Our first time in Siena, and we got a chance to have dinner at the restaurant Tar Tufo with the most amazing view to the city from their terrace. It was like a fairytale! We were not very hungry so we didn’t choose the degustation...menu and then regretted it, cause every dish we ordered was absolutely delicious! Also their wines were fantastic and we even learned a thing or two about the acidity of young San Giovese vines. It simply needs 20-30 minutes breathing time. So go for Chianti! Special thanks to our waitress Ilenia, who impressed us with her knowledge, professionalism and kindness. We are glad to have discovered this jewel!More
We had a really nice dinner at Tar-Tufo. Staff were very attentive. Lovely wine and dessert. We opted for the truffle tasting menu which was delicious. However, we felt that truffle wasn’t at the heart of the each of the courses and instead just shaved...on top which isn’t quite what we expected. Otherwise great place for fine dining.More
It was recommended to us by the manager (Jimmy) at our hotel (Villa Elda).
It's located in old town and is just an amazing looking place from the outside.
Inside it's very atmospheric.
The staff were very friendly and informative.
They made recommendations based on...individual tastes, allergies, price.
The food was incredible.
We had three courses of fine dining.
It was the combination of fine ingredients, innovative yet traditional techniques, great staff and an incredible atmosphere.
They also have an amazing wine list.More

After three excellent dinners in this amazing venue, I can say, without a single doubt, that this is the best restaurant of Siena. By far.
Tastes blend together in a way hard to explain with written words; the kitchen staff know-how perfectly deploys on the...presentation of the dishes, the ingredients genuineness and the wine matching.
Beautiful venue and amazing wine cellar make this place a unique spot hidden in a less busy area of Siena.
Totally recommended for a romantic appointment or a dinner with friends, too.
Will go back soon for sure!More

The food and the service were very good - better than anything we experienced in Florence or Venice. If we weren't staying at the attached hotel - Villa del Sole, we probably would have overlooked this restaurant since it's away from the Piazza del Campo...but it's definitely worth the short walk from the center to get here.More

Thank you so much for your review and for time. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time at the restaurant and we hope to see you very soon.
Thank you for the beautiful words.
Kind regards , hugs from all the staff.
The restaurant is attached to a boutique hotel. They put a lot of effort into the presentation of their dishes but the tastes disappoint. Read the menu carefully - half of choices are marked with an asterisk which means that the main ingredient has been...deep-frozen. Truffle courses are listed exclusive of the price of truffle, so they will end up costing almost the double of the listed price. They use the regular spaghetti, not the thick, fat variety, for their 'pici al ragú' and the ragu was too oily to be enjoyable. Lamb chops were perfectly cooked but, again, the crust was too greasy. The staff appeared overworked and unhappy.More
