Quiet, good service, delicious starters (Picis, risotto, paccheri ...). Highly recommended, good price and out of crowd. Coffee so good that it bears repeating. People very friendly. To return.

Thank miquelamor

“Good "ordinary local" food”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

Little restaurant with nice and ordinary food. Nothing special - but absolutely not bad at all. We tried the home made lasagne and risotto and that was very well prepared and tasted good. We also tried the chicken but that was a little to dry. The price level was fine compared with quality and service. Good recommendations from my side.

Thank Allan J

“Incredible food, local vibe, lovely staff.”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We were recommended to go here by our airbnb host. The staff were friendly, the food was incredible, it was exactly what we were looking for a special dinner in Siena. We had beautifully cooked potted rabbit & delicious liver on toast to start followed by an incredible bistecca fiorentina (1.2kg!) cooked perfectly with 2 sides (flageolet beans & spinach) - both of which were delicious. Service was a little slow and the sides were a bit late but we didn't mind as the food was wonderful and the staff were very hospitable (especially in dealing with our pigeon Italian!) Price-wise it was very decent for the quantity and quality of food we received. Would DEFINITELY go again.

“Fantastic Italian food”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

This was recommend by Hotel Santa Caterina and it was a great recommendation. The hotel made reservations for us, but they really were not needed, but since we had them, we had a better table. The service was great and the food was also great. They also were the only restaurant that on our first visit, they split our dinners to 2 plates. And did not charge us for that. The 2nd time we visited, they did not do this, but the service and food was great. And for us, this was a great location since it was right down the street from Hotel Santa Caterina. Would return to this restaurant again.
