We were a group of 12 including four children. We booked via The Fork only a few hours in advance. The fact that there was space for us was slightly worrying! I needn't have worried. They put us in a separate room across the micro-street from the main part of the micro-restaurant. It was a lovely space. The wine stock... More

Found this little eatery a short walk from the Piazza del Campo, sympathetic use of quality ingredients, it was the best meal of our holiday. Understated but you won't be disappointed if you make a little effort to find this little hidden jem

We were craving for a pasta meal. After a quick TA search, we found this gem of a small hidden restaurant a stone throw away from the famous square 'campo'. It was the best bet. We had by far the best spaghetti vongole and papardelle al ragu di chianina in a very long time. Pasta was perfectly cooked. This restaurant... More

Our hotel recommended it for dinner. It is slightly hard to find but not far from the campo or the bus depot. We ordered a bottle of local chianti classico and ordered some starters and then pasta and main course. the terra misu was great as expected.

This small restaurant is hidden down a street behind the Torre. The food was very good, and the handmade pico pasta would be worth a try. Service was very attentive, and while courses arrived at an American pace (quickly), we didn't feel rushed. As at most restaurants in Italy, you can't go wrong with a carafe (or half) of the...

Recommended to us by locals - A small quiet bistro with good service, excellent food and wine at a very good price. Nice ambience away from the busy streets.

Stumbled upon this restaurant while visiting beautiful Siena. Small establishment run by owners. Atmosphere was cozy and serene. Food was absolutely delicious. Homemade ravioli was amazing. Ending up relaxing here with great food and wine for about 2 hours!! A must try.

Recommended by our hotel as somewhere to go after the Palio. (General point here do your research about what colour scarf or clothes to wear where you eat because it will get you a better welcome, red black and white here) Food was outstanding, The menu different and the wine very good. Service great and the family that ran it... More

This is a great place to eat in a casual environment with a nice wine list and great prices. Friendly, attentive service and a quick walk from the main piazza. The Pici pasta was homemade and delicious. They also have a great wines by the glass menu.
