Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at L'Oro di Siena. The ambiance was lovely and quiet and Matteo was very kind, friendly and attentive. We split a few dishes and everything was just delicious. It was a very different experience from usual restaurants,...in a good way. Just so small and intimate. I would highly recommend!More

This was the by far the best meal we had on our trip to Florence, Milan, and Venice. Intimate atmosphere, kind attention to service, and home-cooked quality dishes that are simple, yet sophisticated at the same time. Must go. Should have a Michelin Star!

It is over 5 years since we last eat here and it is still a WOW experience, it only has 6 tables so you are guaranteed a personal experience.The son runs front of house with his great knowledge of the foods on offer and the...wines to match your choice and the mother is the chef. Last night we chose the croquettes in a rich tomato sauce (melt in the mouth) for mains the slow cooked turkey (rolled with meats/outstanding) the other was the rolled eggplant with a type of stuffing, again rich and perfect. This is personal fine dining experience and it is very good if you like different tastes and personal service at a very fair price, highly recommend booking.More

This restaurant was so good we ate here twice. Only 6 tables so you definitely want to make reservations. Our host, the owner, asked if he could recommend a wine once we decided on our meal…and he selected a lovely wine for us that was...perfect. Both appetizers and main courses are absolutely amazing in both taste and presentation. I’d eat here weekly if I lived in Siena! Please don’t miss out on this gem of a restaurant!More

We dined at four different restaurants for dinner during our stay in Siena. I have to say the food from appetizer, pasta and main course was the best at L'oro. The son of the chef (his mom) serves you. He is very friendly and helpful....Wine list is extensive and he recommended a perfect bottle for our choices. The pasta dishes were done perfectly. Al dente with just the right amount of sauce. My wife and I shared a rolled beef dish that melted in your mouth. The location is outside the walls of Siena. There is some street parking. We parked inside and walked out which was kind of dumb. The atmosphere at the other restaraunts we tried were better - La Taverna di San Guiseppe and Ristorante Mugolone but overall the food was the best at L'Oro. In fairness to the other two restaurants, I ordered a bad choice at La Taverna and my wife and I tried the signature steak of Tuscany at Mugolone and it was just too rare for us. Our bad. Not the restaurants fault.More

This wonderful, small restaurant is a real foodies pleasure. You will experience out-standing food, both in taste and presentation. Be looked after by the host, who with his font of knowledge and passion , makes a visit here into a memorable experience. I have never...eaten anywhere like this before, with out expecting it to be a Michelin starred restaurant. Probably the best lunch I have eaten in a long time. Good portion size as well, considering. Slightly off the beaten track, but definitely worth it. I would highly recommend eating here, if in Siena.More

London born and bred, I’ve spent years eating in ‘the London’ restaurants. Some great some not. L’Oro Di Siena would not only fit in but would stand out in London City. From the high end fit out, the well placed decor ornaments, through to the...food was exceptional. A family business clearly caring about the product not how much they make. The design of the establishment is echoed in the design of the food. Care, love and passion is in abundance, the ‘lone’ chef is very qualified for producing and presenting fine food. If I can I like to offer critique, I like to try and help if possible as a paying customer - here, there is nothing to improve on. Simply the best restaurant we have eaten in in a very long time. Thank you to Luppoli Matteo and his mama.More

This small, charming restaurant is located in an unexpected area of Siena. It is worth finding. There are only five tables so it won’t ever be crowded. The menu is interesting and the wine list is extensive. The owner/host is very eager to please and...the pride he has in his restaurant is apparent. The cooking is done by his mother, whom we haddthe pleasure of meeting. Speaking of the cooking, it is superb. The choices were beautifully presented and very special. Some dishes were traditional with a twist, others were innovative, but not overly done. In a word-perfection.More

From start to finish this was one the best overall experiences we have had dining. Mateo and his mother make their guests a priority. You feel welcomed from the moment you arrive. The pasta dish we had was outstanding. Not only was the food superb,...but the presentation was creative and artful. Amazing how one woman’s can prepare such lovely dishes. The wine service was superior. Let Mateo pick a glass of wine for each plate you order he knows which one will go best with the food. So glad we didn’t let finding parking stop us from coming here. When I return to Siena I will come back.More
