I enjoyed a meal here in April 2015, perhaps the third or fourth time I've been here. This time, the atmosphere felt less metallic and tinny, and more like a refined bistro. Perhaps it was the tablecloths, but anyway, my friend and I enjoyed delicious cocktails and ordered wood fired pizza and the Monday special, veal braciole. The service is... More

I'm originally from Buffalo, and was visiting a friend and two grandchildren. Time got away from us (we skipped lunch), and when we left her daughter's house at 5, decided to stop and eat. We both had the salad special, artichoke, arugula, house made croutons and mozzarella, and fennel. The croutons were like French fries, crisp on the outside but... More

I have dined at Siena a few times, whenever I visit my mother-in-law who lives in the Buffalo area. She is 89 and always asks to go to Siena because she loves the appetizers and entrees and it isn't "too noisy". Our family has been to Italy numerous times and the town of Siena is a favorite. This restaurant is... More

Check this place out, great pizzas to go as well. Full bar and a solid menu to cover all bases. It won't disappoint you. Service is superb and you can't miss at Siena. Very close to North Buffalo, Williamsville, UB, etc. Main near Harlem

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

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

A very busy and welcoming restaurant serving the very best of Italian food. Wafer thin Pizza cooked in a wood oven. Pasta, sea food or meat dishes will not disappoint. Ask for the lamb well done though.

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
