Amazing food, amazing service, amazing environment! Honestly, the best Italian food I have ever had! The staff is friendly and professional. The bartenders are friendly but respectful. I have been all over the Northeast, but I will drive out of my way to eat here.

Very good experience! My boyfriend and I were in town for the night and I made reservations for us to have dinner here. I'm glad I made reservations - it was packed on a Sunday night at 8pm! It was restaurant week - we did not partake and ordered off the regular menu. We had the bruschetta appetizer and the... More

I celebrated my birthday here and I loved it! It doesn't matter what you order - I just wish this place was also open for lunch! Unfortunately, when it comes to private parties, they ask for a $500- Deposit!

My boyfriend and I were in RI for a weekend anniversary getaway, and were looking for a nice place to have dinner. I found this restaurant online and we decided to try it. The place is in the Federal Hill section of Providence (foodie heaven! lol) and it just happened to be Providence restaurant week. I did make reservations in... More

Have enjoyed this restaurant many times in the past. This last time it did not live up to it's reputation. Pork Chop; dry and over cooked. Chicken Saltimboca; 3 small tasteless pieces. A triangular piece of Polenta approx. 1" cubed; tasteless. It will be a long time before we go back, if ever. There are too many other excellent Italian... More

As I start this review we are still in the restaurant. We had 730 reservations and waited 20 minutes for our table. That's how the night started. That happens - I know. It was the start of a long night though. At 945 our waitress told us that dessert would be "right out". That meant another 15 minutes in Siena... More

My wife and I had dinner at Siena restaurant while in Providence. It was restaurant week and I went on line to look for restaurants. Siena was one of them. We had probably one of the best meals we've ever had. My wife had the meatball appetizer which was phenomenal. I had a grilled pork chop and my wife had... More

From the appetizers to salad to my cipino and my wife's salmon special. Everything was fantastic. My wife was crazy over the eggplant side. She said she could have had just that.

We really enjoyed Siena but it is a bit loud for a couples dinner. Tables are close like a Tuscan restaurant. Food is fresh and tasty. Mainly traditional menu. Good wine list. The area is lovely to walk around in
