We stopped here for lunch on a Monday afternoon and enjoyed sitting outside to people watch. My pasta was good, and my fiance just raved about the spaghetti alle vongole. I would say it's a little pricey compared to other places we tried on our trip, but a fun little spot for dining "al fresco".

Look, the food was good, overall the price seemed fine. Now was clearly not a remarkable experience. Service is let s say very very average, spending more time on their phone than on looking at what s happening. Turned to be slighly noisy but more in an inconvenient way than in a fun way.

Walking around Siena we found this little restaurant on a side street near the Palazzo Publico. It only has 5 tables inside and 7 outside. The service was good. The food was also good but nothing special. The antipasta portion was small compared to other restaurants in Siena. The ravioli in beef sauce and the pork in pepper sauce were... More

I would start this review by saying that we rarely have a truly negative experience on our travels, and on our current trip to Italy we have been met with unfailing friendliness and courtesy. This restaurant is appalling. Let me start with the environment - grubby, drab, strip-lighting. The food is at best mediocre - my partner couldn't eat his... More

The restaurant is in a small alley of one of the main streets of Siena. It's quiet and has a nice service. The food was good and was served quickly. The menu was good and they also offered daily specials. Good for a lunch in busy Siena.

Great place for hard to find Italian pizza in Siena. Wide ranging menu of options, decent wine list and an average, but approachable rosso house wine.

In a shady side street Il Sasso was the coolest cafe we could find on a blisteringly hot Monday in late July. The food was fine and the service was so so. Their well chilled house white was the best thing we sampled. Oh, did I mention the shade?

Tucked away on one of the many side streets this is a little gem. If you get chance take one of the tables outside and sit and enjoy seeing people walk by. Your enjoyment will be increased with the excellent food served at your table.

Very bad service and mediocre food. Keep looking, you're in Italy where you should never have a bad meal. They forgot one main course until the rest of the table was finished eating.

Placed in a little street it looked cozy! The decor and building gives a great setting for the restaurant! We ordered pizza to eat quick but it took 1.5 hour to get through the system! Service slow and forgot part of our order!
