I loved, loved, loved this restaurant. The food was exquisite. I had the quail eggs with truffle shavings followed by the steak with truffle shavings (hey, it's truffle season!).. Wow, both dishes were brilliant. Simple in concept but delivered with real know-how. The meal was...More

Friendly atmosphere, good wine selection and great recommendation from the hostess. This resto has high ratings - in my opinion because it is an "honest" place with home-style cooking at a good price. I recommend it, but if you are looking for a refined dining...More

A lovely intimate family run restaurant just outside the walls of Siena. We enjoyed some of the local recipes which were beautifully cooked. The restaurant filled up with local people while we were there which we felt was another good indication of its quality.

After reading about this restaurant on trip advisor, we decided to make our way out of the absolute centre of Siena (it is only a short walk, and definitely worth it). For those who are too tired to walk more than the absolute minimum, the...More

This restaurant is a little outside of town, but worth the walk to find, because it was the best meal we had in Italy! The dining room is very cozy, and the owners are very welcoming, it feels like you've gone to a friends house...More

We ate a really good dinner during our stay in Siena. The service was excellent despite the lady of the house was alone and the restaurant was full. Bruscetta and chicken liver with a taste of caprese served on bread for aperitivi, pasta for primiti...More
