A little about Siena…

Ah, Siena! It’s impossible not to fall in love with this city, full of brightness and charm. Siena in Tuscany, it’s the kind of city that, without any pretension, makes us fall in love with it! Its medieval touch enchants us and makes us inebriated by its beauties, which include architecture, squares, and fantastic alleys, but today we are going to talk about gastronomy we’re going to talk about good, cheap, and amazing places to have a genuinely Italian experience when it comes to food.

Some typical dishes to try…

In Siena, you can try the bruschettas based on liver or mushrooms, the bread accompanied by Tuscan salami, such as the traditional Cinta Senese, and, for the main course, you can delight yourself with a pappardelle with wild boar ragu. Rest assured, there is no shortage of them! Today I bring you suggestions of excellent places with super affordable prices for those who want to eat very well in Siena! Are you all ready? So, let’s go!

First of all: the list doesn’t follow the order ‘from best to worst’, O.K.?! And no restaurant mentioned is sponsoring this post.

One word defines this place VERY well: charm! The place is charming, the food spectacular, and the atmosphere a delight! In a privileged location, it is close to Piazza del Campo and located on the street that connects the Duomo. It is a place that transports us back in time with its decoration, its flavors, and aromas. It’s really worth it!

2) Where to eat well and cheaply in Siena? LA PICCOLA CIACCINERIA

The place is very small and often goes unnoticed by the eyes of tourists, but a piece of advice: pay attention to this ‘little door’! La Piccola Ciaccineria uses typical Italian products from the Tuscany region and produces stuffed pizzas and focaccias – which in Siena are called “Ciaccini.”. It’s all AWESOME! Ideal if you don’t want a heavy and long meal.  With an excellent location, it has super-friendly service, and your difficulty will be not ordering everything available on the menu!



3) Where to eat well and cheaply in Siena? FISCHI PER FIASCHI

With typical, delicious, and well-served dishes, it is one of the most frequented restaurants by the locals themselves. Their pasta accompanies divine sauces and presents us with a splendid wine list!

  • Access link: Fischi per Fiaschi
  • The average price per person: 18 euros.
  • Where is it? Via San Marco, 43.

4) Where to eat well and cheaply in Siena? PANIFICIO IL MAGNIFICO

You know those bakeries that impress us? That’s it! With sweet and savory options, it is ideal for those who don’t want to sit down to have a full lunch. It’s a simplicity that enchants and, I repeat, the options here are impressive: you have a lot of options and your big problem will be choosing what to eat! The sandwiches are spectacular!

5) Where to eat well and cheaply in Siena? OSTERIA IL GRATTACIELO

Typical dishes are tasty and made in an artisanal way. Your place is here! With typical cuisine, incredible options, and a wide wine list, this is one of the best and most celebrated restaurants in the city, and, amazingly, everything counts for its simplicity! Those who want to eat well, spend little, and leave very satisfied have found their place in the sun!



6) Where to eat well and cheaply in Siena? OSTERIA DEGLI STIVATI

Think of a nice place, with food out of the ordinary, so delicious, and incredible service! We arrive at the Osteria Degli Stivati. You can find amazing, tasty dishes at fantastic prices.

Spectacular! There is no other word to define this place! It is very traditional, and it is one of the most special places in Siena! It presents us with impeccable cold cuts, very well-served sandwiches, and the place is charming! Wines? We have it too! By the way, a huge list of splendid wines! It’s worth satisfying your hunger here, either with a charcuterie board or with one of the delicious sandwiches prepared with fresh and tasty breads. Another important point? Super well located!

Important Tips

  • Make reservations whenever possible, especially if you’re traveling during peak season and for dinner, which is when some restaurants are more crowded;
  • Always give preference to the house wine: it is tasty, pleasant and goes well with most of the dishes available on the restaurant menu;
  • If you are in doubt about what to eat, ask the waiter for a suggestion. Usually, the specialty of the house does not disappoint;
  • Avoid ordering dishes from other Italian regions in the region you’re visiting. It may sound silly, but they are very offended; if you’re in Tuscany, for example, avoid ordering a Spaghetti Carbonara, typical of the Lazio region;
  • Ask for a suggestion of where to eat at the reception of your hotel. It is not difficult for them to know fantastic places that are cheap and close to where you are.
