A word from Siena Ristorante Toscano
For over 13 years Siena has been Austin’s premier destination for authentic Tuscan cuisine. Chef Harvey Harris received his Master's Chef in Italian cuisine while attending culinary school in Piedmonte Italy, but his heart is in Tuscany where he lived and worked. All food at Siena is prepared to order, pasta is made fresh daily as well as all stocks and sauces. Tuscan food in general is gluten free so over 65% of their menu is always gluten free!. Utilizing local farms and ranches Chef Harvey sources out products that are hormone free, chemical free and natural for his menu. Our food is complemented by an award-wining wine cellar and served in rustic, elegant surroundings of thick stone walls and tall wood-beamed ceilings. Whether visiting for a light lunch, happy hour, special event, or a romantic evening, experience the welcoming charm of Tuscany close to home.Continued

  • "The staff at Siena make you feel welcome and special. The food is always the best, and the atmosphere can't be beat this side of italy."

  • "Siena has it all: great food, excellent service, and ambiance. Highly recommended!"
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "We came to Siena for the first time as a special occasion birthday dinner. We wanted to enjoy cocktails at the bar prior to going to our table, children were sitting at the bar. People go to a bar to get away from children. Also, we sat next to the service well and could hear all sorts of server banter as well as service issues. When we were ready for dinner, we were seated at the worst table in the house and not by a window, as per my request on the reservation (when the restaurant was almost empty). The food was good and our server/bartender hit all the steps of service but the other factors do not make up for it."

  • "We had a wonderful dining experience at Siena again, as usual. We feel blessed to have such a beautiful and well run resturant in our neighborhood."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We had a party of 10 and a semi private room. The food was outstanding and the service even more than that. We were surprised to learn about the Sunday happy hour and intend to come back and enjoy that as well!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The only draw back, my husband ask for a cocktail 2 times from our waitress & she kept forgetting it....3rd time around...she came through"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "A large, varied and reasonably priced wine list, well prepared and visually appealing appetizers & entrees paired with attentive and pleasant service presented in a comfortable and open setting make Siena a nice place for dinner close to home. The location is just off FM 2222 and is set back in a quiet tree lined enclave insulating from Loop 360 traffic. For those of us living in the area Siena is our go-to neighborhood place for a quiet dinner when we're not in the mood for the much more casual County Line. Try the Carpaccio and the Fegatini Fritti -a great take on fried chicken livers I've not found offered elsewhere - for appetizers. The in- house pastas are excellent & we've never been disappointed by the fish,fowl & meat entrées."

  • "We've been to Siena a few times, and each time it has been wonderful. The atmosphere is romantic and Austin-style elegant, the food and wine are superb, and the service is attentive. The bar at the entrance of the restaurant is a lovely spot for a pre-dinner drink or for a less formal dinner and drinks. There's a lovely outside nook with several tables, but so far we've always dined inside. This is a really fabulous upscale Austin-style restaurant--perfect for a special occasion or a romantic date."

  • "This restaurant has a very Italian menu...not your everyday spaghetti and meatballs. One of our favorite spots in Austin!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Not bad, but not overly amazing either. The location and options proved to be perfect for a quick working lunch."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Very accommodating for gluten-free options! They even have GF pasta!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The food at Siena is always well-prepared and well- presented. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu and provided attentive service throughout the meal. We enjoy this restaurant because it is not noisy and we can actually have a conversation during our dinner."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We went to celebrate my last child's graduation from high school. The waiter seemed annoyed with us for some reason. We are not doctors or lawyers and there seemed to be an air of snootiness when we asked about things on the menu that were new to us. The place itself is beautiful. I ordered the ravioli and it was tasty but skimpy. There were eight of us and no one complained about the food. It was a nice place to go, but we will probably not revisit. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "My wife & I have been celebrating special occasions at Siena for many years, and it never fails to please. The food is excellent and the ambience of the building is totally Tuscan."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Siena has long had an excellent menu and wine service. They have managed to keep a well trained and gracious staff, service is attentive, and the ambience is warm and comfortable. Food is excellent and menu is kept fresh with great daily specials. Prices are reasonable. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Service was professional as usual, but there was a miss on one of the appetizers. Rather than tell us, they made a substitute and served it to us as such. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The food and service were excellent. You will love the building."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We mostly enjoyed our first wedding anniversary here. The entrance to the restaurant is the only uncomfortable moment. There's nowhere to wait to be greeted by a host. We walked in and the bar is right there. If we moved back into the entrance, we were right next to the door leading outside. It felt awkward to me. Greg, our waiter, was very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was delicious, healthy and plenty. I got the trout, shrimp and spinach. My husband enjoyed his moist salmon, grilled shrimp and potato puff. It was served beautifully. The bread was warm and fresh and the chicken liver appetizer with caramelized onion and balsamic reduction is so memorable and good, I'm gonna try to make at home!"

  • "We tried Siena out during Austin Restaurant Week, so we knew what we were going to order before we got there. The descriptions of the food definitely downplayed how awesome each course was. The mozzarella on my salad was made at the restaurant, the olive oil was an amazing quality, and the proteins we ordered were cooked perfectly. Not to mention our waiter, Paul, was incredibly full of helpful suggestions and also enjoyed telling us how some of the dish components were prepared. We're already planning to go back and give the full menu a try!"
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "The food was very good, as well as the service. The waiter meant well I am sure, but he was a bit over zealous esp. when he folded my boyfriend's napkin while he was away from the table. "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "We done out often. This was our first time here. The experience goes down as the best we have ever had. Before we even got all the way into the place, the hostess/mgr Reena was cheerfully greeting us. We asked for a quiet table upstairs. No problem. And it was a Saturday night. DeAnna our waitress was helpful and pleasant but did not bug us. She gave great recommendations on food and wine. Just the best date night ever!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Siena offers authentic Italian ambiance and cuisine in a cozy, romantic scene. Very friendly service and great wines"

  • "I've been to Sienna, this brings back fond memories....I was looking and hoping for ...white bean Pasta et Fagioli, but missing from the menu, maybe next time ? "
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Went to Sienna for Austin Restaurant Week and had a great meal. Their prix fixe restaurant week menu was special for the event. Our group of 5 could happily mix and match the appetizers, entrees and desserts to sample all the specialties. I had the walnut crusted trout-outstanding. And the appetizer cannoli with rabbit confit was very tasty. The service was very attentive without hovering, and the atmosphere as always reminds one of favorite trips to Italy. We were very happy that Sienna participated in Austin Restaurant Week and especially that money from our meal was donated to Meals on Wheels, so others could have a nice warm meal delivered to them."

  • "My wife, daughters and I had a wonderful meal together at your restaurant. It exceeded all of our expectations! "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The atmosphere and service was outstanding. The food was very good. I want to go back and see if I enjoy the food even more. It wasn't the best food, but it was very good. Definitely worth a second visit. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "This restaurant has very nice tuscan-style, candlelight ambience. Unfortunately, the food quality doesn't match the nice atmosphere. The pasta was under-cooked and tasted raw. The other dishes were off also. And at their price-point, you should expect much better quality of food. "
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "The restaurant itself is beautiful and it does not disappoint. The entire experience was delightful. From the prosciutto wrapped figs w/ goat cheese, to the walnut encrusted rainbow trout, the meal was impeccably prepared. Our waiter was very attentive without being obtrusive. A truly wonderful dining experience! "

  • "Great Italian food, terrific ambience and suitable for lunch, brunch and dinner. Service out of the kitchen can lag a bit so, leave plenty of time."

  • "Old world charm that feels completely authentic. Extremely friendly and professional service. Food outstanding every time I've been. It's my go-to place for business lunch when I want to impress and have a quiet place for easy conversation. It's also my favorite date night restaurant with my husband when we want a quiet night together. Oh so romantic in the evening."

  • "Great menu that featured traditional Italian courses. Outstanding appetizers, pastas, steaks and seafood. Wine list was excellent. If you get reservations for date night, ask for the upper balcony. On the way out we made reservations for Easter brunch next weekend, so it's definitely worth a repeat trip."
