We visited cosy and pleasant La Taverna del Capitano in the center of historical city of Siena. This restaurant is situated on the short walking distance from the famous Piazza Duomo. It is opened in convenient time and attracts us by its home made pasta, bread and wine. But all our positive mood from the restaurant has gone at the... More

Very typical Sienna inn. Food is excellent. Environment is also typical from Siena, the walls are covered with pictures of the Palio and the local Contrada. Service is great, that evening the inn was full though the owner managed to get a table for us.

Lovely local taverna serves great local food with rustic casual feel. Shared family tables and entertaining waiters add to atmosphere. Food and wine recs by the staff were great....had a great lasagne that was so soft fluffy and full of flavour. Washed down with local chianti. Just down from the Duomo But at reasonable prices.

This is a great little restaurant near the Duomo. The food was great, prices fair and less touristy than piazza campo. The staff was super helpful with our non-italien speaking ability. Always nice with a restaurant with a clean and accessible toilet.

We were here with a group and one ordered veal, which was served too rare for the person's taste. When she asked that it be done a little more, the chef/owner came out to "explain" that rare was the way they served it in Sienna. Despite repeated pleas to just do it a bit more, the world's most arrogant chef... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We went for lunch on our second day in Siena. The food was inexpensive. However it was really mediocre. I had a mixed salad and they only brought olive oil (not good extra virgin but a bland variety) and no balsamic vinegar. My husband had the risotto and it was bland. The bread... More

Four of us have been traveling around Tuscany, sharing the many Tuscan restaurant delights-- ordering four/five separate plates and sharing them so that we all get to taste everything. For six nights, we have not had a problem with any restaurant from Florence to Sienna. On our last night in Sienna, our hotel bellhop recommended this restaurant so we took... More

We enjoyed the pleasant atmosphere together with the genuine local dishes like the Ribollita. The house's wine, a local Chianti, was really good and for 12 Euro a liter.
