Sienna is one of our favorites....looking at the year, we have been there 23 times! That said, would I recommend to a friend comes with a large caveat. I was disappointed this time, with friends that were new to the place. The kitchen was unwilling to accommodate a very simple dietary requirement of a plainly grilled piece of protein (chicken breast, fish....). This wasn't a finicky eater request, it was a medical necessity and is an easy request as opposed to something complicated with ingredients, substitution or a "special order". Getting a grilled anything with a salad is on the lunch menu, therefore is in the kitchen....just unwilling to prepare for dinner. Again, an easy request for a loyal customer that will now reconsider bringing guests there.

This was our first time at Sienna and we will definitely be back. Even the native Italian in our party was happy with the food. The waitstaff did a great job of timing everything so we didn’t feel rushed and also didn’t wait. We all enjoyed the meatball appetizer and all entrees were tasty and appropriate proportions. Shared Pam Scott a was the perfect ending. Oh, and the wine selection includes some excellent choices. Atmosphere was comfortable and conducive to conversation.

On my first night in Pittsburgh, I was hoping for a great food experience and this restaurant was recommended by my hotel concierge. It was a total disappointment for a number of reasons. 1. Service was very slow. We were a group of 7 as one of the two tables at the restaurant and it took too long for them to serve. Most of us had just flown in and we were starving. So I had to ask them twice if they can speed up the orders. There were times when all the waiters were in the kitchen and it took me forever to catch their attention. 2. Food was average, too. Not a lot of options if you want to eat meat other than pork. They don't allow any custom changes in the side dishes. I asked for mashed potato instead of root vegetables (both of which existed on the menu). They checked with the kitchen twice and said that they can't do it as if I was asking for something extraordinary like caviar! Also, the new Zealand salmon was way too heavy. If the fish is fatty, you aren't supposed to add butter vinegrette on top of it!

we enjoyed a delicious dinner at sienna. they do have some, not a lot, of gluten-free options, which i was grateful for. the server was very helpful with that. given that the menu is heavy on the pasta side, more than one gluten-free pasta option would not be a hardship, one would assume. the menu is interesting and different from most italian restaurant offerings. we all enjoyed our mains. but my husband found the parsnip cake to be very dry. i enjoyed a sambuca for dessert and i appreciated the nice touch, that they were able to add an espresso bean to my sambuca.
we were offered a bar-height table, which was a shock, given that we had made our reservations over 2 weeks in advance, our reservation was for 5pm, and that we were having dinner. we were accommodated at a lower table, but it was right in the flow of traffic. we felt crowded and a chair leg could have easily dropped off the edge of the stair, which was inches away. i can see this situation in a crowded bar. but this is not in keeping with a moderately high-priced restaurant. (sorry, folks, but you can't charge $24-45 for an entree and give your guests a bar-height table that is 2.5 feet square. we had a larger table next door for pre-dinner drinks.) our server could not have been more professional. and most of our food was delicious, as i said. but given some of my observations i could not give 5 stars for all of above.

Got a sunday afternoon reservation. menu does change so there is always something new to try. We got a drink each, an appetizer, main course and desserts. Everything was great. Cost was reasonable for all of that. Amanda was our waitress. she was informed when we asked questions about the options and made suggestions. will go back again.

I had been to Sienna on the square outside for business in the summer and liked it so much I decided I would return with my son who just moved to Pittsburgh and my husband. It was perfect for an enjoyable relaxed evening out for the three of us. Service is top notch and very personable without being intrusive. Atmosphere is cozy, hip, inviting, food is delicious including the flatiron steak, the pasta with chicken and marsala cream sauce (was not heavy at all as promised by our server), and the flatbread. Only disappointment was the chocolate cake for dessert which was a little dry and slight grittiness in one or two of the clams we ordered.

All in all highly recommend for an enjoyable evening out and will certainly return. The market square area also is a very nice area for an after dinner stroll in warmer temps.

Thank you Sienna!

Sienna on the Square is a popular Tuscan spot that we had not visited in quite a while. Very close to Heinz Hall. They offer a reasonably sized menu of salads, appetizers and entrees -- not too overwhelming. I had a wonderful pasta dish, and my guest enjoyed the chicken with lemon and capers.
The place does get quite crowded and loud, and you might have to sit at high-top table in the bar area. But, all in all, a good and fun place to dine.

WOW!!!! I am so happy I found this place by chance; and luck was with me and my business guest who were "wowed" with the dinner. Food quality, taste and value were out of this world! Service was friendly, attentive, warm and genuine and gave really good advice without seeming to upsell what ever was in the kitchen. I have the good fortune to eat all over the world, and this was easily in the top 25 of places I have found... might even be a reason for me to return to Pittsburgh. I'm an idiot and missed the one thing that every other person I told I ate there asked me about.... the meatball... so there is my reason to come back. The one thing I missed that I hope they add to the menu is arancini... The wine list was spot on and well currated... I loved that the had an honest-to-red Lambrusco.... and maybe sonmeday they could add a Brachetto ... then I'd say they were in the top 5! Don't miss this place....

The Sercice was excellent and the staff very kind and friendly. We shared the meatballs, they were delicious, but I wouldn't say the same for my main course. I ordered a flat iron steak medium-well, but it came well, and the taste was ok, for sure didn't worth the 32$! Salad was tasteful but came in a cold plate, I understood it wasn't chopped fresh, it was ready from before...so, didn't worth the 24$ (or around that amount) we paid for the salad. My husband ordered a pasta dish with truffles and it was tasteful. Dessert was nice too (cinnamon panacota).

Mixed review. My cocktail was delicious-- the harvest something and since it was happy hour I had two (it was quite small) the many components came through and it had such a nice mouth feel.

The arugula Salad was huge and loaded with cheese, olives and toasted almonds- I liked it a lot . My friends chopped salad was soggy. For the price of $7 it was worth it. It was hearty enough to share. The bread was fresh and delicious as was bean dip.

My friend had the vegetable pasta and liked it but thought the pasta was 1 minute overdone. I had the scallops with cauliflower and they were cooked good inside but greasy on outside. The cauliflower and sauce were good but overall it felt heavy. We shared the meatball appetizer but we're too full to finish it- it was huge. The meatball was good but we did not like the sauce-- possibly too tomato pasty. Reminded us of old style Italian restaurant.

Unfortunately the food did not live up to expectations . Service was excellent. The restaurant has huge front window that was open to outside and outdoor dining but our seat inside near bar was quiet enough we could have a conversation. I could not help but compare it to the last Italian restaurant I dined at that was lighter and fresher.

My boyfriend and I went to Sienna for my birthday. We made an 8 PM reservation and decided to sit outside on their sidewalk upon arrival. The host sat us away from the restaurant, which we enjoyed - just enough privacy for us and it was a very beautiful night in October. Our drinks were fantastic, but the food was mediocre. The menu online was the reason I had chosen to go to Sienna, but it was not updated. The menu we had was not as appealing to me so this was a little disappointing. The entrees we settled on were okay, but for these prices a little more authenticity would have helped. Our server was very nice and friendly. And when she wasn't available at times, other servers had approached us, so we never felt like we were forgotten. Everything was perfectly timed, but towards the end of our meal, I felt as though they were rushing us to leave. We understood that it was a little later in the night, but they were still open and had other guests to attend to. I will be back for happy hour because that looked interesting, but most likely won't stay for dinner.
