After some heavy sight-seeing, we were wandering around, hungry, wondering how to find a really good restaurant in a city full of tourist traps. My friend, who speaks Italian, stopped a man and ask what he would recommend. He pointed to a nearby restaurant which we had been looking at and said, "This is the best place in the city." We were overwhelmed by the ambiance which was outdone only by the quality of the food and the excellent service. After reading the other reviews here, I would say we asked the right person. A "don't miss!"

Everything was perfect, the setting, the food, the service. A little expensive for our budget but, worth it.
Todo fue perfecto, el lugar, la comida, el servicio. Un poco caro pero lo vale. Pidan el risotto, esta fenomenal!
Una de las mejores cenas de Italia y muy romántico.

We had read no reviews, nor did we have any recommendations. It was lunch time, we were hungry, they were open. How fortunate for us. This was the best dining experience we had in 2 weeks in the region and we had very good experiences. The ambience of the restaurant is just wonderful, the staff are warm and welcoming and the service was excellent. The Guinea Fowl was superb as was the Wild Boar and the Chocolate Fondant desert was to die for. The restaurant was full of very happy diners, all beaming from ear to ear and obviously as blown away as we were.

My meal consisted of
--The richest, most lucious potato gnocchi with cheese sauce covered in truffles
--Roasted rabbit and root vegetables, covered in white truffles
--Watching a friend's risotto being finished in a wheel of pecorino cheese--the cheese melted into the risotto
--Running into a couple of friends from our trip who thought they could sneak off for their fifth anniversary dinner until we ran into them. They had eaten here on their honeymoon, and when they told the chef, he made them a torte. Which my friends later shared with us.

Beautiful ambience, special service, outstanding food. An essential Siena experience.
