Tuscan farmhouse cuisine. We recommend stew made of eggplant, beans, potatoes and pure pork sausage. The square just behind the city hall is next to the vegetable market and parking lot. Outdoor dining in summer can admire the tower of Siena.
Definitely the most ideal lunch place in this city. For around 15 euros, you can order 2 sets including drinks. Great value!
There are not many people, the taste is delicious, the environment of the restaurant is also very good
When I took the train from Florence to Siena, the sky gradually darkened and my stomach groaned. I opened the guide and chose a recommended restaurant. From the farmhouse where we lived, along the mountain road, into Siena Ancient city. At this time, the ancient city was too quiet and there were almost no tourists. Passing through the narrow alleys, there is a wide open area, that is, the famous field square, in the shape of a shell. At the other end of the square is the Mangia Tower and the museum, the tallest tower in the Middle Ages in Italy. The painting I found in the shop window in the alley was the Field Square and the Mangia Tower. When I just drilled out of the alley, I was surprised by what I saw before me, and I happened to take a photo, ah, it was exactly the same as in the painting. The museum opposite is a building built in the 13th century and is the original city hall. I like the decoration on the wall very much, exquisite and refined, with a rustic beauty of the Middle Ages. Passing through the alley on the right hand side of the museum, you can see a small square, opposite the restaurant we were looking for. It's called TRATTORIA PAPEI. The Italian means Night House, it seems that we came to look for it at night. This place is not easy to find. The big shed next to it is a market for grocery shopping during the day. But the aroma of wine is not afraid of the deep alley. According to the guide we took, there are a lot of people here who need to line up. It is a very cost-effective restaurant. There was no one when we came, and we were worried about finding the wrong one. Probably because winter is originally the off-season, and it is a big evening, and the tourists have left. The place is right, let's take a look at the menu at the door. Flowers and pasta are placed on the counter at the door, and there is a menu on it. Many signs are posted on the restaurant door. I know some from Dadao (Trip Advisor) and Michelin. A closer look is that there are two forks painted on the Michelin label. I only know that Michelin is rated for stars. So what does this double fork mean? It turns out that Michelin’s standards for restaurants include forks, coins, heads, and stars. The fork is an evaluation of the dining environment. If the environment of a restaurant is particularly pleasant and relaxing, the fork and spoon logo will be replaced by red. black. Given the restaurant’s performance, one to five fork and spoon symbols are given. 5 forks and spoons: luxurious traditional style 4 forks and spoons: supreme comfort 3 forks and spoons: very comfortable 2 forks and spoons: comfortable 1 fork and spoon: basic comfort. This night restaurant is the red two-fork restaurant. The taste of the restaurant is Tuscan farm cuisine, and we can feel the simplicity of the farm from outside. How romantic it is to sit at the outdoor table and enjoy the night view of the tower. In the winter night in Siena, although the outdoor dining table was lighted up, it was still a bit cold, so we went in and took a seat. The house feels like a cave dwelling in northwestern China, and it is truly a peasant style. There are also some very small decorations everywhere in the restaurant. The paintings on the walls are also very interesting. On the wall next to the stairs, a picture of an owl hung. Owl decorations were also placed on the cabinet in the corner. When ordering, we asked the clerk what the special red wine was, and he recommended this wine with the "owl" logo. There are owls here and there. It’s no wonder that Dao.com should recommend this one. Oh, by the way, now Dao.com’s Chinese has been changed to "Professional Eagle". Then we will try this owl wine, which is not bad. There are so many spaghetti at the door, it must be a job offer. So I randomly ordered a copy. It came up pretty well, not the meat sauce noodles we often eat, but pork belly! Special fragrance! Of course, vitamins and fiber must be added to the fatigue of the journey, so green vegetable salad is a must. Raw vegetable leaves, squeezed with lemon, no other condiments, low-calorie and zero-fat healthy dishes! Then, Dangdang Dang Dang ~ ~ the most characteristic is here, Tuscan farmhouse stew! There are eggplants, beans, potatoes... and so on, boiled in a pot, slurries, really similar to our Northeast stew. It seems that the world is the same, and farmers eat the same way. The front is too vegetarian, and some meat is needed! The beef recommended by the clerk is so different from what we imagined. I thought it was a stew, but it turned out to be a few thin slices. At that time, I exclaimed that it was thinner than our table knife! Later, I went to a manor at the foot of the Alps in northern Italy, and I also ate similar beef. It was thinner than this one, and it could really illuminate the shadows. It is a noble manor, and this Tuscan beef slice is really a farmhouse. The usual dishes. The meat is very tender and eaten with pepper. After eating the beef, let’s have another pork sausage. It's really lean meat, there is no starch at all, I like to bake the skin a little bit. After eating and drinking, I came out of the restaurant and I looked up and saw the tower of Siena logo. Step on the night, walk through the alleys, and go back to our farmhouse inn. I have the opportunity to introduce to you the B&B inn that was converted from the rural farmhouse. It is very good. tip: The restaurant is located next to the vegetable market behind the Tower Museum. If you can’t find the navigation, you can directly lead the market. The two of us spent a total of 48 euros for this meal, which is equivalent to 24 euros per capita. Isn't it cost-effective?
