This restaurant has been through a bit of a transformation and has evolved from serving classic Italian plates to serving the old classic with a spin of sophistication. I have been there several time and the food was always excellent and the staff very observant, knowledgeable and entertaining. The only critical point I would raise is the quantity of the... More

We found this place on the recommendation of a taxi driver. Well, they do know the best places for their nights off! It's a bit off the beaten track, but definitely worth seeking out. Our table of four all had different starters and mains, yet every plate was declared delicious and one of the best finds on our trip to... More

For a romantic dinner with my girlfriend I booked a table at Dolceforte. The interior of the restaurant is very nice and has an elegant, yet cozy and slightly romantic feel. The perfect place for a dinner with my girlfriend. The menu is great, a good selection of various dishes and for a good price. The food was great and... More

We had the zucchini pie and prosciutto e melon for our appetizers which was a lovely start to our lunch. This followed with pici with garlic and tomato and ravioli with beef ragu. Great meal, lovely service and funky decor. Pasta was cooked to perfection and the balsamic vinegar & olio was a great condiment. Definitely a favorite.

we ate here in the evening, no booking. Food well cooked standard Tuscan fare. The restaurant sells home made beer which is a plus if you enjoy trying different beers. Outside seating in a street which was not too busy and noisy

This is one of the best meals I've had in Italy in the 7 weeks I've been here. There isn't a bad thing on the menu. We got bruschetta and a salmon and mango salad the first day. For meals we got the meat ravioli and pici (thick noodles in a tomato garlic sauce). Both are highly recommended. Plus they... More

Good food. This is a good place to go if you don't want to pay tourist prices out at the Piazza del Campo. They do not speak English so don't speak louder, just try to point and use your broken Italian.

We went here because of the good reviews on tripadvisor. Well it was as good as they said! We had bruscetta for starter and then the ravioli and the pasta alla vongole and both were delicious. Really italian quality!

I spent several guilty hours, soaking up the stylish jazz-cool atmosphere, after overeating their outstanding, but authentic, Sienese food and wine. Don't forget to sample their delicious homemade Balsamic vinegar. Just lovely.
