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.

Ordered a custom gift basket from the store in Siena Italy
Dec 2020
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.

Rocco Son of Moka and Freddoe
Nov 2020
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.

A wonderful experience
Aug 2020 • Couples
We thoroughly enjoyed our morning with Alessandro and his dog Freddie. We travelled to a hilly area south of Siena and walked through old olive groves & woods. The dog was brilliant at finding the truffles whether large or small. Alessandro explains about the different types of truffle & the signs that you look for to find them. Freddie was just a puppy but was extremely well trained & obviously enjoyed the hunting. Afterwards we went to the truffle shop in a small alley off the
Piazza del Campo and tried some different sauces with a drink. The trip was good value and was definitely a highlight of our holiday. If you are staying in Siena make sure you book Alessandro & go truffle hunting it is a memorable experience.

Great experience
Aug 2020 • Couples
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!

Fun truffle hunting with Alessandro and Freddy
Aug 2020
We had a fantastic truffle hunt with Alessandro and Freddy, the truffle dog. Besides learning a lot about truffles, truffle dogs and the hunt, Alessandro gave us a lot of insights around the area, events and places to see - most importantly he shared his recipe for pasta with black truffles (we tried it out, it was delicious). And while we learned that Freddy was still pretty young and as such could still be considered an "apprentice", he did a fantastic job in finding lots of truffles. Don't miss out to visit Alessandro in his little shop at Piazza Del Campo in Siena to try and buy some of the delicacies made with truffles such as pecorino cheese or aceto.
All in all a wonderful experience

I spent a wonderful morning with Alessandro and Moka, along with my dog Lucky. I learned everything there is to know about truffle and Moka found two of them although it was the end of the season for truffles. A wonderful place experience to discover nature during an activity!

Want to see how they hunt truffles?
Sep 2019
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.

Amazing experience!
Sep 2019 • Couples
We booked this truffle tasting experience on AirBnB - and it’s safe to say that it did not disappoint. Alessandro was warm and friendly and made us feel at home right away - we were given a variety of drinks options including very nice red wine. Something that really stood out was how knowledgeable and passionate Alessandro was about his trade - answering all of our questions in great detail. There were four rounds of truffle products - all of which were delicious. We bought plenty of products to take home with us!

We will definitely return next time we are in Siena. Thank you Alessandro!

Truffle tasting experience
Aug 2019 • Couples
My husband and I signed up for the truffle tasting experience. We weren't sure what to expect but we're completely blown away. We tasted so many different products that were delicious and learnt so much about different types of truffles and how they are found. Highly recommend this experience!
