Weekend Specials Oct. 22-23

In the days leading up to the Palio (the legendary Tuscan horse race), the city of Siena comes alive with eating, singing, and dancing in the streets. The constant bangning of drums and the festive cheers of Siena’s citizens echo throughout the Tuscan countryside. Colorful banners fly in every neighborhood signifying the different “contrade” that will compete in the race. Nowhere is the spirit of the Tuscan people more visible than at this time. Here at Siena Ristorante Toscano, we strive to capture that moment, where friends, family and neighbors come together in a celebration of life, food, and friendship.
