“Sublime Risotto with Ricci”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

On a recent visit to Siena, we stopped in at Casato Enoristorante for lunch. It made us sorry we couldn't be around for supper to try the tasting menu! Lunch was fabulous! My husband concentrated so much on his dish that he can't even remember what I had (it was pici con cinghiale – pasta with wild boar sauce). He ordered risotto with oysters and spumante but they were out of oysters. Instead (after his approval) they substituted risotto with ricci (sea urchin). This was a sublime dish. The wine list was outstanding. This lovely place is just off the famous Campo but was not clogged with tourists. On the other hand, we felt the menu prices were not particularly high, and considering the quality of the food, were an actual bargain. Highly recommended!

“Fabulous food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

Excellent Tuscan food! We both had a pork dish meat perfectly cooked and presented, the side dishes of baked potatoes with rosemary and grilled vegetables were to die for!! We didn't have wine with our meal but the wine list is extensive including the famous Brunello wines. We didn't have any room left for deserts as the meal was a good size,they make great coffee too!!

“wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014

I have been in Siena with my wife and son for about 30 times in the last 6 years and everytime we are there we try to visit it.
Each time it is a diferent experiance.
Nevertheless this time it was something even better than the previous times.
If you are looing for a serious dinner in the area you must NOT loose the chance to have one of the best Italian dinners you can have.
Forget the typical touristic pizzas and pastas. This is reall Tuscany food.
For childeren it is not very easy but it is also for them an experiance of high quolity food.
