On the Piazza Del Campo with great view of the square. Good pizza and salads. Free wifi. Take credit cards but not Amex (as is common in most of Europe). Good value for money considering where it is located.

We stopped in for a glass of wine and an appetizer as we were waiting for our tour ride. Our waiter, Oni, went above and beyond to make a recommendation and provide excellent service. The restaurant overlooks the plaza and has excellent views. Our zucchini appetizer was very tasty. It was stuffed with ricotta cheese and had a nice light... More

Sat outside on a warming evening. Stunning location with great history. Food was good (especially the tuna) as was the wine. Service was good but not overly so. Nice touch not always found these days was the offer of a digestif after we paid. Happy to return.

I visited her whilst on a tour as it seemed like a nice place for lunch. We unluckily came on a day that rained and the umbrellas had gaps in which wasn't the restaurants fault they happily moved us inside the restaurant as out tables had got too wet to use which was nice of them. The variety of food... More

We visited Sienna the week before the famous Palio horse race is run and ate lunch in the same piazza so location is spectacular. We were watching preparation for the race while we ordered but unfortunately it started to rain heavily just as we ordered our food and the umbrellas are designed more to keep out the sun than the...

I chose this restaurant because it was recommended by the hotel I was staying in and the recommendation was very good. The food was excellent and the view over the Piazza del Campo was magnificent. The service was also very good. This is the restaurant I would like to revisit.

The service is good and the starter was quite tasty, we had the assortment of Tuscan cold meats and mozzarella. However, I had the Scozzese pizza which is a white cream base, salmon and rocket. It was horrid. The salmon was chunks of it and it was cold out of the fridge. They took the pizza base with no sauce... More

We booked a table for an hour later when passing by one evening. This was the best experience of the staff and service. Our table overlooked the piazza which is one of the best places to spend a summer evening in Siena. We enjoyed an Aperol Spritz before choosing from the menu. We were given a nice mise en Bouche...

Had a great lunch here overlooking Piazza Campo in Siena! Lots of people watching, great food - tried several pizzas and pastas, all were delicious. Cold drinks, fine wine made for a great time. They do not rush you at all, so after a day of exploring, we truly enjoyed a little respite from the heat. Wait staff was very... More

Don't be in a rush and make the most out of you time relaxing and dining in the "Italian style". As Americans, we tend to feel that if we aren't in a rush then we're not doing something right. Therefore, we live in a "bun-on-the-run" world and don't truly have time to savor. My point in all this is that... More
