Siro Urban Italian at Marriott World Center Ratings and Reviews
From the crafted cocktails through dinner, everything exceeded out expectations. The Starters, Salads, and entrees were very tasteful and had wonderful flavors. Our server Derek was very friendly and professional. Each recommendation he made for cocktails, wine, or any menu item was spot on. He also kept us laughing and entertained while keeping our orders and other tables of his on schedule. We will request him next time we go.
The restaurant ambiance is very nice. Centrally located close to the main lobby, so you are close to things but yet the restaurant has a quietness about it. The food was amazing and the selections were varied. The service was attentive and the food presentation was timely. The Chicken Marsala was amazing! They also prepared a pasta dish for my daughter that was amazing! We live locally and will certainly return.
Great new age Italian cuisine! You have to order the foccacia bread to start! The only thing lacking was the service and it wasn't our server's fault. She clearly had too many tables and not enough help. I would have given 5 stars if it didn't take us almost an hour to get our meal! We would try it again, next time we are in town. Meatballs were delicious too! And I got the pork ragu which was really good.
Convenience was key as we were at the Marriott with a party comprised of small children. Gnocchi appetizer was very good. Pizza had good flavor but odd texture with overly floured bottom. Pork cannoli was highly recommended but did not live up to expectations. Very good Caesar salad with shaved Parmesan. Convenient but would rather not go back/or recommend. Wine list prices were also overpriced. Normal markup usually 3x retail, this wine list appeared closer to 4x retail.
Having reservations was a must.
Food was excellent and served hot, but was not timed well as we were served at different times. We asked for parmesan cheese for our pasta and by the time it arrived, our food was cold. We kept thinking "just one more minute", but even cold it was still good. We had to get up and retrieve the water bottles from another table because ours was not refilled or replaced.
Love the way it was decorated.
Greeted with a craft cocktail menu, and a bar tender freshly squeezing juices tipped me off that this was going to be way better than the Lobby Bar. Totally right.
The downsides - very loud (largely due to being located in a large open lobby), and not being open for lunch (I would have eat there MORE!) did not deter me from being there as much as possible.
This is a hotel restaurant - and a hotel that is pretty isolated. But it did a great job of bringing in good ingredients and preparing them in a far above average way. Based on what I know about working within a large hotel system - this place is a miracle.
So if you are at a convention, or staying here, just because - you'll find it is a screaming deal in both food quality, flavor and portion size compared to anything else in the hotel.
And who knows... maybe they'll be open for lunch soon.
When I walked into the restaurant with my 4 clients, it looked and felt like I was walking into a Texas Roadhouse restaurant and not an upscale Italian restaurant. In fact the menu was the least Italian menu that I had ever seen.
Our server, Matt, was knowledgeable and helped us choose wisely from the menu! The food preparation and presentation (I had the duck breast) was fair to good, but at those prices, I would have expected better.
The 2 bottles of Cabernet wine that we had were 2.5 times retail prices and I am thinking that the wine should have at least been decanted at the table to at least make it feel like a special event versus what felt no better than popping the top off a beer bottle.
I assume that like many tourist destinations, and I have lived in some, the assumption is that guests are one-and-done and won't be seen or heard from again. Not the case with me however, I travel to Orlando on business frequently and will be back at this same hotel that houses the restaurant and I will not be taking clients to Siro Urban Italian again.
Food is good, service is just OK and value is low. Overpriced menu, small portions and stingy. I had wine, two appetizers and a salad. The salad was delivered, but I wasn't given any bread. I asked for bread and was told it would be $4.00. Very surprised to see an Italian restaurant that doesn't offer bread as part of the meal. In fact, in my 30-plus years of traveling, I've never heard of it. If you're stuck in the hotel, it's OK to eat here, but if you are able, go elsewhere.
Ambiance, food, drink, service, people friendliness and attentiveness was exceptional! In particular we loved meeting and engaging with Alyssa, one of your team members working at the bar. She went out of her way to share her passion for the business, especially as a Marriott team member. Additionally her knowledge of the menu offerings...aka, food, ingredients, drink selections, as well as making wonderful suggestions, was truly a joy!
We look forward to our next visit.

We used to eat at this place 4 times in the past. It was called "Tuscany" and it was wonderful. Here comes the "new and improve" restaurant "Siro Urban Italian".
Way overprice and the portion is a joke. We ordered from the "adult menu" for my 8 year-old-70-lbs girl, and she was still hungry. Her dish was a $30.00 Pasta with shrimp - Full portion.
On top of that they did not get her order right. She wanted Alfredo sauce, but came Tomato sauce. But after more than 30 minute wait for her food to arrive in the first place, we just didn't have the patient to send it back and wait another 30 minute for them to get it right.
We then, stupidly enough, proceeded to order dessert for her to hopefully fill her stomach up. Here came the Creme Brule, after another 20 minutes, and we kid you not it was 3 small spoon portion.
At this day and age and especially in the U.S. where food is abundant, and people try to save a few bucks by cutting corner this way? Never be back here again. Please be forewarn
The food was outstanding as was the service. Although it is in the middle of a hotel this restaurant is not your typical hotel dining. The barrel aged old fashion was amazing along with the goat cheese appetizer and pizza!
Be advised this location is in a hotel and parking is $20 if you are there one hour or 10 hours. Other might be aware but for those traveling to the area and looking for a place to eat be warned.
The food and service were fine but if we had known it was in the lobby, we probably would have eaten elsewhere. We had a pork loin wrapped in porchetta with polenta and pasta with beef and kale. Both dishes were very good. The wine list was decent. The service was above average. The zeppole, for dessert were very good. The noise from the bar and the open area lobby was a distraction.
Stayed at hotel for kids winter break. Setup our Valentines dinner at Siro. Had an incredible Valentine's Dayu four course meal with wine pairings. Each dish was fresh, lite and phenomenal. Wine pairings were perfect, I typically don't enjoy a port with dinner but the somalier delivered. Went back to Siro for our last night and had another great experience. Muscle appetizer is traditional, herbed up with thyme and nice grilled fresh bread. The ox tail pasta dish appears heavy when you read it on the menu but it's clean fresh and perfectly balanced 10 out of 10. We live in Atlanta and are lucky to eat at great restaurants. Siro's food competes with them all!
Reservation for two for a 5pm seating. Restaurant promptly opened at 5pm and we were seated nearly simultaneously. Wine list is not hugely impressive and the selection of other cocktails and beers is mediocre, following roughly the same options available at the other restaurants within the Hotel/Resort. Service was also mediocre. To steal a term from the millennial generation, "meh" about sums it up. Waitress was polite but absent. Wine and beer ordered, took quite some time for both to be served. Given there were only four tables seated when we ordered, the typical "blame it on the bartender" would not suffice in this circumstance. My wife ordered the burger for dinner, as it was touted as award winning, farm to table and she wasn't really impressed with the other offerings. Her burger was quite nice looking, although smothered with onions. Fresh pickles garnished. Also ordered fries with the burger, a la carte. The fries were fresh cut, which was a huge change from the usual Orlando chain-restaurants. The "truffle aioli" was mostly mayonnaise with no real flavor, and the "house made ketchup" was not very appealing. I ordered the Frutti de Mare, full portion. Having ordered this dish at many fine Italian restaurants, was expecting a bustling offering of shellfish & shrimp with pasta. What I got was a half of a bowl of brothy (yet borderline tasty...was missing something) sauce with mussles, clams and a prawn, and a light and flaky fish filet diced up on some orzo pasta. A wide noodle would have likely been a better selection and pairing for this dish. The mussles were undercooked, the prawn was beautifully posed, but alas, cold. The clams were nice, but small. Thank goodness I ordered the full portion, as a half portion would have been more of an appetizer-sized entrée. The noise from the hotel lobby was quite voluminous, but a casual conversation was still possible. Food was ok, but not really worth the price. Probably won't return.
Excellent food but even more notable are the cocktails and the craftsmanship of the bartenders. We had two great female bartenders and the classic cocktails they prepared were outstanding. The hotel and restaurants were very busy with a major convention going on but the bar and restaurant staff served us well.
Siro Urban Kitchen was the perfect choice for our group dinner at a recent convention. One of several restaurants on the property, the food was creative and delicious. Most notable was the calivetto pasta preparation with sweet corn. I appreciated the opportunity to get a half portion...and liked it so much it became part of a 2nd dinner there later in the week. There are a number of choices for appetizers to share, pizza, and for those who covent their own food, tasty lovely looking entrees. Fish is also on the menu. Salads were pretty to look at and tasty. We enjoyed our dinner at the bar one night too; friendly fun staff banter. Be aware that portions are not huge so if you are sharing, you may need to beef up your orders. Overall, a positive experience.
I hate to say it but eating here was the worst part of our entire vacation. It's too bad too because after looking at the menu I was so excited to try it out. First off the atmosphere seemed romantic until we tried to read the menu and realized we couldn't see anything because it was so dark! The hostess seated us and then took our order which was strange...because she was the hostess...not our waiter. I have to mention also that everyone was in JEANS. Now I get it, I am the first to want to be comfortable and casual at work but going out to dinner in a seemingly nice Italian restaurant in a marriot hotel I expected a little more of a clean look from the staff. So my boyfriend and I order, and she came over twice to make sure she got our order correct. Our waiter came over maybe ten minutes after we put in our order to apologize about the delay and to ensure us everything was put in (food and drinks). I'm not sure what the delay was about because in the large restaurant it was my boyfriend and I, a family of four, and another couple. Drinks come, they were delicious. Then some appetizers come out. Meatballs, yum, except they were extremely small. I had a Cesar salad and they chopped up hard boiled egg and threw it in, yuck! Egg was no where to be found in the description of the salad. No big deal I pick it out but mention it to the waiter. His excuse was that some restaurants put egg in their dressing and they choose to just put it right in the salad. Ok...but tell me so I can ask for it without egg. After about a bite of my salad and one miniscule meatball my boyfriends pasta dinner comes out. Waiter doesn't think anything of it and tells us to enjoy. We finish our appetizers and I just tell my boyfriend to start eating. I tell the waiter he forgot my food and he blamed it on the hostess for not telling him. My dessert comes out first, a cold tart and I finish then my boyfriends zepolies come out. We ate our entire meal separately. Such a dissapointment.
