This is a very small yet cozy restaurant to enjoy some local food. No menus, you can mix the displayed ham, cheese and vegetable in one plate. The food tastes good in general, but the portion of one plate is quite small.

We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to get into Osteria Il Grattacielo without a reservation. We took a chance on a Saturday night and showed up a few minutes before opening at 7:30. The staff was so gracious and sat us at an inside table. We chose just cheeses and meats for our antipasto (feeling a little hesitant about the vegetables, but in hindsight wish we had been more adventurous). It was delicious. We had our choice between rigatoni and spaghetti with either bolognese or pesto. We went with the spaghetti with pesto. The best meal we had during our entire Italy trip! The atmosphere and intimacy is like being invited into a Sienese home.

a few slanting tables and a mixed starters plate to die for. the sausages and pomodoro taste incredibly fresh and intense, the parmesano cheese melts in your mouth. it's simple, but all ingredients are fresh and high quality. excellent!

Absolutely amazing!!! My favorite place to eat in Siena! This simple genuine Italian food! I love that there was no menu and it was whatever was fresh on the day. Highly recommended and very adorable.

We stopped there for lunch. The staff is prompt and kind. We were seated outside in the shade (under a vault) and it was just right. We had one pasta dish and one variety of appetizers. Good stuff. Portions were huge. They do not accept credit cards, but prices are very reasonable.
