“Classic old taverna in Siena”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Be sure to make a reservation at this classic taverna in Siena for a fun dining experience in an old wine cellar like structure. The food, service and wine were all great. Consider going for lunch instead of dinner.

“Absolutly wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Everything in this restaurant is great : the service (it was Luca who serves us with such efficacity and gentleness), the food which is fine and delicious. The restaurant is in the heart of Siena.

“Mouth watering”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

The reviews on trip advisor were not wrong! As soon as we walked in the door they made us feel welcome. The waiters were very attentive and flexible with our ordering. Started with some antipastos- pork sausage on puff pastry and the porcini mushrooms- which left us breathless! Our mains did not disappoint either. Followed by mouth watering deserts! It was one of the best experiences we've had in Italy thus far.

“World-class food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

We ate here during the off-season (November) and had no issue getting a table at the last minute. We walked in and they told us as long as we were done eating before 9, we had a table for our party of 6. The food was very well prepared. I recommend the Bistecca Fiorentina, which is about a 1kg porterhouse cooked perfectly to medium rare…enough steak for 2 people! The rest of the dishes were equally as delicious, but the quail egg served with truffles served over warm polenta was one our favorites. The food was a bit pricey, but not expensive by any means. After our night here, it was easy to see why this is the number 1 rated restaurant in Siena.
