The food is beyond expectations. Service was awesome. Just a wonderful delight. Pricey but not over priced. You will need a reservation. I agree with others that this is one of the best Siena has to offer. Manga!!!

A wonderful high quality dinner! Pasta and chicken dinners were excellent and very generous sized portions. The fried artichokes and roasted potatoes were great with the meat dishes. But the best of all was the Tiramisu. A must and a definite return!

Gnocchi was stuffed with cheese and topped with the freshest tomato sauce. Unbelievable! A close second was a pasta like a penne but bigger with bacon and onions. Totally delish! Risotto was good but not the best. Do NOT miss the cannoli. The service was...More
