Not the very best, but a lot of fun

We had a good but not great, but thoroughly enjoyable meal here. Our primi were delicious and homemade. For a second course we split the Fiorentina beefsteak. While it's normal for it to be quite rare, this version was so blue that it was actually cold in the center, which I found a little... read more

Superb food, friendly service and very reasonably priced. Location is excellent as near the Duomo, three of us had lunch there (no reservation, but they were very kind to accommodate us as place was busy....we ended up sharing a large table with a local family). Highly recommend the pappardelle with rabbit ragu if available. Very nice wine too. Been there... More

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
