The salmon dinner was excellent...consistently delicious every time. Loved eating outdoors under umbrellas close to the water; outdoor heaters available but did not need them since it warmed up that day. Waitress was very friendly. Would like a slightly larger piece of salmon, but it was very tasty and done to perfection.

They still achieved and reached their own quality bar even in midst of Covid. Yummy hot food with a warm ambience on their patio. Excellent patio heartened too.

Our Couples Christmas dinner. We LOVED everything. Best experience! I had the mushroom risotto and the bread pudding. The bread pudding was EXCELLENT! The mushroom risotto had amazing flavor. The filet mignon was perfect and the pork chops were very savory.

The food was extremely good, service was excellent, sitting in the cold breeze, not so fun. A few more heaters would be very helpful in the overall dining experience. All in all, highly recommended!!

Ordered the seafood pasta and asked to make with light white wine sauce. It ended up being closer to Alfredo Auvergne, so I asked it to be re-made, which they did. But everyone else was done with dinner so I lost my appetite.
A restaurant of this caliber and who charges high prices should not make a mistake like this.

Bella Siena's outdoor patio is a great choice for dining under the pandemic restrictions. Food was excellent, especially the calamari, Caesar salad, and pasta dishes. We look forward to returning.

When first seated, my dining companion was in total shade and feeling cold. I knew that would have a negative effect upon our dining experience and visit, so I asked our female server if there were a table with some sunshine. She moved us to a fabulous table where my companion was toasty warm. We enjoyed some wine and a lovely lunch, with very tasty food.We shall dine here again!

Dined on Outdoor Patio: Lovely view. Able to sit at table for four (although only 2 of us we were early and had reservations). Felt Covid safe. I ordered the Papperdelle with shrimp, artichokes and tomatos in lobster bisque sauce. It was good but not as good as the last time I ordered it - the sauce was different and creamier. My friend ordered the Crab Cake Panini which appeared more as a somewhat dry sandwich than a panini. Would return because of ambience and menu with other options.

This place does not disappoint! We went out with friends to celebrate the news of the day. We sat outside under heaters so were fine temperature wise. I had the lamb special (yum). My other half had the filet. One friend had the salmon; the other had the skirt steak. Everyone loved their food! Our server was excellent!!!

Bella Siena is one of our favorite restaurants in Benicia. As usual, the food is fantastic and the service is superb. Hannah is a wonderful server and very knowledgeable about the menu and wine. We sat on the patio on a cool evening. The space heater and lap blanket made it very comfortable. The tables were spaced enough to feel safe during this crazy pandemic. We recommend Bella Siena to anyone seeking a wonderful dining experience.

The food and service was fantastic as normal. But I did not feel safe from Covid. I thought they could only be at 50% capacity inside due to Covid but they were full. We were not 6 ft from other customers. Unfortunately I will not be back because of this.

Even during this crazy time, Bella Siana still remains the best restaurant in town. The food is good, wine selection is very good and the service is OK. This time our server was a little obnoxious but we can overlook that. It is just generally a great restaurant to go to with nice views and good food. It is always been a little noisy, but less so now with fewer tables in the place. As regulars, we would like to see them change up the menu a little bit. It’s a good menu if you don’t go there a lot, and they always have two or three specials as well.

We will continue going back and wish them well through this challenging time.
