This is an Italian restaurant, but it's about much more than pasta. They often have great choices of meats with vegetables, and other types of meals. Their meat and cheese boards are awesome, and so are their desserts, The portions are more than generous. The restaurant is a bit on an elegant site, and people tend to wear a bit... More

Decided on Siena after our first choice had too long of a wait. This was by far the busiest place on Atwells. We were not aware it was Restaurant Week until seated. They only had a two top by the window which looked like it might be uncomfortable but was more than adequate. We went with the RW menu, since... More

Siena Restaurant is so good we went there back to back nights. Karen was our server and she did a great job. Never wrote anything down and got everyones order correct. We asked for her on our second night too! Apps. Entrees and desserts all great. We went w some of nightly specials. They did not disappoint.

Providence has a great deal of Italian restaurants but this is definitely in the top for me. Service is very good and the selection of dishes and wines is first class. Hard times pick one single dish. Everything is delicious. One of those places you always want to go back to.

We have visited all of Siena Restaurants, Providence, East Greenwich & Smithfield. We had a great experience in all of them. I think our favorite is East Greenwich followed by Smithfield, then Providence. One of most delicious items on the menu is their Bolognese. As an Italian, I have never been able the sauce that is served with this meal.

I have been to most of the restaurants on the hill and many in the North End and think the food here is fine but nothing special. My penne and chicken were undercooked, the tagliatelle my wife got was thin. I got a salad that in general was good but had way too many walnuts. The bread was fresh and... More

We did our 25th wedding anniversary dinner here last night and it was fabulous. We ordered the classic calamari which we have had before and as usual it was the best. A feather light crust on calamari that is so tender it is like butter. We ordered the chicken with lemon and honey glaze and risotto. And the pork chop... More

Despite having a table booked we waited for over 30 minutes to be seated. The bar area was cramped and not conducive to conversation. The food on offer was excellent although at the top end of the price scale. Overall good but we found better value for money in other offerings across Providence

Thank Stumpy1966
