Called in here early one evening around 6.30/7.00 very quiet. Service therefore was good and the food came out quickly, we were not that hungry so only have a main course. I can recommend the restaurant, reasonable prices.

My friend had pasta with truffles and I had pasta with meat. We both enjoyed our meals a lot. The price was modest. We did not have to wait very long.

After sightseeing in this beautiful City we were starting to flag. We didn't fancy the restaurants around the main square and so were delighted to find San Desidererio in a quiet spot near the Duomo. From the moment we entered the bustle of Siena faded...More
