Solid Italian food. Convenient location in Stamford. Service slightly less attentive than optimal but good. Waiters a bit overwhelming and slightly assertive, came off as impatient. Overall nice place.

Food was outstanding as usual. Service was friendly. Wine list is small, but something for every taste and budget. We had the squid appetizer, grilled perfectly with faro salad and a little lemon. My wife had the scallops and brother in law the eggplant. All delicious. Linguine with white clam sauce was cooked perfectly with fresh littlenecks and the homemade pasta bolognese was our main dishes. Topped it off with a terrific tiramisu and lemoncello. Perfect meal.

We had a reservation and were asked our name at least 3 times even after we were seated. When I asked the waiter what the specials were he responded rather curtly that they were listed on the back of the menu. When our friend asked for some bread while we were looking at the menus he said we had to order first before they could bring us bread. During the meal I had ordered a seltzer and realized I had finished after three short sips-the cup was full of ice. I brought this to the attention of another waiter and he brought me a second one with less ice but in the end charged the bill for $5.50 for both. The food was truly delicious and we were pleased with the homemade pasta dishes and fish selection. The salad was a bit skimpy for the price. My husband and I and our friends would like to come back again but the “service” was just unwelcoming and really lacking.

Siena is a cozy place on a cold evening. My Bronzino special prepared w herbs was delicious. My friend had pasta/puntannesca, which looked a bit over-cooked. The value of the meal is reasonable and I would certainly return to try other entrees on the menu.

Business lunch. Nice place very good service. A little loud considering restaurant was no more than half full. Tasty pasta entrees, very ample portions. Would go back for lunch or dinner.

Pretty good. But uninspiring and nothing special.
Meatball appetizer was basic. SCIALATIELLI was boring and not very flavorful. CAVATELLI was pretty good.
All in all there are too many far better places to go back here.

Fabulous in every way. The food was outstanding and the service professional. My friends and I plan to return for our annual Christmas dinner gathering. We had utilized another restaurant for this in past years but this year we will be transitioning to Siena because the food was so delicious. I highly recommend this establishment for a special occasion or for a simple dinner out.

This was 2nd time going to Siena. Both times service was not the best. Too long to order and get water. Tables are close together and they overbook so people standing around causing no room to move gue for staff. Food was ok.

Absolutely fantastic! The food was some of the best I’ve had at a restaurant in a long time. My dining companions felt the same way and the only thing we regretted was that it took us so long to try this place. Everything was phenomenal. We plan to come back once a month and can’t wait to return!

A mixed bag! The restaurant was freezing and very loud—we opted to sit outside. Our server was attentive but got my order wrong, and while I enjoyed my dish enough, my partner’s order just wasn’t very good. We asked for salt because it was desperately needed, and the waiter looked offended. Overall, the atmosphere was a bit snooty and I can’t say it was earned!

Food and service was great. The service is quick and the ambiance is energetic. We were a party of 8 that was easily accommodated and all our food came out on time, hot and as ordered. The wine list has some hidden gems as well. This is really one of the best restaurants in the area.

The staff is very attentive. They bend over backwards to accommodate you. The food is excellent. Legit quality preparation. Pasquale, Pietro, and bartender Pepe are the magic trio. Best Italian Restuarant in Stamford, maybe all of Fairfield county. See for yourself.

If you are heading to a show in the area, this restaurant is convenient and fast. Otherwise food is only ok. All 4 dishes that we had were very greasy. Probably wouldn't go back. However the service was excellent and the waiters couldn't have been more polite.

Siena lived up to its reputation the other evening. Everthing was excellent and my clients were impressed. The noise level was a bit high, but we didn't find ourselves shouting over the din. It was manageable. Service was attentive, but not hovering; and the staff responded to my hand signals perfectly. Overall a very strong performance, which in the business context made me look good. I was very pleased, and so was everyone else in my party.

I tried this restaurant when it opened and it was too noisy. It was really nice this time. There were a number of tables filled but the noise level was just fine. Great food and the bottle of wine that the waiter suggested was awesome!! I would go back and will tell my friends.

The resturant felt like a a friends home, but with folks one had not met yet! . I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Porkchop, boine in was outstanding and others tried pasta and fish with the same result! Service was friendly but slow and the moderate priced wines were scarce on the list while they had outstanding high price selections

The complimentary bread and beans served for openers was bland, not worth the calories. Excellent grilled calamari. Linguine and clams just OK, clam sauce not much flavor. Penne with sausage and peas was good, but not outstanding. Server was knowledgeable and efficient, when you could find him. It's a relatively small room, maybe 20 x 40, so the noise level was high, which made conversation very difficult. I would probably not dine there again.
