Great service!! Delicious food!! Recommended wine was excellent!! Very knowledgeable servers
We heard great things about Siena and were very excited to try it. Since it was our first time, we all ordered Siena favorites noted on the menu. The appetizers were excellent. The calamari was some of the best I’ve had and so was the eggplant. We looked forward to similarly excellent entrees.
Maybe they had an off day but all of our pastas were relatively bland and fell flat. The pastas tasted like they were just dropped into a watery sauce. My wife had a special, 2 ordered frutti di mare and finally a tagliatelle bolognese. My wife commented that her dish might have been the worst pasta she has had in RI, sad to say. It was a disappointing end to what we were hoping would be a special evening.
The Bolognese recipe is superb! It is unique to Siena. It's more about the meat, less about the tomatoes. The Eggplant Appetizer (Involtini di Melanzane) is life changing! Great menu... very nice experience.
I would recommend for after work dinner.We sat across from the kitchen a very active area
Always get a great meal here. It has become my standby place to bring my clients....specials are very good and service is very good....just great consistency here from visit to visit !
Food was very good.. service was good and our table in the window was great. we have been to siena in east greenwich and wanted to try siena in providence and found both very good in comparing . will return . our dinners were very good.except for mysons bolognese. it was just ok and not as good as expected from having it others fine dining places. pizza was great and we did enjoy a nice mothers day dinner.
Never disappointed! The food is phenomenal! Thanks for another great experience.
I had a fabulous time celebrating my birthday at Siena, one of my favorite restaurants in RI! We had to wait a little for the table, but we enjoyed drinks while we waited, and considering our huge party, it was totally understandable. All of the staff was so kind and hospitable, especially our extremely patient server who handled our whole table solo. The food was delicious as always! The ambiance was spot on. I was really touched that the restaurant even gave me a birthday card signed by all the staff! And who needs birthday cake when you can have delicious birthday bread pudding—yum!!! 🥰
I love this restaurant but was disappointed. Made reservations 7 days in advance and asked for seating in back due to noise level. Back was unavailable. Ordered Pasta Fagoila and got a piece of hard plastic measuring 1” x1/4” mixed in. Told waitress, said she was sorry and that was it. To make matters worse left a gift card with $19.00 balance on table when I left. Wonder if they will seek me out!
The Hostess checking in was huddled with the floor manager and it wasn’t a pleasant greeting, not normally a fan of this location- I prefer Smithfield or East Greenwich. They kept complaining about not having enough ice and having to get it from Smithfield or the grocery store- I just thought, not appropriate. Our server kept forgetting our drink order so consistently that it was starting to become a joke and we barely saw them, which was frustrating for the service we usually get in the other two locations. The food is consistent throughout all locations which was the only saving grace, albeit slow.
We had an amazing dinner at Sienna. The food and drinks were fabulous, and the service was extraordinary. The staff treated us like we were special. Everyone at our table raved over the appetizers, the main courses and especially the chef’s special dessert. I never would have thought I’d like a banana cheesecake, but it was one of the best desserts I’ve ever tasted. You have to try it! I will go back every time I visit Providence. I highly recommend Sienna to all.
Amazing place! My favorite restaurant on federal hill! GIANT MEATBALL
One should not force fifty characters in a review.
Excellent service and delicious food, as always. The valet service makes it very convenient and the bakers are always extremely courteous.
The service was unbelievable, from the hostess, to our bartender, to our fantastic server (Delida). We had so much fun, every dish was perfect and we took home wonderful memories. Thank you!
My sister and I brought our 88 year old aunt. We watched the Derby at the bar then went to a table where we could talk without yelling yet the place was bustling. Food was amazing. Super friendly owner who was clearly involved with making sure everyone had a great time. Can't wait to go again!!
Siena was excellent as always!! We introduced friends to the amazing involtini (rolled stuffed eggplant) appetizer and the bolognese pasta. They were delighted! We also enjoyed salmon on salad and a scallop special. The food here is always great, and I was pleased that the special wine for the evening was an organic red and it was wonderful too!
The food was amazing (as always) and the service was wonderful. I am never disappointed when dining at Siena and my mom loved going for the first time.
Our server was wonderful! We made an open table reservation and had our table waiting for us. The ambiance was nice and service was great! The food was very good! I would highly recommend Siena!
To bad, we will not be back. I'll tell at least 10 people, who will tell at least 10 people. That's a hundred or more people that will not go there anymore.
I bring my husband and another couple every year for his birthday. We come down from Boston and he wouldn't want to go any other place. We try to get there as often as we can. The food is exquisite, the atmosphere is wonderful and your employees are wonderful. We have never been disappointed. Thank you for being there.
Very good time...food was great. Had a great time with my wife for our anniversary. Nice night in Providence.
I'm lowering my rating a bit this time, because my food did not come out hot. I had ordered the Gamberi con Timo and the shrimp and risotto were warm. Both of those items need to be very hot in order to taste the best. My plate came out a few minutes after the others at my table, so it may have sat longer than it should have. There was also a very long wait for salads and entrees, and we had a very loud group sitting near us. Everything tasted delicious, but I can't help but think that mine would have been amazing if it had been hot.
Our waitress was very good, although I would have thought she might have kept us posted on the delay with the food. I'm spending a lot of money to dine here, so I expect a higher level of service.
Always a great experience! Great food and atmosphere!
Consistently at the top of their game! I have never been disappointed in either the food or service at Siena and it seems my family gravitates there every holiday or family celebratory event!
Always a nice time. Good food. Good service. An enjoyable experience.
We had a great time at Siena in Providence RI, had a reservation at 12:30 for 5 people on Easter Sunday 4/21, we sat in in front of the fire place at a round table so it was nice to look across form each other and chat. I do have to say it was loud but that was due to 2 other big parties around us. The waitress was great told us the specials and was very nice and attentive. We will go back again in a heart beat.
Fabulous as always! One our favorite restaurants. Pear Salad was excellent and the short ribs with risotto is the best ever!
My husband and I went to Providence for Easter weekend. We had theatre tickets for 7:30 so we arrived at the restaurant earlier than our reservation time. They seated us right away. I had 3 appetizers, all delicious. I wanted to try more items on the menu but I didn’t have room. The restaurant was really crowded and had a very lively atmosphere. I recommend it and I would eat there again.
Great all around!
Food and service were both excellent. Would highly recommend.
Best pink sauce I've ever had. It has a slight zing to it but not overpoweringly so. And quite reasonable considering the quality and ambience. I like the fact that you can choose to order just the pasta, OR you have the option of adding chicken or shrimp for just a few dollars more. Also, I like the fact that you have the option to switch pasta styles, i.e., my dish was called Penne with Pink Sauce, but when asked, they said I could switch to Tagliatelle (Fettucini), Linguini, or several other types. And it's large enough that you could split it with someone or have plenty to take home for leftovers.
The Caesar salad was large enough to split as an appetizer, and it was delicious. (The waitress, who was wonerful, nicely split it onto two plates for us.) I can't wait to return to one of their three locations. So far I have tried Providence and Smithfield and hope to visit the East Greenwich location soon.
Great as always... love it there
Had a wonderful meal but since we were early for our 7:30 reservation we decided to sit at a table outside. Unfortunately the noise from the motorcycles driving up & down the street was rather annoying. With that said I would definitely go back because the food & service is worth it !!!!!
I can't say enough good things about the service, especially our waitress who's name (I think) was Sydney. She was very attentive, but not overly so, which I find annoying. SHe was just right! The other staff who brought water, bread, etc were great too. But our waitress was really terrific! ANd the food was excellent, too! THe noise level was a little high, but this was a Saturday night in the city, and it was the warmest day of spring so far, so Federal Hill was jumpin'! A fun night out!
The whole package makes the 4 of us who went know we are going to be patrons again. We loved it.
Food and service were outstanding!
It’s a bit loud in the restaurant, but food and service outstanding
The food was good, but not great, except for my salad - Pompelmo - it was fabulous. Everything else was okay - chicken cutlets, swordfish, calamari, bruschetta. The fried calamari was was quite awful - boring, under cooked (pale, like champagne). It may have been the worst calamari I've ever had. The presentation was lacking. I was disappointed. I had been to Siena maybe eight years ago and have occasionally wished for some of their risotto, so that is what I had with my salad. But, it was not as I remembered and had an off taste that may have come from chicken broth. I would recommend Siena, but there are much better restaurants in Providence.
Amazing as always! We go every time we're in providence. Never disappointed!
Siena on the hill never disappoints-- the food is amazing! The staff is wonderful. Just an overall great place to dine.
