We ordered two starters, the cheese and jams and the melon and shrimp, both were every good. However two out of three main entrees were salty. The service was good and staff friendly.

This is a very casual restaurant. It seems like a lot of locals go there. I went for dinner with my husband and we really enjoyed it. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. We asked for a bottle of local white wine and he recommended Vernaccia Di Dan Gimignano, an organic white. We liked it because it suited our... More

Food was excellent, wine was amazing for 10 Euros. But we were tired and it took a while until we got their attention to get a bill. We were sitting along in a second room so there wasn't much of an atmosphere.

We stumbled upon this place for lunch as it is not on the main streets, but on a side alley uphill. The decor is very attractive and we were seated immediately, even though they had not opened yet.

Great food. Had some amazing chicken pate with truffles, pasta with cheese fondue and truffles and Italienisches style steak. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff with good humor. Very good value for money. Will come back for sure.

We were heading to a nearby restaurant for lunch which wasn't open yet so stumbled upon this little gem of a restaurant! What a lucky find! My husband and I shared the chicken liver pate (which was melt in your mouth material) with finely sliced crisp toasts, prawn and melon salad and a mixed salad. I couldn't recommend more highly...

We visited Siena on our trip and tour around in Tuscany. Magically and very beautiful city and this restaurant was authentic and good! Incredibly friendly service! The restaurant is located near the "Orto Botanica" and Piazza del Conte.
