Siena Ristorante Toscano
Special Mothers DayMy family, my brother's family and my Mom enjoyed a wonderful late lunch at Siena Rstorante Toscano . . The food was visually enticing and incredibly delicious. Great ambience, great service. Siena has definitely become a favorite. Top-rated.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Authentic ItalianExceptionally well prepared meal that was delicious. Servers were very courteous and responded to our needs without being intrusive. Menu is well planned without being overloaded with typical "Americanized Italian Food Fluff". Wife and I visit Italy at least once a year so we are very familiar with Italian food and its preparation. We met the Chef, who trained in Italy and returns frequently to hone his skills. We are very critical when an establishment touts "Authentic Italian" and it turns out to be Americanized. Not so with Siena. We were not disappointed in our selections and finished meals fully satisfied. We fully intend to return with friends so that they may enjoy great Italian in Texas!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNever fails to satisfyHave dined there a number of times, and went there with family for an early Mother's Day Saturday dinner. Sat upstairs for first time, which is nice and more intimate, with only a few tables, but you don't get the full ambience and beauty (or hustle and bustle) of the main dining room. Our dishes were prepared and presented as we liked, although in all candor our rather high taste expectations for several new dishes as described were not realized. Service however was very knowledgeable and professionally friendly -- couldn't ask for more. Very enjoyable experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great place food isWhat a great place food is excellent,and the service was unbelievable
It's a must go to place for great Tuscan food5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways ExcelentMy wife and I feel so blessed to have this wonderful restaurant in our neighborhood.
Everything is always excellent. The waitstaff have been there for years. They know the menue, the wine, and always make you feel special. The wine tasting dinners are a treat too.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, excellent serviceWe brought in our out of town guests. Siena did not disappoint us. They are always predictable.
After we enjoyed the daily special, we tasted the newly presented desserst - out of this world!
We stayed an hour beyond the closing time. We were not rushed to leave the restuarant.
Our hostess, Margrate treated us as her own guests and made special efforts to make our guests fell at home.
We appreciate the great food and excellent service.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good dining experienceWe were trying the restaurant again after having a not so good experience there a couple of years ago. We were seated upstairs in the balcony area which is lovely. The interior of the restaurant is authentically Tuscan and I especially love the bar area and fireplace. Our server was very nice (wish I could remember her name). She made it a very nice dining experience for us and for my mother who was celebrating a birthday. We used to go to this restaurant often and I am happy to have given it another try and I think it will now be one of our favorites again.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMN_NLNThey stick with what they know well and always add in some new twists for your consideration. The food is always excellent. The pulled pork served brochette style on french bread is a great appetizer. They have two serving sizes. Just right and gorge yourself. Sometimes in life you need one or the other! The atmosphere is casual with a great bar and super comfortable place to drink wine w/friends near the fireplace in front. The location requires a beautiful drive along 2222 or 360.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI will go back!Stepping into Siena makes you think you are in Italy. We ate lunch during Restaurant week and all four of us were pleased with our choices,(salmon and chicken). The food is good quality and well presented with healthy sides. I hope to return at another time to try some different menu offerings. Our server was very attentive.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBest boar ever, and we haveBest boar ever, and we have had some excellent cinghiale here.Salmon was cooked perfectly, end it is difficult with so thick a piece.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother lovely lunchAnother lovely lunch. Best service around. Very professional and friendly servers.
Food is always outstanding.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for the first timeWe went for the first time because of Austin Restaurant week. The meal was very good although the portions were much larger then I was expecting. So I walked out very full. We each tried to get something different so we could try multiple items I had the Bruchetta with Wild Boar Ragu and it was really good but it could have easily served 2. My boyfriend got the Speck salad which was also delicious. For our entrees he has the chicken which the waiter said they only make for restaurant week. It was very tasty and I had the Steak which was good as well but it was covered with green salad which made it more difficult to eat since it was a thin cut of meat. The chocolate Torte for dessert was rich and yummy and luckily a small portion.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything is just top notchEverything is just top notch here. The food is excellent and the service impeccable. The rooms have a wonderful atmosphere and take you to another place and time.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMYumHad a wonderful lunch. I had a mussel appetizer with a sauce that was so good you wanted to use your fingers to get the last drop. That was followed with a nice portion of grilled salmon. All was cooked perfectly. My husband had a salad and then a wonderful chicken dish with a fantastic mushroom gravy. It was our first but not our last visit to this wonderful restaurant.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent meal! I am a returnExcellent meal! I am a return customer and my girlfriend enjoyed her first meal at Siena. We ordered the calamari and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the bread that made its rounds, to the various plates of food we ordered, everything was top notch, fresh, and delicious.
