Lovely location in a glass ceilinged former palazzo courtyard, and very attentive and professional service. But rather pricey given the average-at-best quality of the food. Probably our least favorite carpaccio di manzo in Italy. Caprese salad was lackluster, too. Even the small portioned $23 Euro veal cheek secondi was lackluster. Surprising given the gorgeous high-end hotel setting.

In a quiet vaulted courtyard off the busy historic streets of Sienna sit in this grand old villa built by a pope for his niece. The furniture and fittings are modern. The service impeccable. The menu and food carefully selected and prepared. My husband and I had a very romantic dinner away from the crowds.

If staying in the hotel, conveniently located, if not, still conveniently located. Regional cuisine with excellent service. Although its a hotel restaurant, still excellent regional food.

Had an outstanding lunch here by accident. Gnocci were the best I have ever eaten. Decor is beautiful, service was excellent. Also they serve salads in these giant china soup toureens - an A for presentation - salad a solid C.

Since we were staying at the Grand Continental, we had dinner hare our first night. We were pleasantly surprised. The meal was wonderful and the Brunello recommended by the sommelier was also excellent.

When in Siena do go for a meal in this restaurant. The choice of food and wine is great but mostly it's a wonderful environment in one of Siena's most beautiful palaces. The service is 5***** plus! And the quality/price ratio really great. A pleasure not to be missed.

We stayed at the hotel which was perfect so sampled the wine bar and restaurant which was great rather than exceptional. The staff were lovely, the vista of it being in a covered atrium were perfect and the food in terms of flavours and content were great. The special sliced rare beef and pasta we tried were both good, well... More

This was supposed to be one of the 'best restaurants in Siena', located in the chic Grand Hotel Continental. However, it was not as good as expected. Sure, the location is nice, in a decorated atrium, and the staff does their best. However, the (only a la carte) menu is quite limited and offers large plates instead of 'fine' dishes.... More
