Another great meal in Tuscany. The menu was handwritten, with no English translation. All our pastas were delicious. I enjoyed the pici (local pasta) in garlic and tomato sauce. Also we enjoyed the taglialoni with white truffles. The restaurant had gluten free pasta options, and...More

Not so sure why some reviewers think every restaurant should flip their wigs. To us, Osteria del Gatto provided tasty, nourishing food on a cold afternoon. If it’s white tablecloths and candlelight you seek, this isn’t your place. If a good meal is your hankering,...More

Suggested by our villa owner who made our reservation for us - wanted to love it - so cute and cozy and, clearly, family owned. eh. The house wine was not great and the pastas were executed with a heavy hand. I had some kind...More

The food was terrible (pici pasta with racu sauce), the white wine was not so drinkable (it was from their selection, not table wine), the bread brought at the beginning was very dry and seemed old. 2 stars for serving and atmosphere.

Second night in Sienna and having a great time. Good food, good value, mediocre service. Not enough attention from waiter and we waited forever to get the bill. Waitress was efficient but had zero personality

I suspect the owners don't seek publicity, the whole tone of this modest restaurant is authenticity with original, local food on a brief menu. The best meal we had in Siena

This was recommended by our hotel. The menu is small with just daily specials to choose from but everything we had was obviously freshly made and delicious. Reservations are a must as there are only 8 or so tables. We would definitely go back.

Upon reading great reviews by Ric Steves, my family and I attempted to eat lunch here, but were summarily refused seating. We patiently waited just inside and were finally addressed by the staff. While waiting, several locals walked right by us into the restaurant with...More
