At the recommendation of our B&B owner (Castello delle Quattro Torre), we tried L'Osteria for a late lunch on our first day in Siena and we still consider it the best overall meal of our entire 12 day honeymoon. The restaurant itself is cozy, warm and the service wonderful. We loved both of our main courses - my husband had... More

Even by Italian standards, this place stands out for excellent food and courteous service. Every time we're here on holiday, we return to this restaurant, and we've never regretted it.

This little restaurant on a side street was recommended too us by our b&b hostess. It was far better than anything in the guidebooks and exceeded even the best we experienced in Florence and other places. Great local Tuscan food.

This restaurant was really amazing. A lot of the dishes were rich so if you like cheese head here. We first had the crostini with gorgonzola and truffles, super rich as expected but very delicious and you should definitely try! I can’t recall what my sauce was called but I think it was what they were known for, a gorgonzola... More

Traditional atmosphere, inventive take on traditional food. We started with the crostini with gorgonzola and truffle and Cacio e Pepe Pici, both of which were excellent. As entrees we had the Pollo alla Diavola and Cinghale dolce e Forte, wild boar with a sauce that includes chocolate. Popular with locals and with tourists, so expect a wait if you have... More

I like this place a lot in some ways; the ambience is nicely Italian, and the server we had was very good. Sadly, the quite expensive bistecca Fiorentina (giant T-bone) was, as another reviewer has noted, full of gristle to the point being almost inedible. Hard to cut even with a sharp knife. I'm sure we would have been perfectly... More

We had our evening meal here. Not a very wide choice of food but traditional dishes you would expect on the menu. Food was excellent, staff were attentive without being over fussy good value we were pleasantly surprised at the bill.

Thank Seggie
