Our group of 3 couples celebrated my husbands birthday here tho it was a surprise. We had not mentioned it but after a fantastic dinner we all ordered desert and soon all the lights went out, flashing colored Lights and booming music poured from the back of the restaurant and the the entire wait staff including cooks were marching and...

Never tasted such a gnocchi or wild boar! Sensational! The quail egg appetizer was very nice as well! The staff was fun, professional and passionate! The setting in an old basement makes it even better. Cannot recommend enough!

It doesn't get better than this. San Giuseppe is the best restaurant in Siena and perhaps anywhere. Somehow they have consistently mastered how to deliver amazing food, friendly but non-intrusive service and make every table feel special. We went for lunch and dinner this trip. We were allowed to sample dishes we didn't end up ordering but were highly recommended,... More

An amazing evening with my family....6 years after my wife and I had one of our best evenings ever here. It always risky to go back to great memories and try to repeat but tonight didn't disappoint. Great service in a friendly relaxed way and brilliant food, and great recommendations for wine....

Delightful setting in Siena with possibly the best dinner we had whilst there. The gnocchetti was a recommendation and we weren't disappointed. It melted in the mouth. The service was attentive and timely. Lost in the wine list personally the waiter made some excellent suggestions of good local reasonably priced wines.

The restaurant was packed when we got there 9.30pm on a Tuesday night. We really wanted to have some good truffles so asked to wait till a table got available. We were told the kitchen was closing at 10pm but we were welcome to have a look as the menu and order before we got our table. They offered us... More

My husband and I were in Siena for a day and decided to drop by San Giuseppe to see if it was possible to get a reservation for that evening. We were able to get a table without any problem.

A simple but beautiful setting of stucco over vaulted brick walls. Very friendly welcome and helpful staff amply skilled in English. Good sized menu and solid regional wine list. Tuscan-style chicken livers simmered for four hours were rich and savory. Beautifully prepared and tasty pastas. A pretty cava available for tastings and events.

We ate lunch here while busting Siena for the Palio. This was our favorite meal of the trip and a must do! The service was outstanding and friendly. They had several truffle dishes for first course that were amazing and their ragu also really tasty. They have an extensive wine list and are willing to provide recommendations. The wine list...
