“Small gem in Siena”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Le sorelline was recommended by our b and b manager, and it did not disappoint. Away from the touristy crowds near El Campo and the Duomo, you can choose from a display case for take out or eat in. BUT, they also have a restaurant, where we had a great, reasonable lunch off a varied menu. Fresh produce is the key and their daily specials reflect what the market offered that day, for our day, it was mushrooms. One of us ordered, the pici with mushrooms, delicious, loaded with mushrooms in a broth that was seasoned very well. We also had the non-special pici (thick spaghetti noodle) with tomato, sausage, and basil. Not big hunks of sausage but infused in the sauce and perfect for a hearty lunch in preparatoon for all the walking one does in Siena. The server could not have been more pleasant or helpful. Pretty generous glass of house wine was a nice complement. We'll no doubt return here before our stay is over.

“a small gem in Siena”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Last night I enjoyed a great meal in this small gem of restaurant.They have a great list of Tuscan
specialties including funghi and truffle pastas that are exceptionally well done. They also do the tuscan steak in some very interesting and delicious versions including one with balsamic and radicchio that was fantastic! Good wine selections that are also inexpensive and great deserts. It is small and reservations would be advisable as the locals have discovered this gem.

“Interesting experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2011

This is a new restaurant in the center of Siena. Marco Frambati, "the chef" prepares interesting dishes based on traditional cuisine of Siena. Excellent homemade pici with meat sauce, very good grilled sausage, good choice of cold cuts, deliciuos cheeses and tuscan wines. Comfortable and fast service.
