Lunch for myself, my husband amd my two daughters was a good experience. It was a real scorcher and we were pleased with the welcome and service. We noticed that the waitress was really patient with a Japanese couple who clearly were pushed for time and ended up with a pizza take out. Felt it was all good but clearly, judging from other reviews, the experience is inconsistent.

We had lunch at this place on a scorching hot day. The hostess/waitress had a bit of an attitude. The food was fresh and good, but he portions were quite small, so we ended up needing dessert. That was where things improved. Their grapefruit (pompelmo) gelato was so refreshing! We enjoyed it so much we looked for it at every other gelateria that we went to in Italy, but only one other place had that flavor. I don't remember how the prices were, just that we left kind of hungry and commenting on the waitress who clearly doesn't like her job.

We suspected that given the perfect location on the Piazza del Campo, this restaurant might survive on minimum standards with tourists flocking in for the view. Quite the contrary, our pizzas were very good indeed and they also split them for the kids to share. The service was slow and credit card machines didn't work, but we enjoyed the unhurried moment, enjoyed the shade and vapour coolers and watched the crowdes get scorched on the Piazza. With drinks, I remember paying some 35€, for 2 aperitives, 2 glasses of rosé, 2 soft drinks, bottled water and 3 pizzas.

We visited Siena during Jun 2012. We drove down from Lucca, Tuscany. After parking the car in the Duomo Carpark, we walked up to the Piazza di Campo. Sat down at this restaurants and had sandwiches and drinks. We had the Panino Lattina and 2 x Panino Rustico, with 2 x 1ltr bottles of water and a Fanta, which cost €30.50. It might seem expensive, but you are paying for the view. Nice place to sit and relax and take in the expanse of the Piazza and the Campo.

We dined at this restorante in Siena three times and thoroughly enjoyed it each visit. Our meals included melone and proscucitto, marghareta pizza, gnocci with four cheeses, spaghetti carbonara, ragu of wild boar, lasange, insalata mista & capriccio, and gelato! All were very tasty, well prepared and our young table service signora was most pleasant and attentive. We are not likely to return to Siena but if we do we most definitely will dine at La Costa.
