Had lunch and this was probably one of our better lunches we had, We had a Primi Piatti, Panino Farcito and pizza with sweet corn.... More

We popped in here to rest our feet and to have a couple dips of gelato. The gelato was wonderful and it was a wonderful place to stop and watch the world go by. They were certainly selling lots of slices of pizza. Great gelato and nice and clean.

This restaurant seems to be the fastest to grab lunch. The gelato was excellent, one of the best we had.

Perfect spot for a mid afternoon stop to rest your feet. Not a religious experience, but your feet will like it. This was day 21 of our Greek Gods and Italian Saints Tour

We ordered calzone and the majority of it was pastry, not much filling and unfortunately the inside was cold. A bit expensive for the food they sell

We found this cafe clean, friendly, freshly prepared food and great service. Wine by the glass was good. We thoroughly enjoyed this spot for a lunch break in Siena.

Stopped in first for a gelato, which was delicious, then returned later for lunch, which was also delicious. Owner Marco and his family were very welcoming and accommodating. We shared a very pleasant conversation and would recommend this pizzeria/gelateria for anyone looking for respite, sustenance, and friendly service in a clean and bright setting. Free Wi-Fi.

Total tourist trap. Food is bland and cold. Skip this joint and find somewhere authentic rather than this microwaved food.
