My girlfriend and I first ate here back in May 2016 and ended up going two nights in a row. It's that great. I'm so happy to write that after our third visit on Saturday 14 September, the place is even better than we remembered. We booked in advance and Lorella informed us we could only be seated at 21:15. Fine with us. It's a very popular spot. The food is absolutely perfect, but what steals the show is how much ALL the staff care. Every single waiter treats you like you're their first (and favourite) customer of the night. The same as the locals. You simply don't get this kind of service anywhere else. They're happy to answer questions and help you out. Can't recommend enough. Book in advance!

We watched an episode of Rick Steve's in Siena, and this restaurant stood out, so we made a dinner reservation to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. What a great decision. The atmosphere is authentic Italian, staff is attentive and fantastic, and the food is incredible. This is a don't miss experience while in Siena. At the end of dinner, the lights dimmed, music started, and the staff came out with special drinks and dessert to celebrate our special day. . It was a moment that we will never forget, thank you, we will be back!

Tip: make sure to make reservations, they sell out sittings quickly.

From the beautiful surroundings to the delicious food, everything about this place is amazing.
Attentive and knowledgeable wait staff, that don't detract from the friendly family feeling of the osteria.
The soft fresh bread, smooth rich wine, indulgent desserts. Definitely get the tiramisu, even if you have to share it, though after one bite you won't want to!

Vegetarians shouldn't be put off by such a meat heavy menu, often veggie options fall by the wayside, however tavern San Giuseppe break that trend. Though limited they are amazing.

Best pasta I've ever eaten. The chef knows his work.

I agree with the previous three reviews. The food was excellent (with adequate portions), the service was pleasant and efficient and the ambiance and environment were very comfortable. It is an elegant tavern setting. I would recommend it.

Every once in a great while you come to the perfect place. This is it. The food is so divine, the service so impeccable and the owners so friendly you know instantly you'll keep coming back for the rest of your life. The little touches, the feeling that you're not just another check, the dishes that make you close your eyes and thank the heavens you came. These are the things that you remember. Just go. Just don't take our table when we come back next year!
