Had a wonderful dinner once. Not really a fan of seafood, but the staff really did their best to make the evenging wonderful. Will come back for sure. Btw, the terrase with the ocean view is really sweet.

Visit Heather the bartender/manager here- she is the best bartender in town and serves a great drink with a consistent great attitude. The meatballs, Caprese salad and Checca pasta are our favorites here and we visit here often. It's mostly locals a super fun place to have a Sunday Funday right on the beach. Note there is not a view... More

We came here for lunch and loved the food however the service was way below average plus the hostess had an attitude. We waited for awhile to get our cocktails and never even got water the while time we were there. Our waiter said the bar was way behind getting the drinks out and we weren't the only ones waiting...

Having been advertised as 'ocean view' you cannot see the ocean from where you sit. Service was very bad with poor etiquette (cleaning up dishes of those finished whilst other were in the middle of satin on the same table) and staff were rather rude. Apart from this the food wasn't too bad, the pastas were all of good quality... More

Siena Italian Ristorante.. On the Balboa Peninsula section of Newport Beach, this restaurant is in the Balboa Inn. On the beach, if you can sit upstairs in the dining and bar area on the bridge between buildings, then you can watch the sunset, look at Catalina Island, and look down on the crowds of tourists. The kitchen and bar are... More

Peaceful eatery away from the crowds. We had patio seating to ourselves, attentive waitstaff and lovely food. I would eat here again. I had pesto brown rice and chicken- it was delicious.

The only good thing about this restaurant was that the food arrived at all. The coke didn't taste like coke and I had to order a new one (which was slightly better..), the tablecloth was dirty and the waiter had a young boy as help and he treated him really bad, which made us really uncomfortable.. Horrible.

This place serves Italian food made competently well for a beach resort -- my pizza was cooked well enough, even if it boasted a fluffy crust that made it more of a flatbread, or something like that. The meatballs were tasty, as was the garlic bread. Eating al fresco in Newport Beach is quite nice, regardless of the cuisine, so... More
