My wife and I loved the food, we ordered an artichoke as appetizer, and a home made spaghetti as main course, the spaghetti was amazing.i recommend.

“Food average, service indifferent, price reasonable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014 via mobile

We were attracted by the menu which looked more interesting than the other rather "Samey" restaurants around, and to be fair the food came promptly and was reasonably good and different from the usual. However the service was bad, the waitress did warm up a little but the waiter appeared not to care at all, tried to remove plates before we had finished and we would not go again

“Great location but food not outstanding”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

When traveling to high tourist areas like Sienna, I usually scout out places to eat ahead of time but did not this time. This was in a great location, right in the center of town. We were hungry and in need of a break and this met our needs but is not on our list of "must go again" places. The service, as I have noticed in other reviews, was not very warm. I assume it might be because I was traveling with three (extremely polite) teenagers...which does not always delight wait staff (e.g. no wine) but perhaps it was standard fare. The pasta was fresh and good, the atmosphere was very pleasant and charming. With a little more attention -- could be outstanding.

“could be better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

We tried this restaurant with quite good prices and nice menu..as we didn't find anything better around. We ordered grilled cheese 'Tomino..' 6€ like a starter which was nice but nothing special. Then slices of beef 'Tagliata' 9€ and something like a beef meat cake 9€ with apple pure. The beef was gummy and the cake was kind of basic. Till now still ok, waiter probably tired, the other one was nice. Well..just the price of 'vino della casa' - home wine 15€ was surprising..it wasn't in the menu and as we know that usual price is about 4€/0.5l this was shocking for 0.7l. Not worst experience but would probably not go there again.

“A very fine lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

this very fine restaurant is well hidden but very near the center of the city; the food was very good...the risotto was outstanding; the service was a bit surly early on but warmed up later; the ambiance was typical of an Italian family restaurant...I would return.
