Bino, the manager and staff are very responsive, the food is prepared perfectly, rosemary pork chop is outstanding, the wines are reasonably priced and the location is excellent.

We loved this place so much we went back two more times. The wait staff were top notch, the surroundings comfortable and the food incredibly good too. We saw other people we recognized from a previous visit so we weren't the only ones impressed. Hats off to Elia, Brenda and Sandro. If you get a chance - go there.

We visited Il Locale Di Guido with my wife and daughter for dinner on a nice summer night. The backyard was open, but it's the quality of the food that was the astounding element. We had tagliatelle al tartufo, filetto alla griglia and tagliata ai funghi porcini and the red house wine. Everything was great and we will definitely visit... More

The owners of the Santa Caterina B&B we were staying at suggested this restaurant for our first lunch in Asciano. Service was kind, fast and the waitress made appropriate suggestions. Food was tasty, typical and nicely presented. We had Antipasto di Salumi di Cinta Senese, Antipasto Toscano, Misto di Pecorino Toscano con Miele e Noci, Pici al Ragù, Pici Cacio... More

I can not understand how this place got any positive reviews. First and foremost, the food is bad. The Guido antipasta starter has canned artichokes and a selection of fatty tasteless salami. The gnocchi plate was served in a sauce that resembled cheese wiz. It was truly awful. The restaurant is far from Siena city and definitely not worth the... More

Mr. X or Mrs. X, I can not understand why you came here for??? Since you got into our restaurant your attitude was rude and aggressive, not even a smile or a greet. You were asked by our waitress what you liked to eat and you just ordered and did not ask her for any explanations about the dishes. Anyway,... More

I was there during my visit in Italy on November 2014. Some local friends invited me for dinner and the experience and quality of food great. When we stepped in Guido welcomed us telling to Spiro that his friends will go back to the USA very Happy......he was right. Will be too long to describe the salami and the wild... More

A modest looking tavern opposite the church of Taverne d'Arbia, the Locanda di Guido, is a last outpost of Sienese refinement on the road to Arezzo or Asciano and the Crete Senesi steppes. The quality of everything is superb: the Chianina beef and the Cinta Senese pork (from the outstanding local butcher), the House Red (from Montepulciano), the coffee, the... More
