After a day of exploring beautiful Siena, we found this restaurant in a somewhat more quiet street. The restaurant looks cosy, with a lot of fresh ingredients on display. The antipasti we had as a starter was great, a good display of all the different cheeses and meats which they have here. The ravioli I ordered afterwards was almost perfection,... More

There is Fresh and tasty pasta. I ordered tortelloni. It was amazing. Sweet White wine also good. Nice designed place in narrow street in Siena. Really recommend it!

We made reservations and the owner{chef} was called by his wife and told that he had people coming in for dinner and he was ready to close and go home because his pantry was wiped out from a busy Friday and Saturday. So the menu selection was rather limited to what he had on hand. We did have an enjoyable... More

Stumbled in just when they opened. We were the only people there all night but the food was amazing and priced well. 2 primi plus a shared pasta and main along with a liter of wine for 45 euros!

We were there first for a lunch and returned back for dinner too since there are so many delicious food to taste there. The service is quite quick compared to our other Italien experiences and the food is really great. It is impressive that you can pick your second course from the counter. Great place!

We just happened to walk into this restaurant on our way into Siena from the parking lot near the train station. We were the lucky ones. While we waited for our lunch, we were served free crostini. We had gnocchi with pesto, pici cacio e pepe and ravioli with butter and sage. All were wonderful. And it was a very... More
