I went to school at Bryant University in Smithfield, RI just 20 minutes away from the restaurant. Any time my parents or girlfriend would visit we would without a doubt make a reservation here. Some of the best Italian food that I have ever eaten in the states and in my opinion rivals a fair amount of the restaurants in... More

We went to Siena for dinner last night and were thrilled. It is Providence Restaurant Week so they had a special menu, three courses for a low fixed price. We enjoyed our first course, two Caesar salads and one Mussels in Saffron Cream along with a wonderful wine suggested by our server, Gabby. Dinner was equally enjoyed a pasta, a... More

Very nice atmosphere and excellent food. It's not the cheapest restaurant in Federal Hill, but definitely worth it.

This is a nice Italian restaurant with more than the typical pasta and sauce recipes. Menu has a nice variety of selections. There was a fixed price selection of items that included appetizer, main course and dessert. A good bargain and included some of their nice menu items. They have a nice list if wines too.

First off, call to make Reservations in advance on the weekends; it's busy. The Food is Authentic, Fresh and is delivered in sizable portions. The Eggplant Appetizer (Involtini di Melanzane) is the best Eggplant Appetizer I've ever had. The House Salad is large and extremely tasty (for something called a house salad!). Yet, there is nothing "House Salad" about it.... More

Nick, our server, made an amazing and professional first impression with his description of the wine and entree specials. We started with a poorly described jumbo lump crab cake, it was lump but by no means lump and the crostini with mushrooms and taleggio cheese which were only okay. The entrees saved the day! The shrimp with thyme and risotto... More

I went here on a date. We ordered an eggplant appetizer that was delicious! Followed by an even more delicious entrée. They also have a very good wine selection and dining outside during the warm summer days.
