The food was delicious, staff was friendly and attentive, but it was just a little noisy. I would definitely go here again, though, don't get me wrong!

Came here for a business dinner. Valet was quick, bartender super friend and makes awesome french martini's, atmosphere was top notch and decorated beautifully for Christmas and the food was delicious. Had the calamari with balsamic and asked for a side of marinara just so I could give it a try. I'm kicking myself in the butt now for not... More

In its day this was a great spot. Now it feels like a corporate restaurant. Food is good but having said that you can find much better in the area.

Day in Providence then dinner before returning my children to college after Thanksgiving break. Picked Siena for its good reviews. Checked the menu before reserving our table. Menu selections are appealing. Menu execution was good but not exceptional. Tried 2 appetizers, 4 different entrees and 2 deserts. Each was prepared competently but without flair. The restaurant is very attractive. Nicely... More

I came for dinner with a friend and the menu had great autumn touches. The harvest sangria was delicious. Unfortunately their vegetarian options were minuscule so I ordered gnocchi which was pretty good. Great atmosphere, attentive staff. I'd recommend it for sure.

My friends and I shared an early dinner on an autumn evening at Siena after a long absence from this lovely restaurant on Federal Hill. Still somewhat sated from our lunch at Venda, our party of 3 skipped the antipasti course and just selected the entrees. As I am the spice girl of the trio, I ordered the Pollo al... More

Busy Italian restaurant with food that was about a 6 or 7 on a 1-10 scale. Interesting menu with choices to suite most everybody. Cozy atmosphere, slow but friendly service on the Saturday night we were there and a long wait to be seated even though we had a reservation. Of the various items we ordered at our table we... More

My wife and I recently had dinner and had a great experience from start to finish. Valet parking is provided. As we walked in the bar was humming with people having a good time. Started by two brothers from Sicily, the staff went out of its to make your stay enjoyable. We shared a Caesar salad and a tagliatelle bolognese,... More
