Located near the Duomo, the Siena Cathedral, this modern looking restaurant has a dining area with a/c and an outside terrace facing a busy street with pedestrian traffic. We started with stuffed eggplant rolls with buratta, a creamier version of a mozzarella cheese, in a...zucchini sauce. My husband chose a hand cut beef tartare with all the trimmings, while I ordered the “Trippa alla senese” with the traditional ragù of onion, celery, carrots. Both dishes were excellent. The service was professional but a bit slow. The prices were reasonable for an historical center.More

Ristorante Numero Unico is a small, cozy restaurant with just a handful tables in the front part (but more in the back part). We were welcomed enthusiastic, but the service degraded during the meal. Their pasta was outstanding, especially the open ravioli with burrata and...homemade tomatosauce. My secondo was disappointing. Pig is normally the must safe-proof, but my suckling pig was tough and I had a hard time chewing half of it. Couldn’t eat the last half. The dish was much more decorated (including flowers) than normally in Italy. Nothing wrong with that, just unusual – and maybe wrong prioritizing. My partners beef cheeks were fine. And so was the semifreddo. The Chianti Classico, Riserva le Baroncole 2015 was a powerful and excellent wine. Speed of serving was fine in the beginning, but it was strange, that 1) we were not offered any drink on arrival 2) any extra wine when we had finished our bottle of red wine and 3) it took a very long time before we were offered coffee and dessert. In fact, I had to tilt the empty wine bottle to get attention. Also when I was asked how the food was, and I replied ‘hard to eat’, there was no reaction. Price was general speaking ok for Siena.More

Beautiful, complex, and adventurous. We loved this place! The owner waited on us himself. We had a lot of fun here. Very interesting textures in every dish! This place stood out among every restaurant we tried on our 2 week honeymoon, and we ate out...for every meal!More

One long day: the 4 hour ferry ride from Corsica arriving an hour late into Livorno; just on dusk, then our driver collects us, checking into Siena’s Palazzo Ravizza; chill a while then seek a bite (after the plastic food on the ferry). A quick...walk into Siena centro reveals a funky new bistro fully crowded with diners, and on inquiring discover the back room awaiting more foodies. This restaurant has a pretty hip menu although it stays with the usual Tuscan proteins, and gives a mod spin. Such as chestnut profiteroles (Italians say puffs), filled with venison patties and tartare sauce. And the local sangiovese I chose was a Riserva 2013 Rocca di Castagnoli from Fattoria di Scannano Chianti; complicated labelling here too, to understand, good wine, drying out. The next plate was more mainstream: hearty food as it had started to rain, cooling the stone Siennese streets and getting in a mood for comfort bits. It was veal cheek ragout, deep in wine sauce, plus fagioli (white) beans and singed spinach. It demanded a richer wine too; what else but a Vino Nobile; and I discovered the house pour was made by Avignonesi in 2014. Double yum. It was a good meal and a grand new space; you should try it too; and avoid eating tourist food in the square. Make sure you don’t? CiaoMore

We had our best meal yet after 4 days in Italy. I would gladly go back even though we only have 3 days in Siena. The beef cheeks braised in Chianti were incredibly good. Overall experience was wonderful!

I go there each time I’m in Siena, never disappointed !! I love the little terrace but also the inside rooms when you are a bigger group. The food is delicious and there is a large choice of very good vines. The gnocchis are incredible...and the beef is excellent and always perfectly cooked. The service is absolutely adorable.More

We sat outside and had two different dishes of pasta and house wine. Not the best we had in Tuscany but average. Service indifferent.

The restaurant has a quite modern feel. The staff were fine. The food was generally bland and uninteresting. I ordered tagliata medium rare as it is normally prepared in Tuscany. However it came medium to well done and had clearly been pan fried and not...cooked over a wood grill. It therefore had little flavour. It was served with lettuce and no oil or vinegar was offered until asked for. When my plate was taken away the waiter asked how it was and I said it was overcooked. He said he would discuss with the chef but I heard nothing more. My partner had beef cheeks which were tender but lacking in flavour. I have eaten much better for less in Tuscany. The prices for wine, water and coperto where higher than elsewhere.More

The evening started off very well, we had the Tuscan steak, (not the best we had while in Tuscany by any means) which is not cheap and overall this meal was the most expensive we had in Tuscany. At the start the waiter was very...friendly, however when we said we didn't want desert but would like an amaretto, he just looked at us and said he was out of it, he reluctantly sold us a limoncillo. We got chatting to a couple of ladies at the next table and though we would have another drink while we sat there, he refused to serve us, saying "this is not a bar". The restaurant was half empty but the kitchen was still open and they were still serving. The waiter's behaviour left a bad taste and ruined the evening really, avoid this place, there are better restaurants in SienaMore
