Great Tuscan food and a very friendly owner made for a fab evening when we arrived in Siena for a short break. All of our food would be recommended...pasta, pork, beef; all washed down with terrific house wine and coffee. Highly recommended!

Our hotel was outside the city walls of Siena and we wondered where we could find a place to eat locally. Trattoria Fori Porta was around the corner from out hotel! We couldn't have been luckier to find this place. The food was some of the best that we had while in Italy! The owner was gracious and very accommodating.... More

Excellent food and service and very reasonably priced. To make this even better, it is within walking distance of the hotel that we stayed at.

We were in Siena for one night and our hotel was outside the Roma gate. We did not want to walk back into the town center for dinner, so we wondered into Fori Porta. What a surprise. The trattoria has a very nice country atmosphere. The food is very good and the service is excellent. The staff could not be... More

We found this restaurant while staying near Siena. It is hidden in a side street and has an unasuming entrance. The interior, however, houses a very nice dining area with a good menu and comparable service.

We visited the Fori Porta while staying at a nearby hotel. Good food (try the pici pasta) and the cougette rolls with mozzarella) and very reasonable local wines. Highly recommended.
