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 walking to the parking lot from the Duomo area. It had the Trip Advisor sign in the window and we decided to have a late big lunch and skip dinner. The biggest draw was the Rabbit on the menu. Husband had the rabbit with a salad and I had the curried pork tenderloin... More

This is quite easily one of the best Italian restaurants at which I have ever eaten. I have spent quite a bit of time in Italy (and at various cities—Milano, Roma, Napoli, Pisa, etc.). The food is absolutely fantastic. The Tuscan soup, rigatoni with sausage, gnocci to name a few items. The molten lava chocolate cake is great. The Aurelia... More

The restaurant is very near the Duomo area, and the prices don't show it. Great hours, and by the afternoon rush, this restaurant was slammed with locals. The food was fresh, delicious, and well-portioned for the price. Lots of families and couples, an outdoor seating area, and air conditioning inside. The only negative was the House Wine. Not a very... More

My partner and I visited this restaurant on a whim and both thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the service. I had the gnocchi and it was so delicious I had to return! It really was the best gnocchi I have ever eaten! My husband also enjoyed his meal and was happy to return for another meal during our stay in... More

We arrived late for a reservation that had been made by a local at this restaurant. He had highly recommended it. He was right. The food was excellent and the service was great and gracious despite our late arrival. I would say that this restaurant is a "must do" in Siena.

We ate here by recommendation of the hotel as we wanted somewhere close. This was a great choice. Be warned it is not a bar nor does it have a toilet (next door) but if you are truly out for dinner and maybe a bottle of wine, this is a place to have on your list. Food very fresh, well... More

We were initially disappointed that we could not have an outside table at this restaurant, but in the end we found the inside seating so comfortable and calming. The service was impeccable in every way - not overly friendly but personable. We had excellent wine with a fresh green salad and a risotto dish. This was one of the best... More
