Siena was recommended as one of the better restaurants in Federal Hill (aka Little Italy). There were other establishments suggested, but Siena was selected for food and service excellence for solo travelers. My entire experience was AMAZING!! I went on Thursday night (save yourself the hassle, use valet parking). The restaurant and bar were packed (unlike other nearby establishments). I... More

Delicious food! Lobster risotto was fantastic! Just request a table in the back as the tables near the bar are noisy.

I had the shrimp with risotto. The shrimp were fresh and good size and the risotto decadent. My husband had the rigatoni with sausage.... More

At the heart of the Federal Hill in Providence RI, you have a very typical Italian restaurant with excellent food, service and ambiance.

This was our first time at Siena. We were celebrating two birthdays and wanted the best possible experience so we choose Siena based on reputation. We were absolutely not disappointed. The ambiance is casual fine dining, with a warm atmosphere and lots of people really enjoying themselves. They have complimentary valet parking which is a must on Atwells Ave in... More

Never a bad experience at Siena! They have a wonderful cocktail menu with interesting combinations to try something new each time you visit. Everything on their dinner menu is delicious from their classic Italian dishes to the more Americanized options. Great place for a night out with family and friends. Very warm & welcoming atmosphere, friendly service staff and valet,... More

At here with some coworkers one night for dinner. Had a fantastic honey glazed chicken with an amazing Parmesan risotto. This place has won numerous awards for best restaurant in Providence and it's easy to see why. The one negative I would say is that the wine list by the glass is very small, maybe 4 reds and 4 whites,... More

Had dinner with one other couple - totally a fantastic dinner! I cannot say it enough - get the meatball for a starter - ground sirloin, veal, and topped with ricotta cheese! One can be shared - but good luck sharing it! The special that night was an 8oz filet butterfly cut stuffed with eggplant, cheese, and bacon - every... More
