Surprisingly nice Italian restaurant

We had salad, pizza and wine, all of which was very good. We wished the pizza sauce had more flavor and the salad was a bit more adventurous. The service was exceptional and the ambience was very nice.

This restaurant serves wonderful thin crust pizza, especially their Toscana, a wondeful combo of arugula and thinly shaved Parmesan over the thinnest crust. Perfect. Their salads and sandwiches are also excellent. Service can be a bit slow during lunch but is getting better. It's popular so can be busy. And I recently ate there, lost a very tiny earring while...

I love this restaurant! I have always had a wonderful meal. I especially love to sit on the patio ( in the summer months). The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They allow you time to select your choices and aren't pushy. The menu always has excellent specials. I love the pizzas, esp the Toscano w/ arugula and freshly shaved parmigiana... More

I have visited this restaurant a number of times. It is definitely a neighborhood favorite. Food is generally of high quality. The menu is large enough to have something for everyone to enjoy. Their fish is very well prepared, and the brick oven thin crust pizza is excellent. The service is generally good, but at times, when our party includes... More

Went to Siena for a birthday dinner. Started off with the gnocchi app special. Easily one of the most delicious pasta dishes I've had in a long time. The gnocchi were soft little pillows of heaven. Swimming in a lovely bath of light tomato broth with smoky pancetta. For entree the rack of lamb. Domestic sourced allowing for a very... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner out on the patio on a warm August evening. Drinks were tasty and the meals were also very good. I was visiting friends who are regulars at Siena and it's easy to see why - great dining experience!

Another meal out with my American colleagues last night and they brought me to Siena. I have been here before and was really looking forward to it again. We had cocktails at the bar while we waited for some of our party to arrive. The bar tender is very knowledgeable and very swift in making the drinks. For dinner I... More

After dining at Siena in the summer of 2014, we knew that if we returned to Buffalo in 2015, we would certainly eat there again. Be prepared for busy and noisy, but once you have the food, you will know why people flock there. Chef Jen does a superb job with her special dishes. Both the presentation and the flavors... More

Recently dined at Siena, and I say dined not ate. It is a nice experience. Our waiter Sam was perfect, the exact amount of attentiveness, very friendly, and knowledgeable about menu items and their presentations. The flat iron steak was tender and delicious. Items on the antipasti were varied and appealing. This place is tucked back just a bit from... More
