Remember it well from our trip to Tuscany. Was recommended by a local shop owner and it did not disappoint. Enjoyed the Pici Pasta (local fav) with pesto with a carafe of vino de la casa -- rosso. Just up the street from Piazza del Campo on Via San Pietro.

This restaurant was recommended to us as a local gem, it didn't disappoint. We have been travelling for 3 weeks now and it was far and away our best meal so far. It is more of a local than a tourist restaurant, food, wine and prices all very good. Not to be missed on your trip to Siena.

After a recommendation from my hosts at my hotel, I had a really nice meal at this restaurant being a salad with a pork fillet with caramelised onion with balsamic sauce. The service was quick and friendly.

Food OK. Serving awful. Restaurant not living up to old stars. Go elsewhere for total impression. Mist restaurant in Siena serves good food with heart and feeling.

Four of us (teaching colleagues) visited here spontaneously for lunch, as another restaurant in the same street, where we had enjoyed an excellent lunch two years previously, was closed (presumably because it was Monday). Service was quick and friendly, and the vaulted complex of rooms attractive. We shared excellent polenta crostini (with Tuscan sausage) and crostini with smoked swordfish; chickpea... More

Walked in without a reservation. We must have lucked out because the owner had to turn away customers throughout the night because they were full. Service was spot on as was the food. Had the starter of grilled Italian sausage on polenta crostini with Parmesan sauce....OMG! The best thing I have eaten in Italy so far. Followed it up with... More

Nothing pretentious about this place, it does though have several levels under the ground floor. There were 4 of us and we had between us some pasta, sformatina, tagliata and pork with salads and other sides. Overall we over ordered given the size of the dishes. Reasonable wine list at reasonable prices.

We spent only one evening in Siena and hadn't thought to make a reservation. The manager of the apartment where we were staying recommended this Osteria. We passed by on our walks and asked to be able to reserve for the same evening. We received an almost angry reply that the restaurant didn't take reservations as they had a large... More

We went here as the place we hoped to go to was full and another hard to find. It was a Plan B, or even C. In fact it was a great option as the food was wonderful, service was friendly and appropriately attentive without being intrusive, environment a bit of a quirky modern feel in a traditional space and...
