Lovely small restaurant, just behind the busy Piazza del campo. We liked the menu, which was surprising because it had no standard tourist food at all.

During a tour of Siena, the group ate in a restaurant that would not accommodate my kosher-style needs (they wouldn't let me double-up on the pasta or replace the meat with a salad), so I chose to "wing it" for lunch. It turned out to be a great move because I stumbled upon Osteria Al Palchetto da Vittorio. This is... More

We had beautiful, fresh food for lunch here. We ordered Ribolitta, eggs with herbs and spinach. Delicious and simple. The ambiance is a nice break from the usual tourist places. The family was just finishing their meal and they welcomed us in. Clean, authentic and inexpensive.

Our visit to Siena was a disappointment as thunder and downpours were constant. However, the highlight was our discovery of this restaurant right off the Piazza del Campo. We went up a flight of stairs and were greeted by a friendly waitress. We shed our rain gear and settled in to dry out, warm up, and enjoy a meal. We... More

Just to give you some basic information, the menu contains mostly traditional food - no pizza or lasagne. We had very tasty chicken with lemon sauce and onions on the side. Side dishes were rather expensive (5,00€ for a small portion of potatoes or spinach, each). The spaghetti alle vongole (not listed on the menu) tasted very good as well.... More

We walked for a very long time trying to find a good restaurant to eat at and there were lots of restaurants in the Campo Plaza, but after looking at the menu at one of those restaurants, I turned around and met a nice local couple who recommended a restaurant just off the Campo. We had been traveling all day... More

We stopped in and ordered a caprese salad to start. Thrilled to see it included fresh basil. Then we had ravioli with tomatoes and gnocchi in a lemon sauce. Both were outstanding but the gnocchi is VERY rich. The house red wine capped off a fabulous lunch in a traffic free alley! Loved it.

We were walking back to our hotel and found this place. (Had actually been looking for another restaurant that had closed.) So glad we stopped here. Restaurant is newly opened, but the food is great! Restaurant is two blocks from the Il Campo, and on the street where the former Jewish ghetto was. Service was very good, attentive, food was... More
