About
From love for the earth and for its extraordinary products born SIENA TRUFFLES, a small but lovely shop of typical products based on truffles, opened right in the heart of Siena, on the corner of Piazza del Campo, the heart of Tuscany's most charming . After 15 years of passion for truffles, carried out in the forests of central Italy in the company of dogs faithful and well trained, we decided to give a home to what for me was a great passion, but which for many was and is always one of the highest peaks of Italian, so famous all over the world thanks to valuable products such as truffles. From the earth to the table in short, to satisfy the most experienced demanding, from fresh product just found (whether trifola or scorzone) to the various sauces made with truffles, creams, all 'truffle oil until the brandy truffle and traditional pasta, also obviously enhanced by truffle. All in the name of "Made in Italy", pursued with determination and conviction as a fundamental value.

    Wonderful experience
    This was a wonderful experience from start to finish, Alessandro is such a nice guide and just human being. Watching him with his dogs is heartwarming, and of course the hunt itself is very exciting! The location, the timing, is all perfect. And his shop in Siena, where he provides the tasting, provides a great atmosphere to really feel the truffle experience and get some quality products for home. Thank you!
    Grazie Aziza, I hope to see you again in Siena.

    Truffle hunt, tasting and new friends!
    A completely unforgettable experience! Alessandro is a master of his craft. We met at 8:30am and did a 90min truffle hunt, led by his expert dogs Moka and Freddy, they helped us find 15 truffles!!! We then met up with Alessandro at his shop in Siena and tasted the most incredible products and toured the city. If you are a lover of fine foods this is a bucket list type experience. Thank you Alessandro, Moka and Freddy!! Greg, Isabelle and Victor from Montreal :-)
    thank you beautiful family! Alessandro

    Perfect truffle hunting experience
    Truffle hunting was on my bucket list and I'm glad I was lucky enough to go with Alessandro and Moka. The love he has for his dog and job is really more of a passion. A few hours in the forest near the city and we foraged both white and black truffle. I wanted to have an authentic experience and I was not disappointed.

    Muddy and exciting truffle hunting
    What a wonderful time truffle hunting with Alessandro! He picked me up from the Porta Romana and we drove a mere 10 minutes to the property where we took Moka out in search of white truffles. We found way more than I ever anticipated. He’s very knowledgeable about truffles - I loved learning about the growth cycles, how he trains the dogs, among other nuggets of knowledge. After trudging through the forest, he hosted me at his little shop where I had the opportunity to taste several of his products. Obviously it was all delectable! Would recommend this for someone who is looking for a unique experience, willing to run after Moka and get a little muddy.

Alessandro, Freddie and Moka were amazing! This was an experience of a lifetime! It was pure excitement hunting with all of them. Alessandro's store wasn't open yet, but he took the time to open for us and give us a tasting and let us purchase some amazing truffle items to bring back home and share! The weather was wonderful and the hunt was very successful! We now have a deep appreciation for truffles because of this experience. Alessandro has alot of knowledge and made the trip not only fun, but a learning experience. This is a must do experience!

Most amazing discovery in Siena.

Alessandro's shop was recommended to me by a business partner on LinkedIn.
I rushed to buy some truffles and it was wonderful to meet Alessandro, have a chat with him and buy some of these ground diamonds.

I was able to prepare delicious meals with the white and black truffles.

Totally recommend it;

We were not able to participate in the truffle hunting experience, but plan to do so in the future. That said, if you are looking to learn about truffles or just wish to buy truffles / truffle products, this is the place! Alessandro is very knowledgeable and friendly. He has the highest quality products, good prices and is happy to let you sample products so you can choose which you like best. Highly recommended!
