Great service. Food was good, especially the chocolate cake. Veal saltimbucca was ok,not really how I like it. The evening was spoiled for me because the area was very cold.

Siena is our "go-to" restaurant when we want high quality food with good service. It's a friendly, well run establishment whose wait staff is well trained, efficient, and motivated. It's always a pleasure to dine at Siena as it has never let us down. We really do not eat out often and have been disappointed too many times. When we find something good, we stick with it. Siena don't change a thing.

Because it was so quiet and the tables close together we whispered to each other so as not to be overheard or disrupt others, but I certainly wouldn't let that stop me from going back. Everything was delicious.

The variety of the food selections and the preparation was superb! Our waitress was more than an employee of Sienna; it was as if she was a member of our family who was serving us and taking us through the entire process.

I was so disappointed in my meal. I get Frutti de Mare wherever I go, although I got the similar seafood Napoli dish but with pasta @ Sienna. I got a large lobster SHELL (no lobster in it!) & a lobster claw. That’s just plain rude - I don’t need a huge shell sitting on the top of my pasta! Second, the appetizer sliced bread is horrendous - soft white sliced bread - awful. I’m really into the bread & like the ciabatta or bread that is hard on outside & soft on inside. Third, the meal was too soupy. Fourth, I asked for the dish but with NO fish. What I got was a meal chock full of fish! Totally ruined the dish. I told waitress & she said “Oh so sorry!” ? So, I don’t mind paying the price for a delicious meal but that was a waste. I will not be back but will be going to my regular favorite Italian restaurants instead - Romana Trattoria & Osteria Toscana.

Siena's food is consistent and service is with a smile and lots of assistance when needed. We absolutely love the Cortona Pizza with the prosciutto, roasted dates, mozzarella, gorgonzola, caramelized onions & fig purée. It just does not get any tastier. The swordfish entree is a favorite of my husband and mine is the Brasato, a tender boneless beef short rib braised with wine, vegetables, tomato, garlic and stock, served over a creamy parmigiano-reggiano risotto. I could eat that every day of the week!!! Very filling and oh so good!

I feel badly posting a negative review.....the food is still quite nice, but I’ve had this same experience the last few times I’ve gone to Siena: the service is lacking, slow and inattentive. I tend to tip generously, since I don’t want to take it out on the wait staff. There is obviously a management problem. I feel bad for the staff, who are working very hard. But the pace of the meal is glacial, drink refills are hard to come by, and it’s impossible to get anyone’s attention there. If I’m paying close to $250 for 2 people, I’d like my water refilled . I think Siena has lost its touch

Usually a 5 star experience but only 3 this time. Firstly, the hostess did not look up from the computer when we arrived... No eye contact to the point that when I told her we'd wait at the bar I didn't think she'd be able to find us when the table was available! The table was going to be a while so we stayed at the bar. Service was very slow and the pasta dish we love so much was way under cooked and chewy. Otherwise, always good value, love sitting at the bar tables and making new friends... Chocolate bread pudding to die for!

Our dinner experience began with a tasty Inverno salad which we shared. It was Mesculin greens, arugula and radicchio tossed with dried dates, cranberries, gorgonzola cheese & a cranberry vinaigrette dressing and topped with shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and candied walnuts. For our entrees, an excellent swordfish and a chicken dish with pumpkin risotto were very much enjoyed. Added to this was a side of fantastic caramelized brussel sprouts.

Great place to go for dinner. We have season's tickets to PPAC and received a business card from Siena in our season's tickets package offering a free appetizer (up to $14). We decided to take advantage of the offer and made a reservation for dinner. Yes, highly recommend you make a reservation! Siena is very popular and prime dining times seem to book several days in advance. This was our first visit to taste Siena's Tuscan cuisine. Food was fantastic. We ordered an appetizer, cocktails, entree and dessert. Dining was leisurely, but not slow. We felt neither rushed nor ignored; timing between courses was perfect. From start to finish, it took 2 hours; so, going to Siena East Greenwich before an 8pm production at PPAC, we allowed 3 hours: 5pm reservation, 2 hour dining window, 1/2 hr travel to PPAC, 1/2 hour to get settled at the theatre. If you don't expect to enjoy dessert, you can probably do your reservation for 5:30pm. Our wait-person, Jeff, was great! Very knowledgeable and friendly. Nice guy. Good eats. Enjoy! Coming from Westerly, we decided on the East Greenwich location instead of the Providence location because we didn't want to deal with parking in Providence at a restaurant AND at PPAC. Siena East Greenwich has plenty of parking and is not far from I-95.

Valentines Day dinner was plenty busy but another Siena showcase performance. Wife had terrific short ribs and staff accommodated some dairy/lactose needs. I enjoyed (yet again) the tagliatelle bolognese which is always special and well worth a daily visit. :). Stephanie(service) was outstanding, knowledgeable, fun, accommodating and rounded out a nice experience for us.
Compliments to Siena for another job well done.

We made a reservation through OpenTable for two, but when we arrived the hotesses were rude, preoccupied and said that they could not accommodate us and that there was a ten-minute wait. Over the next 40 minutes, there was no update and the bar was full of diners, so the bartender could not serve us, and the patrons were loud, the hostesses continued to be disorganized. We have been at Siena - E.G. 2 times before, and experienced the same situation so it just was not a situation of dining the day before Valentine's day, and have never had this experience at Siena - Smithfield; the manager and waitress made up for the wait with appetizers and great service, but the food was mediocre. I would recommend Vanda just 4 miles down the road.
