Delicious restaurant, genuine local food, charming atmosphere and good value for money.
Steak done to perfection without having to ask for it, great osso buco, delicate pear desert.

The restaurant is slightly away from main piazza, but has plenty of character within its walls! Excellent service, family style run restaurant, lovely traditional style menu. We started with sides of spinach, then white beans with sage, and they were both extremely good, then Osso Bucco, the traditional Ribollita soup, and caprese salad, drunk with house red and white. The food was very delicious, and extremely good value. Nice also to find these little places away from the main area, we had a very happy and fun night, this is a little gem!

We ate at Medio Evo in Assisi earlier this evening and wanted to write this review as soon as we got back to the hotel. The food was wonderful - I had the mixed grill and mixed vegetables, and we started with a wonderful pheasant tortellini. My wife had Chicken with Capers, Sage and Lemon. We absolutely loved the cuisine. Also, our waiter was excellent and I have to say that the music, which was played at just the right volume on the sound system, was relaxing and set the perfect touch. We loved this place - a fine place that makes you feel happy to be alive.

Early dinner meant we were first in the restaurant, sitting in the brick clad dining room rather than outside. Good friendly service and good Tuscan menu choices. The carpaccio of swordfish had a slight orange flavour to it which added a nice twist. Tuscan sauce, wild boar I think, was nicely balanced and great with the pasta noodles. The ossobuco with rice was served with a rich tomato sauce that went well with the house Chianti. Just off the Campo this is a much better option for good local food than on the square itself. Enjoyable and good value

Just a few blocks away from the main piazza in Siena lies this hidden gem, tucked underneath a stairway. It's a lot more quiet in this restaurant, which has terrific ambience - encased in stones and bricks - and seemingly run by an older family couple.

Most importantly, the food was simply amazing. I had heard you can't beat the food in Tuscany, and at this restaurant, I had the most ravishing truffle pasta of my entire 3-week Italian trip. Truffles are regional to the northern part of Italy, and coupled with the unique pasta selections offered at this restaurant, made for a truly unique and memorable dining experience.

As an added bonus, it was also one of the lower-priced restaurants I dined at, but definitely the most delicious.
