“WOW......and WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Sometimes you just get lucky...the high street is full of little eateries and restaurants ...but we decided to sit outside this little delicatessen and watch the world go by right near the entrance to the church.
The owner told us she had just got a Bakewell tart out of the oven ..so I decided to have a big slice of that with my coffee....my wife had a slice of Pear and Almond tart with cream.it turns out the lady who owns Siena's cooks all the cakes and much more herself.... My Bakewell was .the best I have ever had...............my wife loved her tart.Both were just superb
Its not been a great food week....perhaps I expect this .but now and again you strike gold..this was one of those times.
Go and eat their wonderful food.....Ok its just coffee and a bun but it was close to perfection.!

Super Deli. Excellent freshly prepared Italian deli food. Excellent coffee. Highly recommended for snacks and coffee and cake. The cakes are home made!

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

I have only just started visiting Sienna's as whenever I went past there before it was always full and it turns out to be no surprise that it is so popular. Haven't actually eaten there, as have only stopped for drinks before but the welcome is always warm and friendly and seems genuine, and the comments from other customers who have taken meals there is unfailingly positive. Although usually busy, Sarah the owner is always pleased to chat to customers about her products and is clearly knowledgeable about them and justifiably proud of the quality.
