overall, the best restaurant that I dined in in Siena. Overall, the food is fresh and seasonal and served in a modern setting. The chicken liver pate on crostini is a must!

I find it hard to believe that this fantastic restaurant is ranked #54 in Siena. The food was so amazingly good here, we returned the next night. We saw no reason to take a chance on any other place after being floored the first night. Of the 10 dinners we ate in four cities, this was the second best. Service... More

In fact we saw the entrance of this restaurant while searching for La Taverna di San Giuseppe which is highly advised by TripAdvisor. Osteria Castelveccio is a little hidden due to recent renovation works outside. Nevertheless, we entered the restaurant without reservation, hungry and tired from walking all day long. The waiters were very kind, immediately show us a nice... More

This was our first trip to Italy for over ten years and our first ever to Tuscany. We found the service very good everywhere we went to in Siena with all the service staff working very hard. Well done! We had to get used to the cover charge which I knew nothing about. Perhaps it is in all the guide... More

Had a good lunch here, was a nice "hidden" place with good service. The place was nicely decorated and had a good atmosphere. Only not good thing, is that they make you pay for the 5 slices of white old bread (hard, dried out).

We went here based on the reviews on tripadvisor and the fact it is in a reasonable walking distance from our hotel; although this being Siena it meant a stiff walk back up the hill after the meal. The restaurant is split into a couple of seating areas and the ambiance is simple and modern. The service is good and... More

We came to this restaurant after look around the Duomo area to dinner and decided it by Tripadvisor. Gorgeous food: tortellini nero di sepia filled with prawns, and fish with a special sauce made with nuts, prawns and cherry tomatos. The staff were excellent. The price was good for that dinner. THANKS

This was one of our favorite places to eat. We had 2 lunches and 1 dinner here. There was one particular lunch that we enjoyed - one afternoon we were walking around and decided that we would like to do just appetizers and wine so we stopped in to this restaurant and had the most wonderful bowl of steamed clams...

We had dinner downstairs in the cellar where we had a starter with raw salmon and main course pasta with lobster. We had a Franciacorta brut for both dishes. Very good food, good service. Not too expensive for this quality.

The food was very well prepared, best chicken liver I've had and pastas were elegant and perfectly cooked. In all we ordered two appetizers, two pastas and a half bottle of wine, oh and of course a bottle of water. My only problem were the EXTRA charges not noted on the menu. We paid 2 euro each as a "service... More
