Very nice restaurant with a good wine list and great menu. The service was first rate. Siena is definitely as good as advertised.

“Nice experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

First time in this restaurant. A Wednesday night and they were full. The on street parking was a challenge but found a spot after circling the block several times. Valet parking available. Not one of the larger restaurants so level of noise higher than I liked but ok. Service was great. Our food arrived when expected. The pink vodka sauce with pasta was great. Everyone enjoyed meals. Although very busy no one hurried us. We were left to enjoy our food and conversation! Will definitely return.

“Better than average!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

My favorite was the Funghi Portabello ai Ferri appetizer. I got the pink vodka sauce chicken pasta, which was good, but the pizza with that same pink vodka sauce was amazing. The only issue was the service--they were very busy for a Monday night, but we seemed to wait an extraordinary amount of time to order our drinks and then to have our meals boxed up. The good food made up for it though.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Very nice place to eat. We had the signature bolognese w/egg noodles & veal saltibocca. Both were excellent. Very reasonable. We would definately return again

“Kind of disappointing...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Highly recommended by the concierge, but proved to be rather disappointing. Crowded, but a nice location. Gnocchi was completely inedible, but the pasta was nice. Not worth a wait or the price.
