We found this restaurant on TA and wanted something a little off the main tourist path. It was a cosy little restaurant with very warm and friendly service. Clearly a family effort with the gorgeous matriarch proud in place. The food was very nice and the house wine very reliable. We would go again for the warm service alone. We left very full!

Heard great remarks about this ristorante, so we took a chance without a reservation and waited 25 minutes for the doors to open. The server greeted us warmly and presented an appetizer on the house that was excellent.

Ordered the entrecôte al tartufo and it was divine, as was the fagioli side dish. The bocconcini da pollo porcini was flavorful and covered in porcini mushrooms.

There is a 15% service charge, but considering the experience it is well worth it.

We were recommended to this restaurant and not disappointed. In a quiet street and pleasant change from the tourist spots. Not tat cheap but we enjoyed the food and wine and service. Would have gone back for dinner if we'd been staying longer.

My daughter and I ate here twice in 3 days last week, we loved it so much! We also dined at a much more highly rated trattoria, and the service was horrible...so we came back.They treated us like family, and the service was 12 out of 10! (Might have helped my daughter speaks fluent Italian, which always surprises servers). For a very reasonable price you can have a lovely pasta-we loved the truffle cici (a sort of local fat spaghetti noodle)-huge slices of truffle! Also the caccio di pepe was fantastic. House white or red was excellent and so cheap! Insalata mista so big we couldn't finish even though sharing. And the desserts, torta de la nonna and pannacotta again delicious and so generous. When we finished eating they dropped the limoncello and another digestivo on the table, just left the bottles for us to enjoy as they knew we'd only taste a bit, but their kind generosity was so appreciated. If we were staying in Siena longer I'd have hesitated to share the secret of these guys, for fear of everyone discovering them. They are just a short walk off the Piazza del Campo. Just wish I'd tried a ragu, bet it would be fantastic.
