My wife and our two traveling companions ate here on our last evening in Sienna and had one of the best meals of our stay in Italy. Staff was friendly and outgoing and the food was excellent. We were the only patrons when we arrived on a Friday night, but by the time we left, the restaurant was full, primarily... More

Since we were staying at the Hotel Minerva, I used tripadvisor to try to locate a restaurant close by. This one is directly across the street and was a great find. We arrived at 7 and were the first couple seated. We were warmly greeted by the owner who was our server for the evening. He patiently explained the menu.... More

We had booked in advance and they were ready when we arrived even though we were late. We had ordered a set menu for the table and changed it shortly before and then again during our meal. The food was abundant, delicious and unique (some of the lost delicious, smokey grilled eggplant I've ever had). They catered to our vegan... More

This is a very romantic restaurant just inside Siena's old city wall but nicely set away from the tourist scene! The atmosphere is quiet, elegant, and intimate! This is a place where the locals dine, and that's always a good sign that the food is regional and authentic! The food was splendid, and the wine list was superb too! Great... More

L'Oro di Siena is definitely not a tourist spot. This small, quaint restaurant just outside the city walls near Hotel Minerva has well prepared Italian fare with attentive service. Definitely worth the short excursion away from the historic area.

Very quaint, excellent service and delicious food. We arrived 1045pm, were the last table and they did not rush us out. Would recommend.
