This was a fun place to eat. It is a charming little hole in the wall with a few tables inside and a few tables outside underneath some arched architecture. We sat outside. The atmosphere was very informal, casual and relaxed. The man that waited...More

This is a very small yet cozy restaurant to enjoy some local food. No menus, you can mix the displayed ham, cheese and vegetable in one plate. The food tastes good in general, but the portion of one plate is quite small.

a few slanting tables and a mixed starters plate to die for. the sausages and pomodoro taste incredibly fresh and intense, the parmesano cheese melts in your mouth. it's simple, but all ingredients are fresh and high quality. excellent!

Absolutely amazing!!! My favorite place to eat in Siena! This simple genuine Italian food! I love that there was no menu and it was whatever was fresh on the day. Highly recommended and very adorable.

We stopped there for lunch. The staff is prompt and kind. We were seated outside in the shade (under a vault) and it was just right. We had one pasta dish and one variety of appetizers. Good stuff. Portions were huge. They do not accept...More

Came here for an early lunch. No menu. Basically we pointed out what we wanted and they put it on our plates. Total cost for 2: 17 Euros. Pretty good value. As for the food, we both thought the pasta salad was nothing special. The...More

We had a big lunch so we weren't very hungry upon arriving at this ristorante. However we had the pesto pasta and the mixed plate and were sufficiently sated. My son thoroughly enjoyed the meat and cheese plate, which seemed to be offered at each...More

Hi again, i was there yesterday, reservation is possible only for dinner, for lunch not. There are quite a few tables, so you shouldn't have problem to either get one or wait for a 15 minutes. Btw food is still good :)
