Simple but good

We had lunch here on a sunny day and enjoyed the simple and honest cooking, and the cordial service – moreover, the house (red) wine was delicious. I admit that I would not have entered this restaurant without a sincere recommendation, despite being very well situated a few meters from the Piazza... read more

It's amazing how quiet Siena can be just one clock off the Piazza del Campo. We were looking for a nice lunch and roamed around until we found this place. We always enjoy sitting outside and these tables were cozy. We always look for places whee it seems the locals are dining. this was a good pick. My husband had... More

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
