“Definitely it is "L´Oro di Siena" (The Gold of Siena)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Nice restaurant, with warm ambient, great service, good food (I love their magnum salad and pomodoro pasta!),and to me, perfect location! Its next to the center but not "in the center" which makes it even better because is not super crowded. Here is where the locals come to eat, so to me, that is the perfect sign to know their food is good. This is a family owned restaurant, and you can taste it on the flavor of the food. They made us feel very welcomed. Thanks Matteo and your family for such a pleasant lunch :-) We´ll come back for sure!.

“Great food doesn't have to be in the Piazza del Campo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This place has great food and great prices. The pasta is house made and amazing, the pizza is pretty good as well. Although it's fun eating in the Campo I haven't found any food that is great. Don't feel the pressure to get your whole meal in the Campo, it's over priced and under-amazing. Treat yourself to a great meal here and then stroll up to the Campo and grab a glass of wine and hang out.

P.S. The food takes a little while, but that's because good things come to those who wait.

“Good service, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This is a family run restaurant a little outside the Siena city walls but well worth the little extra walk. We arrived a little late towards the end of the lunchtime service. However they were very welcoming and friendly and the service was excellent. There were a few tables of local business people i the restaurant which is always a promising sign.
We had been on the search for the perfect caprese salad since arriving in italy and although not on the menu they put one together for my friend and so far it tops the caprese rating for the holiday. The waiter was very helpful when we asked for recommendations giving his suggestions and why hegsve those recommendations and I think everyone enjoyed his recommendation. Few of us had the day's pici special and it was delicious. We also noted it was about half the price of a meal offered from the restaurants on the piazza.
The owner was really friendly and he made feel very welcome in his establishment.
This restaurant is well worth a visit.

“Good food, good service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

Even though it is a small place, you can comfortably eat. It does not look extremely appealing but food and service is good and not terribly expensive.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

We spent three months in Siena earlier this year and ate in many wonderful restaurants. This one was one of our favourite! A family run restaurant with a warm welcome and excellent food. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, you will not be disappointed.
