The place was filled with locals and we thought it must be a good sign. It was!! Could not have loved it more. Every bite was excellent! And the service could not have been better. Warm, friendly service. Only wish we could have stayed longer.

This little place is my first choice for food in Siena! I absolutely love it and have probably eaten there 8 times in the last month. It's a small, modest, family run restaurant with seating inside and a few tables outside. The menu is just...More

My parents ate lunch here while we explored Siena. They said the food was fantastic and they enjoyed the interactions with the owners. We joined them for drinks and enjoyed the peace of the street just yards from the madness of the main drag.
