I was there during my visit in Italy on November 2014. Some local friends invited me for dinner and the experience and quality of food great. When we stepped in Guido welcomed us telling to Spiro that his friends will go back to the USA very Happy......he was right. Will be too long to describe the salami and the wild... More

A modest looking tavern opposite the church of Taverne d'Arbia, the Locanda di Guido, is a last outpost of Sienese refinement on the road to Arezzo or Asciano and the Crete Senesi steppes. The quality of everything is superb: the Chianina beef and the Cinta Senese pork (from the outstanding local butcher), the House Red (from Montepulciano), the coffee, the... More

We went there for a quick romantic dinner. The atmosphere is cosy but - at the same time - typical and perfect for a romantic night. The service is supreme: very nice people, they brought an extra appetizer just for us to try it. Also, they offered two typical liquor at the end of the dinner. The price? Super cheap... More

The place is very nice inside and the service fast. Local .... great to taste the traditional cuisine of Siena. Excellent value for money. Impeccable service and a wide selection of wines. Do not miss it!!

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
