The restaurant may rate highly for various dishes but not for pizza, in our opinion. We ordered one calabrese and one capricciosa. We have had far better elsewhere in Italy. There was no attempt to add any local spices to the pizza other than the toppings so the overall effect was blandness. The crust was "robust" as my wife said. With a half litre of house red and a litre of mineral water the bill came to €25.30 (including cover charge of €4.40).

We were actually looking for a different place recommended by tripadvisor, but apparently most places only open at 7 pm and it was still one hour before that. As we walked by "Fonte giusta", the place was already open with a handfull of people sitting outside.

The service wasn't exactly the quickest, but very friendly and we were able to place our orders in English. We had two great appetizers (prosciutto crudo and bruschette), two main courses of pasta, wine, caffè and one liter of water, and ended up paying EUR 38. We had a great time and would go there again - if there were weren't so many other interesting places in Siena. The food was good and definitely worth the price. Also, the Via Camollia is a great place to sit outside in the summer and watch people walking by.

I think my title says it all. Meals were awful, the worst by some distance in Tuscany. It also had perhaps the worst service I've ever had, main meals coming out whilst we are still eating our starters, I had to help clear our own table incorrect bill; they couldn't even be bothered to ask how our meals were or ask if we wanted to have dessert. With so many great places in Siena, why eat here?

We lunched here and enjoyed a good meal with good house wine. It was busy so the staff weren't as attentive as desirable but nevertheless a good experience.

We ate here three times during our stay and each time they did not disappoint. Their pici and wild boar is exquisite and salami antipasta is divine. I absolutely love this place - definitely one of the highlights of eating out in Siena!
