We arrived and several minutes later some people sat down next to us. They were treated much better (all I know is they spoke Italian fluently). They were finishing their dinner after they had had their appetizer about the time we got our appetizer. Our waiter abandoned his post right after taking our order and never returned. We saw him running down the street shouting after someone. It was quite interesting.
Someone tried to fill in, delivering our food, but we had zero attention after our order was taken. Haven't had such poor service ever before. The one redeeming fact was the food was pretty good.

The restaurant is simple, but the food is very good and everyone is nice!! The house wine is very good! I do recommend the restaurant!

After a long day of sightseeing and travelling we were looking for somewhere to eat with my slightly finicky mother in law. This little gem down a side street appealed and we had a excellent meal. The waiter was slightly scatty but a really great character who made us feel welcome. My beef with rosemary was superb, my wife's pasta dish was excellent and mum in law had a chicken and salad dish which she wolfed down. This was will washed down with beer, wine, water, coffee and grappa over a very leisurely evening. To be recommended!

Tucked down a tiny side street about 30 seconds from the main square. Food was excellent, particularly mozzarella and tomato starter which was superbly fresh.
Wonderful service from very friendly staff.

Little hole in the wall restaurant in Siena, which looked fine until we got our appetizer of bruschetta which was very hard and void of taste. The awaited jokingly advised not to order the lasagna after we had ordered it, and it was not very good at all. The waiter at least was in good humor , but could not make up for the meal.
