Italian
For over 20 years Siena has been Austin’s premier destination for authentic Tuscan cuisine. Locally owned and operated Siena's owners wanted to share their love of Tuscany with Austin diners. Utilizing the talents of long time veteran of the Austin food scene, Chef Harvey Harris, Siena's goal is to transport the dinner from the hills of North Austin to the rolling hills of Toscana. Chef Harvey received his Master's Chef in Italian cuisine while attending culinary school in Piedmonte Italy, but his heart is in Tuscany where he lived and worked. All food at Siena is prepared to order, pasta is made fresh daily as well as all stocks and sauces. Our food is complemented by an award-wining wine cellar and served in rustic, elegant surroundings of thick stone walls and tall wood-beamed ceilings. Whether visiting for a light lunch, happy hour, special event, or a romantic evening, experience the welcoming charm of Tuscany close to home.

First visit to this restaurant and it was an excellent experience. Our wait person Claudine made a recommendation for an Italian wine that I enjoyed very much. All the dishes were beautifully prepared and extremely tasty. Will definitely return again soon.

The fig appetizer was the best, perfect size, taste and presentation. We were not hurried and waitress was always looking out for us. We are long time patrons and appreciate the white table cloths and cloth napkins that are so rare nowadays.

Great place for a special occasion. Seating upstairs (if you can handle the stairs) eliminates any noise problem.

We love Siena and had another great experience. Our server was wonderful and everything was delicious. One suggestion: for the steak salad special, if the guest also orders a leafy green salad as an appetizer, it may be good to double check that they know they're ordering two salads for their meal. I didn't mind, but I hadn't read the description of the special as a salad so would have appreciated the heads up.

Not pleased with changes to the menu. We liked the original calamari better, and my husband did not enjoy the gnocchi with boar as much as the original pasta. I did not like the tomato soup at all, and I was sad that there was only one soup to choose from. The mele salad was still excellent. $7.00 for a bottle of Pelegrino is outrageous.

My husband and I went to Siena Ristorante to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We sat outside and even though it was 89 degrees there was plenty of shade and a nice breeze. The food was delicious and it was served course style so we had time to sit and relax after our appetizer and meal. I would definitely come back!

Decent restaurant overall but nothing special.

Service was lacking, but probably due to restaurant staff being overworked and under supported. Please start providing menus again: everyone knows this practice doesn't make diners any safer, and is just a theatrical act for optics.

If the waitstaff tries to upsell you on adding proteins to your dish: don't do it. The chef knew what they were doing when they made the menu.

Please hire more waitstaff. By the time I was brought a cocktail menu our meal was already over.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Austin. Chef outdid himself as usual. Such incredible value for what was spent. Sam, our waitstaff person was a wealth of information and good suggestions. The new spritzer that we tried was the perfect Spring drink— very light & refreshing. The orange bitters were not too overpowering either. My favorite starters were both the figs & mussels. My salmon was art for the taste as were my dining companions dishes— one wild boar, the other scallops. It goes without saying that our dining experience was tops and we most definitely will be returning soon.

Great bar and dining room ambiance and the food and service is also consistently excellent. We've eaten here a number of times over the years but this is the first since the Covid pandemic (ending). All staff wear masks and the dining rooms (downstairs and upstairs) are roomy. The restaurant reminds me of a fine NY city Italian Restaurant like Felidia's on 58th street in Manhattan. Prices are reasonable for the quality and ambiance - figure $145 for two including a couple of glasses of wine. By the way, the wine list is one of the best around.

An astoundingly pleasant, romantic experience in dining. This was our anniversary and first time eating here. The staff are some of the most genuinely warm folks we have ever been served by. The food was delicious. Quite possibly the best Italian food I’ve ever had. Everything is juicy, tasty, flavorful to perfection. A really neat ambience, makes you feel like you are in Tuscany itself in some particular ways. Highly recommend for any special occasion!

First visit - do not let them seat you upstairs the service is not good. Waitress was very nice by stretched very thin. Food took an hour to get to table. Pasta must have been under the heat lamp for a while. Not very good. The pork chop good flavor but raw in the middle. Drink lacked finishes (no cherry). Took multiple asks for bread. I typically do not write reviews but we were really looking to some good Italian but really let down. Will not be back.
