    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    First I must say that I know good Italian food, so my standards are high. I chose to order the Pollo Alla Milanese - chicken cutlets with a side of tomato sauce. When my plate got to the table I could immediately tell they were darker than they should have been and looked as if something went wrong in the cooking process. They were dry and tasteless. I ate my meal knowing that for the price I paid for that dish, I could make chicken cutlets for 6 people and they would taste much better. The person I went with enjoyed their meal but said it also was lacking in flavor - frutti de mare I think it was called. As it is walking distance from my home, I might try it again or I might just drive the 20 minutes into Providence for my Italian dinner.

    Everything about Siena is great. The veal chops are outstanding and the price is a great value and they are huge. The fish dishes are always excellent. My husband and I eat there several times a month. Overall Siena is the best restaurant in Rhode Island.

    Food and service were very good. My wife and I both had veal and it was extremely tender. We were pleasantly surprised we had a choice of 12 red wines and 12 white wines by the glass. The team of servers who brought the bread, filled our water glasses, and brought our dessert were friendly and timely. Our main server was excellent: knew the menu options and specials, cleaned our table of crumbs twice, brought new silverware as we needed, and made my wife's capacinno the way she likes it. We will be back.

    We dined for our wedding anniversary. We had an antipasto tray which had excellent olives,cheeses, Salami and Italian Ham, walnuts and toasted Italian Bread. My husband had the chicken Parmesan which he stated was good. I had the special of the filet of beef topped with a Gorgonzola which was just good. The vegetables were cooked perfectly and the pollenta was excellent. We were seated in a corner booth , looking out on the shopping center parking lot. We were able to hear every conversation around us very clearly. I have been to the Sienna E. Greenwich multiple times for special occasions, which I identify as my favorite restaurant. Our waitperson Amy was excellent.

    We like to visit Siena in Smithfield at least once every other month. The food there is fantastic and that is what brings us back each time. The staff there are very personable and helpful with any and all questions. The restaurant manager also is seen walking around talking to the guests and making sure your experience at their location is a good one. If you find yourself in that area or plan to be definitely go.

    First off if I make a reservation for 8pm, I expect to be seated by 8:15 at the very latest....that's the point of a reservation.....you RESERVE my table. Upon checking in I was told they were running behind and it would be at least 20 minutes before we were seated. It was actually 30. The place is small and very loud. Not the type of place for a romantic dinner by any means. The bar area was packed with everyone waiting to be seated because their tables were not ready yet either. Once we did get seated, the service was excellent. The waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and specials. The food was excellent. We had a few glasses of wine, appetizers, our main course with 2 sides and dessert for under $100.

We tried the calamari appetizer and it had the perfect balance of flavours. Overall it was a pleasant atmosphere a perfect getaway after a harf and long week.

  • Portion Control
    FoodieFan
    Dined on 9/10/2014
    Sienna is known for their delicious food offerings. Unfortunately, their portion control leaves allot to be desired. When they say you get a vegetable with your entree it should be a serving portion. I ate on Wednesday evening with a friend in Smithfield and the veggie was baby zucchini and summer squash. I had 5 FIVE slices of these two veggies. Not satisfying considering being served with the dinner. I guess their goal is to get you to order a side veggies besides your entree.

    This was a first time visit. It will be the first of many. The only negative comment that we had is that we were seated 15 minutes after our scheduled reservation and about 25 minutes after we arrived and checked in. During this time, there was a lot of activity and motion between the reception desk and the dining area, but few noticeable results. Once seated, service by the wait staff was attentive, friendly, and prompt. The food was first rate from appetizer to entree to side dish to dessert. We will certainly be back.

My husband ordered the short ribs and we asked the waitress where the risotto was...it was on the plate (maybe about a tablespoon full) I would go back. I'm hoping this doesn't happen again.

Fig salad special the figs were not ripe enough therefore slight sour taste. Main pasta dish special bland, bland, bland. Had to add salt to sauce! Dessert was only part of meal I enjoyed. Second time We've been disappointed with meals there. Prior all great. Off nights???? Will giv one more shot.

    Overall the first time I went to siena thw food was great. This past week end I ordered the filet mignon and it was cold and over cook. I asked for a medium steak. I then told the waitress she said I will take care of it . They will make you a new one. The manager then came over with the same steak I sent back. I stated I asked for a medium steak and you brought the same one back and thru it back in the oven to cook it some more. The waitress was wonderful. She said if you don't mind waiting I will have you make a new one. I didn't mind waiting. Finally the third try is was perfect. I know the kitchen tends to get busy but for the future I wouldn't re heat a over cooked steak that was originally was to be medium.

    This was my third visit to Siena's; once with a group of friends, once with my brother who was visiting from out of state and most recently with my son to celebrate his birthday. Although Siena's is a place t go for special occasions, our dinner on a Tuesday evening and the capacity of the crowd indicates it is a place to go just for a week-day meal.
