This deli with a difference has a few spaces on the street in front to enjoy the delicacies from within. An institution oft photographed from without- photos prohibited within. But the sandwich we had was a meal for 2. Lovely fresh hot bread- thick cut roast lamb- stuffed with herbs and salt(not too much), thick slices of cheese of your choice and also sauce. Plus 2 beers- all for €12. When you compare this feast that takes a good while to eat with local pizza and fast food then its well worth it. A great treasure and also a deli....

Thee people that wrote a review and gave this place a 1 are cheap tightwads and shouldn.t travel and look for great food. The butchers were great and from the chianti to the vin santo the experience was truly outstanding. I will be returning to Italy again next year and will not miss this place. If you don't have a good palate then just stop in for the atmosphere. The meats are outstanding and good salumi and cheese going to cost you. Eat and enjoy!!!!!!!

This little storefront operation was a joy to find. Professional butchers cut you a wonderful porchetta sandwich, or cheese and salumi plate. You order a split of Chianti, and eat your goodies outside the shop(standing up). The meat was excellent, the wine was excellent, and so were the butchers. The shop is a gem.

We stumbled upon this wonderful little gem in Sienna. We were made to feel like long lost relatives and had an exceptional salami and chees sandwich on still warm from the oven bread. A nice 1/2 bottle of Chianti and their pests topped it all off. I would go back to Sienna just to go here! I'm guessing the few negative reviews are from folks who don't truly appreciate authentic and rustic Italian meats and cheeses.

astonishing place for goumets and chefs! a great selection of local hams, cheeses and other pork and beef processed products. wonderful wines and olive oils selections for a fair price. And, best of all, you can taste everything there.
