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.

Food was awesome same as the service. Table was a little tight and the room was a little loud but mostly because everyone was having a good time!

Great location and great Italian food. Order the flight of gelato for dessert, great way to top off the homemade Pappardelle dish and baseball size meatball.

We arrived earlier than our reservation but they were able to seat us everyone working there were amazingly friendly considering how busy they were last night. Melody, our server, was knowledgeable about the menu and drinks and was able to steer us towards delicious items based on how we answered her questions Yhe food was served hot, fresh, and very quick! My husband had the squid ink pasta and I had the double--cut pork chop. The drinks and appetizers as well as the desserts were amazing! We never felt rushed or silly for asking questions. The place filled up quickly and it was loud but I could still hold a conversation. The bill was better than I anticipated. Melody told us we were family now and my husband and I felt that. We will be back again sometime.

Food was great, timing of service was impeccable (flow of apps, dinner, desert), wine list is extensive and house glasses are very good too. Our water glasses were never empty. Squid ink pasta was fantastic, as was the grilled octopus app. Overall, great experience!

We were a mixed group (3 adults, 3 kids) and everyone enjoyed their meal. Both servers and management were very attentive and helpful. Grilled octopus is a must. Very tender and not fatty/chewy like many.

Food is amazing. We were a few minutes early to our reservation and we went to the bar. The bartender was very rude and our drinks were not great. The host forgot said he would get us when our table was ready, he didn’t, we were seated 15 minutes past our reservation time. Our server was great, polite, fixed our drinks, always smiling. And the food was incredible, best pizza and baked lasagna I have ever had. Kudos to the chef and our server. AWESOME

Came here for a friend’s birthday without knowing that they charge $25 for a cake fee lol Our server just told us that there would be a fee but he didn’t tell us how much. Most restaurants don’t charge more than $15 so we were surprised when we got the bill. Fortunately we were able to talk to the manager and got it waived but why charge it at the first place if you can waive it...??
The food portion is small and the taste is ok.

The food and service were very good, but it's a very big and loud place. We didn't expect that after a long day, we were looking for something more quaint. But good food is always a good thing!

We sat near the front door at I think the first booth there and the server was fantastic - knowledgeable without having to look at the menu, passionate, good recommendations, and attentive; perfect. Blond, tattoo on inside of left write. Give her a raise.

Enjoyed the experience although we had to sit in the back section. Awful, awful place is sit compared to the rest of the tables. Definitely killed the vibe and energy of the place....because there is none back there. Way too isolated.

Stop sitting people back there!

Siena Tavern is a great modern Italian spot located in the heart of restaurant alley in Chicago. Although it is very busy area the valet services are top notch and highly recommended. We started the meal with the waygu meatball and the grilled octopus. Both were amazing and the waygu meatball was covered in cheese and their heavy meat sauce complementing the red wine selection. The grilled octopus although small was delicious served with a giardiniera that was unexpected but complemented the dish well. I got the broiled salmon which was good but not mind blowing. However, My GF dish was the most amazing pasta I have ever had. The black squid ink and lobster pasta is served with a heavy cream sauce and is worth every calorie. We finished the meal with the dark chocolate gelato cake that was heavenly. All in all come in give this iron chef restaurant a shot but do not try to be healthy with it. Get the cake, pasta and waygu meatball.

Honestly the worst experience in service I have ever had. My date and I went for a Valentine’s Day date and the waiter could not have been more rude. Not only was he disrespectful but he got our drink orders wrong multiple times and when we corrected him he made disrespectful comments geared toward women. Absolutely disgusting and disrespectful service. We will never go back and make sure others avoid this horrid service at all costs.
