Description: After a lot of workings a new management in one of the most beautiful corners of Siena. A small courtyard which is accessed through a small gate in Vicolo del Campaccio 2, next to the Sanctuary of Santa Caterina, will take you on a culinary journey in the name of tradition and modernity. Two young people with a great desire to experiment and invent propose a local and well taken bistrot with a various menu changing with the seasons. A lot of fish (always fresh) but also great meat, pasta and homemade bread, sweet temptations in name of quality. Self-production and looking for products strictly from our own organic and sustainable.

We've been looking for a place to have dinner at on a Saturday night and suddenly we found this hidden Osteria nearby the monastery of Santa Caterina.
The place itself is tiny and cosy. The waitress (Grazia) was nice and prepared, promptly answered all of our queries and went through a list of very good wines, through which we opted for one of the best Chianti I've ever had.
The cuisine is entirely made of typical Sienese dishes among which I would suggest the pappardelle with wild boar ragu, pici pasta with black pepper and cheese or the wild boar stew with polenta.

As the sign at the entrance says: "The difference between a typical restaurant and a Sienese restaurant"...enough said.

My Mother & I stayed at Hotel Alma Domus & were willing to venture anywhere in the city for a chance to enjoy gluten free pizza. Osteria il Campaccio is a hidden gem just around the corner!! The staff was INCREDIBLE. Friendly, accommodating, & eager to ensure we had a wonderful experience. The pizza was fantastic - better than any we've found in the states. Handmade by a chef who suffers from Celiac Disease. We made reservations to return the next day for tiramisu & pizzas prepared just for us!! The experience will be our favorite from our time in Siena! Spread the word - it's too special to keep to ourselves.

November visit. We were the only customers. Small place. Friendly. Atmosphere would probably be better with more diners. Radio was playing a football match commentary, which interfered with conversation at times. Food for meat eaters was great. For vegetarians/fish eaters, options on secondi piatti were very restricted. A good rustic pleasant meal.

We walked by this restaurant several times and were intrigued by the menu. We had dinner and were very impressed with the quality of the food in such a tiny place. The pear and pecorino pasta was delicious!!!!

This restaurant is situated under the arches of a cellar. There is also a little outside patio. We ate here eight times. And every time we rubbed the plates clean with a piece of bread. Pici alla agllione, Pizza Indiavolente, white cheese pizza’s, giant ravioli with cherry tomatoes. All excellent prepared and served by an all-female staff. Every evening we had the same problem; what to eat today and what to leave for tomorrow.
Around eight, place yourself at a table, order a carafe of red wine and one or two dishes, and flavours will explode in your mouth. And one hint, order a pasta dish an after that, you can order one pizza to share. So you can taste more and leave your plates properly empty.
