“Very good, but not great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014 via mobile

Atmosphere was very nice, and food was good but not great. The stuffed peppers are pretty much a must to order. Some little things just bugged me, like the container for the olive oil being very messy. Had to step out to wash hands even to not feel greasy through the meal. I got the pork chop special, but is was a bit overcooked past medium and on the dryer side. Others at the table commented that our other dinner at 800 Maple was better, and I would agree. When the bill arrived, I definitely felt we didn't quite get what we paid for. Very solid, and I'll give them another try on a future trip.

“TRIED AND TRUE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

After a bad experience at Tabree we went to Siena's. EVERYTHING was fantastic. We have been there many times and it remains one of our favorites . They don't take reservations but some restaurants that do don't honor them anyhow. (Hint-Tabr--)

“Wood Burning Oven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

Good things come from Siena’s wood burning oven, thin crusted pizzas with a variety of unique toppings, roasted chicken, rack of lamb, and fresh Florida red snapper. From the kitchen comes a variety of appetizers, entrées and pastas influenced by the Northern Italian city from which the name is taken. When it comes to comfort food on a cold winter evening nothing beats the Osso Buco. Note: Siena does not take reservations and on a busy evening expect a lengthy wait for a table. The long and often just as busy bar provides a convivial place to wait

“Favorite neighborhood place to go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

Love the daily specials, especially 1/2 price wine and eggplant parm on Sundays.
Everything on the menu is of high quality and expertly prepared. We often get the pizza as take out. I highly recommend you stop and give it a try.

“Enjoyable Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013

First time at the Siena Restaurant. Very nice restaurant with a "supper club" atmosphere and somewhat intimate (convenient parking at a premium). Christmas music playing in the background added to the good feeling of a nice dinner. The calamari appetizer was good, I was a little disappointed with my caesar salad. Two of us had the Sea Bass special, and the other guest had the Salmon and everyone was happy with the dinners and drinks. Service was excellent, and the waitress very friendly and professional. (wish I could remember her name).
