I've lived in Providence for a few years now and had yet to eat at Sienna and boy am I glad I finally went!! It was AMAZING. From start to finish, everything was delicious and our service was outstanding. Our server Nathan was very well versed in everything Sienna! He was very personable, attentive and provided great suggestions which all just added to how great our night was. I can't wait to go back!

We went to Siena after going to a show at PPAC. We were celebrating my sister-in-laws 60th birthday. I made reservations and put on reservations that it was for a birthday. Upon arrival there was a birthday card on the table for her signed by the staff. The food was so good. We had the Araccini short rib for appetizer. For dinner we had a salmon/risotto special, the short-rib dinner and the Fruitti De Mare. Everything was so good. Prices are very reasonable for a Federal Hill restaurant. Will definitely be going again.

Another outstanding visit to Siena. Our table was in the bar section for the first time in a while and it's quite a bit louder so we'll request back dining room in the future. Food is ALWAYS OUTSTANDING and I feel this is the best food and value on The Hill. Two words...VEAL CHOP!!!!!

The food at Sienna is amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed the calamari and a delicious salad with salmon, candied walnuts and vinaigrette. My only critique is the noise level.

Wait server seemed to have a problem with men. Told us all the specials without once looking at my husband, or at least just speaking between us, faced ahead. He never heard/understood a word she said. Bread and plates were taken away without asking if we were finished with them. Never got appetizer plates while sharing our app, had to double use the bread plate.
Brasato was delicious , but medium veal chop arrived med. rare. Fortunately as a leftover, it will cook a bit while reheating.
Not our usual up to par dinner. We all have lousy days, I guess.
However, we’ll see you soon. Smithfield is our usual location, but this was a Monday and they were closed.

Responded on February 26, 2020

I apologize if you felt mistreated/rushed. I respectfully disagree w/the assumption your server has a problem w/all men because you didn't observe eye contact. Servers are trained to be hospitable to all. Did you happen to voice concerns you could not hear? This review lists the restaurant as 'quiet', I'm certain if asked to speak up/repeat this may have resolved. All locations use large plates & they double as appetizer plates. Servers replace items at their discretion or upon request.

Fantastic restaurant with great service. My daughter goes to school in Providence and whenever I go visit we go to Fed Hill for dinner. This was my first time at Sienna , we will definitely go back. The braised short ribs were perfectly cooked and the risotto was as good as mine.

We had a delicious dinner at Siena. The staff were friendly and attentive. They even surprised us with an anniversary dessert. We didn’t mention it. It’s in my profile on Open Table. Also, we were able to reserve a table for our son’s college graduation. The manager came to our table and we arranged everything within moments. This restaurant is must if you’re ever in RI.

Great experience! The restaurant was crowded when we arrived for our reservation and the waitstaff were very apologetic for the wait. We were somewhat fearful of being seated in the front half of the restaurant it’s very crowded and noisy, but our table was located in the back section which was quiet and roomy. Food was fantastic and so was the service. Drinks were strong.

My wife and I are vegan. They don’t really have any options on the menu other than a house salad. But the waitress said they could make a pasta or risotto for us. And although the drinks Almere great, service was great, and the food was good, I felt like $22 for 1 plate of pasta seemed a little on the high end. Otherwise, everything about our experience was wonderful!! Highly recommend Sienna!!!
