We Californians don't come across "Little Italy's" too often so what a surprise to discover Federal Hill and especially, Siena's restaurant. So glad we had a res because it was totally booked inside and out while others on the street stood empty. Nick, our waiter, was terrific ( could tell he was experienced) and the food was wonderful -finally a... More

My wife and I went on a Sunday night without a reservation and were seated in about 10 minutes. The waitress and staff were pleasant and accommodating as well as quick with anything we needed. The restaurant was... More

Amazing restaurant. Came here with my fiancé on romantic weekend. They beautifully accommodated all our of party's dietary needs. The dinning room was upscale. The waitress was very knowledgable and efficient. The entrees were tasty and plated with care. The complimentary valet was an appreciated touch.

Having read reviews about this restaurant as a romantic spot for couples, as we celebrated our 5th anniversary and during our vacation in Providence we tried it. Food and Service were great. Also the featured red wine was delicious. We had the penne pasta with vodka sauce as well as the chicken diablo, both delicious. The desserts looked great and... More

Not having made reservations on a full lighting Water Fire evening in Providence, we selected Siena based on menu and price after reviewing many restaurants in the Federal Hill District (a short walk to Water Place Park and downtown). Most restaurants close for several hours in the afternoon on weekend days, re-opening for dinner at 5:00 PM. Siena was open... More

Every once in a while I feel that the TripAdvisor ratings get out of wack, possibly because of some promotional campaign run by the business being reviewed. Well, that was my experience here. To be fair, the ambiance was nice and my waitress was wonderful and friendly. But the hostess was not very welcoming to a party of 1 and... More

Visited RI with some friends and decided to eat at Siena due to the proximity to our hotel. We were all glad we did! The food was great, and our waitress, Erin, I believe, was terrific.

Made reservations for 6pm on Saturday night so the three of us could attend the Water Fires. The restaurant was already very busy. We were seated at a window seat and promptly greeted by our server. She was pleasant and sweet the whole night. The manager was clearly circulating the restaurNt the whole evening. We ordered the jumbo meatball which... More
