The restaurant is really a hidden gem. It is outside of the region where regular tourists would look for a restaurant. We got there due to a friends recommendation. Whem we got there we were overwhelmed by the ambience, really charming with a touch of Toscana. The food was really good and although pricy is really worth. Would definitely go... More

Dinner last night was wonderful. The food was bursting with flavor as was the wine. I highly recommend the lasagna and the Steak simmered in a Brunella wine. For dessert try the meringue with ice cream and berries or the tiramisu. Both were incredible. Better call for a reservation in advance or you may not find it possible to dine... More

We ate here 2 nights out of a two week stay in Italy because it was the best. My favorite dish was the polenta with mushrooms and pate. It was unbelievably good. The staff were all so helpful and friendly. Check out the wine room that was excavated, its a step back in time.

Had an absolutely wonderful meal here. Food was out-of-this-world and the service everything that you would wish for. We booked very last minute -- we had out hotel call -- and could only get seats at a "communal table". This turned out to be completely fine -- the way the table was arranged it was only slightly different from having... More

Visited at the end of October. We were lucky to get the last booking available for our final evening in Sienna the evening before so highly recommend that you book in advance. The waiters were very helpful with the menu and wine selection- nothing was too much. On their suggestion, I went with the wild boar dish which was delicious.... More

We ate here our second night in Siena and were very glad that we did. It was one of our best meals in Italy. We started with the prosciutto and melon, then we shared a pasta and also the chicken main course finished off with Tiramisu. All of it was very tasty and we paired it with a really nice... More

My wife and I were in Siena for just a few days this week. We were fortunate to find San Giuseppe's. Molte bene dining indeed!! We were compelled to dine there twice during our stay, if that says anything. It's one of our great joys to let the servers guide us in new places and that only works where the... More

We stayed a week in Siena in October and booked this restaurant 6 months in advance based on the reviews here on Trip Advisor. Three of the four diners were disappointed with their entree. The restaurant is quaint and visually appealing. The staff was attentive but our three veal dishes were certainly not up to par. Two of us had... More

Went here on the recommendation of our hotel staff. And it was definitely worth it! On the more expensive side as places go in Sienna and the service and food matches expectations. Better value than one of the ristorantes in the piazza. The staff have penash and look after you very well. You can reserve this place for a special... More
