We als stumbled upon this place when it started to rain. We were a group of 8 friends and were surprised how well we were served with the limited staff on duty. Tonio was a great host and even his wife, the chef, came to shake hand on our way out. Memorable.

My family and I stumbled on this place for a late lunch while trying to find parking a bit outside the city center, and we were very happy with the result. The owner Tontino (or something Tony-ish) was probably the nicest guy we met in all of Italy. He was absolutely thrilled to have us and so so friendly and... More

Tonio was a fantastic host for his Restaurant. The homemade past was great and the Caprese salad had the crunchiest and most flavorful tomatoes I have ever had. The complementary lemoncello and biscotti took the experience to a new level!

We started with a pasta dish with porcini mushrooms--deliciously prepared! Then, we had the grilled mixed fish dish, which entailed king prawn, calamari, and piece of Sepia. The dish was awesome; the king prawn was grilled to perfection--sweet and succulent. The owners Nino and Theresa (the cook) are very friendly, and DEFINITELY know what their doing. It isn't far from... More

I stumbled across this restaurant by chance and had some of the best pasta on my trip. The pici al ragu was just amazing - so rich and full of flavour!! Well worth finding it on your trip. The owner is absolutely lovely and though his English is not the best, there were no communication problems. Loved it!

Really our enjoyed our first night in Siena here. The owner was very welcoming and kind, and although there was a language barrier, he guided us through the menu. Did not feel pressured to over order, just felt he wanted to show us a great dining experience. Really enjoyed our pastas, had better steak elsewhere. Appreciated the authentic atmosphere!

If you're looking for a cozy place to try some typical dishes and Italian atmosphere, you should come here indeed. Run by a nice couple, with only a few locals to come. We haven't tried any pasta here, but the meat plates we chose were magnificent. La Donna knows how to cook indeed. And the nicest host/waiter makes the place... More
