Every visit to Siena leads us to Nonna Gina for a quick lunch. The Osteria sits at the end of the Via della Città, some 500m away from the (over)crowded Piazza del Campo. The place is rather small but offers traditional dishes which are served...More

Limited outdoor seating, but excellent local dishes and prices. Menu in Italian only so help was needed from staff. A great fun evening with very good food and excellent value.

We went to this simple out-of-the-way restaurant because our other choice was booked, and we were lucky! The antipasti (Antipasti della Nonna) was excellent. The Rigatoni Alla Cinta Sense was outstanding. The Gnocchi Alla Lella was the most delicious gnocchi I have ever tasted. All...More

I have traveled to Italy for a total of 2 months. This is my favorite restaurant in Italy. The pesto is absolutely the best.
