La Taverna del Capitano was recommended by our hotel. Our hotel made reservations for us, and although the restaurant was fairly empty at our 19:30 reservation, by 20:00 it was full with people waiting to be seated. Easy to find, the restaurant is about 500 feet from the Duomo. The restaurant maintains a wonderful ambiance including a vaulted ceiling with... More

We chose this restaurant according to review in travel book for budget and Sienese food. Conveniently located near Duomo and good atmosphere inside. I chose the daily menu of gnocchi with rabbit which was good. However, was not impressed with the pile of tripe on my plate as my main. Totally unappealing to the eye. This dish really did require...

It was recommended by the hotel. We asked for a casual place, with good food, where locals would eat. We wanted a place with outside seating and there were few tables pushed so close together that once you sat down on the inside you were closed in. It did not look great, but there were people already sitting there, so... More

La Taverna del Capitano. Staying in the former pig sty in HPB’s Stigliano palazzo, we took the Siena walking tour with a charming and knowledgeable guide called Martina, of My Tour, who took us and explained all that was worth knowing about this beautiful city, She completed our tour inside the duomo and told us much about the stunning marble-work...

After a bus trip from Florence and seeing much of historical center of Siena, we stopped here with the hope we would have a good late lunch. It worked out OK!! We shared an interesting bruschetta ... one piece of toasted bread with oil, one with cheese, one tomato and one onion... best bruschetta we had in Italy (we had... More

We would have loved to have stopped here for a drink and bite to eat on our recent visit to Siena, but it was not to be. As we approached the outside tables intending to sit, or be seated, there were two members of staff in the doorway. One of them, a fat man in a t-shirt, shook his head... More

We found this restaurant as we were strolling along the meandering streets of Sienna. We eat here on 3 occasions and feel that we can give a good perspective on this gem. First off the staff are really friendly and welcoming. Inside there are amazing pictures on all the walls relating to the horse racing in Sienna. The owner himself... More
