This was an excellent recommendation from our guesthouse. Quality traditional fare, English speakers, great service and good sized servings
Lunch on a sunny afternoon in Siena. The trattoria is off the beaten track and has an old-fashioned and welcoming vibe. I had an excellent house white with pasta with clams and cherry tomatoes and octopus in a beautiful red wine, onion and saffron sauce(could easily have served two people as a second). Too full for dessert! Excellent coffee. The service was attentive but not fussy. Lovely! 30€ Food prices are a little higher in Siena (but less than Florence)
Nine of us went for dinner after another two highly rated restaurants were not available. One recommended this place and we were not disappointed. The friendly service was complimented by the delicious food. One guest being a chef said that it was the best gnocchi she had eaten with others in aggrement with other chosen dishes. A complimentary dessert wine finished off what was an lovely evening. A couple of our meals were slightly over seasoned to our taste but still enjoyable. We also enjoyed a chuckle at reading the English translation of the menu, a little off but entertaining. Reasonable priced and would recommend.
The proprietress of our nearby bed and breakfast recommended Babazuf. We did not have reservations, but were seated immediately at 7:30. This is opening time. Our waiter was attentive without hovering and spoke excellent English. The menu is also in English. We had the ravioli appetizer which was very good and enough for two to share. My husband had the wild boar with pici ( long fat noodles).it is slightly gamey. My dumplings with cheese were excellent- quite rich. There is no cover charge, a large bottle of water was 2€ and we are lots of bread-- the warm knits were our favorite items of the night. Good house Chianti at only 3€ per glass. We recommend this friendly restaurant.
It's summer, and all the rooftops here are open, so it's time to come here and coffee to catch up, and you can enjoy the beautiful view of the city!
