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.

    We had just returned from a 2 week trip to Italy, but were not happy with the eggplant dishes we had during our visit. We knew we wanted to go to Siena as soon as possible to have their delicious Involtini di Melazane. We are frequent diners and we were not disappointed. :) The attention and information we received from our server, Jess was impeccable. She was very knowledgeable about the menu, the wine, the location and of course the food. But her demeanor was where she shined most. Her personality is perfect for a neighborhood restaurant like Siena. She is very happy working there and we were happy to have her as our server. She introduced the featured wine and it was as she described.

    Excellent quality of food and preparation. My favorite is the gnocchi with mushrooms, peas, asparagus and truffle oil after the salad that has the golden beets and barrata cheese! I need to eat there more often so I can try other dishes!

    We took our two adult daughters for dinner at Siena and, as always, it was a perfect night Siena is such a gem; from the great service, to the unbeatable ambience, to the fabulous wine and food. We had an incredible appetizer; was a special can't remember the name but the flavors were to die for. Entrees were delicious, 2 veal dishes cooked to perfection, seafood pasta dish and steak all top notch. And, let us not forget the desserts, cheese cake and a baked apple special. Once again, flavors are so distinctive and took you to another place......possibly Nantucket, at half the price! The quality of the food for the price is unbeatable; we are lucky to have such a high quality restaurant so close to home. Keep up the good work!

    e have made several visits to the Siena restaurants around the state but this time we were disappointed - particularly with the service. The waitress was pleasant but lacking in serving skills of the caliber of a better restaurant. There are numerous examples but as an example, when coffee was brought to the table after dinner, all the saucers were filled with coffee. When we brought this to her attention, she resolved the problem by taking a cloth hanging from her belt and wiping up the spills. This may appear minor to some but I was left thinking how clean was that cloth. In the same respect, I don't appreciate having servers put their hands on the rim of the glass when they pour water.

Great food, great staff, great place. And the price was lower than I would have expected as well! Try Sienna, I can't recommend it enough.

    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.
