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.

Taking an overnighter with my girlfriend to watch waterfire, I told a buddy that we were going to Federal hill to eat. Without missing a beat he told me to go to Sienas. I booked a table for 2 for saturday night. Reading reviews, it appeared to be a hit or miss depending on the day. I can assure you,... More

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

There are quite a few very good Italian (and other) restaurants on Federal Hill in Providence. Siena is certainly one of them. Although they were quite busy, the service was certainly acceptable, and the food was excellent

Located in the Federal Hill area which is a street lined with many restaurants, mostly Italian. We had drinks and appetizers at a different Resturant but had made reservations at Siena on a locals recommendation. We were not disappointed. Our waitress, Erin had excellent recommendations and besides being attentive had a delightful personality. I had the crab cakes as a... More

Great dinner, typical italian food. Not for those looking for a "deal" but great drinks, free valet, and atmosphere worth the trip. Oddly I have never waited more than 10 minutes, but I also eat late 7 or 8 ish. All in all great experience...business/friends/couples meal.

The service, the food, the atmosphere are all superb. One of the best meals my wife and I have ever had in an upscale Italian restaurant. The server, Karen, was especially attentive to us and both the maître d and the managers were active and involved. We couldn't have been happier. What great food and service. We are bowled over....

I went for the first time last night with my husband and we were seated in a cozy table near the window. We had the grilled pizza: the crust was thin and crispy and the sauce was spicy and had big chunks of tomatoes in it - it was REALLY good. I had the Penne alla Vodka and I seriously... More

My husband and I have eaten at Siena on two occasions in the last few months. The first time in May, everything was quite good and the veal dish with mushrooms he ordered was exceptional . We also had an extremely good appetizer, that was on special that night, of shrimp wrapped in prosciutto . We went back last week... More
