The array of hams, sausages and vegetables hanging above the food counters were a harbinger of an excellent lunch consisting of a mixed plate of warm and cold antipasto - great selection, tasty and satisfying. The friendly staff cautioned us against ordering one each, and it proved that sharing was indeed the better option and of course kinder on our wallet. Proprietors Bobbe and Davide personally supervise matters and their attention to detail and high standards makes this a definite recommendation.

We had a mixed cheese and cured meat plate here and I have no complaints about that. The foods were all from the region and carefully thought out, eg the cheeses ranging from young to old. The Chianti we had with the plate was delicious, although I don't think you'd go here if you're looking for an extensive selection of wines by the glass.
We found the ambiance a bit strange because a woman, whom I assume is the co-owner/wife, was carrying their baby around the entire time, talking to tables, playing with her, etc. Cute baby or not, it's just not the type of thing one is always in the mood for when going out for a romantic glass of wine. Some background music would have been nice, too.

Nice atmosphere as well as great service .
Wine was very good, the food was excellent.
This was a fine lunch break during a day trip to Siena and was very well enjoyed.

Claudio took such good care of us during a downpour rain storm. We were able to huddle in and enjoy the best recommended wine, cheese, anti pasto, and the cutest baby that we have seen all week. Highly recommended to any one, any where- do not pass this place up!
