This small delicatessen is tucked on a Sienese side street just off the Duomo piazza and the Il Campo. This place is very popular with the locals so if you want to see the city as a local, this is a great stop to make. During peak lunch hours, there can be a line but it does move quickly.
Pizzicheria de Miccoli boasts large rounds of cheese, jarred olives, and hanging smoked meats that fill the shop's windows. The local wine selection is quite impressive featuring small vinyards that are hard to find in a more mainstream shop. The prices are also very reasonable.
Two brothers own the shop share their wine and regional delicacies with unbridled energy running about with all the enthusiam and charm of the Mario brothers. They shout back and forth with each other while making jokes, poking familiar customers, and filling orders.
The food was some of the best we tasted in all of Italy. All the meats are made in the shop and anything else is local. We purchased enough meats, local cheeses, and bread for a picnic. Do not leave here without trying at least one of the many types of pesto. It is freshly made each day and tastes like Italy in a bite.
Pizzicheria de Miccoli is truly the consummate Italian, family-owned delicatessen. Even if you are just in Siena for a day, make sure to stop by for samples and a glass of wine. It is well worth your time.
