A long, brick vaulted room from the 12th century is the setting for meals many travelers long remember as among the best they’ve had in Italy. It’s a testament to the warmth of the staff that, despite the popularity (reserve for dinner) and reputation among even the discerning Sienese, they work so hard to make diners feel at home; they are justly proud of the Tuscan classics they bring out of the kitchen. Pici, the thick local pasta, with a ragu of cinghiale (wild boar), is surprisingly delicate, while ricotta-filled gnudi almost floats off the plate. Meals often begin with a complimentary glass of Prosecco and might end with a sweet on the house, bookends to an experience that in its entirety seems like a treat.
