If you're looking for a place with authentic food made in house (like the pasta) Osteria Permalico should be top of your list. My partner and I have been in Italy for two weeks and this is by far the tastiest and most reasonably priced...More

Fortunately, we happened to find this little gem near the campo. Wonderful, local food, not the overpriced cliché stuff from all the tourist places. Very reasonable prices, small menu, extremely friendly staff. Will definitely come back while we're in Siena.

This was our favourite meal in Italy and amazingly good value for money. The house wine was nice and the pasta to die for. The staff were all so friendly and couldn't be more welcoming and helpful. We would definitely recommend.

On this extremely hot day in the middle of Siena we happened upon this small, hole in the wall osteria when we most needed a cool, friendly place to eat and replenish our strengths. They welcomed us in with cold bottles of tap water, freely...More

We happened upon Osteria Permalico whilst trying to find somewhere different for dinner. We were not disappointed. It looks a bit like the cavern for meals (it does have a jukebox!). This seems to be a two man operation and the owner is a real...More

We managed to get here for lunch without a booking on the day of the Palio. As you can imagine, everywhere was frantically busy and this place was no exception which meant we had to wait quite a bit longer than usual. That said, the...More
