What more can I say. Our hotel recommended this restaurant and it was perfect from beginning to the end. Pity it is not closer to Siena. Price VERY reasonable for the quality of the food. Highly recommend

You need a car to find the restaurant outside of town but it is so worth it! The table setting is gorgeous with lace, the quality of the food and presentation is outstanding, and the owner seems to be a very nice person. We took recommendations from the excellent waiter.

I recommend that you go for an interesting experience. Ask the owner to chose your wine. He is a wonderful man with a huge cultural depth in enology. You do not have to worry about price. He takes great pride in proposing value for money wines. Don't leave without the "piatto Del buon ricordo"

This local restaurant was recommended by our host who arranged our bookings on the two nights we ate there. Just outside the city limits, but still only a short drive, this family restaurant was like being invited into a family home. The husband is front of house with his wife as the chef. The decore is authentic and the meals... More

We were driving back to our agriturisimo after a quick grocery trip to Siena. We thought we had found a pizzeria. Instead, we found a lovely, friendly trattoria with excellent food. My first look to the dining room with charger plates, and linen napkins, caused me some concern. When the waiter brought the extensive wine list I ordered two glasses... More

Having a Dinner at Ettore Silvestre is a great experience. Everything he is doing, he does with "passione". Its a bit outside Siena, but absolutely worth the little trip!

We ate there in a hot Sunday and the place was empty, only an old couple of italians and us. Was perfect though cause we have a toddler and she is very active so she had the whole place for herself.

This is a restaurant with history (supplied by the taxi driver) and a wine cellar that is the real deal, not a display for tourists. We were greeted with a glass of champagne and an appetizer and just kept on getting better. According to the taxi driver (it is not inside the old city, you need a taxi to get... More
