We stayed nearby so came here for dinner. It was already very busy when we arrived and as we hadn't booked we were given a seat outside the main restaurant overlooking the city. This was a bonus and we felt it was much better than sitting inside! We ordered a pizza and pasta with a beer but didn't get our "cover" of bread and found service to be a bit lacking (partly, I'm sure, owing to the fact that the restaurant was so busy). That said the food was good and delivered quickly and the view was wonderful. All in all it was worth the visit and seemed a popular local spot with Italians.

... with a great view, I give you that. But fortget the rest: The service (unexperienced young guys, you can't blame them!) is a complete mess once it gets crowded. The owner, not very pleasant, seems just to be there for surveillance. The food is decent when you are lucky (the pizze), a scandal when you are not. Avoid, avoid, avoid!
PS. Normally I prefer not to rate than rate low, but as this place was overbooked and the restaurants nearby quite empty, so you can always choose ....

OK, this is not a michelin restaurant. But the view is stunning, and the pasta's (< 10 EUR), mains and pizza (around 6 EUR!) are really great value. We come back each year

Readers! I mistakenly cited the wrong restaurant (Camporegio) in posting this review for La Pizerria di Nono Mede, which is situated at Camporegio 21 in Siena. We did not eat at Camporegio. My husband and I came upon La Pizerria di Nono Mede with its lovely view by chance: we had been looking for Il Pomodorino, highly cited in Trip Advisor, but it was closed for lunch on that day -- La Pizerria di Nono Mede is right next door to Il Pomodorino. The service was very friendly and fast, the pizza was excellent, the mixed salade was okay. It was a very hot day, but we sat on the shaded terrace where a fine mist was sprayed above us to keep us cool. The restaurant is especially nice because of the location, close to our hotel (Chiuraselli) and the view overlooking the town of Siena. If you want an inexpensive but tasty meal in a wonderful location, try this!

service was very bad, had to remind him of several things. pizza decent (half calzone, half pizza), salatone ok. as antipasti we had "mista del bosco", very good salami & ham, however on the menu it also includes "porcini", whereof we had exactly ONE on the plate... neighbours on the right ordered a pizza with tomato and basil, they ran out of basil, so the pizza came whitout basil. neighbours on the left had to wait for the pizza for more than half an hour.
tiramisu was huge, unfortunately the quality not as good as quantity. spectacular view, reasonable prices.
