We had a half day trip in Siena and wanted to have a good local lunch. The locals pointed up the mountain and here we were. You have to walk it to earn it.The place was converted out of an ancient wine cellar and you can see the owner has put a lot of thoughts into preserving the existing elements... More

We spent one week in Siena and we decided to taste a different restaurant for each dinner. Osteria Castelvecchio is our best experience. Number one. For the quality of the food, for the quality of the service, for the quality of the environment and for the price. Next to the quality, it is one of the rare restaurant in Siena... More

Eight of us had a great table for dinner on the street which gave us lots of opportunity to people watch. The service we received was excellent and the food was down home and delicious. Osteria was quick to accommodate and welcome our group where the restaurant next door blew us off. We're glad they did.

This restaurant is located near the piazza il campo, quite in a hidden place ! We arrived a bit early, but the waiters let us in, choose a table and check the menu before opening. The staff also took time to explain the different dishes. We shared an antipasti (Mozzarella di Buffala, maybe not the best I ever had, but... More

- Great food & quick service - A little off the main "tourist tracks" and thus relaxed and without the usually annoying attitude of the restaurants on the Campo - Interior it bit to "cool"/sterile and modern for our taste, especially because the beautiful walls would have offered the chance to create a warmer atmosphere

We recently spent 9 amazing days in the magnificent city of Siena. Timed our trip to coincide with the Palio and stayed in an outstanding apartment in the Pantera contrada. Having read positive reviews here for Osteria di Castelvecchio we went there with friends one night for dinner. We all enjoyed, not only the food but the extremely attentive service... More

Restaurant is in a small street, slightly uphill, off the Via San Pietro. Inside it is quite modern looking, even though the setting is very old. It is airconditioned. Menu was quite extensive and prices were reasonable. Antipasti Euro8 - 10. Primi (mostly pasta) Euro7 - 14. Mains (included meat and fish) were Euro15-17. The vegetarian dishes were priced from...

The restaurant is on top of a little alley, you see it in the turn of the alley, while walking a bigger road. You enter a stone cave, nicely carved and finished with wood. The interior design is so unique and creative, you wish you had more eyes to see it all, and the detail work. The lovely host, who... More

We went with two families and all shared food. Most of the food was very good. One dish, the black pasta, was definitely under seasoned. The service was very good, probably more attentive than anywhere we eaten in Italy so far.
