As good as it gets in this area. Salgimboca was very ROMAN! Service was impeccable. Only negative is sound. Room is over crowded and very live acoustically. Tables too close for comfort in some caxes.

The food and wine were outstanding. The service was impeccable. The interior design of the restaurant, however, is a little dated, which is charming in a way.

One of the best Italian restaurants I've eaten at. Flavors were amazing, everything was fresh and served piping hot!! We had the buffalo mozzarella with tomatoes and roasted peppers. Caesar salad was perfect and lightly dressed. I had the Yellow Snapper Oreganato and hubs has the Veal Zingara...the depth of flavors was amazing. Served wit sautéed veggies, the fennel was delightful. Tiramisu was nice, but you expect it to be light and airy so just a bit too dense for our liking. Overall excellent! Just wine, not a full bar...the Prosecco is too dry and not sweet enough for me.

It's a lovely restaurant but the food is overpriced for how good it is. We went to La Buca in Pompano a few nights before which is a family style restaurant with some similar food and it was much better. We had the pasta with truffles - $50 for a half portion and $99 for a full portion. Yikes - The bolognese pasta was just OK and the house specialty chicken was mediocre. Maybe it was an off night?

Magnificent is an understatement. Everything was impeccable. Truly a gem to enjoy. All the staff care and work hard to ensure your dining experience is beyond your expectations. We started with mixed fieds green salad and escargot. For our entrees we enjoyed lobster ravioli and a succulent and tender veal chop. We shared a bottle of Wonder wine and for dessert a perfect zabilone with espresso!! Do not miss an opportunity to experience this restaurant. Oh did I mention the 1500 wines to choose from. Wow!!!

I have been wanting to try this restaurant for almost a year and I am so glad I did. Being Italian there are always a couple dishes I order to really test the quality of food and authenticity of it. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint! Delicious food, delicious wine. Slightly disappointed in the service as we were forgotten about but the food made up for it. 😊

The food and service are always excellent. They have a very extensive wine list and are consistently listed in Wine Spectator as a “must go-to” restaurant in the West Palm area. The only negative is that we have twice ordered wines from their $50 or under list and have been disappointed in the wine quality both time. Not sure if it was coincident, or if their shelving conditions of lesser expensive wines is not as robust.

As always, La Sirena was wonderful. The service is very good, bordering on outstanding. The food selections are excellent, with flavors that are coaxed from the raw materials as only a great chef can achieve. The wine selection is wonderful, both varied and extensive. The only negative I would list is that the tables are so close to each other that simply walking through the dining room can be difficult, and the noise is fairly loud.

La carta de vinos muy buena, los platos que pedimos, la mayoría recomendaciones, muy bien elaborados pero sin nada realmente especial. Solo pedimos un postre, sabayon con frutos rojos, exquisito!!
El servicio muy atento un poco apurado para que nos retiremos, nos trajeron la cuenta sin preguntarnos si queríamos café.

This was our first dining experience at Marcello’s La Sirena, and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was impeccably prepared and presented. The lentil soup was the best I’ve ever had. My partner, who is quite a pasta connoseur, raved about the homemade pasta. We are both vegetarians and were pleased by the delicious assortment of vegetable sides. The atmosphere was quiet and elegant, and the service was beyond reproach. We were made to feel like special guests of honor, with the chef even sending a special birthday treat at the end of the meal. We will definitely return to this gem of a restaurant.
