“That was a really fine meal”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

This small, family-run place is located on a quiet side-street just off the main drag in central Siena. I can only report that everything I tried there was simply first-rate, including the best bruschetta I recall, an excellent meat-filled pasta dish, and a serving of veal marsala that was almost too much to finish; all accompanied by an inexpensive half-bottles of very good chianti classico. Service was friendly-casual and the overall experience the perfect way to conclude a day in this lovely town.

“Great find!!”
Reviewed May 19, 2012 via mobile

Stumbled across this restaurants while exploring Siena. Best meal in Siena!! We wanted to get away from the main stream area and found La Taverna Di Cecco and we got way more than expected the best antipasti, first and second courses and the best Tiramusa I have ever had. The two guys waiting tables we're great. I can't say enough about this place worth it to dine here.

“Incredible find with Grandma's recipes”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

We found this restaurant by accident while looking for another one. A local shop owner suggested that we go to this one. We were very pleased as all the dishes were "grandma's recipes" who could still be seen in the back of the restaurant working in the kitchen. We were given a free surprise appetizer of crostinis to start our meal. We ordered Veal Marsala, Tortellini with cream sauce, Barley soup and Osso Bucco. Wow! What a meal! ...and this was lunch!

“"Simply the Best" in Siena”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by a Dutch woman working in a small jewelry shop. She assured us that it had the best food in Siena and all the locals eat there. She did not stir us wrong. We were amazed at the flavors, what an experience. We had dinner there twice. It was so good we had to go back. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, the waiters are friendly and very helpful with explaining the dishes. We even had the waiter recommend a wine with dinner and it was exceptional. The prices are reasonable, food excellent, staff friendly, atmosphere pleasant - what more could you ask for in a restaurant. We tried something different each night. We had our two daughters with us and they were very impressed with the food. This restaurant offers a true taste of Italy. Everything is fresh and home made. We went to Florence from Siena and all of us agreed we missed the Siena restaurant. It was, "Simply the Best".
