Tradition and frugality

Not far from the city center, it is a very traditional place, in which dishes are objective, with no frills. Few options, huge quality, tradition is all around, filling the atmosphere from the narrow rooms to the cloth. Pick starters, or pasta, or meat: they will deliver with the right flavors and... read more

Oh my goodness, how do I describe to goodness of the gnocchi here? I was recommended this Osteria from our hotel, and was so so so impressed with the food. The gnocchi is the standout dish of my entire 6 week holiday, the bruschetta as also very enjoyable. Go here it is well priced and you won't be disapointed

Had dinner here tonight, the food was awesome, typical toscana. First and second dish werde both perfekt - simple but super delicious. Prices are pretty fair for the value provided + free regional shot in the end. Good wine as well! Be prepared for an only italian menu, staff will bei willing to help you. Go there!

Excellent restaurant near the city centre. Staff are extremely friendly and accommodating, had no issues with translating the menu for us. Food and atmosphere was very authentic! Cheaper and better quality that most of the restaurants in/around the Campo They also topped it off with a free shot of amaretto and grappa at the end of the meal which was... More

A friendly family and staff, a cozy place, good rustic food, nice wines - great place to end any day in Siena, one of the loveliest places on earth. We really loved this place.

Excellent food and service - feels like a family-run, long-established place. The prices are very good and the food is excellent. The portions are generous as well which is an added bonus (although I was too full to eat dessert). The staff are attentive and very friendly, even to non-Italian speakers like us...Plus free grappa / amaretto after dinner which... More

Think pillows of pasta like gnocchi should be, and then add a filling of fluffy ricotta. With a sauce that accents, but doesn't overpower. Incredible. And the hospitality is pure Siena. Come here. Just do it. And try to be nice (this is for the Americans...cause we can be quite judgemental when out of our 'element' aka chile's or olive... More

We had a great lunch here. The fantasia antipasti was awesome and the gnocchi with "secret" sauce were like little pillows. Also maybe the best tiramasu I had in Italy.
