Went there for a quick dinner after a long day of travels. Nice setting, decorated in a modern fashion. Very loud due to the vaulted ceiling. Starter was very tasty: beans, asparagus and bacon all go well together with a dash of fragrant olive oil. The main course didn't live up to the challenge unfortunately: fairly bland pici in our...

We were hungry, happened to be walking past Osteria del Gusto, read the menu and went in. Turned out to be an excellent decision. The food was delicious, the space was modern, and the walls were covered with photos of the recent Palio di Siena. The owners were a bit snobbish but we didn't mind. The food was delicious.

We dropped in here on a rainy evening in Siena (hadn't booked), the staff were great and took us to a table straightaway. The menu is fairly small, which I like, and the dishes were unusual - quite different to traditional Italian but really well thought out and a refreshing change. Highlight was the pear & walnut salad - gorgeous!... More

Great service, the second time we went we were greeted like friends. The food was beautiful, so delicious. The second night we went it was very busy as it was a holiday, and they managed it to perfection. I wish this was around the corner from my home. I would be best friends with the owner in no time as... More

The place has a pleasant minimal and clean set up, with black-and-white photos at the walls. The menu is varied, with all traditional food (pici, ribollita, Chianina, ...), the staff is friendly, you can have an excellent meal in a relaxed atmosphere.

I went to the restaurant at 12 to book a table and the owner told me that he does not accept reservations on sunday. When we arrived at 13.15 he told me that there were no room because was fully booked. Simply unacceptable to mistreat the customers.

We happened upon this restaurant rather late in their lunchtime service. Nonetheless they were very welcoming, contrary to the last review. The house wine was unusually good, the menu included several slightly unusual variations on classic dishes, and all four of us dining were impressed with the quality of the food. For example I started with a carpaccio of pear... More

We found 'Osteria del Gusto' near Siena's cathedral. It is a stylish Restuarant built under the curved roof of a basement by the road. The pasta dishes where ideal for a light lunch with the house white wine: from San Gimignano.

Right next to the Duomo in an alleyway (aka "Road") - who would guess we find a table for 10 at noon and it's one of the best meals since we arrived? Super helpful host and attentive staff as well as tasty food that was fresh in a modern cave with photo's of the Palio surrounding us - we'd go... More
