Italian
A polished and energetic restaurant with Italian and Mediterranean cuisine curated by Dineamic Hospitality'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.

We had an excellent experience at Siena. Our waitress (Amy) was amazing and so personable. She recommended a couple dishes and she was spot on. With indoor dining closed the outdoor set-up was really nice and we enjoyed a great meal and evening. We will be back when we return to Chicago.

Food is very overpriced. Not sure if they are struggling with the pandemic,
But food was not fresh and vegetable sides were $12 and they were small and definitely frozen vegetables.

We had to eat outside so it was freezing and ambiance was bad.

Everything was delicious. Black ink pasta was slightly overcooked, but not big deal. It just depends on how you like your pasta. Pizza was amazing, it is one of my favorite pizzas in Chicago.

The octopus app was great! The signature meatball got mixed reviews and was not a good value. We couldn't believe we spent $300 on a meal that had mixed reviews (at best) and service was inconsistent. We won't be back.

We ate outside for lunch on Friday since the rules were just changed to no indoor dining. Our temperature was taken on our wrists. I did the weekday wine lunch. Amazing deal. All I can drink wine, plus i can switch up to different wines if I want to. I ordered the Meatball, it comes with toasted bread on the side and I also ordered a side of potatoes. The meatball is juicy and very tasty, I will actually order this again for my meal. My date ordered the cheeseburger. His burger was cooked to his liking. Service was excellent, our waiter made sure if we needed anything while giving us time for conversation, the restaurant made sure we were comfortable in the cold with the heaters nearby.

Really busy at 2p today, very few open tables... Almost to busy in these times. Ordered the truffle omelette and added the pancetta bacon and then the king crab hash. The hash looked more like an app sized dish but delicious. Food was great overall and service excellent.

the food was absolutely amazing. We were a group of four and we all ordered different kinds of pasta and they were all phenomenal in their own right. I think we all were still dreaming about the dessert the next day. HANDS DOWN BEST ITALIAN IN THE STATES!

They did a great job of socially distancing the restaurant. Christian was a phenomenal server and I would recommend him to anyone! Food was amazing as always, get the gnocchi, you won’t be disappointed.

The food was good, -octopus- but the service was mediocre from start to finish. He even gave us the wrong check and we waited another 10 minutes to get the correct one!

Meh.. picked this place because their menu was somewhat unusual and interesting. Had truffle garlic pizza and squid ink pasta, pasta was very overcooked and was very blend. It was really bad.. Mushroom pizza was ok but nothing special. Place looked nice but if you can’t make flavorful dishes, why bother.
