Last Minute Lunch in Siena

We were just passing through Siena on our way to Venice, and decided to grab a bite to eat. Fortunately, I had a few restaurants in my back pocket. Unfortunately, they were all closed for holiday. So stumbling through Siena's alleys, we found Osteria Castelvecchio. What a great find. My wife... read more

We picked this place because it looks wonderful and inviting on the outside. The menu didn't live up to expectations. We ordered the spinach tarte which was basically some spinach moulded into a circle. The menu stated that all mains came with a side of veg but this wasn't the case with veg main dishes. It would have been nice... More

While Castelvecchio is a superb place for couples with its subdued light and charming interior, there's no reason why families and small groups looking for a good meal shouldn't stop by. Both the rabbit pasta and wild boar stew are recommended, though the menu caters for all tastes, and the friendly and attentive staff will help you out if you're... More

A bit off the touristic beaten path (if that's even a possibility), this hidden osteria is a nice choice for a quieter diner. Frequented by locals and tourists alike, the service was fast and the staff was friendly. They have 4 vegetarian options on the menu which was a nice surprise. I had ribollita and also the spinach flan with... More

I and my family enjoyed their meal. It is restaurant with modern interior design. I was not sure to eat there or not but review I have read persuaded me to give them chance. We made good choice. Only what I suggest to manager of the restaurant YOU MUST change your waiters. They are lazy and know nothing about your... More

Over the years we've been visiting Siena, we've had favorite restaurants fail us -- good ones turn into not-so-good ones. But Castelvecchio remains excellent. The service is good, the food excellent, with a little more imagination than many other places. Nothing too outrageously fancy, just good twists on some of the local favorites. We eat there at least once or... More

Had a very good meal there. Service was professional and un-rushed. House wine was great, the Ribbolita was fantastic. I had pasta with shrimp which was very good, wife had pork stew- excellent
