Family atmosphere, like eating at home! We ordered gnocchi with the secret green sauce (creamy pesto?), gnocchetti, and risotto with squash. Quick & efficient service, generous portions, and everything was absolutely delicious. We would definitely return to this restaurant.

This local spot was a short walk from our Hotel Athena. A quaint osteria mixed with locals and tourists. We heard of the gnocchi from reviews and I do believe it was the best gnocchi I have ever had. The presentation was a bit lacking with a single color and no garnish but the taste was wonderful. My wife had... More

This was a lively lovely meal. It is a little place and the tables are close together. Lots of atmosphere. We started with the charcuterie dish for 2 which was enormous and very tasty. Then the gnocchi. This is the best gnocchi I have had anywhere . Stuffed full of cheese and with an amazing source. The lamb to follow... More

Possibly the best and most complete meal we had in Tuscany! We had four different kinds of pasta, all excellent, great vino di casa, fantastic tiramisu and the final touch, delicious homemade amaretto as a treat. Buonissimo!

We booked a table here on the recommendation of our b&b owner, who said we had to try the gnocchi. Quite simply it was a fantastic place to eat, with great service, good prices and a lovely ambience - and the gnocchi really is amazing! Having been to a few "traditional restaurants" on our trip, I would recommend sharing a... More

Restaurant was crowded when we arrived, without reservation, but they seated us. Food was good. I had roasted chicken dish. The wine they brought us was really good, Montalcino wine!

For 17 summers Siena has been my home. This is one of the places I come to often. Great food! Unpretentious, rustic, delightful atmosphere. Siena used to be filled with places like Nonna Gina...now, not so much. Don't miss it!

We arrived late on a saturday evening expecting it to be too busy without a reservation but we immediately sat and swiftly ate a delicious meal. The owners and waiters don' t faff about much with fancy waiters' charm but I prefer that way it was just a comfortable place to eat. We are vegetarian and there was no problem... More
