We went early in the evening at about 6:30 pm, but it started to pick up by the time we were into our first course. We had the Bruschetta, of which we had the chef create half vegan and half regular which basically eliminated the herb creme, but it was very good. Next, my date had the lemon spaghetti with shrimp which she said was very good. Because I am Vegan the chef created an item, not on the menu especially for me. It was a combination of roasted zucchini, yellow squash, pine nuts and arugula on a beet puree. Very good! Service was friendly and accommodating. Nice job!

My friend and I had a lovely meal at Sienna on the Square. A very professional and attentive staff welcomed us with courtesy and quick service. We enjoyed a bottle of Collier Creek Pinot Noir and two delicious entrees. I had the rock shrimp and crabs risotto which was wonderful! If I had to be picky the portion was on the smaller side but was perfect to fill me up! A reply lovely place for a good meal and nice conversation. It was not too loud despite the front being open to the market square night market.

Food was on the expensive side. Pasta noodles were hard and gummy. Marinara sauce was flavorless and their famous meatballs were hard as rocks.

Service was slow (non existent) and we finally flagged down a server as we needed to get moving. The chopped salads included chopped lettuce, some croutons and a few flecks of onion and tomato. We all should expect more.

This was my first time at Sienna On the Square. I was underwhelmed. The service was just ok and honestly my shrimp parmigiana was expensive and cold when it arrived. The menu is limited and too overpriced for a week day lunch. Won't be back.

First, I want to say that I made the reservation for 4:15 PM, thinking that the play I was attending would be out by that time. During the second half of the play, I realized I was wrong and called the restaurant to let them know that I wouldn't make the time. Jeff changed the time to 5:15 and said that we may need to sit at the bar but that he and the staff would try to get us a table. When we got to the restaurant, Nicole was able to seat us at a booth because it wouldn't be needed until 6:30 PM. I really appreciated how accommodating they were even though I had made a mistake in making the reservation. Our server was equally attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and wine selections.

Service was exceptional. The table had a slight wobble, and before we knew it, someone was over to correct it without us saying a word. When I finished my salad, I accidentally placed my silverware on the empty plate. Moments later someone appeared with new silverware without me asking. Overall, it was such a pleasant experience. Some of the best service we have experienced in the city and the food was excellent! Will definitely be going again soon.

The lamb ravioli was very delicious, as was the starter salad with the goat cheese and arugula (can't remember the name of it but it was really good). The large meatball was also very good, although I would have liked to have had more cheese inside...it seemed a little skimpy to me. But the flavor was excellent anyway.

Loved the new booths and lighter colors! The food was excellent with some excellent surprises with the meat and cheese tray and the olive oil spread for the bread. The wine list was not overpriced and had excellent quality of the Super Tuscan, Chardonnay, and white blend we tried. I will be back.

This restaurant has gone down hill since first opening. It used to be fit for foodies and is now catering to those who have an expectation of Italian food equivalent to the Olive Garden. They made a huge mistake changing the menu. Not very exciting, atmosphere used to be more upscale and is now casual, too brightly lit and poor taste in music for this type of restaurant (Billy Ocean, Pat Benetar..) I came to celebrate a special anniversary and there was nothing special about it.
