Tiny little classy spot. Brick/cave feeling. Some waiters speak English, very nice candle light dinner. As mentioned, the back of the restaurant wine cellar area used to be a home 200 years before Christ, you can go into it escorted, the walls are hand carved sandstone and looks like a single room with a pointed roof. We celebrated a special occasion there and they were very accommodating. The Tiramisu is home made and very delicious. Don't forget to order wine since you are in Tuscany after all. Reservations extremely important since this is a popular spot only the locals know about.

Favorite Dish: Tiramisu (rum soaked cake custard style desert)

Address: Via G. Dupre, 132 - 53100 Siena, Italy
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Not far from IL Campo, right next to Prato e Chiesa di S. Agostino. It is inside the city walls also in case you were wondering.
