About Siena Ristorante Toscana

For over 18 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.

We were sat and never acknowledged. Another table was sat 5 mins after us and received their wine order before our table was served water. Bread was also delivered to the tables around us, but no acknowledgment to our table on this round as well . After 15/20 mins of trying to figure out the disconnect, it was time to leave. The manager did reach out via phone at 9:50PM the same evening to offer a gift card, but left a vague message and didn’t appear to know what had happened. Luckily another Italian restaurant in the area met our expectations.

Started off bad, only got worse. The hostess eventually greeted me but mid-sentence she excused herself and went to look at the dining room for a little while. When she came back she invited me to wait for my companions at the bar but that area of the bar was covered by her homework-which she finally moved 10 minutes later. Once we got seated and ordered our food, it took an inordinate amount of time to arrive and was not prepared very well. It is a shame because the ambiance is great. Just seems like poor execution and/or lack of management and training.

Our favorite appetizer for years has been Siena’s frito misto. Now it is only on the happy hour menu. Seems strange that if it is still on that menu we cannot order it for a dinner appetizer. This happened at Eddie V’s with their oyster & spinach appetizer but the waiter told us he could get it for us to have with our dinner. We understand that it would be more expensive on the dinner menu than the happy hour menu. Very disappointing even though we liked the calamari appetizer we had.

We were visiting from out of town and decided to try it. Absolutely delicious. I had the traditional osso bucco. It was a slow cooked veal shank so tender it fell off the bone and melted in your mouth. Cooked to perfection. Had a Moretti beer to accompany it. We dined in a quiet upstairs dining area. Service was impeccable. Excellent menu recommendations and personal service. I would dine here on our next trip to Austin. Recommend highly.

Siena has always met our expectations for food quality, variety, wine selection, atmosphere and attentive, not hovering, service. I always leave the restaurant looking forward to my next visit.

For us the location of is ideal and the parking is not the challenge one can experience with downtown and/or large retail mixed-use project restaurants. The almond crusted trout is my personal favorite with a nice bottle of red Italian wine.

We have celebrated our anniversary at Siena for years now. While pricey, the food is consistently good and stacks up favorably with similar recipes we've had in Italy. The ambience is quite nice and the service has always been attentive without being intrusive. Would recommend a bread basket on the table instead of having to signal a wandering server.

Siena is one of our favorite spots! It's beautiful inside and out. The service is great. The food is top-notch. Atmosphere is sophisticated but comfortable. And you can even hear the conversation at your table without hearing the conversations of the tables around you. It's a lovely place!

Met with our book club and was put at a reserved table in the bar area....some of ate and some just had drinks. All was good but the waiter would not split the checks, with frankly just seemed to put a damper on the evening. Seems like its an easy enough thing to do. Waiter was rather annoyed with us it seemed. Expected more from this place.

The food is always excellent. Unfortunately, the service doesn't come near the quality of the food. The waitress that served us obviously didn't know the menu- had to keep going back to ask questions. We asked for a different item than the spinach that accompanied the fish and that seem to be a big issue. There was no flexibility in the items on the menu- take it as is or be charged extra for something that costs less than what you wanted on the substitute. Absolutely no on everything a diner asks- not a good plan when there are so many other restaurants where you can dine.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times in the past and was always very pleased with the food so I invited another couple to join us there for dinner but was very disappointed that three of the four entrées were not up to par I recalled from having dined at Siana in the past. My friend ordered a fish dish and when it arrived he commented that it looked like a shriveled piece of leather. Two of us ordered the pasta special which had some kind of pork in it that was oddly crunchy and made me wonder if it was cartilage or some other cut of pork that is distinctly al dente. my wife ordered a mushroom pasta dish with cream sauce which was very good and the salads were also good.

Food was VERY under par for this restaurant. I ordered the Bronzino special; it was suppose to come with artichoke hearts, potatoes and maybe 2 other veggies. I only got potatoes which I would not have ordered this for just fish and potatoes. The fish was not have much flavor and even worse had bones and scales! Very unappetizing. Such a poor meal for $28. Wish I had my money back!!!!

We went on a friend's recommendation. The food was beautiful and delicious. The wines were a bit over the top price wise. I asked for an intimate spot for an anniversary. My husband and I appreciate the ability to have intimate conversation on a special date. The hostess made an attempt and placed us at a table for 2, upstairs in the balcony next to a window. Unfortunately for us, there was an extraordinarily loud woman 2 tables away that prevented us from being able to hear each other. The service was mediocre. I would recommend as a place to try for yourself if you appreciate well-prepared food. I wouldn't recommend it for an intimate dinner. There's not much you can do to attenuate sound in a decor of stone. It's beautiful, but loud.
