We savored a fine dining experience at La Taverna di San Giuseppe that will forever be etched in glorious memory. First the cavernous medieval room is so romantic. It was built sometime around 1100 AD. The service was precise, prompt and impeccable. The succulent Tuscan cuisine under the supervision of owners Matteo and Marco, who I believe are celebrity restaurateurs,... More

Amazing fine dining experience! The service was great, our waiter took us through the menu and the specialties that the taverna offers. Delicious food, we had the truffle pasta and beef slices (see pictures). Ask them to show you their wine cellar where they also store cheese!

This is by far our favorite restaurant that we have visited in our many trips to Italy. After purchasing a holiday home in Siena, we make sure to bring our friends and family here for the best dining experience and so far all have agreed it is one of the best dining experiences they have had anywhere! We are working... More

I wanted to make sure that we picked a great restaurant for my birthday meal in Rome. This meal did not disappoint. The atmosphere was perfect, and the service was excellent.

A 7pm and 9:30pm seating is the schedule. We selected (luckily) the 7pm reservation a few days before with our concierge at Grand Hotel Continental (Massimo). It was clearly the best choice for our stay there. The service is impeccable and attentive. The wine was superb. Our meal consisted of lasagna and my husband had the wild boar and both... More

This traditional restaurant located outside the tourist traps in Siena serves local flavours with Michelin-worthy quality. The staff is highly knowedgeable and welcoming, the food is fantastic and the atmosphere vibrant and low-key. The pasta and bruschetta I had was amazing, but what keeps me dreaming about that meal was the dessert - one of the best I've ever had.... More

Restaurant feels like a wine cave. The highlight was Tuscan specialty of wild boar! They even have a statute of a wild boar outside to underscore the importance of this Tuscan dish. Great service, we wanted the truffle pasta and was debating between gnocchi (the house specialty) or tagliolini (the better choice) and our waiter suggested doing half of each... More

We got a lot of recommendations for this restaurant but the dinner and the general experience at the restaurant was disappointing. Specially the main dish and desert was below our expectations. The beef that I had was tasteless and the tiramisu was far to sweet compared to all the delicious tiramisus I have had through our nearly three weeks in... More
