We had a large group (over 30 people) and showed up unannounced. After a bit of scurrying, they sat part of our group outside and then the other group went inside, upstairs. The host and wait staff were very friendly and accommodating. Service was prompt and efficient. Our tour manager suggested that we try the pasta with wild board -... More

Service is a little erratic and at times a little cocky, but the food was excellent. Local specialities and good quality. Service was in no way bad enough to detract from the dining experience -- just wasn't sincere.

I'm not a rock star. Amadeo and Ronatto just made me feel like I was. We stayed in Siena for 9 days, we ate here 6 of them. By the end of the week we were family, I accidentally had some laundry lost in a laundromat and they contacted the place and mailed me my clothes! Love this place and... More

Rabbit, duck, wild boar cooked perfectly, best service you can expect, fantastic desserts. If I'll be back in Siena, I'll visit this restaurant again. I like to try local cuisine and here was delicious. I did not know what to choose between rabbit and wild boar, but our great waitress suggested half portion of both. I can say just "THANK... More

We had a very good meal here. The outdoor dining is nice but a little crowded in. The server was polite and funny. My husband had a white bean primi that was fabulous. For the secondi he had the homemade sausages and I had a veal dish. Both were very good. I ordered a side of carrots thinking they would... More

The food is great, the service is fab the only issue can be getting a table/ reservation, it seems to go from empty to absolutely packed in a heart beat. We have been going to Siena for 15 years and the consistency has always been there, we keep waiting for it to turn but every year they remind us of... More

Great place, great food, and very friendly service. People who write that the service here is rude here are completely wrong. Place was full [only Italians, apart from me that is!], which usually means the food is good to very good. And it is. Next time I am back in Siena, I will eat here again! Normal prices here btw.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant to us. We were sceptical but it turned out to be a fantastic choice. The service was very good and friendly. Four of us, we had soup as starter, then pasta, tripes and stew veal with bones on for main. The food was superb. Even my Italian brother in law who is a real food... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience here. The waiter gave wonderful recommendations about house specialties. The wine was wonderful. I had minestrone soup and sausage & beans in tomato sauce. My husband had wild boar picci and pheasant. The gluten free cookies were an added bonus, even though I was so stuffed, I greatly enjoyed them! It is clear that this... More
