet, in a passageway, between the WC and entrance doors, even with an available table for two... More

Cannot blame the servers for the poor Italian food. We have the pasta Tagliolini with Truffles and it was like eating yeast with Truffles. The fish was bland. The only thing that tasted like food was the water. Avoid it if you are interested in having a romantic or a good food experience. Truly, we feel bad for the servers... More
