The dinner was absolutely amazing. We ordered from the special truffle menu which was outstanding. The food was very flavorful and creative. The mushroom risotto was served in a carved out peccorino cheese bowl and it was divine. My rabbit with truffles was also sublime. My husband had egg pasta with truffles that melted in your mouth and his guinea hen was so sweet, tender and sublime. The chef and all the staff were incredibly welcoming and really wanted to make sure the experience was perfect. The restaurant itself is in a building dating back to the 1400's and there are caves that descend 3 levels below with tables as well that date back thousands of years. The Chef pointed out the remains of the original wall of Siena running right through the space! It was better than visiting a museum. The prices were very reasonable and totally in keeping with a fantastic, upscale dining experience. The menu is so varied and inspired that there is something for everyone. Go and enjoy. It is well worth it.

We brought friends from Texas to this wonderful spot for dinner. We promised them a dining experience and the staff did not disappoint any of us. We sat in the first room, the food was excellent and service superb. We must have been having too much fun as the Italian woman sitting behind us kept staring at us rudely.

We have lived in Italy and traveled there many times, and my experience at Da Divo was still a first. The setting is unique, the food delicious and the service courteous. But when it came time to pay the bill we discovered that other Americans who did not speak the language and asked us for assistance were being charged twice for service. It is included in the price, but was added to there bill anyway. When one of the owners learned that she had been found out, she essentially told me to mind my own business. Too bad, would have gone there again but it left a bad taste in my mouth. Would still recommend it, just make sure you let them know that you know service is included.

This well know Siena restaurant is located inside a crypt. It's a few blocks away from the plaza.
The food is awesome. Four of us came here for lunch. Each one of us ordered something different, all the dishes were wonderful. Highly recommend this restaurant.

"Antica Osteria Da Divo" is definetely our best restaurant recommendation when we are visiting the wonderful city of Siena, and I often get the chance to join my friends for lunch at this amazing traditional "osteria". A top quality service is perfectly combined with a charming and fascinating atmosphere of the place (that was part of the etruscan cathacombs of Siena) and the food is what I like to define as the most refined expression of the typical tuscan cuisine, plus a genuine and super-smart touch of avantgarde in the way to serve every single dish. The best example is the truffle or porcini mushroom risotto that's served out of a pecorino cheese form.
No better way to remember how good is Siena's local food. Top notes!
