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.

Loved the wife's butternut squash pasta. Amazing. My seabass was just ok. Her's was $18 and mine was $42. Lively atmosphere. We loved it since we had our three kids and 2 neighbor boys. Great not worrying about how loud they were as the noise level at the restaurant hid it. It wasn't deafening noise though.

I'd go back again, but would go for the carbonara jar. Didn't try it, but looked fantastic. Definitely have to go with the pasta/pizza next time.

We come here all the time - the service was really bad today. Our server needed to be asked 5 times for more toast for the meatball appetizer. Waited 20/30 minutes for our drinks. A real disappointment today.

Matt was our server, not sure if he was new and nervous or perhaps selective and unwelcoming. I am shifting towards the latter. He checked on my husband and myself a total of two times, I had to literally wave him down to check on the status of our food. The table in front of us, behind us and, on the left side of us had all received their food before us, after having been seated, after us! If it were not for the manager Sherri, this experience would have been worse. I thank her. The food was decently prepared. The service was subpar and disappointing.

We came here for Valentine’s Day and it was perfect! The energy in the place was relaxed but cool. We were seated in a little area near the bar. The lighting made the mood of Valentine’s Day more romantic.

The food tasted extraordinary. The quality was worth the price.

We will be coming back again.

Made our reservation through open table and to no fault of the restaurant, we had to wait 30 minutes after our reservation to be seated. They more than made up for it, by providing one glass of wine a piece, and 2 appetizers for the table. So above and beyond!! Food was wonderful, service was great, definitely will be going back!

We went for Downtown Dining Week. The restaurant is modern and spacious. There is a very nice bar with ample seating. We started with coccoli which was amazing. I had the orecchiette with prosciutto sausage which is something I’ve never seen at any other Italian restaurant. The chicken diavolo was excellent too. For dessert my wife had the bomboloni and I had the tiramisu. My tiramisu was great but next time I’m having the bomboloni which came with three sauces in tiny, individual squirt bottles. Wine list is extensive. We ordered wine by the glass which ranged from$13 to $20. The cocktail #2 is a nice starter.

Stellar!!! From the drinks, to the food, to the ambiance, everything was great!!!

We tried the wagyu meatball (AMAZING), the smoked salmon board (again, AMAZING), the margherita pizza (brought us back to Italy), and the gnocchi (SO good). The bacon pancetta in the gnocchi really made the dish! It was delicious.

I only gave 4 stars (more 4.5) for service because we did have to wait 35 mins for our table even with having a reservation. Also, it took a long time to cash out at the bar, which wasn't too busy, once our table was ready. Our server was great and very knowledgeable. She certainly helped make the experience even better!

Highly recommend and will definitely be back again!!!

Our server was awesome and quick! She explained things if we had questions and we got all of our food so quick! I know it was a busy Saturday, only down fall is we did feel a little rushed. We ordered an appetizer and before I could even look up it was ok our table! But hey- the experience was still amazing and can’t complain about quick service! We will be back!

Food was good for the most part but not great. Pasta was surprisingly mediocre, like undercooked box pasta. The one appetizer was so incredibly salty it was off putting. Braised short rib just meh. Scallops were done perfectly however. Not a bad place but can certainly get better in the area for the same or less money.

The food is delicious. Amazing flavors and a good variety of options. I am GF and was extremely pleased with the menu. The atmosphere is top notch. Inviting textures and warm color gives Sienna Tavern a modern rustic feel. I will definitely recommend!
