The pub as the nicest view on Piazza del Campo, prices of beers are correct, sandwiches are worth the price. This for positive side. On the other side of the coin there is fact that this place being on of the most touristic square of Italy is supposed to offer a decent service to ist customers . On the contrary... More

Good selection of beers but if you order the Erdinger be prepared to wait! The place is quite small and tucked away in side alley (seats outside in summer) and a balcony seat during the Palio might set you back €300 :-) . The loo is "interesting" in a good way! There is a secret cupboard in which the staff... More

We really enjoyed the food here,especially handmade Panini. It must be the BEST choice in Siena, also you could spend all the afternoon seeing such a hustle and bustle square. What a lovely pub.

Perfectly located direct on the Campo, the San Paolo Pub was a great place to sit and people watch. My wife and I did not have dinner or lunch here, but sat down for an early evening aperitif. With recommendation, one of the most common and notably delicious local cocktails is an Aperol Spritz, which is a combination of Prosecco... More

We only went to Siena on a day trip and happened to stumble upon this tucked away pub. We stopped in during lunch time to enjoy a cold draught beer (they have IPA!) And a platter of cold cuts. They don't offer table service so you have to order at the bar. We enjoyed it so much that we came... More

I had been warned not to eat in the restaurants around the campo since they are expensive. However, I was hungry and decided to go in and look at the prices. They had hot sandwiches and the prices seemed reasonable. I ordered at the bar and the waiter was very helpful suggesting the vegetarian sandwich. I sat outside where I... More

Service terrible. Following Palio, ordered 2 beers. Watched old man reach across and sip at a beer placed on bar, then be told by barmaid it wasn't his. Watched that same beer then be put in front of me as one of the 2 beers we ordered. Then asked to leave because bar seats were "reserved" even though there was... More

The food and coffee were fine, but the highlight for me was the little balcony overlooking the popular piazza - Il Campo, where so much of the action in Siena seems to happen. The narrow little balcony has half a dozen stools and allows a small number of people to squeeze into one of the best places for a bird's... More
