We really enjoyed meeting Britta and found her to be very hospitable and friendly. Everything is home made and freshly sourced, if you are looking for family style traditional Sienese food, this is the place. A little out of the way but worth it...goose bacon...More

We absolutely cannot recommend this place enough. Get away from the overpriced average food in Siena palazzo and surrounds and try some incredibly tasty genuine Tuscan food and lovely warm friendly service in a family run Osteria. We had the pappardelle with fresh truffles, beef...More

A lovely intimate family run restaurant just outside the walls of Siena. We enjoyed some of the local recipes which were beautifully cooked. The restaurant filled up with local people while we were there which we felt was another good indication of its quality.
