All reviews will confirm that this is a great place to eat in Siena. Three things make it a great deal:
1) Great service. Everyone in that place (maybe except for the host lady) made us felt like at home.
2) Food. Everything we ordered was delicious.
3) Cost - Benefit. It is definitely not a cheap place, but prices are completely fare for the great dinner we had.

NOTE: you must book to find a place there. We went during lunch time and had to come back for dinner after making a reservation.

Enjoy!

We secured a reservation a couple of months in advance and it was most definitely worth it. The food was delicious, the wine selection superb and the service flawless. Thank you to the staff for making this the best dinner we enjoyed in Siena.

This restaurant is worth its high rating. We were a group of 9 adults and 5 kids, which can be a problem to find a seating for. The staff was very helpful and patient. Thanks for that! All our primi were very good, some exeptional. It is worth to pay extra for pasta with truffles. Fiorentina as a secondi, were a great choice! This T bone steak is bought dry aged for 25 days and restaurant has it another 14 days waiting for to be eaten and it REALLY is perfect piece of meat. Raw in the middle, juicy and soft. This was for sure one of the best we had. We would return, no doubt.

Based upon the unreserved high recommendation of a server at another restaurant in Siena, we found our way over to Taverna di San Giuseppe - a little off the beaten path, behind the Piazza del Campo - for lunch.
We took the server's advice on all dishes: the chicken livers stewed in wine, the pici with wild boar sauce and the lightest gnocchi I have ever had. All dishes were spectacular. For desert, the house-made tiramisu should not be missed. It was not like any tiramisu you will ever have tasted.
The service was prompt, professional and gracious and the personnel were very welcoming.
The tab was incredibly reasonable.

For sure the best restaurant in Siena and one of the best food you can have in Italy. We have been there for Easter lunch, so the restaurant was full and very busy. It didn't seem to be a problem. Service was perfect and food even better. We went there with the idea to have a "fiorentina" (beef sirloin steak). Well it was great. Very well cooked and probably the best meat you can have.
Call in advance. It worth it.
