Down a nice cobbled street just off the Piazza il Campo. Traditional Italian food; bruschetta, lasagna and tagliatelle. Perfect.

If you are looking for a good Florentine Steak - you must come here - it was cooked so well...perfectly rare and so tender! well complimented with some nice white beans. Before this...we tried the Spinach parcels antipasti which were light and tasty! and then we had the lasagne - best lasagne I think Ive had so much meat in... More

Nice place with good staff and quick service, but the plates are just really expensive for what you're getting. I spent 14€ for what felt more like an appetizer than a meal - could be fine if you're planning on ordering multiple dishes, but don't expect to be satisfied for anything less than 20 - 30€ per person.

As so often, a great meal in Tuscany means walking a short distance from the tourist trail. Being Siena, it is a easy and pleasant walk and well worth it. This is our third or fourth meal here over the years and, if anything it has improved. The menu is excellent with a wide variety of local Tuscan dishes .... More
