We discovered this restaurant through our hotel concierge since we were so hungry and we just wanted to head into the closest one from our hotel. Upon entering, one would think that this is just one among the many restaurants in Siena serving typical Italian cuisine. In the end, we were proven wrong since the food was absolutely delicious and done to perfection. The caprese salad and pasta pomodoro were out of this world. So good! We ended up eating here during 95 percent of our meals in Siena and we were there for 4 nights! Stefano is a wonderful man and owner and his 30 year old son is a fantastic cook. Last but not the least, the Brunello wines he has on stock are delicious and perfectly complement the meals you will have. We miss the food already.

This was a tricky restaurant to review. The food was really high quality. The entrees were just divine, I had the baked fig wrapped in smoky bacon and stuffed with ricotta, my wife the rolled and stuffed courgette. Secondi's were just as good. The wine list had been poorly maintained with many wines no longer available and those that were we're relatively expensive. Ironically, the house wines were cheap and good. The husband and wife team who run the restaurant were a bit quirky. For all it's idiosyncrasies we enjoyed this restaurant and ate here both our nights in Siena!

Right across the street from our hotel in Siena...wonderful food! The onion appetizer was to die for, and the pici pasta dish was out of this world. My husband and I also shared the "mixed pork", which was mouthwatering. Decent wine list and very reasonably priced. We will likely go back again before we leave Siena! Great meal all around...the only downside is that we ate too much!

This small establishment is a 5 min walk from the Hotel Palazzo di Valli. The restaurant like the hotel are both well worth your interest. The food at Fori Porta was freshly prepared and tasty. The service was good without being too in your face. The stuffed onions as a starter were a real treat and the baked rabbit for a main course is also very recommended.

We liked the choices so much we went back the following two nights to further work our way through the quite varied menu. After long days driving all over Tuscany going back to this restaurant was consistently pleasant and gastronomically rewarding.

We did not book and were worried we would not get in as it looks small from the outside, but when you go in it is really large and modern pictures on the wall. The food here is very good and they even gave us an appetiser, my cured beef with a cheese mousse was brilliant, as was the duck I had for the main course, my wife had pasta for the main course this was lovely pasta cooked just right. Good wine list and they do a house wine as well, would of gone back again but they shut on Mondays, it was not busy the night we went but it was a Sunday night
