Osteria La Chiacchera
Osteria la Chiacchera was born in 1990 from the idea of Anna, the actual chef.
Today Osteria La Chiacchera is managed by her son, Simone, who since he was young has seen the growth of this well-managed place of taste and friendship, that can be found in one of the most spectacular part of Siena, the Costa di Sant’Antonio.
Costa di Sant Antonio is the street that, going from Basilica di San Domenico and Via della Sapienza, goes down to the Fonti di Fontebranda and then rises in Via della Gallura to arrive to Piazza del Campo, passing the residence of Santa Caterina of Siena, a destination of pilgrims.
From the outside tables one can admire the view of Siena with Facciatone del Duomo seen over the rooftops.
Osteria La Chiacchera takes inspiration from osterias of the early 1900s, where one went to have a small talk with the Oste, the host, and brought something to eat ordering some wine.
Among the dishes of Osteria today you can find la ribollita, pici alla boscaiola, tagliatelle al sugo antico with liver and onions, trippa, roasted pork, stracotto with Chianti, braised pork, ribs with potatoes and other dishes of Sienese and Tuscan culinary tradition.
