“Bar 40 meters from Hotel Italia Siena.”

Reviewed 23 October 2017

We arrived on the noon train from Florence and checked into our Hotel Italia Siena. Walking out to get a bus at the Viale Cavour Stop, we saw the 10 Euro posted menu and customers in this bar.
We peered in, saw people eating pasta, and requested a menu. The man behind the counter simply pointed to the many bowls of prepared foods, and we noted an open table, so we ordered. Our spaghetti with seafood, cheese ravioli, and a glass of red wine made for a handy, tasty, late lunch and a good value, costing just 10 Euros.

The place is tiny, the price is too but the food portions are generous and everything is made by the owner. Traditional Tuscan cucina - don't miss his timballo di riso, his risotto con verdure and many pasta dishes - there are many vegetarian options and you can enjoy a glass or two of local wine. Very enjoyable and affordable. A treat.

Located a few doors from my hotel, I decided to give it a try, as I did not feel like tramping around looking for dinner. The place seems to be run by one guy, and definitely caters to the locals. There is no menu, just a display case of prepared dishes. You choose one, he ladles it onto a plate and pops it in the microwave. I went for some stewed veal and potatoes in a tomato based sauce, and found it extremely good! Served with fresh bread and a small carafe of vino della casa, Euro 12. I think I could have had more choices for the same price, but I was totally satisfied with what I had.

So glad we found this place. The manager does it all himself. The food was very well priced. Good variety, fresh, home made. On Fridays he has fresh seafood selection. Excellent value! We had all we could eat and more plus a bottle of wine for under 25€. For good food on a budget, this is a gem.
