A word from Siena - East Greenwich
Welcome to Siena - East Greenwich, serving authentic Tuscan cuisine in a warm and lively atmosphere. The cucina (kitchen) and enoteca (winebar) is where families and friends often meet in Italy to casually enjoy each other's company over earthy wines and simple communal fare of olives, cheeses, cured meats and small plates. Siena - East Greenwich compliments the trusted menu from the original Siena Restaurant, located on Federal Hill, with many of the warm touches and great food found in kitchens and winebars all over Italy.

    The food was good but it was not a place to celebrate a romantic occasion like an anniversary. The noise level was very high and the ambiance was more in line with a casual dining experience. Also, the A/C was set to a point where we were shivering the entire evening. Go for a good Italian meal, bring a sweater and prepare to shout out your conversation.

    An old friend recently moved from Atlanta & we wanted to treat ourselves. Three of us enjoyed a antipasti platter of prosciutto, cheese, olives, nuts, crostini & fig jam. The waitress wisely suggested we include honeycomb. It was delicious, even if the cheese was barely a taste each. They are stingy with the antipasti portions (except for the olives). Our dinners were fabulous & the portions ample. Branzini with scallops, penne & grilled chicken with vodka sauce & boneless short ribs over risotto. Desert was chocolate bread pudding with crunchy toffee caramel sauce & vanilla gelato. It was plenty for the three if us. Our servers were knowledgeable & very attentive, without being intrusive. Sienna will not disappoint!

    The evening was a complete success. Our table was waiting for us and the Waiter was ready to assist us. He explained the specials slowly and in detail. Our drinks came quickly and he gave us time to view the menu and make our choices. The food was outstanding. The portions were exactly right. I cannot be more happy with the dinner.

    Meal and staff were fantastic as always. The only thing that ruined it was the table in the middle of the resturant full of screaming kids running around the resturant. I know this is not Siena's fault but to parents out there, please realize this is not chuck e cheese. This is a beautiful resturant where people go to relax or celebrate a special occasion ( girlfriends birthday) and they expect a certain level of quiet and comfort. Parents, do not bring your 4 and 5 year olds here on a Friday night at 8pm if they can't handle themselves.

    Fortunate to eat here twice in a week: once with five guys on a business dinner, 2nd time with fiancé on her birthday weekend. Both visits were great. Made reservations online both times. The food was great. I had a med-rare filet mignon first time and cioppino the second - steak was perfectly cooked and flavorful, and the seafood was fresh and the broth was great (ask for the hot oil to drizzle over if you like spicy). I'll be back and bringing friends. The staff was hustling but not in a bad way...felt like they were enjoying themselves.

    Food was terrific; service was good; table was terrible. We were seated right across from busy kitchen door on an elevated level with the servers and staff working on computers literally two feet from our heads. This table should be taken out of service or saved for people without reservations who are desperate for a table and willingly accept the strange location. Not what you expect with an OPen Table reservation. We asked for a different table but were told it was only option unless we wanted to wait a very long time.

    Excellent food and service along with a sophisticated decor. We were a party of six and enjoyed a perfectly paced dinner. Our only complaint was with the calamari which we found to be pale and lacked flavor. The men in our party also felt the portions could be a little larger

    We tried Siena again because so many people rave about it. Our best experience has been sitting at the bar with a fresh-baked pizza and a glass of wine. We reserved a table this last visit for our anniversary. The table wasn't ready, even though it was reserved. We were seated in the geometric room that has a lot of windows and a not very appealing view of the parking lot. That room is way over air conditioned and uncomfortable, not to mention too loud. It was hard to hear the people at our table. The table service has been like this each time we have reserved a table: slow & uncomfortable. Most disappointing was the food. Having just been to Italy, we were excited for some good Tuscan food. The food was mediocre American. Bummer

    This is a beautifully decorated restaurant, and we were seated in a gorgeous area. That being said, there are a few awkward table placements. Stools and counter set-up was stuck out on my way to the bathroom, and a few two top tables next to the door that I would never want to be seated at. Food was superb - giant meatball was so good (shared), Cesar salad was cold and dressing was perfect. All entrees were very well-presented and tasted amazing. Not too pricy. Service was also excellent. I would go back again.

    Siena was one of our favorite Providence restaurants. The year we moved from Massachusetts to the southern Rhode Island coast they opened the new location in East Greenwich. How lucky could we be. Still a favorite and closer. The food is wonderful with that great Tuscan flare.

    Dined on 7/18/2014
    After we had left the restaurant, we came to realize that because we had ordered from the restaurant week menu, that an 18% gratuity had ALREADY been added to our bill. Regretably, we ended up double tipping. It would have been a nice gesture for the server to either mention that the gratuity had been added to the bill when she presented it, or come clean when she realized we double tipped. Visited this restaurant the month with friends and we were overcharged for drinks that we did not order.

    Two couples had dinner at Siena for a birthday celebration. The food was delicious and the wait staff was attentive. Even though it was restaurant week and they were very busy, we still had excellent service. I would recommend this restaurant for any occasion. We have had dinner there several times in the past few years.

    We dined at Siena to celebrate my birthday. We chose the East Greenwich location rather than Providence, which is closer to us, so that my mother, who is elderly and doesn't drive, could join us. We happened to dine during Restaurant Week, which was an added bonus. There was a good selection of restaurant week choices. The food was delicious and the service was attentive yet not obtrusive. We eat at the Providence location occasionally and will also add the East Greenwich location to our stable of favorites.

    We have been to this location a number of times. We were seated in a very noisy section right outside the kitchen. We had friends in from Washington and wanted to catch up. The food was not as good as the regular menu. The calamari and Polpete were outstanding, but the Salmon and Lobster risotto would have benefitted from a sherry type sauce rather than the scallion. The portion of rice was tiny. Our waiter Sean was rather unattentive and did not return to check on our dessert order nor offer us coffee at the end of the meal. We will return with the regular menu. We were surprised that we were required to all eat off of the "Restaurant Menu". What would the harm have been if someone wanted to order a more expensive meal?

    We had a very enjoyable dinner at Siena. The food wqas very good. My pork chp was done as I had requested, and was very tasty. My wife had salmon, and while it was also very good, she felt that the garnishes made the dish a little too rich. The service that we received from our waitress, Annie, was outstanding. She was helpful, responsive, and created a most fVORAB LE AMBIENCE FOR DINNER.
