Service from some of the staff was a bit unfriendly, but it was quick and the food was delicious, particularly the rabbit cooked like tuna (in a jar, with oil and herbs).

Previous trips to Siena included a dinner at La Taverna di San Guiseppe, but our party of 12 (six adults, six kids between 8-12) couldn't be fit in, so we were left to make other arrangements--and thank goodness for that. After a wonderful late-afternoon walk...More
