Ate here in early August 2013, as a place for a quick bite before seeing the rest of Siena. Food wasn't very inspiring - the "pici" local pasta was so hard as to be uncooked, and the pizzas lacked any real taste. Service was not very attentive, even when the restaurant was half full at midweek lunchtime. Took three people 20 minutes (and constant asking) for the bill. The one bonus is the location, being less than a minute from Piazza del Campo. Wouldn't recommend or return in a hurry.

I went to this amazing "Osteria" in Siena, the food was excellent , Geraldo the owner so welcoming and the "panna cotta" the best I've ever had. Home made pasta called "pici". It is very close to Piazza del Campo.
I strongly recommend this to everybody. Enjoy!

A middle of the road review for this restaurant, had better and had worse. Veal was a bit tough but the home made pasta as well as the sauce were both very good. Might have caught them on a bad day as the place was swamped

Food was GREAT!!! And great price. We had two plates of the famous mussel, sprawn, shrimp linguini at 10€ each along with a half liter of white wine that was delicious for 6.50€ and a side salad and dessert to top it off. Our total came to $38.50€ which isn't bad for amount of food and the great taste of the pasta!! I left so satisfied!! One of my greatest meals in Italy! Also, the waiter was so nice that as my mom and I was finishing up our convo he offered the both of us a free shot of Italian liqueur. For no charge. It was such a kind gesture and the chef personally told us goodnight as we were leaving. Great restaurant and great staff!!! Will definitely visit again!
