Wonderful Italian dining experience.

Directions: Located about 7-minute walk up from the Duomo, at the gates of Due Porti.

We arrived in Siena at 2:25pm and this restaurant closes at 2:30 and re-opens for dinner at 7:30pm. We walked around for 5 hours just so that we could eat there. It was totally worth the wait. The restaurant is small, but charming and cozy and the service is very friendly.

My friend ordered rabbit and loved it. I ordered a few different dishes, but I only remember the gnocchi. It was DELICIOUS! Heavenly! The best gnocchi I've ever had. The price was also great. Approximately 100 euros for three people with wine and dessert. I'm looking forward to going back.

Best rabbit I had in Italy, great gnocchi.

We were lucky to get the last table available for lunch so I would recommend a reservation. Very interesting gnocchi. The people next to us got this and even though I already had my pasta, I asked the owner into bringing me a sampler of the gnocchi with my secondo - the best rabbit I had in Italy (apologies to the vegetarians). The gnocchi was great, but rich so Id recommend getting a plate for the table to share.
