Excellent authentic Italian food, unfussy and delicious, just like homemade. Would highly recommend the porcini mushroom risotto and the oscobucco. Generous portion sizes as well. Excellent service. We will be back next time.

We found this restaurant by complete chance while being lost in Siena streets. It was our lucky day! The food was incredibly good. You could clearly feel it was homemade food, and when we saw the grandma coming out of her kitchen we understood why it was so good. It seems like it's a family owned restaurant, the staff was...

We stumbled upon Taverna di Cecco tonight, march 1, after hunting in vain for a place to eat dinner. They have some pretty focused times to be open, around 3 hrs for lunch and 2-3hrs for dinner. Plus several places are closed since season has not started. My wife and I plus one other lone diner were the only customers.... More

Tagliatelle ragu was fantastic. We were given a free dish to begin with (wish I knew the name, but this contained tomatoes, celery, cheese) and this was amazing too. Would definitely go back, and has been the best single meal in Italy so far. Highly recommended.

Small Osteria with good and kind service, traditional quality food, simple but pleasant location. The beef (tagliata) with porcini was amazing and everything served welcoming hosts, also during New Year's Eve dinner that was crowded. Recommended.

We stumbled upon this place when doing a day trip to Siena. It is a tiny taverna, but they quickly found us a seat. We were served their signature panzanella which was amazing and complementary. The service was great and the waiter knew enough English to help us decipher the menu. I had the most delicious gnocchi and my friend... More

"Inflated" Caprese (very small) with lettuce. Greasy gnocchi. OK wine, OK water (!). I have no problem with the 15% extra as they don't charge "coperto", but the food is, at best, mediocre.

When we first sat down we were given the complimentary panzanella (Italian bread tomato salad). It was very good and a nice surprise. For dinner we had Chicken alla Cacciatora, which was excellent. We loved the atmosphere. The service was just fine. It's a warm, cozy taverna. Perfect. Enjoy!

We passed this place twice before eventually deciding to give it a go, it looked a bit more traditional than all the others with their "Touristico Menu".... We were not disappointed. Great local cuisine, Tuscan hams, wines, truffles (Tagliatelle Tartofu) mushrooms (Risotto) The owner was very friendly and welcoming. It's a very small restaurant so you are close to neighbouring...
