We found this place while we walked freely between the beautiful siena streets, and tried it out. We ordered lasagna and pasta with tomatoes and buffalo cheese. All the way the 2 waiters that served us were really unpleasant and apathetic, but the food was amazing and unique. All the food is made right on spot, and we can taste... More

This is our second 4 night visit to the amazing city of Siena. We are staying at wonderful Villa Elda, and they recommended and made reservations here for our second night. Unfortunately, our waitress was extremely grumpy and not happy to be there. But the rest of the staff was very friendly so we tried to overlook that. We both... More

In a rainy day we randomly took shelter here, sick of pizza and pasta after 3 days of only pizza and pasta. We were very glad to eat some dishes with beef that were very very tasty! :D And to our suprise with medium prices (with bread, service and coperto included)

My wife found this spot while strolling down the streets of Siena. We shared a plate of crostini and then I had pasta with porcini mushrooms and rosemary and my wife had eggplant Parmesan cooked in a pot with cheese. Both were extremely fresh. The service was attentive and it was a perfect spot for a relaxed lunch.

Down a nice cobbled street just off the Piazza il Campo. Traditional Italian food; bruschetta, lasagna and tagliatelle. Perfect.

Nice place with good staff and quick service, but the plates are just really expensive for what you're getting. I spent 14€ for what felt more like an appetizer than a meal - could be fine if you're planning on ordering multiple dishes, but don't expect to be satisfied for anything less than 20 - 30€ per person.

Thank Fregge
