“Tasty dishes, good find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

A bit hidden from the main street and modern decor but the dishes were tasty. Pici were really good and I loved my dessert, chocolate souffle with pears. Relaxed atmosphere and cordial service, looked like it was recently renovated.

“Very pleasant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Ate lunch here today just before leaving Siena to fly home. The meal was so good that we did not eat any more today! The stewed beef was super, though very rich. The polenta mushroom starter was very nice. service good, surroundings very pleasant and a good atmosphere. I recommend this place

“pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Food was excellent; we went back again a few nights later to try other menu items. Probably the best food I had in Siena, and at a very reasonable price. They also had good wines by the glass.

Atmosphere was pleasant, and the building interior has been elegantly remodelled (recently, I suspect).

The service was friendly and helpful.

It's a bit off the tourist track, and is a few minutes walk from the Campo. But it's well worth it, as it lacks the frenzy of the central area and makes for a more relaxed atmosphere.

“even on a budget, no disappointment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

It really is very easy to settle down into one of the tourist-targeted trattorias with their 10-12 euro price tags but go a little way off the beaten track and the result is a brilliant restaurant with good food, delightful service and most importantly...will not even come close to breaking the bank.

Being a student finding myself more than often irritated by the lack of great restaurants such as this one, I felt compelled to write about it and share the experience! First off, the decor is really great; slick interior with a coolly chosen colour scheme to revive after walking around in the heat! The menu did not feature a million dishes which already gave an indication of the quality expected...our table chose between (as a primi for lunch) "gnochetti with vegetables" and "pear and gorgonzola sauce with ravioli". For a total of 7 euros per dish, it was fantastic food and more than enough for a filling lunch without stretching to the next, slightly heavier, course.

All in all, it is definitely worth walking just that little bit further to have a really great meal in a brilliant city.
