    I frequent here quite a bit and am in love with their beet salad and prosciutto salmon. Service is typically good, prices are reasonable and they have the option of sitting outside. Good place to grab a salad and people watch the folks in Market Square if you work Downtown. I've never been here for dinner.

    My husband and I eat out quite a bit in the city, and Sienna (market square, not the meatball joint) remains one of our go-to spots. The food is always great. It truly is an outstanding spot to get a great meal. The strachiatella salad with homemade cheese is one of my favorites. I had the pancetta wrapped salmon, and my husband had the gnocchi. Both were great. If you can, get a high-top table...it's a little warmer up near the bar and the noise level is much more manageable.

    Sienna is a nice small place with a dark earthy decor. Food is prepared well and well seasoned, but portion size is on the small side and prices are on the higher end. I would definitely give the meatballs a miss, not worth $6 each (my Italian grandmother is shaking her head in heaven). Cost for four drinks, one appetizer, one soup, one salad and shared pasta entree was over $100 with tip.

    Myself and a friend spent nearly four hours at Sienna. When we arrived it was very busy (Pirates playoff game that night) and then it quieted down as the night moved along. The waitress was attentive and they had no problem with me and my friend chatting for about an hour after we paid our check. I had the Bucatini and meatball and it was the best pasta I ever had, perfectly cooked. We sat inside but with the big door open it felt like we were eating out on Market Square. I would definitely go back.

    Everything was wonderful. Must tries: Chicken liver mousse and the meatballs- both were amazing. The mousse was inventive and flavorful, and the meatballs moist. Everything else we tried: white bean ravioli, prosciutto wrapped salmon, bucatini, were also all delicious. Service was great as well, very attentive and friendly.

    All the reviews and the interesting made this restaurant very appealing but it did not live up to its rep. The food was rather bland and the restaurant inflexible. What italian restaurant wont let you replace plain pasta for the starch. When we agreed to a side of plain pasta, we were given a few options as to the type of pasta. Twice the waiter came back daying that they were put of that type. We wont be returning.

    Appetizers were greatness came out quickly, however the entrees took exceptionally long to be delivered and once they arrived 3 of our 4 entrees were cold and tasted like they'd sat under heat lamps too long: the ravioli pastas as hard and dry as was the pork, and the salmon was luke warm and dark on the outside from sitting around too long.

    Sienna has one of the best bolognese sauces in the city. They serve it on a flat noodle...which, just as a personal preference, I'll check to see if it can be served on a rigatoni or spiral noodle to capture the sauce better. Yum! Try it!

    Beet salad was excellent. Service was fine also. Do not be fooled by the "stuffed" veal meatballs - very difficult to find the small piece of cheese inside the meatball. Try other Italian places in the downtown area for better overall experience.

    The atmosphere here is great for dates or even small group outings. It was also nice they had the front open on a beautiful night to get some fresh air. The service was great, as our server (and I regretfully forget his name) was very good at making sure we were having a great dining experience and kept our wine glasses full. The food was excellent and I will definitely be going back.

    Food was really good, pasta was a little too al dente for my taste but the sauce had amazing flavor. Great restaurant over all, small so not great for a group but we were able to get a party of 11 in for lunch by splitting to three adjacent tables. Service was great, love the open front into Market Square.

    My friend and I went to Sienna for a late night dinner and we were thrilled that the weather was so nice that we could eat outside. Eating outside at Market Square is a great experience in itself but when good food and good service are added it makes for a very enjoyable experience. We both started with a nice glass of wine and then split the beet and goat cheese salad. The salad was fresh and the beets flavorful with both red and gold varieties. Next we had the bucatini with meatballs. The meatballs were huge! They were stuffed with cheese and were both flavorful and moist. The red sauce was light and made a wonderful accompaniment to the meatballs and the bucatini. The bucatini was cooked to a perfect al dente firmness.

    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.

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.

    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.
