Very good

Lunch al fresco the day of the palio. The tortino di melanzane was outstanding. Gnocchi and pici with veal were good but not memorable. Service was, as often around these area, outstanding. Friendly, well informed, prompt but not fussy. We felt treated like family. Would go back to try more... read more

We had lunch here during our day trip to Siena. Service was extremely friendly, food and wine tasty and prices are very reasonable. I also likes the interior of this place.

We have had a nice lunch in this restaurant. The service was nice, maybe a bit slow. The food was tasty, the portions could have been a little larger. Overall a good place to eat in the city centre.

We had a lovely meal sitting on their small but very pleasant out door sitting space. It was a balmy evening, so sitting outside was our choice. We had a nice bottle of their very good house wine, a large plate of vegetables and some cacio e pepe (spaghetti with cheese and pepper). All of it was terrific.

Great food with a charming decor. Walls covered with artistic photos of the Palio di Siena (horse race of Siena), which is a major event held twice a year. Service was poor because one server was visible. Had to order the check 4 time to catch my train to Florence.

Lovely place, big, noisy but cosy interior. Owner is enthusiastic, but always busy talking to his regulars and locals. Tourists get put to the wayside. Food is great, nice Tuscan fare with a twist. My rabbit especially was sublime. The wait staff were deer in the headlights, but not for a lack of trying and goodwill. The owner clearly does... More

We had a really good experience. As an entry we had a mix of antipastos and as main dish a delicious tagliata! I highly recommend

We ate here on July 2, 2015 after the Palio. We had spotted it earlier when we were going to have lunch but opted for a quick sandwich rather than a more luxurious lunch. There were tables available when we walked in around 9:30 p.m. but they filled up fast. The service was a little slow to start. The presentation... More

Just a great meal, - try the rabbit entree it's really cooked well and has great presentation. The food here was some of the best tasting I had in Italy during my stay, the food is also reasonably priced - you will not regret a visit to this place, there's other restaurants with more reviews that do not deserve the...
