“Excellent Italian cuisine!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We went twice to l'Oro di Siena during our stay in the city. We once went for dinner and the next day for lunch. The home made pasta was delicious and so was the tiramisu with strawberries and chocolate. The waiter was very friendly and the prices were democratic. A real pleasure to visit.

“Great food, good service....but watch out for the Grappa digestivo!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

We had a lovely meal in L'Oro di Siena.....mixed crostini and a pasta and tomato dish to start followed by veal escalop with mushrooms and a steak tagliata. All food was beautifully cooked and presented and along with a bottle of water and half litre of house wine the bill was just under €50. A great meal at a reasonable price.
We were then given a taster of Grappa....50% proof....made my eyes water!!

“Great local cooking”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Just opposite the Hotel Minerva, the restaurant was packed with locals eating out with their families on a Saturday night. Unpretentious, friendly, charming service. I had excellent home-made pici pasta with a nettle and pigs cheek sauce which was superb. Very good value and a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

“Excellent Food!!!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

I was in Siena for three nights in May 2013. We stayed at the Minerva Hotel and the first night walked across the street to the L'Oro di Siena for dinner. The food and service were so good that we went there again the next night...again a great experience. Although we had planned on choosing a different place the third night, we again simply walked across the street to the L'Oro.
The owner, Matteo, was quite busy but took the time to explain the menu to us and was receptive to preparing some items not on the menu.
We recommended this restaurant to a couple we met on a Winery Tour and sure enough they showed up and said they thoroughly enjoyed their meal.
I look forward to eating at the L'Oro the next time I am in Siena and will recommend to all of my friends.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Our Australian family of four enjoyed great food, fabulous service, and fun conversation with a staff who were tolerant of our lack of Italian, while having some English of their own. Prices were very fair, and we will eat there again for sure! The Pici Pasta, Pizzas and Calzone were simply wonderful!
