We loved the underground setting in a wine cellar, made of bricks, just off the main square, an attraction in itself. The restaurant has two cellar rooms, and the customers are quickly absorbed into the local culture by the owner, Ercole, who speaks to everyone and advises on the best choice. The homemade pasta is excellent, the meat and food is cooked perfectly, the veal steak with Porcini mushrooms succulent and we liked the distinctive flavour of Tarragon, bright and delicious. The house white (Malvasia) did the trick. Others in the group had stuffed cabbage, pici with wild boar meat and ravioli with truffle oil and mushrooms were all wonderful. The food is simple and well presented, non-pretentious food and warm service - marvellous.

Great location. Local visitors. Excellent host. Excellent food. Our host was extremely kind and friendly giving great advice. Had a great bottle of Rosso di Montofalco - great value.
We were treated with an amazing starter (house speciality) --> pappa al pomodoro.. truly amazing. I tried at several other places afterwards but nothing like this one. We had a pici -- cacio e pepe, pici d'agnello (amazing meat sauce), pappardelle al tartufo -- all were amazing flavours. Truly home cooking. We finished the steak - w tarragon to share.
Net net I highly recommend this place. Great food, great value.

An exceptional neighborhood Tuscan restaurant. Not fancy. Not haute cuisine. Just very, very good food. Sauces enhance the taste and does not overwhelm the pasta. Second courses are fresh with meat and chicken tender. Service might not be quick, but you are not in Siena for "fast food." Order the house wine; it's very good and be sure to ask the waiter/owner to recommend an amaro to finish the dinner.

The owner is very friendly and welcoming. Understand that the staff is small, and so he is primarily handling table service.
Food was very good and very reasonably priced. I think most guests were tourists, but it didn't feel "touristy".
I recommend for couples that are casual; this will not appease those requiring more attention.
