We went here based on the reviews and 4.5 score here on Tripadvisor. And though the staff was very friendly and helpfull, the food was unfortunately not quite there yet. We had the tortellini and the risotto and it tasted okay, but we expected more.

Another great meal in Siena. It's hard, if not impossible, to find a bad meal in Siena. A group of us went to dinner here and I had the Ravioli Mushrooms. Everyone at dinner had nothing but "two thumbs up" . Great service too.
