This is one of our favorite restaurants in Norfolk. Specializes in Northern Italian food. Homemade pasta and sauces are good, but the veal dishes like veal saltimbocca are exceptional. The wine list is complete with choices at all price points. the wait staff is knowledgeable and can discuss both the menu and the wine. There is limited parking in back.... More

All of our food was terrific. Authentic Italian with an extensive wine list. We'll definitely be back!

We shared a calamari appetizer and a caesar salad, and both were excellent. My husband had the pasta with smoked salmon and mushroom (I can't remember what it was called, but it was very tasty) and I had the fettucine with the angus beef, which was really good as well. Oscar was a fine waiter.

Walked over from hotel and had a great meal. I had the 4-course meal for $30 which I thought was a good value for the quality of the meal. The veal cutlet and gnocchi were my favorites. Will definitely come back.

Get the Calamari in red sauce as a appetizer, and cannot go wrong with anything on the main menu. Fabio is great to ask about wine.

This is a true Italian rest. Chef, Flavio, is Roman. Fine quality and delicious sauces. Homemade pastas. Nice ambience. Reasonable prices. Only disappointment: in my last visit, gnocchis were not rolled, as they were in previous visits.

This was our first visit to Sirena's and I only wish that I had known about this fine restaurant sooner. Having grown up eating home-prepared southern Italian cooking and having lived In northern Italy several years I am somewhat of an Italian restaurant snob. I know the real thing and this is it. I had saltimbocca alla romana (veal medallions... More

My wife and I have dined here many times in the last several years. The food and service are always excellent. We went there last evening, a Saturday night, before seeing a show at Chrysler Hall. Fabio, the owner, has prepared a new menu that greatly restricts the variety of items, both appetizers and entrees, that are available "pre show".... More

Thank you very much! We are glad that you have been enjoying our establishment and we definitely value your patronage. We would like to take this oppurtunity to explain that after almost ten years we decided that in order to make the service more functional we had to limit the choices of our extensive menu during a show rush.

We went there last night before West Side Story. When we arrived we were told there was a 'limited' menu because of show night. They took all meat, veal, chicken off the menu. So our choices left were limited and mostly pasta dishes. We ordered. Both meals were mediocre at best. My clams with pasta was really terrible. Clams dried... More
