I only wish I had more room in my stomach to allow me to try everything on the menu. Each course was as good or better than the next, even the homemade bread amazed us. Service was excellent, food was excellent, owner was excellent. We were hear on a slightly rainy quiet night, the personal attention we received was almost... More

The food was delicious. The pasta was light and very tasty. Wine was reasonably priced at 12 euros for a really lovely white wine. We had secondi platti of beef with mushrooms which we shared and it was tender and very tasty. The service was excellent and the atmosphere relaxed and peaceful with low level music. Overall a great find... More

We had a very long day of airline and car travel, arriving in Siena late in the afternoon. We decided to walk to the restaurant to get some exercise, then got lost. Arriving 30 minutes past our reservation, we were worried we had lost our table, but it was waiting for us. Mathew, the owner, couldn't have been more gracious.... More

We had really fine experience in L'Oro di Siena. It is a small and very intimate restaurant and we were greeted and served by the owner. And it really showed...He treated us as his personal friends. Took really great care of us. I'm not sure if we have ever experienced such wonderful hospitality. He gave us recommendations on what to... More

For whatever reason we were ignored at that restaurant, We were the first group to arrive. Mange to place orders for starters and mains but after that we could not get any attention. Trying to catch a waiter to ask for wine or desert took ages. Waiter who was servicing us was walking pass out table up and down and... More

First night in Siena and this restaurant will be difficult to be bettered. One of the best fillet steaks I have ever eaten. Very rare and like velvet. My wife had rare strips of beef with radicchio, gorgon zola & walnuts. SUPERB. We will return.

Long story short, the best meal we have had in a long time. Located across the road from Hotel Minerva, this was a lovely spot and very reasonably priced for the quality of the food, ambience and staff. The pasta is impeccable.

Great food, great vine, great atmosphere, great service, great prices! Everything was just great! This is highly recommended. The prices are not $$$ as TripAdvisor says. I've been to restaurants in Siena with $ that was more expensive. The house red wine is also very good, and cost only 10€ per litre!

This restaurant is great. We went there for lunch, but ended having a regular dinner. The service was very attentive and they took care of all our needs. This is a small place, so make reservations if going in the evening. Our lunch started with the meat, cheeses and bruschetta antipasto. Wonderful hams, salumi and 2 different bruschettas. All very...
