The experience at dinner was excellent and the food was everything we had hoped for and then some. The one complaint I have is we got placed at the worst table right where the exit from the kitchen is. Would have much preferred a seat in the quieter area in the back, but regardless it was still a great experience. The cocktails were fantastic, I would strongly recommend the birch and bourbon (basically a maker’s old fashioned) as it was balanced perfectly by the bartender. Then the food was simply incredible. My girlfriend and I split the pompette grande (giant meatball), vodka pizza and pesto penne dish. The pizza was incredibly as it was a spicy vodka sauce and everything else was similarly great. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a romantic evening and great Italian cuisine, next time I would simply request a table in the back!

The calamari and veal were very good. The chicken Milanese was very disappointing. Over cooked and tough. The service was great... waitress very professional and we told her so. We were seated at a table by the window which was just inches away from another table. Neither party could have a private conversation. Restaurant came highly recommend. I will try again.

The food is always good at Sienna and if you are looking for a place to meet friends and talk, the back room is a must - nice and quiet! We had a 30 year reunion of old friends from RIH and it was perfect.

I came to Siena with my husband and another couple. We were looking forward to going because the menu looked good and the reviews were great. Our experience truly exceeded our expectations. The customer service is top notch and the restuarant is well run. We were greeted kindly by both the valet gentlemen and the hostess. Our coats were checked for us as soon as we walked in. We were seated promptly at the time of our reservation. The waitress was wonderful. It seemed as though all the waitstaff and help worked together so smoothly. Everything was exceptional from the wine, appetizers, the meal and dessert. We had the bolognese which was pneumonial! We left the restaurant in awe at how well we were treated and how good the food was. We havent stopped talking about it because it's so hard to find good restaurants. We were so happy and will definately return. Thank you!
