    We were looking for a good Italian meal in a relaxed dining atmosphere. We got both at Sienna Sulla Piazza. Lovely arugula salad and a truly traditional Caesar salad with anchovies included. Pappardelle Bolognese was to die for - pasta properly cooked al dente, and the meat sauce was one of the better we've had. Rabbit potato gnocchi was light and delicious. Our waiter was pleasant and attentive. Dessert was not memorable.

    Sienna is a favorite spot for downtown Pittsburgh. Intimate, yet comfortable, finding a balance between trendy and relaxed. Food is fit for foodies, but non foodies will enjoy it as well. Fun location at Market Square next to a fun late night scene.

    I made reservations for 3 people for lunch for 1:00 PM on Friday, August 15th and we had to wait until 1:20 or so to be seated. No tables for 3 were available at 1:00 PM. Even though, we didn't get seated until 1:20 or so, the lunch was very good and we didn't have to pay for our lunch. I thought that was very nice to compensate us. THANK YOU.

    This was our first dining experience at Sienna and the food and our server did not disappoint! The dinner menu offers a nice variety of antipasti, soup/salad, pasta and meats/fish and there is also a nice selection of wines by the glass. We ordered the prosciutto wrapped Atlantic salmon and the dorade which were both amazing! The service was well-timed and very appropriately attentive. We were seated at a small table in the bar area that gave us a nice view of the entire restaurant. I would highly recommend Sienna and look forward to returning to taste some more of Chef Porco's cuisine! P.S. The valet parking option at Market Square is a fabulous idea! Cost is $7 if you dine at one of the restaurants on the Square.

    My husband and I have been going to Sienna since it opened. Truly, we've never had a bad meal...only great ones. My favorites: start with the stracciatella over arugula. Wow. Wow. I wish they didn't make such a big deal over the meatball thing. There's so many other items to enjoy...like the short ribs.

    Uncomfortable seating (my back to the door, and the upper bar area looming above me) with a slow service start, almost had me regretting this choice. Our appetizer arrived 1/2 hr. into our visit, and took off the edge. All in all, our food was exceptional. (caprese flatbread, caesar salad, tomato basil soup, chicken entree. But my pasta dish left me a little unsatisfied. While the veal meatballs were generous in size and very delicious, the noodles were overcooked and the sauce tasted like it had been sitting/burning in the bottom of the pot for a day. Pricey, but we would consider coming back now knowing the limited seating choices.

    Beautiful little restaurant reminded me of the ones in the Trastevere section of Rome. Waitress was wonderful and knew the ingredients to all the items and could recommend gluten free dishes. Food was amazing with complex flavors you just find in the states. We had chopped salad, beet salad, fish special, shrimp and tomato risotto all gluten free, and lamb meatballs which want gf. All very good.

    Our table wasn't outside but it was under the open doors so we could hear some of the music from the square, but the restaurant music sort of drowned it out. Food was great! Rabbit gnocchi, octopus salad, beet salad, chocolate panne cotta. One negative was gnats. Lots of them. Only relief was when the air came on. The don't like breezes.

    Outstanding soups! Change with the seasons and all are amazing. Crave the current wonderful melon gazpacho! The sausage and potato soup was great during that this last, long winter. Last summer's cold corn with crab soup was fantastic. Salads and flat breads are excellent. Ditto for pasta and risotto. Always a great experience!

    We loved the decor. Beautiful! I would come back to sit at the bar and order some drinks and the flat bread pizza with friends. The entrees, linguine and clams was salty. The mozzarella stuffed veal meatball dish, eh. The pasta they serve with it was terrible and hard to eat. Good coffee and Zeppoli dessert. The service was good, very nice, friendly but everything seemed to take a very long time for a Sunday night. We were there for 2 hours. We are Italian, so we have high standards for great taste when it comes to pasta and sauce. We wouldn't come back for the entrees but would for a glass of wine at the bar. The ambiance was wonderful.

    It took too long for the food to be served. It also took too long to get the check and for the waitress to pick up the check. We were there at lunch and needed to get back to work. We were late getting back to work. I would go again because the food is very good. I would just let the waitress know that we need to be on our way in an hour.

    Fun dinner in a cool setting. Food was good but could have been great if the kitchen cut back on some overwhelming flavors. Maybe an off night. Way too many caperberries in the tuna tartar, too much salt in the tomato sauce, balsamic vinegar macerated too long in the strawberries with the delish chocolate pannacotta. Very good short rib and orzo mac and cheese.

    This was our first time at Sienna but it won't be our last. What a great restaurant. It started with our waiter Louie who was very friendly , helpful and knowledgeable about the food and wine. His recommendation did not disappoint and his detail to service rivaled many upscale NYC restaurants that we have been to. The food was off the charts delicious and the servings where sized just right for our tastes. And the best part was the fact that nothing was rushed. Thanks again to Louie & Sienna for a fun night of dinning. Will be back

    We chose to lunch on farmers market day in the square. The energy level was high. We were seated inside but the large overhead door was wide open to let in the fresh air and ambiance of the square. Still the noise level was not bad. Lunch was great, we each had a salad with a protein. My friend chose shrimp I opted for the meatball. Served on the side it was outstanding with melted mozzarella in the center. Now I need to make my way up Penn Ave to try the meatball place. I loved the fact that the salads were not overwhelming in size. Next to try is the melon gazpacho.

    In Pittsburgh's Market Square district - Sienna's food is above average. We enjoyed an arugula salad with fresh made on the premises mozzarella for starters and it was delicious. The drink menu included very interesting and tasty cocktails that were modified for the time of year. For example, one such libation was their Spring Negroni. It was delicious, packed a punch, refreshing, and it even went well with my meal. For my main course I ordered their special item which was Rissotto with homemade sausage and melted marscapone cheese; yeah it was terrific. We sat outside and that was a pleasant experience because the weather was very cooperative. However be aware that the sidewalk, at least at our spot, was slightly but noticeably sloped.
