We went in for lunch today. We sat down and we're seated by the surly owner. There were millions of tiny flying gnats everywhere. Tried to use the bathroom, but it was horrible and filthy. Apparently this is a tourist dive that caters to people...More

We walked in with no expectations as we went from the Duomo to the Campo. Only in Italy could we walk on the busiest tourist street and wander into a place that has the feel of a neighborhood restaurant with great food and wine at...More

Traditional Italian food, good and simple dishes. Service and music was also very good. Try the grilled vegetables!

We enjoyed the food here a lot, amazing soft malfatti, delicious pici with goose, tasty potatoes and fresh salad. As with several experiences in Siena, we found the service pretty lacking. Not particularly rude, just not at all attentive, nor easy to ask for help...More

The location of this restaurant is convenient, and upon reading previous reviews we thought it would be a good place with good food for a lunch with the family. In short, the food was mediocre at best, and the service was poor. Infrequent visits from...More

Parents with 2 kids, served us just right. Premium location, tasty food and decent prices. Got couple of pastas with pesto and couple soups which were really good. The cheese platter was refreshing, great for the adults, less for the kids. Git there around 3:00pm,...More
