Gnocchi was stuffed with cheese and topped with the freshest tomato sauce. Unbelievable! A close second was a pasta like a penne but bigger with bacon and onions. Totally delish! Risotto was good but not the best. Do NOT miss the cannoli. The service was...More

Very good food in the center of Sienna. Good pasta & salads, the meat looked well as well. Very close to the Duomo or the Piazza del Campo, this is a very good choice, with a nice terrasse.

Great prices, great house wine (6eur for a liter), and super friendly staff! I ordered the tortellini with cheese and asperge sauce and was good. Compared to the other places in sienna I would really recommend this place.

The pici here is ridiculously delicious - it comes with sticky, rich ragu (yummmm!). Service was reasonably quick. We sat outside to take in the street atmosphere - they have large awnings to keep sun and rain off!
