This restaurant is a little outside of town, but worth the walk to find, because it was the best meal we had in Italy! The dining room is very cozy, and the owners are very welcoming, it feels like you've gone to a friends house...More

We ate a really good dinner during our stay in Siena. The service was excellent despite the lady of the house was alone and the restaurant was full. Bruscetta and chicken liver with a taste of caprese served on bread for aperitivi, pasta for primiti...More

Possibly one of the best meals we've had in Italy, certainly the best we've had on this trip to Tuscany! Delicious starter, pasta and desert. What made the real difference here is the freshness and quality of the ingredients - such as the freshness of...More

We are from Australia and we love food. After a week in Rome eating decent but not outstanding meals, we were thrilled to find Sotto Le Fonti. It was recommended by our hosts at our villa just out of Siena - no chance we would...More

We had a fantastic meal here, possibly the best we have had in Italy up to date, which has been 3 weeks. A little difficult to find, through the arch, past the car park and on the right but well worth the effort. The staff...More

This is a small Osteria opposite S.Katarina car park near to the escalators up to the duomo. The menu isn't large and the place inside small. I suggest a reservation unless you arrive when it opens around 7pm. The service is helpful and the food...More

We had a great meal. Welcoming host and good food. It was worth the walk from the city center of Siena. Location was ok--right on the road, and cars passing by did not add to the ambience. However, we will return one day.
