“Amazing ragu & meat dish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Had the set meal of the day. It was ragu and the beef in porcini sauce... mmmmm.. aaah! Was really good. Good deal for 18e as well. The ambiance was very nice, and very friendly staff. Very nice experience overall. Highly recommended.

“Decent cuisine near Duomo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

We only went here after the #2 rated restaurant told us it was fully booked for the evening. The decor here is decent and the service very good. Food was ok - I expected better. I had the percino cheese on toast starter which was rather bland. For the mains, I had the Pici with tomato, chilli and garlic. It was quite good. My wife had the Tuscan soup - which was more like a bland casserole. She wasn't able to finish it.

Overall an ok place for grub and not too pricey either.

“Great Food, Near Duomo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Great little restaurant near Il Duomo of Siena. We went based on their Trip Advisor rating. The service was good and the prices reasonable. We had the following:
1. Don't remember the name, but it was a cheese like custard with balsamic reduction. It was delicious.
2. Pasta with Boar Ragout - Very good.
3. Main Course - Encontre with oil and spices - Also very good

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Siena

“Pleasant and recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

It's situated very near the Duomo. Since we got in the Osteria, we were well greeted and taken care of by the owner of the place Emanuele. My friend went for the "Menu del Giorno", and I went for a "Tagliata con rucola e grana". Dishes were very well cooked, portions were good and prices were honest. We got some house wine as well and some simple but well made pasta.
Environment was comfortable and truly Italian. Many of the guests were local.
A place I definitely recommend if you visit Siena.
