Do not be put off by first impressions as you enter what appears to be a dingy delicatessen and take-out pizza joint ! We nearly left but then a waitress, who has some English, led us through the building to a courtyard in back where tables are set under large parasols. In the evening, lemongrass candles keep mosquitos away :-)... More

We have been in taverne d'arbia many times but have never been aware of this local restaurant. But I must say - that has been a mistake. This restaurant serve lovely Tuscan food in a very relaxed atmosphere. The price level is good compared to quality. All in all our best recommendations.

Upon recommendation from a friend, i sat down for dinner at 8pm and we were the only ones there. 30 minutes later the restaurant was almost full. The brick interior and framed autographed pictures on the walls made for a nice ambience, and the food was great. Meats are aplenty, and i would absolutely order a steak, veal chop, or... More

Discovered this " not in the city" spot when we didn't want to deal with parking and traffic! So glad we did. The food was delicious and the neighborhood was local which we enjoyed, no real tourists here! Try the grilled meats, they were wonderful especially the chicken and rosemary and the pork steak. The service was friendly and they... More

We found the restaurant on sat nav and checked with the hotel they said it was good, so we decided to go there, parking is very easy and you can nearly park outside of the restaurant . It does not look much from the outside but they have an inside area and a large outside area to dine. We sat... More

We had a really good evening at this restaurant. Although this is place was further away from Siena than we expected, driving there was not hard - took only about 10 mins and it was definitely worth it. Although we arrived close to the end of the night, we had booked a table and were reassured to hear that the... More

Most restaurants around Siena are good, and il Locale di Guido is no exception. The food is very good, in particulart the steak, but it is a bit out of the way from the old town. Recommended if you are in the area, but check your map first!

We had a great dinner at Il Locale. Very nice disches ranging from pizza to more sofisticated disches. The owner really wants to stand out by quality and he does ! Price / Quality is very interresting. Good service and very nice wine selection (very cheap compared to the average Siena restaurant). Highly Recommended !
