Highly recommend this spot for a great Italian meal. We were staying up the street at Borgo Scopeto and made the drive down, but even if you're staying in Siena, it'd be worth the trip. The husband and wife team running the show do a fantastic job, very welcoming atmosphere, food was fantastic, great pastas, and the meats were also quite good. The service really stands out though, Roberta made us feel so welcome, it really was like going over for a family dinner with a relative, she made some excellent wine recommendations and walked our ignorant American family through the menu which was in Italian. Price-wise it wasn't super cheap, but also not memorably expensive, right where you'd expect for good home cooked food. It can get busy, so reservations would be a good idea during the high tourist season.

I visit this restaurant each time I am in Siena even though it is a few kilometers down the road from Siena. They focus on the freshest local ingredients including local wines - and you can taste the care. The food is inventive and absolutely delicious. The owners - Gianluigi (in the kitchen) and Roberta (front of the house) take wonderful care of you. (They fixed a special pasta dish for me with truffles when I was there in March.)

On one of my first visits there I met a couple from the US that visit the restaurant annually. They make sure they are there on an evening when fresh pici is available. I was surprised that they came back each year - but after one meal I realized why. I have now visited the restaurant 4 times in the last 5 years and if I'm close to Siena I make a special trip to go.
