    What a thrill it is to return to South Florida and be able to go to L says it'sa Serena. It Is something we dream about throughout the summer when we are in the North. There is nothing that even approaches it as a full enjoyable evening experience. Diane and Marcelo have found perfection and they have passed the secret on to their accommodating staff.

    My wife and I went for an early, mid-dinner. Inside the restaurant, the atmosphere stopped at the bar; the dining room is a blandly-decorated, high-ceilinged, poorly-lit Quonset hut. On the tables were the barest minimum of dishes, silver and glasses. Nothing that created or enhanced atmosphere or said "welcome". Order-taking was perfunctory and the food preparation raised the question that this might have been the Chef's night off. Very tiny clams and very odd seasoning in the baked clams; watery tomato sauce on the pasta; unseasoned vegetables. We skipped coffee and dessert and we're happy we didn't need to wait for our car. There are far better and far more welcoming Italian options at more reasonable prices.

    Tuesday night, Jan. 28, had a wonderful dinner with two friends. The food was exceptional, from the clams and gnocchi and clams to the Yellowtail and veal. We topped it off with pistachio tartufo and tiramisu. Dining at La Sirena is always a wonderful experience, and the service was wonderful!

    Dined on 1/27/2014
    Our reservation was for 6:30, and we were seated right away. Table for two was roomy enough, but it was situated in the middle of the room. And almost every time a wait person went by, he bumped into one of us. Not hard, but noticeable. Just past us was a long table, obviously set up for a large group. And we were made to feel rushed as though they needed our space as well. I indicated I would recommend it to a friend, and I would because otherwise it was very good. But there are enough good restaurants in that area that I don't think I'd go back.

    although the food was excellent and the service very good, La Sirena is very noisy and the tables are so close together it is difficult to move. It was frequently hard to hear our companions across the table. Not what I expect from an upscale place like this. The wine list while excellent was absurdly marked up for Florida. I felt like I was back in one of NY's top (and overpriced) restaurants but at least there I can hear my companions

    Dined on 1/11/2014
    I began with the escargot- way too much garlic. Then I had the langostino which was good. My husband ordered the gnocci to start which was delicious and possibly the lightest gnocci I have had. He had the ravioli special which was with lobster that he said was delicious. The side of vegetables (carrots and zucchin sticks) were ok and really didn't bring anything special to the meal. For dessert we shared the berries with zabaglione. It had an overwhelming alcohol taste which made it difficult to consume. The service was good and the atmosphere was nice. Tables are very close together. I would try again since my husband's meal was so tasty, I just would stay away from the escargot or ask for less garlic.

    We loved our New Year's Eve dinner at La Sirena! Many restaurants offer only a set menu/prixe fixe dinner on NYE, but La Sirena not only offered everything on their menu, but many tempting specials as well. Several in our party had the veal piccata, which was outstanding, but the crown jewel was the succulent veal chop from a roasted rack of veal. Attentive and friendly service. Everything was just wonderful. What a great start to our New Year's celebration.

    Small, family owned and operated fine Italian dining. Always a pleasure. Marcello always has marvelous specials which makes the menu nearly an unnecessary item. His wife carefully tends to the dining room and all runs smoothly. It is small, can be a bit noisy, but, a favorite. Reservations, yes. Good wine list. Very good service; parking. Located in West Palm. Special wine dinners are on the calendar as well. Yes, foodies will appreciate the quality. Jacket and tie, not essential...lots of jackets, few ties. Definitely a favorite of ours. (we did use Open Table for our reservations this time...worked well!) Gail Hughes Galli

    We always look forward to dining at La Sirena. The food is consistently good, and the service attentive without being overbearing or pretentious. Time to change the side vegetables is our only suggestion! La Sirena remans our go-to place for a night out with friends, casual or one step up. Thank you, Diane and Marcello, for years of first-rate dining.

    We go to La Sirena often and the food and service are consistently outstanding. Our favorite main dishes are Chicken Gismonda, Chicken Cacciatore, and Yellowtail Oreganata. The Sirena Salad, a mixture of chopped lettuces and fresh tomato with a delicious light dressing, is amazing, as is the homemade fettuccine. For starters, the Escargot is definitely a winner.

We had reservations for 7:30, within that half hour, the place was packed. A lot of older people seem to dine there. Overall, it was great, but I would of rather have a little more elegance.

    Outstanding!! Chef Marcello (the owner) helped direct us to our table as we entered, albeit early in the dinner timeframe (6:15), as he is a working owner-chef.! The staff was really helpful at every step as my wife and I managed through dinner with our 9 month old in tow. They dealt gracefully as I spilled wine, and brought a small plate of plain penne for our daughter, with not even a mouth corner downturned. The food was spectacular, and the wine list is extensive, yet they highlight a number of wines under $50 at the beginning of the large book. I can't say enough good things about our meal. Torta Caprese was a stellar dessert! Restaurant was a good level of busy, with few open reservations, likely a sign that it is a local favorite.

    Fantastic dinner!!!! Early thanksgiving get together with family. Amazing Turnbull wine (markup was a little much) paired well with our meal and helpful sommelier. Pork chop, pasta, whole roasted Bronzino and anchovy appetizer were all PERFECT. I would not change one thing about the evening. I always get nervous when I recommend a restaurant for my family, as I am hopeful they enjoy the food as much as I do and La Sirena made me look like a champ ;-) can't wait for more reasons to return!!
