    This place had the perfect ambiance for that nice romantic dinner you've been wanted to surprise your wife with. The seafood is delicious. 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.

    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.

    I absolutely love Siena. The food is delicious, however we ordered calamari and the plate was almost empty. 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.

    Last sat. Night dined here and was just not on spot that nite. Mussel app not great. Mussels tiniest ever saw. Meatball app was dry and over cooked which is usually my favorite. 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.

    First time at Siena and it was a very good experience the only complaint was my wife's sirloin being a bit tough to chew and it was ordered Med-rare so it was not due to over cooking. My braised ribs over risotto was one of the best I've had! Our waiter sorry can't recall his name (server #24) was on the ball and very polite something I've missed in wait-staff an many restaurants. Will definitely go back!

    We went to Sienas with a couple that we only see twice a year. So we like to sit and chat a bit before dinner, this was communicated to our server Heather and she was perfect not to disturb us, but always made sure we had what we needed, we were not rushed at all. Dinner was perfect. Did I mention this was our first time to Sienas in Smithfield and it will not be our last and we will request Heather be our server upon our return.

    We entertained our son and daughter in law at Siena on Sunday night to celebrate their anniversary. Our daughter and son in law also joined us. Our experience was excellent. The service was outstanding, our waiter very well versed in describing the way that every dish would be prepared, and the food, was delicious upon arrival. It was a lovely evening with excellent food, drinks and wine. We look forward to our next visit.

    We were a group of six who hadn't seen each other in a long time so were really happy to be seated at a round table. We thought that would foster easier group conversation, but that was not achievable at Siena (Smithfield). I could barely hear the person right next to me. If you can get past having to yell across the table, then you can enjoy the delicious food they serve. All of our meals were delicious. I had a Filet Mignon special that was heavenly. As were the other two specials we ordered, Salmon and short ribs. In addition, my sister's veal scalapini and my brother in law's veal chop were just as ordered.....tender and tasty.

    This was our first visit to Sienna in Smithfield. We have previously dined at both the Providence and East Greenwich locations. The food in Smithfield was fabulous and our waiter, Matthew, was perfect. He allowed us plenty of time to talk and just enjoy the evening. He was not the least bit intrusive. Everything was excellent! We will definitely return.

    First time dining at Siena based on a recommendation from a friend. Reservations were for 7 pm, we were seated right on time. Our server, Brianna(sp) was cordial and knowledgable. We tried one of their tasting boards which had a nice assortment of meats, cheese and olives, very tasty. We then moved on to an app, my friend said to try the polpette, a giant meatball made with sirloin and veal, more than enough for 2 people to split. My wife had fruite de mare for her entree and I had tagliatelle with bolognese sauce. Both entrees were superb and we both had enough left to bring home. A great experience overall and one we will definitely repeat!

    We love it here. We always enjoy the food and service. While East Greenwich is my favorite of the three Siena restaurants for ambiance this is second compared to Providence. (Although I would never, ever accept to be seated in the "bar" area). The food is consistent between all three and that is great. The service is always impeccable! Just love to go here whether for a quick bite or a special occasion.
