We love Siena, and we frequent 800 Maple but on this occasion (New Year's Eve) we found ourselves with our party being cancelled due to illness. We tried 800 but it was booked solid. Siena was able to sneak us in before the big dinner rush. The service was great, the fixed menu was a bit of a surprise because... More

The food is great but then again your paying top dollar, so it should be. The place is a little too busy for my taste. I always feel cramped and they don't take reservations. This restaurant is affiliated with 800 Maple which is much better in my opinion.

I have now brought 8 different food and wine enthusiasts born and raised in Italy to Siena. Each and everyone of them has agreed that Siena is one of the best Italian restaurants they have eaten at in the United States. All of them insist on returning here for the consistently excellent dishes. I look forward to the specials as... More

I loved the large wheel of parmesan and the authentic parma ham in a special slicer that looks like it was made just for parma ham. We had fish and it was very fresh, nicely prepared but greasy. Portions were reasonable and the service was attentive. Enjoyed the bread and the delicious coffee. The atmosphere is nice and not too... More

I didn't find the food to be particularly great and the meal was overpriced. My scallops appetizer was tasty, but it was 15.00 for two tiny scallops. I also had a farro salad and was really disappointed with it. I thought it would be farro mixed with greens and vegetables when in reality it was farro tossed with a few... More

The food and service are excellent at Siena. Next we are coming for dinner for a different experience. I had the tuna app and the shrimp wrap which were both amazing. I took my mom and she enjoyed the margarita pizza which came in full or half size with a fresh salad. This is a spot to visit

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--)
