    I always enjoy Sienna. It is attractive and lively but not overwhelming or too noisy. Food is delicious, upscale comfort food. They do great things with the sides, love the vegetables. I even love the music they play. Prices are reasonable for the quality and service, so it isn't cheap but not overpriced either. Good choice for an evening out.

    Our first visit to Sienna was an enjoyable experience! We started off with some great appetizers, especially the brussels sprouts. Our entrees were also tasty and the portions were a sufficient size. We plan on returning with a larger group in the near future. This will be a great dining option when coming into the city for a musical! Be aware that the high dining tables are quite high. It may be difficult for people with hip or leg problems. I wish dining points through Open Table were available for Sienna.

    We had a nice meal, with excellent appetizers - the only complaint we had was the meatballs - they were extremely salty - we did mention this to the waiter and he offered to give us two desserts to take home, but we said no. He said there wasn't much they could do about the salt level as it is in the meat recipe. Overall though, it was a good meal and we would go back.

    Went to Sienna to celebrate an intimate retirement lunch with friends. They loved the wine selections. We all ordered different lunch dishes for sharing. I had the special pork sandwich and was not disappointed. Chef Porco is so creative with his lunch creations. Sienna is my all time favorite place to dine for both lunch and dinner. Every one left Sienna quite satisfied with their dining experience. I will be sure to make a return visit soon. Sienna's menu changes often which makes each visit an new and exciting taste sensation.

    We came in from NJ and had only read reviews on Sienna and selected based on what had been said about the food and the restaurant overall. We were really pleased. The food was absolutely delicious. I thought the service was very good. WE had an extra guest join us at the last minute and they found away to accommodate us which was really nice. The location of the restaurant is really nice too. Market Square has a really nice charm about it!

    Sienna is one of my favorite places in the city. The lunch menu is not as interesting as the dinner menu, and the prices are rather high. It would be nice to have some pasta specials at lunch prices. The service from our waitress Nicole was personable, attentive and classy. The music became very loud at times and interfered with conversation.

    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.

    Visited before a trip to the symphony, and I didn't feel out of place in a sport coat. Both of our dishes were very well executed, if a little reserved. Our server was a little difficult to understand and not very attentive, but that is my only criticism.

    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.

    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!
