Here is our personal list:
Trattoria da Dino
Casato di Sopra, 71– Siena
If you are in downtown Siena and it is time for lunch, a visit to this restaurant located between the Duomo and Piazza del Campo is a must. In this family-run restaurant you can taste typical Sienese cuisine, with meat main courses.
In fact, from Dino we come especially for the Fiorentina, the ribs, the delicious ossobuco in Siena, the fried prepared in the pan and the delicious rabbit with olives.
Absolutely to try also the first ones, among which we recommend the pici cacio e pepe and the tagliatelle with duck.
Those who tried the appetizer certainly did not disappoint: black croutons and local salami with an intense flavor like buristo, finocchiona and capocollo.
And finally the desserts, among which stand out the cantucci to combine with a good Tuscan vinsanto and the fabulous Catalan cream. An exceptional place for connoisseurs, lovers of cooking.
Osteria Boccon del prete
Via S. Pietro, 17 – Siena
This traditional inn just a few hundred meters away from the Duomo is the ideal place for a lunch of fine Sienese cuisine.
The restaurant is famous for its creamed cod crepes, chickpea soup and the delicious pork fillet with stewed onions. Very good also pici with light pesto with almonds and the fantastic tomato soup served with a roll of eggplant and scalded mozzarella.
Among the second course we recommend the Florentine and the fabulous bites of beef in Chianti with salt potatoes.
The appetizers are abundant, with particular attention to the hot croutons with Sienese ricotta, the palette of cured meats and the dark artichoke in oil with lard.
Happy ending, or better sweettt ending, with panforte semifreddo with caramel sauce or pear pie with vanilla sauce and Vin Santo.
Via del Porrione, 28 – Siena
Another restaurant in the center of Siena that is a must try is the Porri-One, which is located just behind Piazza del Campo and offers a high quality food practically zero kilometer.
The first one to try is the carbonara of anchovies and pistachios, which can be followed by a tasty and tasty meat dish.
The menu includes Florentine, the pigeon prepared in two cooking or the delicious cinnamon duck breast.
The appetizers are very abundant and we suggest you to taste, in addition to the Tuscan hot croutons, also the inevitable cured meats.
Excellent wine cellar and imaginative and highly sought after desserts. A thousand and one night atmosphere and impeccable service: what more could you want?
Vicolo Pier Pettinaio, 7 – Siena
A fantastic trattoria! Da Guido,
located in the historic center of Siena, is a place that everyone knows in Siena and over the years has created a real reputation, being frequented by many celebrities.
The place is renowned for truffles, mushrooms and above all the steak, always soft and of the highest quality. If you happen to be in the right season, try risotto with pumpkin and sausage, or maltagliati with ossobuco sauce.
But the real specialty of the house is Chianina’s cheek, taste it and you will not regret it!
We also recommend the pici with meat sauce, the classic Tuscan crostini and especially the tiramisu with cantucci, the real strength of the place. In short, everything is good and everything to taste!
The reception is very professional and seems to be at home, thanks to a familiar and comfortable setting that immediately puts you at ease.
