Was looking for a place to enjoy our anniversary and bring our dog. Called 2 times leaving a message asking if they are pet friendly but no return call. Left our pupperz at home, saw a dog outside and asked, never did get a good...reply from the hostess but obviously they do allow dogs on the patio. Made a reservation so when the hostess came I said we have a reservation and she never checked asking if we wanted inside our outside, no need for a reservation obviously. Our server Melanie was absolutely Awesome!!!! Food was very good although prawns a little over cooked but they are sensitive to heat and it's easy to slightly over cook them. Melanie and the food are a definite 5 star!!!!More

We should not have been surprised to find great Italian food so close to San Francisco. Very authentic. I had the veal piccata and my husband had the fish special. Both very good, and the sautéed spinach is the best. Nice atmosphere, not too noisy...but not too quiet. Very eclectic clientele .More

I have never in my life been treated so bad by a restaurant manager and hostess. Choose another restaurant in Benicia for you to have a pleasant experience. There are many other options. NEVER again!

So glad things are opening up and glad we decided to try this restaurant on the water! Beautiful setting and great food and service! We started with the steak carpaccio which was delish. Then I had the veal scallopini and hubby fruitti de mare ....Both were excellent choices. Ended with lavender orange creme brûlée. Excellent! felt so good to be out and close to normal. My only negative was the time to receive our entree other than that was very happy!More

I always enjoy dining in California and Bella Siena did not disappoint. Starters were shared at the table - skirt steak satay, crab cakes and carpaccio - they were complemented by an outstanding Pinot. My satay was so on target I had the Teriyaki Skirt...Steak for my main plate. Open dining room overlooking the water completed the dinner.More

We hadn't been here since November 2019, mostly due to COVID. The food was still excellent, as was the service. Wine list is very good, also. Seating is outside and in the restaurant. Open all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

We loved eating out on the sidewalk and enjoyed watching the people, especially the dog and cat walkers, parade by. The service was great and the food was exceptional. Mother Nature provided beautiful weather.

Benicia was long overdue for a more upscale restaurant, but Bella really delivers. Food is great as well as the service (shout out to Hannah!). We're here usually once a week and while we really should get back to branching out a bit more, why...bother when Bella is just so consistent? In the best way possible. All the pastas are great, and the skirt steak is another fave. They usually have a great fish special that changes. And the evening sunset there is 👌More

I came here for my birthday dinner, a first time customer. The space is nice and spacious, with a beautiful design and seating. Service is good; friendly staff and reasonable prices. With the exception of their Caesar Salad, the food is wonderful. I recommend the...gnocchi for you pasta lovers. If you are there on a nice day and they have available outdoor seating or interior near the window, grab it! It’s so beautiful. I already went back for a cocktail and sat outdoors, service was great there also. Would recommend this place.More
