We visited the Fori Porta while staying at a nearby hotel. Good food (try the pici pasta) and the cougette rolls with mozzarella) and very reasonable local wines. Highly recommended.

The staff greets you at the door with a warm and friendly smile. The restaurant is clean and comfortable. The menu is in both English and Italian. There are just enough dishes to choose from. All of our food was good, not exceptional. It is a good basic Italian trattoria.

We stopped here for lunch our first day in Sienna because we were very hungry and it was right across the street from our hotel. The menu outside really impressed us, but because it was lunch they were working from a different menu. We decided as soon as the meal was finished that we would come back another night. The...

I just had to have this dish, if only for the name. Although only a starter, it was enough to satisfy me. Stuffed with minced meat and spices, this was a delicious meal. The other half had a pork dish, which was also tasty, judging by the clean plate. The family run small restaurant, only a few hundred metres from... More

This was near our hotel and had great food served by the owner. Very authentic meal with pasta and meat dishes. Good wine list for such a small place.

I've been to this place a few times over the years, and have never been impressed but neither have I been particularly disappointed. It is located maybe 5 min walking outside of Porta Romana, in a residential area. It's fairly popular and appreciated by the locals. Design of the place is fairly standard, with some charming details if you're into... More

Just across the road from our hotel, the Hotel Palazzo di Valli, we enjoyed one evening meal at this pleasant restaurant. It was busy, even though this was mid-week and early spring. They willingly organized a table for us and we had a most tasteful dinner. Service was helpful and friendly. We found that this restaurant offered much higher value... More

Staying at the Palazzo di Valli and was recommended this by our friendly concierge for dinner. He said something along the lines of authentic non-Touristy Italian food and we were sold. The place was run by an old Italian man and woman. Seems to be family-run. The menu is very health- and allergy- conscious. Chef's surprise: pork carpaccio. Tasted like... More

Excellent place slightly outside Siena (Porta Romana), probably not too many people know about it due to the location but try the peposo and the pork stuffed cabbage!
