This was the best meal we had in our 10 days touring Italy. Outstanding quality, and atmosphere. Planning another trip back to Siena just to dine here!

Tucked away down a side street you could easily miss this little gem. Lovely food and really great staff, I'm so glad we stopped by. This was one of our best meals in Siena.

A lovely romantic restaurant with a modern type of Italian - fresh, somewhat light and with loads of flavor. The service was fantastic - so warm and smiling! We had a really wonderful meal and will defendly come back when we return to Italy.

Just back from dinner at this restaurant. Very disappointed, given the rave reviews on tripadvisor. Bland and tasteless are the descriptions I would use for the food, and their attitude was pretty uncooperative to dietary requirements: a request for no dairy products was met with...More

We were sent here on the recommendation of a local truffle seller around the corner (Siena Truffle, on one of the streets off the Piazza del Campo). We had the bruschetta as a starter, and you could tell the service was going to be good...More
