“Smarmy service”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

We were recommended this restaurant, but we would not go there again.
At the beginning the waiter (probably the owner) was really smarmy, trying to give us what he wanted.
In fact we could not get the menu but were asked to choose only among two pasta dishes and one meat dish (without knowing the prices, btw). We chose two pasta dishes, served after half an hour or even more (food itself was good, nevertheless).
At the end we were repeatedly asked to get desserts with "maraskeeno" (whatsoever it is), but we were really annoyed with lack of choices and poor service and directly asked the bill; the waiter (owner?) then suggested us to go to McDonald's next time, no comment...
Moreover the bathroom (only one for men and women) is small, not very clean and the door cannot be locked.

P.S.: other restaurants in Siena we found are excellent instead!
