Went here for the seafood ( and both females - wife, daughter) wanted seafood. Sat night in Sept. We booked but didn't need to. Sitting at 8pm we were seated in what I presume is the grotto which is essentially Real Estate speak for essentially a large , rock air raid shelter, however it was ok.Atomosphere was ok - there were 3 other tables filled in our area and about 4 other tables in another area. Service was good and they put up with our very poor Italian efforts to order. I am a meat lover but chose the seafood - had the squid for starter which was good - daughter had the mushroom gnocchi , which was cooked well, the missus can't remember what she had but did enjoy it. The seafood mixed grill was fine. Wife - a seafood lover said food was great.

My significant other and I were looking for a place to eat on a Friday night in Siena. We were able to walk in with no reservations and be seated by a wonderful host - however over the course of the 1.5hr we were there only 2 other tables that were seated. The atmosphere wasn't great and the food was average - however the prices were reasonable for what you were served.
At the end of the evening we were satisfied however will not return.
If you are looking for a place to be seated immediately and pay a reasonable amount for your meal then this is the place to go.
Must note: staff was very friendly and service was prompt.

My wife and I had a very nice meal in this restaurant. The fresh seafood was delicious and the service was very friendly. Definitely worth going down the escalators (San Francesco) to outside the city walls if you are a seafood fan. The wine list is also great and the overall price quite fair.
