My wife and I ate dinner here twice during a three-night stay in Siena. I found it in the Italian slow food book "osterie d'Italia guida 2019." Best to have reservations. The first night we got lucky as there was an opening inside. Two nights later we had to wait 45 minutes, and had a table outside. We saw many people turned away both nights. FOOD: 5.0. - A large grilled steak for 2 people: 5.0. We rarely eat beef, but had a craving. This thick juicy steak, simply prepared and grilled, was excellent. Before grilling the server brought the uncooked steak to our table for us to marvel at. - Pecorino Cheese Gnocchi with tomato: 5.0. I like gnocchi, and this was the best I have had. Large gnocchi that melted on my palate. - Italian Onion Soup: 4.5. - Risotto with local sausage: 4.5. - Lasagna: 5.0. Light, unlike in the US. - Steak Medallions: 5.0. Juicy and luscious. - Vegetable Souffle: 4.5. SERVICE: 5.0. Multiple servers, well-coordinated. Prompt and proud of their offerings. Very organized. AMBIANCE: 5.0. Not fancy, just comfortable. Inside was warmly decorated with nicely-used furniture. Low volume music (e.g, Beatles). Outside seating also comfortable.

Located near main square in Siena, it is great place for dinner. The price is an average but the quality is extra ordinary. The service is very good. Very popular place, you must have reservation and practically you can get any seat. We enjoyed our steak with great glass of Chianti wine.
La Sosta Di Violante is about a 5 minute walk from the lovely main square, Il Campo. We sat outside on the patio and the view wasn't bad, but unfortunately, it is not a pedestrian only street, so it was a bit on the busier side. We ordered the following: - Pork Ragu Pici Pasta (11 euros) - This is my second wild boar pasta in this region, and it is an absolute treat. The meat is so tender and full of flavour, it almost resembled braised beef brisket. The pici pasta was perfectly al dente, dressed in a balanced, scrumptious tomato sauce. You really can't go wrong with ordering pork in Tuscany. It's just so good.   - Black pepper and cheese risotto with local sausage (11 euros) - The risotto was rich and creamy with parmesan and pecorino romano cheese. We enjoyed the local sausage a lot. It had a fresh meaty flavour, elevated with some spices. My husband would have preferred the risotto to be slightly more al dente, but that's just personal preference. The pork ragu pasta was definitely the star between the 2 dishes. We also enjoyed the bread basket, which is rare in Italy. Generally, we found the bread offered at restaurants to be dense and flavourless, but the bread here had slightly more of the yeast flavour we enjoy and it wasn't as dry. Wine is reasonable at 3.5 to 5 euros a glass, although it's a bit small in quantity compared to other restaurants we have been to. The prices of the dishes also incorporates the cover, bread and service charges, so you don't need to pay anything extra. Overall, we enjoyed our dining experience here in Siena and would recommend visiting!
