We came here on the recommendation of a friend who lives in the area, and were very glad that we did. They have what they call a "from-scrath" kitchen, so they make everything fresh the same day. The bread is so good,
My appetizer meatball was huge and phenomenal.
The best seafood fra diavolo. My girlfriend got the lamb. She love it.
Our server was friendly, funny and offered great advice on other attractions in the area. If we're ever in the area again this restaurant is a must!

I enjoy visiting Federal Hill and my wife and I have been to a few restaurants. I have to say that this is the best so far. Food was delicious and all in my party of 4 were please with their meals. If I have a criticism, it's that the bar side of the restaurant is a bit loud. The back end of the restaurant seemed a bit quieter but we weren't there so I can't guaranty this. When I say loud, I mean loud enough that I couldn't hear the waitress read the specials. The food was good enough though that I'd stuff cotton in my ears and go back.

You can stay away from Providence for five, six months - even a year - and when you return count on Siena serving food just as great as the last time you were there. Always welcoming (but be sure to make reservations for this popular, and affordable, restaurant), Siena's fare delivers variety dictated by the season and a richness born of its commitment to pasta, meats, cheese and vegetables. The ambiance is warm, though a bit tight but with a wide street view of the bustling Federal Hill crowd. Tuscan-ochre saturated walls add to the beauty of the room, as do white tablecloths and tiny candles. The waitstaff is efficient and no-nonsense, always aiming to please.

We visited the Siena restaurant with friends. We were seated quickly at a good table near the back, where we could hear ourselves speak without needing to shout.

The service was excellent as was the food. We managed to try two different wines and a variety of dishes, all of which were excellent.

I would like to go back sometime when I return to Providence.

Good job!

Food was terrific. We ordered the sea bass which melted in your mouth. The Veal Chop was fantastic and the antipasto was a perfect start to the meal. Reasonably priced wine list as well.
