I have eaten at Siena too many times to count - it is, hands down, my favorite restuarant in the Buffalo area. You must order the carciofi and the shrimp scampi! The antipasto plate is incredible as well. The chicken cutlets (I order them Milanese style) are so simple, yet I cannot recreate them at home. Their steaks are always... More

Atmosphere was very nice, and food was good but not great. The stuffed peppers are pretty much a must to order. Some little things just bugged me, like the container for the olive oil being very messy. Had to step out to wash hands even to not feel greasy through the meal. I got the pork chop special, but is... More

After a bad experience at Tabree we went to Siena's. EVERYTHING was fantastic. We have been there many times and it remains one of our favorites . They don't take reservations but some restaurants that do don't honor them anyhow. (Hint-Tabr--)

Good things come from Siena’s wood burning oven, thin crusted pizzas with a variety of unique toppings, roasted chicken, rack of lamb, and fresh Florida red snapper. From the kitchen comes a variety of appetizers, entrées and pastas influenced by the Northern Italian city from which the name is taken. When it comes to comfort food on a cold winter... More

Love the daily specials, especially 1/2 price wine and eggplant parm on Sundays. Everything on the menu is of high quality and expertly prepared. We often get the pizza as take out. I highly recommend you stop and give it a try.

First time at the Siena Restaurant. Very nice restaurant with a "supper club" atmosphere and somewhat intimate (convenient parking at a premium). Christmas music playing in the background added to the good feeling of a nice dinner. The calamari appetizer was good, I was a little disappointed with my caesar salad. Two of us had the Sea Bass special, and... More

We've been dining here for many years, but have moved away for the last ten. Every time we are home for a visit, this is a must and food is always fabulous. We've dined in many top restaurants, all over and this is the finest. The bar is terrific, employees friendly and knowledgeable If you live in Buffalo or visiting,... More

We found this restaurant after going to the theatre and felt like an Italian meal. We were not disappointed. Extensive wine list, imaginative menu with good specials. Crab cake appetizer and calamari were very good. We opted for four different pizzas and shared. Very nice. However the meal was a little more than we expected to spend. One thing bugged... More

I had dinner with business associates recently. We were seated and waited on promptly. For a Monday night they had a good number of daily specials. We started off with dinner salads. Most of us had the Chopped Salad which was greens, pears, dried cherries, gorgonzola, granola and maple/balsamic dressing. I have never had granola on a salad and I... More
