The food is great, the service is fab the only issue can be getting a table/ reservation, it seems to go from empty to absolutely packed in a heart beat. We have been going to Siena for 15 years and the consistency has always been there, we keep waiting for it to turn but every year they remind us of... More

Great place, great food, and very friendly service. People who write that the service here is rude here are completely wrong. Place was full [only Italians, apart from me that is!], which usually means the food is good to very good. And it is. Next time I am back in Siena, I will eat here again! Normal prices here btw.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant to us. We were sceptical but it turned out to be a fantastic choice. The service was very good and friendly. Four of us, we had soup as starter, then pasta, tripes and stew veal with bones on for main. The food was superb. Even my Italian brother in law who is a real food... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience here. The waiter gave wonderful recommendations about house specialties. The wine was wonderful. I had minestrone soup and sausage & beans in tomato sauce. My husband had wild boar picci and pheasant. The gluten free cookies were an added bonus, even though I was so stuffed, I greatly enjoyed them! It is clear that this... More

We really enjoyed our lunch. We ate outside and had a beautiful view of the tower. Everything we ordered was great...except the beans in the red sauce. Didn't care for those at all..haha. The Wild Boar, fresh ravioli, bread soup...fantastic!

We dined here for lunch and although the food was delicious, our experience was marred by the rude staff. Recommended dish is the local specialty - pici pasta with cheese and pepper. It was amazing. Also recommended is the pasta in amatriciana sauce. The pasta with wild boar was very average, considering it was boar hunting season at the time.... More

Their ravioli was superb! Their mushrooms are so fresh! Loved their wines and veal. The biscotti at the end was perfect. We would totally recommend it!

Ate here for lunch on tour guide's recommendation, also mentioned in RS guidebook. Service was quick even after the wrong order was brought out. Restaurant was very busy and staff was kept constantly moving. Food was good, fair price for portion.

The restaurant is behind the main piazza with lots of outdoor seating. It would be great for a family as it's noisy and casual with decent food. Several things we ordered were no longer available (they make their own pasta and so substitutions were being made). The food we did have was good. The menu was fairly extensive so there... More

Nothing special about this restaurant. Food was good quality but average in terms of taste, quality and value.
