Good place to have a typical food a la Siena. Located at a small piazza close the Il Campo and the city hall. Great service and good traditional food.

We ate here in July. The place was crowded but we didn't have to wait long for a table. Staff were very polite and helpful. Food was delicious. Great atmosphere here.

This restaurant is a bit out of the main hub of historic Sienna but we loved it. Great service by a waiter who spoke good English and for the price it is hard to beat, especially when comparing the prices on some of the other...More
