    I took my girlfriend here for our 18 month anniversary and the food was excellent. The atmosphere and ambiance was also quite good. The only complaint was being seated at a table a little bit after we had requested, but other than that, I would recommend this place for sure.

    Disappointed
    Dined on 8/23/2013
    The Martinis were good, but food was just okay, and very expensive for what it was. A small side of pasta in lieu of the few green beans & 1" square of polenta given with the meal was $5 extra, really? Also, our server was more interested in taking care of the larger party next to us (we were only a party of 2).

    Siena has finally brought a fine dining option to Smithfield. The wine list, cocktails and knowledgable servers help make dinner a nice experience. We have been pleased with the seafood entrees but be sure to try the delicious pasta bolognese! It's a surprising treat. The lemon creme brûlée is a lovely dessert and a perfect way to end a wonderful dinner!

    I have been to Siena several times and your food is excellent. However, on my last visit, my meal was unusually salty. I had the Bucatini w/pepper cream sauce (my favorite dish). I realize chef's love salt (with good reason) but please note there is a limit to it's use.

    This was a memorable dining experience. The good was outstanding, the staff was attentive and friendly. The artichoke appetizer was to die for, and the filet could be cut with a fork. Only suggestion is that menu nor staff mentions that entrees come with veggies etc so one thinks one has to order a side and then it is too much food. We will definitely be back.

    We had a very small table for 2. I think Siena is a fine dining place but I would have preferred more room or a booth to sit in. The food is very well prepared and makes a nice show but the portions are a bit scant. The atmosphere is very beautiful. the Noise level because of the loud music is not pleasant when one is trying to have a conversation. all in all I thought the experience was good.

    Located in a strip mall, surrounded by fast food joints and probably the only upscale dining option in the area. They've only been open for a few months at this location, but have two other successful locations. Food quality was very good. We split several appetizers (fried calamari, big meatball, and fig pizza), which were all delicious. For entrée, I had the filet mignon special. Steak was slightly overcooked from the medium rare ordered, but was still very tender. Side of truffle fries were also tasty. Waitress was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. We had a party of 7 and the large party before us was slow to finish their meal. Manager stepped right in and moved tables together so we could be seated on time.

    We went to try the new Smithfield location of Sienna, having dined at the Federal Hill location in the past. The new location is spacious - beautifully decorated with excellent service and plenty of parking which make it easy to enjoy. The menu and food are essentially identical to their other location. We enjoyed a wonderful salad, chicken and sea bass. My fish was the best I can ever remember having, melted like butter, accompanied with perfectly cooked green beans. My only glitch was I had to pay for my second vegetable when I could not eat their second side due to dietary restrictions. Frankly this is the kind of thing that keeps people with food allergies or intolerances away from fine establishments.

    My friend and I had a wonderful time at Sienna because of its excellent food, service and drinks. My specialty cocktail was delicious while my friend had his usual vodka gimlet served from shakers with sides of ice. The appetizer, portobello mushroom with spinach cheese and pancetta was wonderful. The pinot grigio I had with the meal was excellent and my friend had a red wine suggested by the waitress and he loved it. The main meal was enjoyed by both of us. I had the broiled swordfish with the green beans and polenta. He had steak with green beans and polenta. For dessert we shared the chocolate bread pudding, which was delicious and accompanied by tea and coffee.

    The location shouldn't matter with regard to the food, but does. Calamari was tasteless. Pasta overcooked. Caesar salad so so. Tiramisu the best of everything. Wouldn't rush back to any Siena. Consistency lacking.

    This was our 2nd time to Siena. When it first opened it was very good. This time, well......We ordered our 1st drink and then had to wait 20 minutes or so to get it. Service was very slow, they seemed confused. Our food was not hot. One of the entrees had to go back. it was the wrong order. Filet Mignon was very good but not presented as we ordered it. That was cold also. The waitress was very nice and kept apologizing but she also seemed overwhelmed. I would maybe try it again in the future with hopes that these issues will be worked out

    My wife and I have had the opportunity to have dinner at all three Sienna locations. As always the atmosphere and food were very good. Unlike the Sienna in Providence and Warwick, the portion size in Smithfield was small. Also, the standard side with the majority of the entrees was polenta. To make any changes to your sides resulted in an up charge. I'm sure we will dine at Sienna again but will wait until later in the year to see what menu changes are made. Everyone deserves a second chance!

  • Nothing Special
    disappointed
    Dined on 8/9/2013
    We were looking forward to visiting the new Siena in Smithfield. The area is in sore need of a good restaurant. Unfortunately, we came away feeling it was nothing special. We enjoyed a fabulous bottle of wine and our server was a delight, but the food was just OK. The pizza appetizer was severely over cooked, as was the grilled portobello with goat cheese/pancetta. We both enjoyed the scallop & sea bass dinner, but the polenta was dry and tasteless. Overall, everything was over-salted to the extreme. The decor is well done. We will probably give it one more try before writing it off, but won't be rushing back.

    The food is great; the service is attentive; the menu is delectable. The only thing is you get what the chef prepares and substitutions are discouraged and in one case, potatoes, not in the restaurant. there are many folks that do not care for risotto and should be accommodated, but I would go there at least twice a month. It is that good.

The service was great. Very attentive without being overbearing. The food was very good and not over priced. Desert and coffee was a great way to end the evening. My hat is off to the chef for modifying a dish I requested (since I am a vegetarian). Be sure to make a reservation but it is well worth it.

    Our first dining experience at Siena in Smithfield was a hit. The atmosphere was fun and aesthetically attractive, I would say it has the potential of a romantic nice conversational place yet the noise level is too high. The selection of martininis were inventive and delicous. From our grilled funghi pizza appetizer to our seafood special with wonderfully sized scallops, shrimp, lobster meat and crab over a bed of fettucinie with a light white wine cream was truley phenomenal (my guests were putting their forks in my plate for tastings). Will definitely return the only suggestion would be our service was polite yet it did lag at many points of the night where we were looking for our waiter, but overall excellent restaurant!
