I booked the restaurant before it was close to the stadium and its parking, which was convenient for us. The terrace was packed by people, but the service was fast and efficient. The food was nothing to rave about, but good and tasty. With the discount based on Fork reservation, it was a real bargain for a quick lunch.

As part of our tour of Siena, lunch was included at this restaurant. Obviously, if we were on our own we may have had a better experience since serving a large tour group puts strain on the staff and kitchen. However, the service was unacceptable.

The food was fine, nothing special in our eyes. What was quite disturbing, our table of about 10 was served several bottles of wine. EVERY bottle was bad. They all smelled of sulfur. If you've ever had untreated well water, you know the smell. It was to be expected to be served cheap wine. However, we notified the waiter who seemed upset that we wanted to send back the wine. He took away the wine and brought back three more bottles. 2 of the 3 had the same problem. The waiter grew more agitated. What are we supposed to do? Drink wine that smells terrible at best and contaminated with something at worst?

I can barely remember what was served to eat because we were just ready to get up and leave without lunch. This place appears to be a bit of tourist trap - a restaurant in a prime location that doesn't need to spend time or attention on beating out the competition.

Pizza was acceptable, salad as well but far too big! Service very slow, toilet you wouldn't go ever and finally we got the wrong check after asking 3 times. There are many other typical Pizzerias in this very nice city but definitely not the favorite!

La Favorita is so enjoyable to come to. Amazing people and great food, drinks and gelato. Been here many times and always want to come back. Definitely need to check out when you’re in Siena.
