Trattoria Papei

By bliba  
Enzo (the owner) invites you into the kitchen .... to see in the pots and pans and to smell the wonderful food

A historic and popular restaurant, just like the piazza on which it stands, Simple, home-cooked and authentic Tuscan dishes, which will appeal to anyone keen on traditional cuisine.

I have known the restaurant since 1995 ,the menu hasn't changed for years, and why should it? The pici al cardinale (with a duck and bacon sauce) is wonderful, and all the other typically Sienese dishes are equally delicious. Grilled meats are the true speciality; the bistecca di vitello (grilled veal steak) is melt-in-your-mouth wonderful. Tucked away behind the Palazzo Pubblico in a square that serves as a parking lot for most of the day, the restaurant's location isn't great, but the food is.

thanks for looking

Nothing beats good Italian food. If those pans could talk they'd have many tales to tell. Fabulous pictorial story.
