Our server, Sydney, was fantastic! She was sweet, friendly, knowledgeable and completely spot on with her service. Our food was excellent and portion sizes were perfect. The dining was a bit crowded with tables pretty close together would really be only complaint. We would definitely come back and will recommend to friends.

The quiet room is in the back room up a few steps. No view or windows but decidedly more tranquil than the front. Balsamic calamari a standout starter. Desserts, especially the budino, are delicious. Attentive, informed service.

On a not too busy late Sunday afternoon, we enjoyed a delightful dinner at the Providence Siena. Our food requests were accommodated(modified cheese board and Veal Parm), and the service provided by Kayla was superb. Only irritation was a loud group at the bar. Luckily they left shortly after we arrived.Plenty of wine choices are available. We were full so we finished our meal with some fresh coffee and Bailey’s. Valet parking is available and there is an opportunity to stroll Atwells Avenue and check DiPasquale Square for Michael Dutra and the Sinatra Band. Many great restaurant choices on the Hill and Siena holds its own!

We enjoyed a nice dinner/evening. We started with a Margherita Pizza (crust well done), and it was awesome. We did not choose any of the specials for entrees but we chose a pasta dish and a dinner salad with salmon. Very generous piece of salmon that was very tasty. It is a noisy place, but the food is very good. It did take time to get the coffee and the dessert. The cappuccino was cold so we sent it back. It is a busy restaurant on a Saturday night which is probably why the ending was delayed. We would return again.

This is usually our favorite restaurant but the service was really slow this time. I think the kitchen lost our slip. Took an hour and twenty minutes to get our main course. The waitress never kept us updated and never apologized nor did a manager.

While I’ve always considered this restaurant to be one of the best in the area, unfortunately last night it did not hold up to that standard.

The food was mediocre and this will probably be my last time coming here for dinner.

My daughter and I had the pleasure to visit your restaurant Friday evening before her college move in day. We very late for our 5:30 reservation (I had called to say we would be late) and the hostess was welcoming and gracious! We sat towards the back which was great; we could talk easily. Our server was wonderful along with the support staff (our water glasses were never empty). The food was fantastic and was well orchestrated in timing. The stand out item was the special creme brulee with chocolate on the bottom. A perfect execution of custard with a warm top with silky chocolate underneath the custard. Wow this should be a regular offering! Thank you for a wonderful and memorable experience. We will be back again.

Came here for my wife's birthday, it's her favorite restaurant! The food was delicious but the service was mediocre at best. We ordered one of the cheese boards and our friend who has celiac asked for the bread on a separate plate; our waitress assured us that it was. The bread ended up coming on the same plate and our waitress didnt even seem to notice. More importantly she seemed to be rushing us the entire time! We had our food for about 5 minutes when she came over and said "just taking your last few bites?"

Restaurant was loud; waitress was aloof and while efficient cared not about our experience; meat was tough with poor flavor; bolognese was dry and one note; Margherita pizza was good as was mushroom pasta; doughboy dessert was tough and dull.

We had a great experience at Siena. Service and food were excellent - and they were also very flexible when we requested last minute time change. It was my wife's birthday and they did a nice thing by having a birthday card on the table when we sat down - also decorated our dessert with "Happy Birthday"...a very nice touch!

From the valet to desert it was a fantastic meal and experience. Right after we were seated the table next to us with a window view was empty and we asked to move and they accommodated us no problem. The eggplant appetizer was delicious and our entrées were outstanding as well. I had the swordfish and scallop special and my girlfriend had the shrimp and risotto. It was also my girlfriend’s birthday and the staff went out of their way to make it a very special one thank you so much can’t wait to go back

I have eaten at Siena several times and always loved the food and the ambience. This time I was seated in the front of the restaurant which was very loud, to the point of not really being able to have a conversation with my friend. The food was average, and we were seated after our reservation time. I will come back to Siena, but perhaps with a bit less enthusiasm than in the past.

We've traveled to Providence and eaten at Siena twice, and have been absolutely thrilled with our service and meals at this fine restaurant both times. Our waitress was incredibly professional and friendly, even while handling a full load of tables. Attentive service, no long waits between courses, delicious cocktails and out-of-this world desserts. The manager was extremely professional and enthusiastic about the restaurant and the teamwork displayed by the entire crew made both of our visits memorable. Siena is a true gem and not to be missed!

The hostess possibly was new? We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation. The entrance is loud and small..she checked us in and was going to seat us but was stopped by another employee. Instead of saying it will be just a minute or explaining they both left our party standing in the entryway while they went to the bar and seated people from there asking if they were ready to be seated? Even though their entire party was not there yet. We felt like we were in the way of staff trying to move about and of other diners trying to eat. They could have told us we could go to the bar and wait? Not a great first impression.
Fortunately we had a great waitress.....and the food was delicious and plentiful. Redemption...there were a few staff people that waltzed around with an all important attitude. One with very clunky noisy shoes on the hardwood floors...just added to the noise level. All in all I will give the place a 4 star rating.

Five of us went to dinner on Sunday after seeing Hamilton at PPAC. Our table was ready when we arrived; our server IVY couldn't have been more personable, helpful, knowledgeable and courteous and we had a very relaxing, enjoyable meal.
The food was absolutely DELICIOUS-from the calamari to the fabulous desserts. We couldn't have asked for a more delicious meal served by a terrific waitress!
We shall return!!!!

In hindsight, when in federal Hill order pasta. I had seafood which wasn't the greatest. The cod was more chewy than flaky and the couscous was flavorless, until I added salt , then it tasted like salt. The waitress was spot on, but the food has been better during other visits
