We had two meals at Quei Due. Our dinner was just fine. Had a delicious Truffle and Taglione pasta dish with a garlic and oil sauce. Our lunch the next day was a little disappointing. While in Italy you will be confronted with one small problen. When you are out in the countryside, away from major tourist areas, the offerings at most restaurants are quite limited. Prosciutto and tomato and/or cheese paninis along with Caprese insalate (tomato, Mozzarella and a few greens) are virtually all that is available. My caprese had none of the fresh vine-ripened tomatoes most of Italy is known for. Just your run of the mill colorless variety. Have a gelato a couple of doors down. They have Noci E Fichi (nuts and figs) gelato. Delicious!

opens at 19:30, but you can be left waiting for the staff to finish their dinner...until 19:45. Ordered an appetizer of cold cuts....which was for 2 people and was not told...it was good but a lot. The couple dining next to us had the same mishap and ended up with cold cuts for three (2 + 1). Pasta were average. All very salty. Service was absent...drive 5km out the city to Villa Di Sotto for a great view, real service, simple and tasty food and lovely patrons. Or go to Pellegrino.

We had lunch here the first day and the food was very good. We arrived and the family/staff were still having there lunch - it looked really good. They seated us and let us know that we would have to wait a little since they weren't really open yet. We were fine with this and were rewarded with a great lunch. The best dish was the ravioli served with hot balsamic vinegar. The cheese in the ravioli was excellent and combined with the vinegar was just to die for. The rest of the meals were good but this was fantastic! The service was good and it looked like there were a lot of locals there for lunch.

I rated it Good for atmosphere because it is right on the main street so not really any great view or ambience. Very nice and clean though.

My wife stayed with a family in Siena when she studied there a couple of decades ago. Those two, along with another two Sienese delinquents scour the Tuscan countryside around Siena looking for extraordinary restaurants. Since our visit last summer, those four found Quei 2, and we went there.

I had the Pappardelle with Cinghiale, something I have every year. It was great. So were the other dishes that we ordered. The presentation of the food was first class, portions are generous, prices quite reasonable.

If you get the chance, go. You won't be disappointed. Why? Perchè si.

I don't like the $$$ below, so here's some detail on cost: We sat outside and skipped the antipasti. Everyone ordered a primo and a secondo, lots of side dishes and most of us ordered dessert and coffee afterwards. There was plenty of water and wine at the table. €200 for nine. Service was prompt without rushing us, and quite tolerant of the difficulties of a good sized group. They were expecting us.
