I think the place is called Panini Il Cencio Rosemary flavoured wood oven roast pork sandwich on a fresh crusty roll. Yummy! Choose a pre-made or custom order. Ignore the signs as it is priced by weight and fillings. Worth every Euro. The chewy cookies are also delicious. Service was fast and friendly. (This place can get very busy.) Find... More

We noticed some people eating on a bench on a small balcony in the corner of the Piazza del Campo. We got there and had a on demand sandwich with great tuscanian ingredients: proschiutto crudo, tomato, piancetta cotta, herbs and salads ... This probably the better panini I ´ve had in my all life. Total price for the sandwich and... More

The location is super easy to find. The porchetta panino is so good. The pork is so juicy and the skin is crispy. A porchetta panino + beer or wine and have a picnic at the Plaza watching the vibe of the market place and kids chasing pigeons = perfect Sunday afternoon

Central location in Siena and friendly staff that would help you to create your perfect sandwich or panini. Excellent place for a quick lunch and they have nice wine too! We had a delicious pork panini with black olives pate and local cheese. Don't miss the balcony on the first floor with a great view of the Piazza del Campo!

You build your own sandwivh with wonderful bread with ver Good ingredients for the middle. Far beyond the usual franchise that sold you bread and salami at the price of a fancy restaurant.

They offer great valued panini's. But the best part is upstairs. You can sit, in the sun, with a really cool view of the square. It gets only better if you think of al the hundreds, maybe thousands of people who sad there last couple of centuries to enjoy the horse race.

We stopped in the Il Cencio Panini shop while visiting the Piazza del Campo on a bright September afternoon. We had been drawn to the shop when we entered the piazza from the sitting above the shop and the meats, cheeses and condiments in the display case. We had our 3 sandwiches made with whatever we wanted, they were heat... More

Popped in with my wife when there was some kind of festival on, the panini's and view from the balcony lured us in. The gentleman who served us was amazing, talked us through and let us try what went well with which meat and recommended different drinks as well. We stayed for about 3 hours on the balcony. Both staff... More

We requested 4 porchetta sandwiches with many kinds of ingredient. They were the best sandwiches we have ever eaten. The man and the woman were also very polite and patient. We really liked that place.
