We had a group of eight family members wishing to talk and be heard. We were placed in a circular area in the rear of the restaurant which was perfect for our purposes. The food was tasty and everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. I had the roasted beet salad which came out as beet slices over greens with mandarin oranges. It was good but I expected it be more beets than greens. I also had the Roasted Red Pepper Chicken Farfalle...very tasty. My husband ordered the New York Strip Steak and thought it was delicious. Two guests had the Margherita Pizza and Pepperoni Pizza. Both were very pleased. All in all the meal and atmosphere were great. Suggestion: get new chairs - hard wood, ladder backs are not comfortable for longer meals!

A group of six of us had Easter brunch at Siba. It was our first visit, and we actually did not know that brunch was the only option that Sunday afternoon. However, it turned out to be a good experience. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Both breakfast and lunch foods were provided, and plentiful! We enjoyed roast lamb, beef filet, chicken marsala, an Asian-influence salmon, and a choice of several vegetables from the lunch table. I didn't partake of the breakfast table offerings except for the blueberry crepes, which were delicious. All of these foods were well prepared and the flavors were excellent. We will definitely go there again so we can try their regular menu.

This had always been one of our favorites! A year ago we took out of town friends for dinner and were extremely disappointed with the change in menu and the food was really terrible. The menu dor easter brunch sounded really good so we decided to go. We were so impressed we went for lunch the next week and have made reservations for Mother's Day brunch!!! We are glad we gave it another try.

We had a nice evening at Siba. I would suggest it as a great place to go with friends. the food is pricey which is what was expected but the salad portions are crazy small (2 slices of beets in a beet salad). the service was very good and we weren't rushed at all.

Great Locally Owned Restaurant
Not our first time at Siba. Go there often. As always the food was top notch and the service great. The Sunday Supper menu and concept are wonderful. Loved being able to just order the entree and have the remaining course be served family style. My wife and I dine at Siba often. My teenagers enjoy it for special occasions. We all enjoyed Sunday supper. Siba never disappoints.

The Mother's Day dinner was served family style with choice of beef stroganoff, salmon with Boursin cheese sauce, some kind of pork, or chicken cacciatore, plus choice of three sides. We chose penne Bolognese, green beans, and garlic mashed potatoes. The sides were pretty good, especially the Bolognese sauce. My salmon was pretty tasty, and one of my guests reported that the pork was good. The standout was the stroganoff! It was amazing.

This was our first time here.
This was our first time here. We went to celebrate our daughter's college graduation. Round tables made conversation very easy. Loved the atmosphere, and our waiter was very attentive without being annoying. No one had a bad meal. Scallops and crab cakes were especially good. Would definitely go back.

i took my girlfriend out for a nice night. Everything was perfect from the half priced bottles of wine under 50$ on Thursdays to our waitress bringing me a cold Stella Artois exactly when our inner arrived. I will be back

Have a drink
The food was good, the atmosphere nice, waiter acceptable... all good. Just have a cocktail BEFORE you get there. It's always nice to have a drink when out dinning, however, $11.00 for one Manhattan is ridiculous. When traveling and entertaining I pay less in downtown Pittsburgh, Chicago, NYC, etc....

Great for date night!
I brought my fiancé to this restaurant to switch things up. We had never been here before, but thought it looked nice from the road. The atmosphere inside was great - quiet and romantic, but big enough and with variations of seating that would make it good for an evening with friends or family. Our server was attentive and friendly - happy to help with recommendations as well. The food was great - I tried the Chicken Farfalle with Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce and my fiancé had the Chicken Parm - both were very tasty! I would definitely recommend Siba Cucina. You won't be disappointed!

Another Great Night Out
My wife and I have been dining at Siba for several years now and they continue to do a great job. Once again our dinner was fantastic along with the service. For the first time we were able to dine out on the balcony and it was a unique experience for us. We will look forward to doing so again. Visit Siba if you are ever in the Craberry/Mars area around dinner-time.

This is the second time we've been to Siba, the first being for lunch and we've not been disappointed. Their menu is extensive with many more items to be tried. We started with the wedding soup that was rich and thick and filled with plenty of chicken and meatballs. It was very good. I had the bucatini with meatballs as my entree. The sausage and parmesan meatballs were tender and very flavorful. The pomodora sauce was just enough. Not too spicy or heavy. My husband had the artichoke and mozzarella ravioli. In a change from everywhere else, there was pesto instead of tomato sauce. This was a nice surprising change. The portions were just right and the prices reasonable. We will definitely go back to try the rest of the menu.

restaurant week visit
Food was wonderful as was the bar area ambiance. Waiter seemed distracted, like we were not his first priority, but his recommendation for main course was a good one. Hostess at first planned to seat us at a very tiny table located next to a family with small child with large stroller taking up all the space for one of our seats. when she saw my dismay she immediately asked if we wanted another table and I requested the bar area. great choice. We dined on the prix fix dinner selection(Restaurant Week) with wine pairings. The food was terrific, especially the appetizer, but would have chosen other wines - red with fish?? Looking forward to more visits to this restaurant.

Service was a beat slower than expected, but ultimately provided by friendly, knowledgeable staff.
All food choices were well prepared and presented.

Good food, very slow service
The food was very good maybe a bit pricey. We had to request extra butter 3xs for bread basket due to less than a tsp for entire basket. Portions were smaller than I am used to at that price. Pork chop, filet and chicken parm were well prepared and tastey. Calamari was on the tasteless side and marinara was slight. Not a lot of wine avail by glass. :(

Great service with even better food
I feel compelled to write a review based on some of the other reviews. The food was excellent. I had the rainbow trout and my husband had the Bloody Mary flat iron steak. Both were flavorful and delicious. Too much food but it was so good, it was hard to stop. The salads were fresh and tasty and the dessert was pleasant. The real reason to comment is to express that we had excellent service. Our waitress was personable and visited us frequently. She was a more seasoned waitress and I could see several younger servers throughout the restaurant. Maybe the issues with service noted in other reviews have to do with younger servers. Our lady was great about making entree and dessert recommendations. She is a reason to go back.

As always SIBA provided exactly what we were looking for. Night out with friends and family. Food was exceptional as always. Service and time between courses allowed for a relaxing and laid back evening. Some restaurants attempt to rush diners in and out but not SIBA. Wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Chocolate Bacon cream pie was amazing. Will continue to back to this local gem.

Lunch was fun. Not too noisy which it had been at a previous dinner. Not sure if there are enough baffles for sound yet. The important thing is that the food was uniformly very good, The mohito could use more mint. The lunch shrimp pasta dish was great. My husband said the pork chop was delicious, the best pork chop he has had recently at a restaurant! Tiirra mi su was excellent. We left feeling well fed indeed!

We were in the area for a seminar and decided to try Siba Cucina for our Saturday night dinner. We made on-line reservations and were able to select the time we wanted. We arrived on time and were taken right to our table even though there were others apparently waiting for a table (walk ins?). The service was very good and the food was excellent, my wife still raves about the filet she ordered. The only negative is that it was very noisy. We were by a table with a larger group that was having a good time but was somewhat boisterous and the overall noise level was high. This did not take away from our being able to enjoy our meal. We will definitely go back if we are in the area again.

Nice Thanksgiving Day Buffet
This review only refers to the Thanksgiving Day buffet. I picked Siba mainly because it was in a good geographical location for meeting my father, and the reviews were decent. I was very pleased. I liked the fact that they had most of the "standards," prepared well, plus a variety of additional dishes to try. Almost everything was good, and some things were excellent. There were two kinds of turkey -- roasted and deep fried -- and both were very good (especially the deep fried). Ham and beef were also available. The mashed potatoes -- a Thanksgiving staple to me -- were excellent (maybe a little "too excellent" in terms of butter). The salad options could have been better. There wasn't anything super-fancy, which suited me just fine.
