I'll start from the end- 109$ (before service) for 3 people: 2 entrees, 2 glasses of wine, 1 lemonade, 3 main dishes, 1 great desert, and of course bread, butter and olives before you start. We made a last minute reservation on a week night. Many many of the resturants on the street were half or completely empty, but Siena... More

The meatball appetizer was awesome. It is $11 and it is about slightly larger than a baseball with ricotta on top and in a delicious tomato sauce. We sat at the Bar and service was OK, but they could really use a second bar tender for the one bartender is slightly overwhelmed with what she has to do all by... More

We celebrated my husband's birthday here. The service, atmosphere and food was wonderful!! The presentation, plating, of the entrees, were perfect. The staff sang and the plate had "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate sauce on it!! Later in the evening, we went back and sat outside, listening to a great singer!! We really enjoyed the many facets of this restaurant.

Really enjoyed the food here. We had the veal saltimboca and diablo (sp) chicken. Both were among the best we've had anywhere. We enjoyed the caesar salad and the desserts were to die for!!! The chocolate bread pudding was the very best I've had!! What brought the review down was the atmosphere. We sat in the bar area and couldn't... More

I had dinner with a couple of young friends at Siena. I have been to several good restaurants in Providence but had not been to Siena. I am pleased to say Siena is right up there with the best. The waiter was attentive and helpful. The food was excellent and the prices are reasonable for a high quality restaurant. Two... More

Siena is one of the restaurants on our Saturday night rotation. We called the day before for a reservation, which is advisable if you desire a specific time or area. We prefer the front room, preferably near a window. However, we almost always eat at the bar. Siena gets very crowded, so expect to wait. I ordered Frutti De Mari,... More

Our evening was more than expected. Our party of six was greatly impressed by our server who explained dishes, made suggestions and assisted in wine pairing. We will definitely be returning!

The service was very good and the restaurant was nice, although the décor is a bit over done. The food is good but it doesn't taste like authentic Italian. The calamari was flavorless and a little chewy. I had the lobster mac and cheese and the sauce was a little heavy and there wasn't much lobster (surprise, surprise). My daughter... More
