pleasant dinner and good food

Saw the wild boar stew on the menu earlier in the day and returned for it at night. My wife saw the fresh mushrooms daily note and wanted that. Both very nice indeed. Side dish of simple potatoes, garlic and parsley was a great accompaniment. Service was stretched - Italy in August, that's... read more

I think L'Osteria has changed hands since I was last there but it still has the feel of a great local neighborhood restaurant that places very good food at reasonable prices as a priority and that is hard to find in Sienna. Sitting outside within inches of passing traffic was pretty hectic but never dull. Small place filled with families... More

Had a lovely afternoon at this restaurant all of us. Everyone enjoyed the place and the food was great. The staff was friendly and we can recommend this little place if you would something to eat. If you need to sit outside you may have to wait for a some time because they only have four table in front of... More

Tasty tasty tasty. We had excelent Pasta al Pomodoro and Gniocchi al Pesto - simple dishes yet cooked perfectly Yummi - especially the gniocchi was to die for. Potato chips were a special surprise - thinly cut slices and fried to a soft borderline crispy texture - we will remember them for life I am sure. Expected something "normal" and... More

This is a lovely little restaurant. Prices are very reasonable and portions are quite large. We ordered the short pasta with aubergine & peppers. It was very tasty & plenty to eat. The waiter was so friendly as well which made the different. Would recommend it for a bit of lunch !

Warm welcome to this restaurant frequented by locals & tourists. Good food reasonably priced. We choose this instead of the tour reps suggestion having found it by chance. Would return.

After walking around Siena for many hours we were headed to the parking lot but decided we better have something before heading home. We passed this restaurant and decided to have lunch – good decision. It is a quaint Tuscan restaurant. We had the wild boar that was heavenly and the osso bucco was top notch – very tender. The...

We had dinner here last night. It felt like we were eating in someone's home. It was delicious! One waiter spoke English and was very nice! We had Filet and tagliatelle with pork. Both were great! Dinner, wine and dessert for 80 Euros. Loved it!!!

We recently had lunch at L'Osteria while touring Siena. This quaint and small osteria is nicely decorated with a rustic motif. Chill Out and jazz music played over L'Osteria's audio system, adding to the relaxed atmosphere. Seating is limited, so reservations are suggested, especially for the evening meal. There were also a few tables outside under umbrellas. Tables are topped... More
