We will definitely go back if we ever return to Siena. The service was warm and gracious, and the food was amazing. The tiramisu was the best I have ever had!

We have been here for lunch during a day trip to Siena. The restaurant was recommended to us from a very good friend and we only can recommend it as well. The food was excellent and the service very attentive. The owner speaks German, what was very nice as we are native German speakers as well. We had pici with... More

The atmosphere created by the hostess is what makes this a great place to spend the evening. She so obviously wants to make sure everyone is happy, so she provides a bit of banter and likes a joke, so you feel like part of a family. The food is very good too and very good value

A completely informal, relaxed and totally unpretentious family establishment which, precisely because of that, makes it such a great experience. If you are a culinary snob then I am afraid this place is unlikely to be for you. No edible flowers or fancy swirls on your plate to be seen here! Its appeal is a laid back friendliness but served...

We have just returned from a week in Siena and I can honestly say that this is one of the best restaurants we have been to. We were on holiday with other members of our family who had been here three years ago and still remembered how good it was then and said that we had to try it and... More

We found it by chance as it is a little far from Siena city rush, just outside the walls, but what a catch. It's a true warm Italian restaurant, with a very warm welcome service and correspondent food. With was so authentically good we were there twice.

The owner / host was very warm and welcoming and the food although simple was very nice. We felt that the price was too high as it was only a few Euro less than some of the "fine dining" restaurants we had dined at.

Had dinner here last week. Britta made us feel so welcome, it was like having dinner with friends. Food was lovely, especially the steak with truffles and chocolate soufflé for dessert. Complimentary prosecco at the start and liqueurs at the the finish helped make this a memorable night. We were the last guests to leave but were never rushed and... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by Maria at the Campo Regio Relais. We said we would like a nice family run place and she recommended this restaurant, which is located just outside the old city walls. We got a great welcome here and the food was wonderful.
