Sitting at this restaurant and have been served the most hideous piece of veal in my life. Either defrosted in the microwave, pounded to death? But still lumpy and served bloody rare. The sauce around it is orange fat. Probably the worse meal I've eaten in Italy. Really disappointing.

We had a wonderful afternoon in Siena and dined here for lunch. I had a basic and tasty ravioli and red sauce and hubby had a ravioli with pecorino baked that was rich, but fantastic. Would def go back.

We visited cosy and pleasant La Taverna del Capitano in the center of historical city of Siena. This restaurant is situated on the short walking distance from the famous Piazza Duomo. It is opened in convenient time and attracts us by its home made pasta, bread and wine. But all our positive mood from the restaurant has gone at the... More

Very typical Sienna inn. Food is excellent. Environment is also typical from Siena, the walls are covered with pictures of the Palio and the local Contrada. Service is great, that evening the inn was full though the owner managed to get a table for us.

Lovely local taverna serves great local food with rustic casual feel. Shared family tables and entertaining waiters add to atmosphere. Food and wine recs by the staff were great....had a great lasagne that was so soft fluffy and full of flavour. Washed down with local chianti. Just down from the Duomo But at reasonable prices.

This is a great little restaurant near the Duomo. The food was great, prices fair and less touristy than piazza campo. The staff was super helpful with our non-italien speaking ability. Always nice with a restaurant with a clean and accessible toilet.
