In the historic center of Siena is this little haven of hospitality. Osteria La Piana is a cute, rustic restaurant serving traditional Tuscan fare in a warm and inviting atmosphere. An Osteria is a family-run traditional type of restaurant, and that's exactly what you'll find at La Piana. Food is genuine at good prices and service is friendly even though it's a bustling little place.

Try the handmade pasta - especially the pici or the gnocchi. Pici are long thick strands, especially good with the cacio e pepe or the house special sauce "alla Piana". The main dishes of stracotto al Chianti (beef roast stewed in Chianti wine) or the ossobucco are particularly good. Local products are used, including the famous pecorino cheese from Pienza and olive oil from the owner's farm.

Reserve a table in this tiny eatery. Closed Sundays.
