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.

Siena Ristorante Toscana Ratings and Reviews
The waiter came by to see how our dinner was, but in the middle of mt husband saying “the scallops were really good, but” he walked away. The salmon was over cooked. I had the mushroom pasta—always one of my favs—but I, who never salts anything, had to salt it twice to no avail. I don’t think they salted the pasta water. Also, i was not offered fresh ground pepper for my salad even though the pepper grinder was in plain sight. Don’t think we’ll bother to go back.
I have come to Siena many, many times and last night will be our last. After we got our salads we waited 1 hour for our dinner. NO manager ever came to our table and the waiter came a couple of times but then after he told us they were plating our dinner 30 more minutes went by and no waiter. They did take several glasses of wine off the bill. Not sure what in the world went wrong but it was sad cause we loved going in the past.
I've eaten here before but not for a few years. All 4 of us ordered fish and only one of us enjoyed the meal. The chef special fish was dry and overcooked. The pecan crusted fish was soggy, more like breaded and not how the menu or waiter described it. Food was sort of bland for the price. Go for the atmosphere, but not the entrees.
Our only problem was that our server was new and apparently did NOT know the menu well enough. When My wife asked if the ravioli was in a red sauce, she responded yes. That was wrong, and my wife had to send it back, and changed her order completely. But that one experience will not dissuade us from coming in the future.
I was disappointed as they delivered two salads drowning in dressing. For such a nice restaurant someone should oversee that mistake. We sent them back but honestly, for such a nice restaurant, they shouldn’t get that wrong. I am talking a cup of dressing on one of the salads.
Try to as often as we can. We meet some friends there and it was a great experience. The wine was great and the food is outstanding. All the seafood option were some of the best I have ever had and everyone said the same thing. Their special for the night was seared tuna and I could not ask for better. Can not wait to go back. Loved it.
HAD TO FIGHT TO GET SOMETHING ON THE HAPPY HOUR MENUE FOR DINNER APPETISER IN MAIN DINING HALL. BUT AFTER GIVING THE WAITRESS A HARD TIME ABOUT IT SHE MADE IT HAPPEN BE MORE FLEXIBLE!!! OTHERWISE THE SERVICE WAS FRIENDLY AND SHE HAD A GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR ABOUT IT ALL. THE FOOD WAS FANTASTIC BUT A LITTLE EXPENSIVE THE DINING HALL IS A VERY COMFORTABLE ATMOSPHERE
The service was good. The server was a little corse, but attentive. The food quality was poor. The boar ragu was dry and and the noodles bland and stuck together. The rabbit was ice cold and the kitchen microwaved it to reheat-not edible. We have come here for family dinners for years and never had a bad experience until now. I doubt we will go back as it takes almost an hour to get there.
Food here has gone downhill. We called ahead to make sure our favorite dish would be on the menu. We were assured it would be by a surly hostess. At the table, we were told it was not on the menu. Pork was over cooked. Spaghetti was horrible. And all of it was very expensive. I won’t be coming back!
We have been to Sienna several times and have always been pleased. Met some friends at Sienna this time. Our friends first time to Sienna and they were extremely pleased with food and service. I rated them a 4 instead of a 5 because there was way too much time between ordering our entree and it being brought to our table.
