We stumbled across this restaurant by wandering the streets and squares of Siena. What a gem!
The food is great, the waiter so helpful, knowledgeable about the food, house wine excellent and priced very reasonably. We whiled away our last hours there too and it was fantastic, no rush, they remembered us from the last time, which when you see the turnover of customers was nice. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant. Open kitchen too!

Was late lunch or early dinnertime: looks out down the hillside, with a few cars parked in the way that are eAsily overlooked. The staff was super, the food better. I had the wild boar, my wife the spinach and ricotta ravioli, which had a sauce so exquisite I had to talk to the chef! Which I did in my broken Italian and with the help of the bilingual staff. I can now make misti fungi sauce! Go there if you want to learn. Also, we got free lemon cello, a starter, a beer, full bottle of wine and 2 mains for 38euro.

Another mainstay with the tourist crowd. Has been around for awhile. Located in back of the Campo, it is located basically in a large public parking lot. Crowded and noisy. Specializing in home cooking, the full menu is average, as is food. Staff very accommodating. Ample portions, moderately price -- hence the draw. Manu, much better dining spots in Siena
