Great find in historic Sienna center

We just randomly bumped into this place. We honestly did not even see the inside of the restaurant. It's located on a steep street overlooking part of the city, and because of the steepness there's only few 'theater like' arranged tables outside. Great for people watching as well. We liked the idea... read more

We ate here on our first night. The waiters were friendly and multi lingual. We particularly enjoyed the Gnocchi and Bruschetta. I left my hat there and they made sure I got it back next day...I was delighted...the wife had a different view...she never liked my hat.mmmm

We were looking for a lovely restaurant with beautiful food and little did we know that this amazing place was just few minutes away from our hotel! The food selection and quality is great, tasty local vines and friendly service. Would go again!

We visited for lunch. Attentive, charming service with great food for those gluten free. If we had stayed longer we would have lunched here every day to sample the full menu. The kitchen was gluten segregated and obvious for those who wished to see the food prep area. We sat outside to appreciate the view of the rooftops.

Wonderful restaurant with excellent gluten-free options. The pasta was outstanding, as was the desert (Creme Brulee). The service was outstanding. Highly recommend.

Great taste of pasta and best roast pork with bacon. Nice to sit around with a couple glasses of chianti local wine. Sitting out side if weather is okay.

This is a lovely little restaurant that unfortunately needs to rethink the way it is staffed. We had a reservation but were seated in a drafty downstairs area that seemed to get forgotten by the staff. It was a struggle to get menus, order drinks and food. The main problem seemed to be that there were not enough servers to... More

I am sorry about this unfortunate incident. Usually in October two floor staff is adequate to provide our clientele with the best service possibile, though on this particular night, and we remember it well, we were hit by an influx of customers that we were not expecting, all at the same time. It can happen in any restaurant and we... More

On a little steep street with many other choices, this place attracts more tourists than other places. Good food, only wine by the glass or bottle, unlike other places where you can get a half-litre of house isid spoken fluently, but the food is good as is the service. If you're uncomfortable with place that cater to local tastes, you... More
