It s a simple place where you can have simple plates in relatively cheap prices.

The cook and the waiter are perfect but the food is medium (we had cold plate and pici pasta with anchovies ) and the red wine is a "NO". Low quality wine can really give you the worst hangover headache you experienced so far.

Siena is a tourist hot spot but this place is run by locals and for locals
Good value
Tasty food: they do not have full a la carte menu but rather a few variations of dinner of the day
Excellent service with a couple of guys working very hard to serve fresh food

Friendly, easy-going atmosphere, fresh food, excellent price ratio.
They serve platters of ham and cheese and have different vegetables. I'd recommend the cheackpea salad with mozzarella and herrings. Another must is the "finocchiona di cinta senese"!

We loved this place. It is small and there are few choices. But the food is excellent and it was so cheap! The antipasti was fantastic and the pasta was also supergood.

Fantastic experience. Restaurant full of locals, we wanted to eat in a place used by locals so as to have an authentic experience. They were very busy, but welcoming. Food simple but tasty.
