“Friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a lovely little restaurant with really friendly staff. They made great recommendations on food and wine. The food was really tasty. Just off Il Campo but without the 'Campo prices'. A brilliant find!

“Great food - Fun evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by an associate here in Canada. She said to ask for Britta and mention who sent us. We were treated royally and enjoyed a wonderful meal. Britta was very charming and even introduced us to her husband who is the chef. Wonderful dining experience in a beautiful city.

My meal was very good. Great quality, especially for the price. The service was fantastic. I loved that it was homemade and fresh.

“A true Story”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Recommend by a new friend (Ninfa) we met in the tuscanny area, arrived early in the evening. The restaurant was not yet open as they were still having a family supper, yet they welcomed us in introduced us to the family and set a place for the two of us. Poured us a glass of wine and started to prepare us the best meal we have had in all of Italy. While after supper and relaxing as it was still early for any other supper guest to arrive, Britta sat with us and as the conversation went she inquired what country we were from, We said Canada she asked where in Canada, we stated Alberta. Britta said that she had spent some time in Alberta in a small town as an exchange student. Just so happens that it was the same town I grew up in. Small world. The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere and the home made food is top notch. Finishing the great evening off with the tiramisu was just a perfect ending.

“We look forward to returning for a third time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Osteria Enoteca Sotto le Fonti is a cosy, pretension-free restaurant where we could pick from a nice selection of regional and local wine and taste some foods that were well prepared with quality ingredients. We sampled all of the Tuscan wines offered by the glass (all good quality) to accompany our light dinner which included a tasty variety of Sienese meat, pecorino cheese and perfectly grilled vegetables. We liked it so much that we came back the evening after! We enjoyed a bottle of wine and ate the T-bone steak, which was grilled to a perfect rosé and was very flavourful. We ended off the meal with the chocolate sausage and tiramisu, which were both delicious (not too sweet and had a nice balance of flavours and texture to our taste). On top of the nice atmosphere and excellent food, I cannot commend the proprietors enough for their excellent customer service- from their warm welcome, to the chef showing us the steak before cooking it, to taking their time to have a look under the table to help me find my bracelet. We'll be back to taste the rest of the menu!
