This restaurant has delicious pasta and perfect portions. We did wait a while for our food, however it was very well worth it!

As with so many restaurants in Europe, the best place to eat is at the street tables. Here the added treat is being on a hill with table and chair legs cut to accommodate the slope. This mostly pedestrian thoroughfare is quiet during the day but from 19:00 on can be very busy. Traditional genuine Italian dishes at reasonable prices. We went with a couple of the waiter's recommendations and were not disappointed. The house wine was acceptable, but we had better at other restaurants in town.

Menu was hand-written. Mushroom pasta was divine. Ate outside at tables with special legs to accommodate the extremely steep grade of the street. Server gave special instructions for each meal.

This traditional little trattoria was just around the corner from here we were staying, so we experienced both a lunch time and evening meal there on separate days.

It's not a very big restaurant, seating is minimal, so expect to have to share a table with someone when it's busy, whether inside or out; for us, this was part of the charm, and didn't detract from the fact that the food was simply delicious.

The menus are handwritten, with not a great deal of choice, but the waitress was more than happy to recommend something and we are glad we took her advice. The house wine was delicious, the service was great and it was reasonably priced too. (40 euros for 2 people, 2 courses & wine)

We sat outside for our evening meal, which at first is a little odd as the restaurant is on a very steep hill (not too far from the main streets) but to compensate for the gradient, the table and chair legs have been cut to level them out - a very odd sensation when you first sit down, but all part of the fun.

We were there during some of the festivals, so got to witness a street party further down the road from where we sat, it only added to the great atmosphere of this already very welcoming and well-run restaurant. Just one warning though...taste the food before asking for parmesan or you might get told off!!

Had a great dinner. All dishes we had and shared were very tasteful. The meat that was cooked for three hours was very tender. The service was very friendly. Paid €40 for 2 including wine. And a place with Italians, which is hard to find in siena. Great value for money. Definitely recommend this place.
