Nice meal in Siena

This place was the closest restaurant from our hotel. It wasn't the best meal we've ever had, but it certainly wasn't the worst. You can tell it's the type of place you would go to when you simply want a nice meal out if you lived in Siena, but maybe not the place for a "special" occasion. Many... read more

I have to agree with CrowSF that this was an awful restaurant regarding the food. We had a large plate of cold cuts and then it went downhill form there. Liver & Onions we seriously overcooked with an awful gravy, shared spinach seriously overcooked and under seasoned pork roast completed the meal. Complimentary drinks were nice at the end of...

We loved our dinner here. We only had one course after a big lunch earlier in the day but all meals were excellent. Our hotel had recommended the gnocchi and the pici - both were great. Nice family feel to the place. Friendly service.

Yes, the menu is mostly the same as most places in Sienna, the difference being the food here is well prepared and flavorful. Service was also top-notch. Dog friendly and the place was full of locals.

You can read all the great facts about this place on other posts on Trip Advisor. Three things you need to know - if you don't want to pay for bread on your bill, just say "no grazie" and you'll not have bread on your bill. Order anything from the menu - it is local and edgy and tasty and... More

My travel companions had eaten here on two other trips to Siena and insisted we find this osteria on the little street. It was worth the hike away from the piazza! Order the ravioli--yum! Couldn't read the menu, but the place was full of locals and I could point to a wide variety of food on their plates. At the... More

Excellent restaurant. Ask for their gnocchi with a secret sauce that is simply delicious. Great service and excellent food. You can't ask for more. Highly recommended.

My husband chose this restaurant as it did get good reviews but it was very disappointing and I would not recommend it. Staff were not welcoming and the food was mediocre at best.
