About
From love for the earth and for its extraordinary products born SIENA TRUFFLES, a small but lovely shop of typical products based on truffles, opened right in the heart of Siena, on the corner of Piazza del Campo, the heart of Tuscany's most charming . After 15 years of passion for truffles, carried out in the forests of central Italy in the company of dogs faithful and well trained, we decided to give a home to what for me was a great passion, but which for many was and is always one of the highest peaks of Italian, so famous all over the world thanks to valuable products such as truffles. From the earth to the table in short, to satisfy the most experienced demanding, from fresh product just found (whether trifola or scorzone) to the various sauces made with truffles, creams, all 'truffle oil until the brandy truffle and traditional pasta, also obviously enhanced by truffle. All in the name of "Made in Italy", pursued with determination and conviction as a fundamental value.

    Truffle hunting in Siena
    We came across Alessandro’s shop while walking around Siena and spontaneously decided to book a truffle hunting tour after seeing the photos of his cute dogs looking so happy digging for truffles! Though he was busy in the afternoon and had to leave Siena, he took time out of his schedule to bring us truffle hunting in the morning, which we greatly appreciated. The tour was around 1.5H long and we learnt so much about truffles during that time and even got to harvest some truffles ourselves! We enjoyed running through the woods after the dogs and feeling the excitement once the dogs make a find! We have to follow close behind the dogs to make sure that they don’t eat the truffles as a snack 😆 Moka and Tufo were so skilful in getting the truffles and it was clear that they had strong bonds with their pet parents. After the tour, we got to do a truffle tasting at the shop with Natasha, who was so pleasant and welcoming. Alessandro also kindly recommended some local restaurants for truffles and we checked one of them out for lunch! This tour was the highlight of our trip as we love truffles and animals! We highly recommend this tour with Alessandro and appreciated his warm hospitality during the tour.
    Grazie Nicnomz, I hope to see you again in Siena.

    Memorable experience for a lifetime
    We had such an amazing time with Alessandro and Moka. It was a very informative and memorable experience. Even though the season was almost over we found 16 small truffles, less a snack or two for Moka. Very warm, knowledgeable and friendly gentleman. After hunting we went back to Alessandro’s shop and tried all of the amazing truffle products. Alessandro also had an fantastic selection of wines at his shop which we are very excited to try at home. Overall a great and memorable experience that we will treasure for the rest of our lives.
    Grazie ragazzi , tell your friends about me.

    Wonderful experience
    This was a wonderful experience from start to finish, Alessandro is such a nice guide and just human being. Watching him with his dogs is heartwarming, and of course the hunt itself is very exciting! The location, the timing, is all perfect. And his shop in Siena, where he provides the tasting, provides a great atmosphere to really feel the truffle experience and get some quality products for home. Thank you!
    Grazie Aziza, I hope to see you again in Siena.

    Truffle hunt, tasting and new friends!
    A completely unforgettable experience! Alessandro is a master of his craft. We met at 8:30am and did a 90min truffle hunt, led by his expert dogs Moka and Freddy, they helped us find 15 truffles!!! We then met up with Alessandro at his shop in Siena and tasted the most incredible products and toured the city. If you are a lover of fine foods this is a bucket list type experience. Thank you Alessandro, Moka and Freddy!! Greg, Isabelle and Victor from Montreal :-)
    thank you beautiful family! Alessandro

    Perfect truffle hunting experience
    Truffle hunting was on my bucket list and I'm glad I was lucky enough to go with Alessandro and Moka. The love he has for his dog and job is really more of a passion. A few hours in the forest near the city and we foraged both white and black truffle. I wanted to have an authentic experience and I was not disappointed.

    Muddy and exciting truffle hunting
    What a wonderful time truffle hunting with Alessandro! He picked me up from the Porta Romana and we drove a mere 10 minutes to the property where we took Moka out in search of white truffles. We found way more than I ever anticipated. He’s very knowledgeable about truffles - I loved learning about the growth cycles, how he trains the dogs, among other nuggets of knowledge. After trudging through the forest, he hosted me at his little shop where I had the opportunity to taste several of his products. Obviously it was all delectable! Would recommend this for someone who is looking for a unique experience, willing to run after Moka and get a little muddy.

The truffle hunting and tasting were a great experience. The dogs found a lot of truffles if they not already ate them ;)
Alessandro is a nice guide and tells you a lot about the hunting, the area and of course the truffles. The tasting was a good closure of the trip!

As a family we had our heart set on a Lagotto Romagnolo. We contacted Alessandro mid-C19 and thought we were crazy buying a dog in Italy. But Allesandro made the whole process and experience both enjoyable and easy. He kept us up to date with Rocco's progress regularly through whatsapp and handled all the necesary paperwork and even helped when travel became more complicated. We received Rocco last week and he is the brightest most well behaved 15 week puppy I have come across. Not only did his dogs Moka and Freddie provide us with the most wonderful little bundle but Alessandro even sent along a couple of delicious white truffles. What a wonderful experience.

We ordered a custom gift basket from the store in Siena Italy. I corresponded directly with the store owner, Alessandro, who helped me craft the perfect gift basket. He was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable. The quality of their products are outstanding, and the presentation is fabulous! They also deliver 3 day to United States.

Fabulous time with Alessandro, Freddie and Moka hunting for truffles. A good amount were found and our kids had a great time. Highly recommend if you are planning time in Siena and looking for a activity to enjoy as a family. The tasting back at the Campo square was planned well and great way to go into the afternoon.

Our group of 4 spent the morning with Alessandro and his dogs Mika and Pepita, hunting truffles just outside of Siena. We were in a group of about 10 people and loved watching the dogs oh the hunt. Found a lot of black truffles as that season was just beginning to wind down and found on white truffle as the white truffle season was just beginning. After the hunt, we went back to their shop off of Piazza del Campo for some truffle tasting and some wine. All in all, a great way to a different side of Tuscany.
