I think I was a little bit spoiled by an even better Italian meal in the neighborhood about a week before I ate here, but this was still a very good meal. The service is on point. The price is maybe not the best value-for-quality you could find, but the prices aren't insane and the food is really good. Excellent... More

Great service at the bar and happy to serve you dinner also . We are never disappointed with the food but it's the people that work there that keep us coming back. The food at many places on the hill is great. It's the associates in the restaurants that keep us coming back. See you soon at the Siena.

All around, a very nice experience. Excellent place for dinner for two. Very good food, not over the top expensive. Best part of our trip was the service, our waitress Karen was very personable, helpful with selections and attentive. Very comfortable, adequate room between tables and chairs, very nice decor. Food quality and preparation very good, think you will be... More

First, get the meatball appetizer. It is the size of a softball so one should suffice for 2-3 adults. It was the best meatball I've ever had, bar none. Good prices of food, well trained wait staff (especially for 9 people). Pollo da Diavolo was different than expected (was thinking something more like shrimp fra diavolo with a wine sauce),... More

In the mood for Italian- so decided to explore the Federal Hill area. We got there early enough to get an outside seat at Siena. Perfect for us since we did not have reservations; had never been to this area before and really got a first hand view of the neighborhood culture. There were so many menu options we would... More

The Smithfield location had long been one of our favorite dinning venues since the restaurant opened! Good & friendly service coupled with good quality & reasonably priced food. When making reservations, if you advise them that you are celebrating a special night, birthday or anniversary, they will ensure that it is remembered by either a glass of champagne or a... More

Went to this restaurant on my birthday, as I had wanted to come here for a long time. We had one of the tasting boards and really enjoyed the mix of Italian cheese and meat - and olives. It was fresh and delicious. I ordered the butterflied shrimp and although I don't normally order shrimp, this dish was so good,... More

I have dined at Siena several times. It is a good reliable choice. Italian dining at its best. Two locations in Rhode Island. East Greenwich near Benny's on Post Road and Smithfield across from Apple Valley Mall.

Not sure what the deal is with restaurants named Siena. I think this is the 2nd one in a month. This one in Providence. Sum it up easy. This place has tons of accolades hanging on the wall for you to see as you go in. Siena is 1 of those places that we make it the way we want... More

Siena is a very good Italian restaurant in the Federal Hill area of downtown Providence. Classic Italian cuisine, excellent service, modest wine list. All was good but the Tiramisu was not the best I have had. Overall very good and would eat there again.
