Everything about this restaurant is amazing. The view, food,service, decor is fantastic. I have been here several times however my girlfriends have not so we decided to do a dinner here. We all ordered different items but shared bites and everything I tried was delicious.

We will all be back soon!

this was our 1st time back to BS in 2 years. The last time prior to Covid our experience was less than stellar. Food was terrible (OI ordered my favorite meal there, and it tasted like a salt lick- the entire meal), it was super loud (i felt like i was yelling trying to talk to my husband), and the only thing that was done when i talked to the waiter about the food (she even tasted a little) was a extra side of potatoes that arrived way after my husband was done eating. I didnt even bother asking for a doggy bag. Our anniversary dinner was ruined, and I no longer had a apatite.
2 years later, we decided to try 1 more time. If anything, hopefully there would be a new cook or staff that caused the issues before. I am very happy we did. The meal was perfect. Food cooked correctly, flavors on point. It wasnt super loud, and the waiter was great. He really did make the meal. We will definitely be back.

Friends from Ohio came for a quick visit with us. We wanted to show off not only the beautiful view of the Carquinez Straits, but to share the excellent cuisine of Bella Sienna. None of us were disappointed with our delicious meals. Thank you Bella Sienna staff.

Hostess was overwhelmed and forgot we were next with reservations. Took 25 minutes to be seated ( not really a bug deal just sharing).server nice but no bacon on burger and no check within a reasonable time to ask. Waters never refilled. I love this place. My reason for this review is to hopefully let management know. They were not present while we were there. I get busy days but when we were there it wasn’t that busy ( at time we ate )

Was a madhouse of a Saturday night. I am sure the staff where all shellshocked by the end of the night.
15 minutes before our reservation we checked in and were told to return exactly at our time to check in. Doing as asked we were then told they would text us when our table was ready. Could not say who was running the show but it definitely wasn’t the staff. There were several four tops dirty The hostess was anything but cordial about it all. Roughly 25 minutes later we were seated.

Wasn’t offered the special steak of the night, would have tried it. I heard another server describing it to a neighboring table. The skirt steak is over priced. It was fatty and definitely not the quality I expected for $37.5. I thought that based on reviews I’d have a view of the water. Disappointed I wasn’t offered that option in booking. The employees run around like crazy it made me feel anxious. There is cattle calling for food delivery and no trays used. Plates stacked on top of others on arms, unsanitary. Looks like a popular place that people enjoy, I expected a whole lot more. Overall disappointing for a birthday dinner.

The food, the service (Coco) and ambience was spot on! However the duck tapped table slats that were sticking up since the tape gave way and hard plastic chairs left a large room for improvement. We will return...however we will ask for a better condition table and chairs.

This was my first time enjoying this wonderful restaurant and I can’t say enough good things about it. Everything from the service, ambiance, to the food was everything I hoped it would be and more. The food was so incredibly delicious! I can’t wait to go back and share this lovely place with my friends and family.

Excellent ambience, service, and food. Quiet enough to be able to talk with your guests.
My only suggestion: I had the portobello mushroom panini for lunch and it was very flavorful. However, the amount of mushroom in the sandwich was very skimpy-just a few very thin slices.
I would definitely come back.

The ambiance is beautiful but come early as the place fills up!! And the noise level increases. Time your meal for view of the sunset.
Service was friendly, considerate and professional.

We sat near the back window and had a wonderful view! We split the Insalata Di Arugula, the staff in the kitchen split the salad for us. Our entrees were Wild Mushroom Ravioli with a lot of mushrooms, spinach and tomatoes in a cream sauce. The other entree was Pappardelle Allo Zaferano, homemade saffron pasta, shrimp tomatoes and artichoke hearts. This is the second time I’ve ordered this dish. Our waitress was very good.
I’m looking for to my next visit.

Although we rated our experience overall as good. We did feel that the prices were high for our meals compared to other restaurants we frequent. It was my in-laws anniversary. My mother in law mentioned that she felt like her veal was overpriced for what she got. Beautiful views of bay at sunset was definitely a plus. As well as our server was very friendly. He did seem to be very busy and there would be times when there was long spans between checking on us. Maybe you need more support for your servers.

Two of my colleagues and I had a wonderful outdoor lunch on the deck at Bella Siena. Lovely ambience, great food and we never felt rushed or hurried. The food is excellent, with lovely selections for lunch. Service was a little laid back at times (forgetting to bring all of us lunch forks, delayed wait in processing the bill) but overall, this was a very nice, memorable experience.
