First of all, the service was great. Britta, the owner was really friendly and helpful with suggestions from the menu. For the food, I chose the truffles to start. They were delicious. For the main course, my friend and I shared and enjoyed a rare, succulent, cooked to perfection Florentine Steak. Despite being full to burst, I was cajoled into... More

Based on the perfect previous reviews, we arrived full of expectations. We chose the pecorino and ham rolls as a starter for my wife and pasta carbonara for myself. Have to say that The pecorino rolls were nice with the onion jam, but my pasta was just averege you can have in any other trattoria. Then we had trippa with... More

Hi Thomas, I am Britta, the owner, I served you personally last night. I am very sad that you were not satisfied, I will never understand how comes that guests makes me a lot of compliments (like you did last night) and then write a bad review, I really prefer to be honest all the time, but maybe it was...

An all-round fantastic dining experience! We had two different wild boar first courses - both outstanding. Our seconds were a T-bone for 2, and a filet of beef with a chianti sauce - both exceptional! This was the final official evening of a 12 day trip for the family and our daughter's semester abroad, and the food throughout was very... More

First and foremost, the food was great; we had a wonderful appetizer with prosciutto, cheese, and onion jam; followed by pasta carbonara with goose bacon and eggs; then thinly sliced steak with mushrooms; and an insalata mista (mixed salad); no room for dessert! What really sets this restaurant apart is Britta's warm welcome; complete with a small glass of complimentary... More

After having dinner at several different places in Siena we finally decided to follow the advertisement at the parking space sta catarina to Sotto le fonti. We entered a bit sceptically, can not really say why, but it was the best decision of the day. Hosting was friendly, not pushy or with the typical Tuscany lack of interest for tourists... More

This restaurant with a very warm German hostess and a very good Italian cook was visited by us twice this August. Both times both the food and the wine were superb. Everything is homemade and every item is made with love and passion. Very kind people who run this restaurant because they like to please the customer. This is how... More

Osteria Enoteca Sotto LeFonti never disappoints. My boyfriend and I have returned to visit Britta and Roberto each time we stay in Siena or nearby. This year we visited in April and again in the summer and both meals proved just how fresh, seasonal and delicious the food is at Sotte LeFonti. I had quails eggs with shaved truffles to... More

Typical Tuscan cuisine with a modern twist. Home made ravioli ( we tried the lemon based and black ones) were both delicious and very delicate. As Antipasto try involtini of cheese with speck and onion jam. We concluded with a lemon tiramisú, grappa and the classic cantuccini e vin santo (again home made). Excellent service!

Excellent food with unusually good service, including recommendations for wines and specials. Recommend the mixed platter starter and the delicious apple pie desert!
