Osteria Il Grattacielo

A traditional osteria in every sense, the Osteria Il Grattacielo makes up in its food what it lacks in space. Tucked away in a quiet corner on Via Pontani, this restaurant is the kind you may discover only by sheer serendipity - and you will be glad you did. Let the lack of written menu not deter you; the eatery displays its food at its counter, so you may state your preference and receive a freshly prepared plate of the same. Choose from assorted meats and cheese platters, frittatas and the classic verdure sott'olio or marinated vegetables. Grab a glass of wine and soak in the simplicity of it all. Osteria Il Grattacielo has an outdoor patio perfect for summers, and provides splendid respite from a day of sightseeing.

Osteria della Chiacchiera

La Chiacchiera is a gastronome's delight. You spend little and eat well. In the summer, you can also eat outside. The interior is typically medieval with two rather small rooms offering about 40 seats. It is best to make reservations. The cooking is typically Tuscan with bruschette, salamis, cheese, stews, soups, pasta with vegetables (pici all'ortolana) and, in winter, pappa al pomodoro (a bread and tomato soup). The Osteria is close to Santuario Cateriniano and the Basilica di San Domenico in Via Sant'Antonio off Via della Sapienza.

Antica Osteria da Divo, with its authentic Italian fare and rustic Etruscan setting, offers patrons a true Tuscan experience. Dine in their First Grotto, a dining room carved from tufa stone that's ideal for private events and large groups, their larger main brick-walled dining room or the Etruscan Niches, small ancient vaults that offer privacy that's ideal for an intimate date night dinner. The food is delicious and beautifully presented and the gnocchi with truffles and cheese soufflé are recommended. The wine selection is extensive and is perfectly paired with the food for an absolutely memorable spread.

Osteria le Logge

If you are a fan of Sienese or Tuscan cuisine, or just someone with an appetite for adventure, get off at the Piazza del Campo and you'll find Osteria le Logge. The ambiance is casual with a slight touch of modishness. The sea fare is what you will not only drool over but come back for more. During summer, eating out under the sun is encouraged with musicians for company. Logge it is then?
