We passed this restaurant and stopped to take a look. It was packed at 9PM. All tables full and people waiting for their meals. We made a reservation for the following evening at 7:30PM. We arrived and were immediately seated. They have an extensive menu (especially the pizzas). We ordered pasta dishes and a tagliate instead of pizza. 1/4 liter of wine. The pasta dish was excellent. Al dente with a very nice spicy tomato sauce. The tagliate was delicious. Cheesecake with frutta di bosco for desert was very good (N.B. made with ricotta not Philadelphia cream cheese). Many people at tables around us were eating various kinds of seafood. Vongole, cozze, shrimp etc. So I assume their selection of seafood is good as well. They also have many different kinds of pizza on the menu. The service was very good. Price to quality ratio very good. We would definitely return. N.B. Make sure to make reservations. The restaurant is very popular and busy.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our Agriturismo host and we're glad we went there! The food was SO good! We we had caprese, bruschetta with pesto, Black truffle ravioli, White pizza with spicy salami and a tiramisu. Only thing we didn't care for was the caprese but the rest was amazing! The truffle ravioli was to die for. Highly recommend to anyone looking for some good, authentic food!

This place was recommended by our AirBnB hosts, being around the corner from our apartment. We visited for lunch and it was around half full, with quite a few local clientele. It was disappointing to learn that despite their name (‘Pizzeria La Capannina’), they don’t serve pizzas during lunchtime! This seemed a bit strange. Anyhow, we ordered a few pasta dishes, including the seafood risotto. These were enjoyable, and the food was notable in how everything tasted homemade.

Service was a weak point. Our waiter was very surly and made no effort to engage. To pay your bill you have to go up to the desk, and they just punch things into the cash register. You then receive a bill with very little detail on it. I did notice however that they had added a 10% service charge, which certainly isn’t the norm in Italy, and made me wonder if it was more of a tourist tax. We paid €45 for our lunch.

The restaurant is located a bit out of the center of Siena. The have a little yard to sit outside and also parking is provided. The food is really delicious. We had pizza and pasta and dessert and all was very good. The wine was good too and the prices were very reasonable. The service was very friendly and fast. We would definitely go back!!
Don't miss it!

We arrived tired after a long journey.
Food was great and the terrace was refreshing to sit at. The restaurant was packed with families, couples and friends so booking is definitely recommended.
Pizzas and pasta delicious.
