We happened across this small quaint restaurant while walking in Siena. There are about 4 tables that seats no more than 12 people. The menu is handwritten in Italian for that day. But the waitress, who is wonderful, will gladly interpret it for you. Good house wine and bread. My husband had Bistecca Briuca (roast pork) and I had Pici... More

Went here for dinner on our first night and went back the next two. Great food, lovely ambiance, excellent value but above all friendly and welcoming people. Really enjoyed our meals and our evenings here, fantastic. Thank you.

This was one of the best meals I had it Italy. Super rustic and authentic to Tuscany, it was the white beans and sausage, so simple yet delicious! My family loved their meals too but I was so into mine, I don’t remember what they had. The other stars of the restaurant were the waitress and the bread chest! The... More

Went for lunch. Penne arrabiata was not spicy at all. Overcooked pasta. All other food was just blah. Nothing special. Same thing can be made at home.

This was not our first choice and we were were disappointed the first 2 items we chose off the menu were no longer available, but in the end we enjoyed some decent Tuscan food. It was pretty hot inside, didn't feel like there was any air conditioning. The tables outside are nicely laid out on the hill.

Delightful location, promising menu, but disappointing food and attitude. Pasta was over cooked; pork chop roast too salty, tomatoes in salad tasteless. Shared tables invited social experience; one companion a welcoming local b&b owner; the other, the restaurant's owner. He interacted with a dour attitude, never asked about our experience or even thanked us for our patronage. Disappointing...

This place is very casual and as far as I can judge a typical Tuscany Osteria. The food is simple and delicious, the service is good and the cheap house wine just great! We had a very nice evening here ;)

What a great place. The menu is hand written, the staff are really lovely and it is just off the tourist thoroughfare, but do not think it is pricey.... It is extremely reasonable for fantastic food. We had 3 courses for 3 for under €45.... which we thought was brilliant. We had the tuscan platter for 3 to start, for... More

This was in a very old guide book I had. Very close to our hotel so thought we would give it a try. It's rustic and charming. Small menu, local wine. Great service and NO sneaky cover charge. Four of us shared an antipasto starter €10 it had nice meats, peppers, anchovies and was good. Fresh bread also accompanied it.... More
