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.

I went with my boyfriend. He had the steak and I had the swordfish. Both dishes were fantastic. Easily one of the best meals we had in Italy. Also, the tiramisu was one of the best we have ever had. Waitress was really friendly, nice decor and overall great experience.

Away from the main tourist drag we had this restaurant recommended to us by our hostess. Wonderful little find! Small intimate setting with both indoor and outdoor dining spaces and friendly staff who generously explained menu terms we were unfamiliar with. I had the squid ink seafood pasta (watch out for the black sauce as it stains!) and ricotta mouse... More
