Food was excellent as was the service. Made reservations and arrived early but they were still able to seat us. Smaller restaurant, kind of loud in front because you are near the bar. For a quieter dining experience try to reserve tables in the back of the restaurant as it is away from the bar. Parking is limited but they... More

We had dinner at Siena tonight and had a very good meal which was made special by the server, Michelle. We shared the fried calamari with peppers and basalmic vinegar which was tasty with a nice balance of hot and sweet. My boyfriend had the Bronzino which he enjoyed. I had the chippino which was delicious and much more than... More

Great Italian food. Have tried many things on the menu and few disappoint. Appetizers you have to try calamari balsamico and the meatball. I'll be going back soon!

We visit Providence RI several times a year and Siena Restaurant is always at the top of our list of "Go To" places. We have just dined again at this wonderful gem on Federal Hill. Our food was excellent, service prompt, friendly and professional and the parking attendants could not have been more professional if they had tried. We will... More

I have visited Siena's on multiple occasions and it has always been great. The food is always spectacular and the service is typically good to better than good. The bar area can be accommodating but sometimes a little crowded. The best part is always the food. I have enjoyed most of the veal dishes. Favorite Italian restaurant.

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

Walking on Federal Hill on a Thursday night in a small city like Providence, most places were dead however Siena was packed like a Saturday night in a big... More

Went here on a friend's recommendation. The restaurant is in Federal Hill Little Italy just off the highway on the main street. 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
