Our meal at Cafe' Berta was a result of failing to make reservations earlier in the day at our original restaurant of choice. So we backtracked to Cafe' Berta. It was a Saturday evening in Siena and the lack of customers should have been our tip-off. The food was mediocre and so was the service. The bread was stale and... More

Perfectly situated by the gate into the historic city. Walkable to the train station too. Nice outdoor space to have coffee and pastries before starting the day or relax and people watch. Friendly. So many pastry options.

We ate several times at Cafe Berta. The handmade pasta was always delicious. The service is a plus: very friendly and good prices. You can also have a great spumante under the trees. A nice choice at Siena.

We stopped in as soon as we walked thru porta. We wanted to get some snacks and caffe before we started walking around Siena. The panne forte a Siena specialty was outstanding and the Ricciarelli cookies were great. Also, great caffe.

I was impressed with the server. She was attentive and polite. The food was ok but not fantastic. Overall it was decent but the pasta was not as good as several others we have had on our trip. The baking was excellent though so dessert made up for it a bit. A neat location near one entrance to the walls... More

We ate here twice, both time the service was great. Wine by the bottle ranges from 15-25 and we had 3 different ones and all were great. I can recommend the gnocchi in a black truffle sauce, the veal with porcini mushrooms in a truffle sauce, the pici (noodle of the region) with mushrooms and sausage and their homemade soup.... More

We were lost and waiting for someting to happen...and then it did. The mixed grill fish with tonna salmon, and the best part, the swordfish was like a tapdancer on my tongue. So delicate, so many flavours. Harmonic wow. The tiramisu is what tiramisu should taste like

Its on the via Francigena route on the right as you pass Porte Camollia. Small area to stand and take a coffee. Outside seating. Pleasant service. Good range of pastries. Coffee also good. Like the café because its bright and friendly.
