“Great food and location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

Our large group of 11 sat outside this wonderful restaurant in the piazza del compo. The waitress was very friendly and the food was yummy. Everyone was happy with their meal, which with a group of 11 people is quite amazing. The bruchetta was the best that i had in italy, their pizzas are great as was the pasta! Also very affordable

“It's all in the Location!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

One of the best vantage points for out door dining at the centre of Siena. Could not book as the staff member who answered the phone did not speak English..so best to brush up on your Italian phrases.

Service was good, food was nice. Atmosphere was vibrant and the surroundings, very romantic.

Not a criticism of La Mossa specifically but a real problem for me is other diners who smoke..a lot..at the beginning, middle and end of their meal and it is pot luck who you are sat next to. We were moved by the kind waitress away from an Italian family who looked insulted, but I couldn't eat my meal in a cloud of smoke. This was a recurrent theme during our trip around Tuscany..guess you just have to get on with it as the views are usually worth it!

“Looking forward to a return visit to La Mossa when back in Siena”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

Certainly one of the best meals we had in Tuscany this summer. Super atmosphere, great setting on the Campo and very friendly and helpful service. They went out of their way to please. excellent food, with some original Italian dishes - more than just Pasta and Pizza (though they look really tasty). High quality with great flavours at a very acceptable price. House wine excellent. Meal cost £45 for 2 (starter and main) including 1 Litre of very good Red house wine. Portions so substantial didn't have a sweet - though I'm sure they would have been very good

“Affordable, friendly, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013 via mobile

Very nice place. You buy your food / drinks either at the entrance and eat inside, or you can also order from a small menu at the table. Food is good and priced very reasonably (and that's an understatement). And all this in a great location.

“Excellent lunch at Piazza del Campo - great value at a very low cost”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

This is the very best meal we have ever had in Siena. The restaurant is placed at the Piazza del Campo with a great view to the beautiful square. Lunch takes place indoor - lovely when it is hot outside - and dinner can be enjoyed outside - with a perfect view towards the tower and the piazza.

The food is lovely - the menu card is not too big but with a fine selection of antipasti, pizza, pasta and wonderful desserts. And we must say: THE QUALITY IS FANTASTIC. Everything is home made - fresh and delicious and served in the right size of portions. The staff makes you feel welcome - you are not 'just another turist' but you do feel like a guest they wish to give a pleasant experience.

The atmosphere is absolutely great. Indoor you find an original Tuscan style with ancient stone walls surrounding the small cosy tables - all nice and clean...... We really do recommend this restaurant!
