Antica Trattoria Papei,
6 Piazza del Mercato
Old Town
It is after an excellent beginning of evening at the Enoteca Italiana, with having tasted some local wine glasses, we asked the bartender if there were a restaurant respecting the purest Siena traditions. Without hesitating only one second, with the brillant eyes and already water in the mouth, he proposed to us Antica Trattoria Papei.

Although a growing number tourists can now appreciate this family trattoria, the local residents are present in great number as well for the very handsome prices as for the excellent one traditional Sienese meals. Even during the hot summer days, we can eat on the terrace giving on Piazza, with in premium, a sightseen of Terza di San Martino. Only one thing, during the evening, the Piazza becomes a parking. If we eats inside, it is necessary to move to the left of the entrance or in top for environment and the superb woodworks rather than in the modern room, on the right, where all the tourists bind themselves.

Favorite Dish: A traditional, in primi piatti, you should not miss Gnocchi Al Ragł (small potato balls, with meat sauce) carefully prepared, are probably the best than we ever ate. Then, indisputably, Trippas alla Senese (Sienese Trippes) meal which, at a first glance can appear ' special ' but, which once entered in mouth leaves an unforgettable taste, just like the town of itself.

Directions: Located on Piazza del Mercato right behind Palazzo Publico and Torre Mangia.
