Had a lunch here on a rainy Saturday. Excellent cappucino and a meat ball panini. Son is vegetarian so had awesome minestrone. Got almond cake to take away as well as some risotto for dinner. All superb and a very friendly owner who makes all the food. Recommended.

On Thursday we popped into Siena's for breakfast. As usual Sarah was very hospitable. Our breakfast was excellent and the coffee was first rate.

This by far a great place to have coffee and a cake. With excellent sandwiches, cakes, cheeses, hams and pestos to choose from plus proper pasta, bechamel sauce, wine, cooked meals to takeway and re-heat. All in all just superb! A little Italy!!

small and cosy, love getting a takeaway coffee from Siena's. The home cooked food looks amazing as do the Italian meets and her cheeses. Only 2 tables to sit on which actually adds to the charm if you're going to sit and people watch it's a great location too. The artichokes are also amazing!

So special to find such a gem where the owner clearly takes great pride in selling top class dishes to the public! We popped in yesterday not knowing what to expect and having eaten our first dishes simply had to return after a couple of hours to get some more different dishes. Top class food and service!

We were visiting the Christchurch Food Fair and were looking for somewhere to sit and have a drink. This is a small deli with a couple of tables inside and a couple outside. We each had a cake and a coffee. The cakes were excellent and came with a small jug of cream. I like to have cream with a... More
