About
Bar Siena, the sister venue to River North's Siena Tavern, offers a slightly smaller menu inspired by expansive Italian street food such as antipasti, pasta, and pizza. Overseen by partner and Top Chef, Fabio Viviani, the menu focuses on Cicchetti style cuisine, with dishes served as they're prepared and are perfect for sharing. The two-story restaurant, spanning 8,000-square-feet, is located in the heart of restaurant row in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood. Upon entering, there is a bustling bar and on the second floor, a vibrant dining room, both connected by an arresting illuminated sculpture inspired by Siena Tavern's olive tree icon. Bar Siena is the perfect location for weekday lunch,

Very casual but elegant at the same time. Tapas Italian food style and very good wine choice. Staff is very friendly and helpful atmosphere is vibrant even on a weekday night.

Absolutely love this place. Great pasta, amazing dessert, and cool sides. The ambiance is really nice for dates or a big group of friends. I recommend requesting a table upstairs, and definitely try a bombo!
