This restaurant came highly recommended and it certainly has excellent TripAdvisor reviews. While the food was good, we were underwhelmed. Perhaps our expectations were too high. Lord knows there are plenty of other choices in Siena.

We had a lovely evening! Friendly and helpful staff. We loved the food, wine and atmosphere. You can order beef of 1kg. The meat was really good. We also tried the risotto which was good. The wines were also very tasty. Thanks a lot! Hope...to come back someday. A reservation is recommended.More

We went here for dinner and We got the Pici pasta which is local to Siena. The noodles were cooked to perfection, the boar ragu was not to greasy and packed full of flavor. Its better to make a reservation if your party has 4...or higher as it gets busy quick. Highly recommend coming to eat here.More

Sat outside in pedestrian area just close to the Porta Romana. Menu is more inventive than most but sticks to good local ingredients. The staff were very friendly. We had a dog which was not an issue. I would go back.

Went for a super late dinner. I wasn’t feeling well so had spinach (which were nice), but husband had pinci in pork sauce and he loved it.

We enjoyed a beautiful sunny day in Siena, went shopping and at lunch time decided to stop at this Restaurant. It is right next to a gorgeous Church, it feels like Rome in some kind of way. Rating outside is so nice and in the...evening must be so romantic. The food was delicious! The pici with ragù is a must, it’s jaw dropping!!! The best I’ve had in years. The meat here is really at a high level! I decide to have la tagliata which was really high quality and amazing meat. It was melting in my mouth! My mom had medaglioni which she ate so fast I had no time to take a photo of them! She really loved it. Next time I would only change the dessert and choose the chocolate one! We had a delicious lunch! That kind of meal that makes you be in peace with the universe!More
