We arrived at the opening time of 7:00pm and were the only 3 people dining. The waitress was charming explaining the food in detail. The mixed Tuscan cheeee and bread starter was exquisite. The main course of speciality Tortelloni was out of this world. The restaurant now had a couple of ladies dining and a party of 10 others. Both... More

We had a beautiful meal here served with great finesse and care. It touched lightly on the fact that this restaurant specialises in presenting medieval dishes in a medieval setting. Sometimes there is the opportunity to eat downstairs in the deep cellars. This is an adventure worth having. The only minor quibble.....the classy setting and theatrical presentation of tasty food...

The restaurant is quite cool, the staff is very friendly, but the food is far from what you would expect for the price...We took the menu, and the courses were coming way to quick, we had a 6 courses menu in one hour!! that's how quick they were in serving!

We visited on a very quiet evening, but enjoyed excellent food and good service. They were very accommodating since we made reservations right as they opened for the evening. It was the best combination of starters, main course, desert and wine that we had while in Tuscany. Good value for the quality of food we received.

We ate here twice on our stay in Siena - mainly because I am gluten intolerant and found that many of the restaurants were closed for the off season so found it very hard to find good options for lunch and dinner - however both times were lovely. Our waitress, Martina, was very helpful and more than happy to make... More

We ate there twice (which already tells you something). We were a large party so booked by phone from the UK, and again once we had eaten there. Most of the staff speak very good english.

Had a very enjoyable dinner in this restaurant. Very nice atmosphere in what appears to originally be old stables. Great wine selection and food was very good. Staff seemed rushed with limited English to help explain the various choices on the menu. Probably would have enjoyed it more with a little more attention to the client....felt rushed to place our...

I was here for the second time with a group and the interior is very authentic and very friendly staff. We had set menues and as always in Italy, we are fed more than we can possibly eat but always good food.

A wonderful union of flavors and suggestions that will remind you the charm of the Middle Ages. Very close to the famous Piazza del Campo, in the heart of the historic center of Siena, you will find the exclusive Restaurant Gallo Nero. The atmosphere is very cozy and hospitable, like a typical Tuscan home.Mauro Tigli - owner of the restaurant and chef of great experience and imagination, is here for turning on the taste of your palate with its extraordinary menu of traditional and medieval cuisine and Sienese and Tuscan recipes. Behind it all is a strong passion for the local products, personally selected by the chef from the meats to cheeses, from vegetables to homemade pasta. Excellent wine list with over 50 labels of the highest level ready to satisfy all your needs. In the upper floor, you will find a private, intimate and welcoming, of absolute elegance. The decor is characterized by a refined minimal design. An exclusive space where to celebrate an important occasion such as your birthday or your graduation party. Organize a lunch or dinner, attend a cooking class or a guided tasting of Tuscan wines, or simply spend a happy and convivial moment with your friends or your family.
