“Very good, reasonable prices”
Reviewed June 27, 2011

If you are staying near here, it is a definitely worth going to - it is situated away from the Campo towards the Porta Romana entrance. We sat outside on the cobbled street as it was a lovely warm evening. The food is very good, prices reasonable and we had helpful and friendly service.

“Best meal we had in all 2 1/2 weeks we were in Italy.”
Reviewed June 5, 2011

Amazing... Came here at the suggestion of our inn keeper, and it was wonderful. We actually came for lunch and had salad, lasanga and an amazing steak cut (pictures coming). The beef wtih "aeromatic herbs" was the best thing we had in Italy. Not only was the food amazing, but the price was unbeatable... But I guess thats what happens if you're willing to venture away from Il Campo.

We liked it so much we were going to come back here again for dinner on our last night in Siena... But it was Sunday, and they were closed. Must go if you're in Siena.

“Very good restaurant popular with locals”
Reviewed May 7, 2011

We stumbled across this restaurant and it turned out to be the best one we ate at. We just got the last table as it is very popular particularly with locals. The food was good as was the wine, there was an interesting selection and it was well prepared. Our waiter was efficient and pleasant.

“Delicious beef fillet and dessert to savour”
Reviewed April 2, 2011

The beef fillet was delicious. Full of locals so always a good sign, although the service still catered to our sadly lacking Italian.
