Italian
A polished and energetic restaurant with Italian and Mediterranean cuisine curated by DineAmic Group's Chef/Partner, Fabio Viviani, also commonly known for his Celebrity Chef accolade as Bravo's "Top Chef Fan Favorite." The décor reflects a hybrid of a rustic Italian market, a fine dining restaurant and a modern, industrial tavern, bridging old world comfort and hospitality with a contemporary menu and design. When setting foot into this 10,000-square-foot eatery for lunch, dinner, late night cocktails or weekend brunch, you can expect to taste the same "from-scratch" Italian cooking fundamentals in pastas, pizzas, mozzarellas, gelato and everything between.

The food was good, but for what it is I'd say over-priced. Our waiter seemed a bit irritated with us. We were sitting outside because the weather was beautiful, but since its on a noisy street the ambiance is not as nice as inside. This was our second time there - but had not been there in years. Will not rush back.

The service & food were great but be prepared- there is a DJ & it sounds like you are eating in a nightclub! Not for children or elderly or anyone who wants to talk to their dinner companions.

Food was great and Melody was an excellent server. The only thing I would have changed is the (many) male servers standing around the dish station fooling around. It was distracting during our meal and probably not the best way to show professionalism of your craft.

This was my first time here and we both enjoyed our meal. The staff was attentive and knew the menu well. IT's very good, but the price points seem a bit high even for a River North location. It would be great for special occasions.

We sat outside on a beautiful evening and had a delicious meal. Siena Tavern was very busy but the staff was still very attentive and we did not feel rushed. Our server let us take our time and leisurely dine. Our food was very good although a bit pricey. The bar inside was hopping and the drinks are tasty. I would recommend this restaurant for a group.

I've been here a few times for dinner and it is always spectacular, but this time I needed a place to meet with friends for brunch and decided to give that menu a try. Great options for both sweet and savory. The monkeybread was fun and delicious, and my truffled scrambled eggs and goat cheese toast was perfect - soft, tasty eggs and crispy toast. Everyone seemed happy with their options and portion sizes. The restaurant wasn't too busy but definitely had a nice hum of conversation. We were able to chat and enjoy the day. My only disappointment was that I specifically made a reservation for 5, but they squeezed us into a small half-circle booth that was better suited to 4 people, so we were not as comfortable as could be.

Had an early dinner before a show. Our waiter, Elmer, was very helpful and attentive, giving us some good recommendations. We ordered the coccoli - little popovers with prosciutto, cheese, truffle honey. These were my favorite! We decided to split the chopped salad (okay), the brick chicken diavolo (extremely tender and juicy, very tasty, but we wish that we would have tried something a little more memorable), some Brussels sprouts on the side (also tasty, but not special). For dessert, we opted for the tiramisu, which was fantastic! I don’t usually care for this dessert which often is dense and soggy, this was light and creamy and delicious! They had a lovely wine selection as well. I would return and try the pastas or pizzas.

The food was amazing! The waitstaff was wonderful! The Host left something to be desired. I had a reservation for 8. I tried to change the reservation to 10 more than 5 hours beforehand. I was told no, so i assumes all the reservations were book. We get there and the restaurant is empty. EMPTY.

Having gone their numerous times before, this was a disappointing visit. It started with a flat mimosa. The smoked salmon platter at $17 is not worth it at all, barely an ounce of smoked salmon, if that, with accompaniments. I ordered the grilled octopus and there was way too much balsamic vinegar and lemon juice, the octopus was swimming in it so it defeats the “grilled” preparation since it was very soggy. My friend ordered the cacio e pepe pasta and it was very wet in a cream sauce that really did not have any taste with no pecorino cheese to taste and overrun with pepper. We discussed this with one of the managers and he said he has heard it before but management is not responsive to making changes. It’s really too bad!
