Restaurants in Siena                    (Back to Siena main information page)

Siena used to have a poor reputation for restaurants but over the last few years a range of new, imaginative osterie has signalled a general rise in standards. Local specialities include pici (thick, hand-rolled spaghetti with toasted breadcrumbs), finocchiona (minced pork flavoured with fennel), pappa col pomodoro (bread and tomato soup), and fagioli all'uccelletto (white bean and sausage stew).

Putting together a picnic in the Campo or elsewhere is easy: you can buy pizza by weight from many central hole-in-the-wall places, or phone an order ahead for quality, fresh-baked pizza (whole or by the slice) from Mister Pizza , Via delle Terme 94 (tel 0577.221.746; closed Sun). Gourmet supplies are at the extravagantly stocked food store Manganelli, Via di Citt?71. Natural Planet , Via delle Terme 70, has organic foods. The covered market south of the Campo in Piazza del Mercato is also good for picnic provisions, and every quarter has its bakery.

We've divided the listings below by price: expensive means an average full meal (excluding wine) costs above 30.99 per person; inexpensive means you can eat for 12.91 or less; mid-priced is between the two.
