Superb food & Tuscan romance

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... read 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

We selected this restaurant for dinner in central Siena because it was well recommended and our number 1 choice was closed on Sunday. The restaurant is located in the southern section of the historic center just off a main street that leads to the Duomo. On the inside there are 2 modest-sized dining rooms -- a main room with brick... More

For a fish restaurant in Siena L'Osteria Di Castelvecchio can’t be beaten. It is rather tucked away at the east end of the Via Castelvecchio but not too difficult to find and near to the Pinacoteca Nazionale. The decor is simple and pleasant and the food excellent. The langoustine was just wonderful and the salmon and squid can be highly... More

Castelvecchio was a great suggestion from our hotel. Modern and comfortable decor with a fun, friendly and slightly quirky staff made for a very enjoyable meal. The wine list is very reasonable and the menu pricing is very fair. The mixed fried seafood dish was huge and wonderful. We would certainly go again
