After having passed countless "tourist trap" restaurants I happened to look through the small doors leading into Osteria Permalico, and we were immediately greeted by the genuinely kind waitstaff and the owner/chef, Armando, and felt welcome.

We visited on a Sunday in August - late lunch, sitting outside, great food (platter and salad and pasta) and then we heard the drumming. Before we knew it we seemed to be in the middle of a flag-waving battle between two of the neighbourhoods...More

We found Permalico when searching for a restaurant in Siena and it was amazing. The place is very cozy, the price is good and the food is great! It is a small restaurant and the daily menu is fixed (you can choose among some options)....More

We went to Permalico’s with a group of 17 people. Some whom had special food requirements due to allergies or religion reasons. Barbara was not only very cooperative, she prepared a meal that was amazing for everyone. Local specialties, amazing quality and the best intimate...More
