Really, what can one say after so many have given so much praise other than to testify that they are right!
We went back the next night, that's how much we enjoyed it. Atmospheric setting, excellent service, and oh, the food!
As with any place this popular, don't neglect making reservations!

The staff at Taverna went out of their way to make our dinner a terrific experience. We had a bit of a mixup with a reservation but Lucas took care of rescheduling us and even called early to say a table had opened up. From the intro presentation with the vegetable soup all the way through the tiramisu with the sweet wine from somewhere off the coast of Italy near Africa, everyone at Taverna made our night special. Very fun grotto feeling-also makes acoustics great and filled with chatter of happy diners. We ordered the mixed grill-fabulous, especially Tuscan sausage and also ordered wild boar which was very nicely done. Well worth the walk from il campo- if you arrive up the hill early , continue through arch to the university just beyond. Extraordinary views of the Tuscan landscape at dusk!

Recommended by landlady. Also the only restaurant on the road we went to which would give us a table at 7pm on a Sat evening, though they explained that it was booked from eight. Every other place was "fully booked" even though most were nearly empty, and still had lots of space when we passed them again later. Obviously there is something about Sat night in Siena. No problems on other days.
The staff had little English, we had little Italian but we all muddled through cheerfully and got a good meal at a very good rate. Nice wine. Patronised by lots of locals all clearly enjoying the convivial atmosphere.

This restaurant is a little off the main square so it's less touristy and more delicious! The inside feels almost like a wine cellar and the staff is great. We ordered wine from a vineyard we went to and an appetizer of quail egg and polenta. For our primi we had ghnocceti with truffles and it was fantastic! We were full after that, but the seconds and desserts around us looked fantastic too! Amazing place!
