Delicious pastas

We ate here after a visit to the cathedral. It was a very hot day and we glad of the airconditioning. The dining room had a brick curved ceiling and was lined with black and white photos of the Palio horse race. We had bruschetta to start. Our pastas were good- ravioli and gnocchi.

After a morning of sightseeing our group of 7 were walking by this restaurant, checked out the menu and decided to try it for lunch. We were ahead of the lunch rush, so surprised at how long it took for our entrees to arrive. And even then, some were still not ready. The dishes were tasty, but disappointed in the... More

We went there without a reservation and even though it was quite full, we got a table. Everything that we had was delicious - the pasta, the steak, the potatoes.... The ambience was really cozy and the majority of the crowd was local, which is always a good sign. I would highly recommend this place.

We had lunch here during our recent day trip to Sienna. The food was fresh, plentiful and very tasty. The service was excellent and the owner was very personable and friendly. I would recommend this place and would gladly go back again.

We ate lunch here on both occasions we've visited Siena and would happily return again. The pasta and wine are both excellent - we didn't sample anything else but would highly recommend it on these alone. A real gem of a place serving authentic Tuscan dishes and local wine. Loved it!

I'm currently studying in Siena and I popped into this restaurant for a quick bite to eat at lunch with several other students. The atmosphere and decor were fine and we were seated relatively quickly. We ordered drinks and were presented with the customary basket of bread before our meal - unfortunately this is where things went downhill. We were... More

I have been there with some colleagues during a business trip. The quality of the food is great. We had some "Fiorentina" (for the ones who do not know it is a thick T-bone steak), a dessert and some wine for 30 euros. The meat was wonderful, tender and cooked in the right way. Staff is nice and helpful about... More

This is the forth time we have visited this restaurant on four separate occasions on our travels to the Tuscan region. The owners/staff are always welcoming and accomodating. On this visit to Siena, it happened to be raining and we decided to go back to this same establishment to get a warm lunch and dry off. All four of our... More
