Once again, we weren't expecting much, and weren't disappointed. The Caffe is on the main thoroughfare through Siena' Old Town and, as such, frequented only by tourists who don't know any better. Our excuse was that we were hungry after a long day trudging around the city and too tired to look for anything better.
The arrival of the plastic knife and fork, after we had placed the order, set the tone. (If had arrived before we had ordered, we would have been out of there quick smart.) The spaghetti carbonara was okay, but the mixed salad was replete with wilted lettuce straight from the packet and as limp as overcooked pasta.
And when we went to pay - after failing to persuade anyone to bring the bill to the table - we were told that they don't take credit cards.

My husband and I popped into Nuovo Caffe Greco for a quick bite to eat at lunch time. The service was fine, but the plastic cutlery and beyond wilted bits of lettuce will prevent us from darkening their doors again. We were further disappointed to discover that it was a cash only business.

This is the place to go for a pit stop salad or panini. It is good value and used by lots of Italians. We also had a breakfast and stopped for coffees. Ideal for lunch just off the Piazza without being charged the earth

Another Italian cafe that could be so much better if the sandwiches were fresh. The Focaccia bread tasted like it was yesterday's. The prices are reasonable for Siena. I'd recommend looking over the offerings and determining if they are fresh.
