  • Restaurant in Siena centre

    Typical sienese cuisine


    The Osteria Il Grattacielo is a typical restaurant in Siena centre, although the restaurant-term apparently poorly befits its historic image, because in all the effects it is a cheap, rustic and very convivial tavern.

    Here, where the sharing and the socialization are a must, a good cuisine is served through an extremely variable and seasonal menu that changes every day.

    In order to promote and ensure the authenticity and the quality, the managers have for years established relationships with the best local producers, true artisans of taste, which hand down the delicacy of delicious Sienese's cold cuts and cheeses over time.
