About Siena Ristorante Toscana
For over 18 years Siena has been Austin’s premier destination for authentic Tuscan cuisine. Locally owned and operated Siena's owners wanted to share their love of Tuscany with Austin diners. Utilizing the talents of long time veteran of the Austin food scene, Chef Harvey Harris, Siena's goal is to transport the dinner from the hills of North Austin to the rolling hills of Toscana. Chef Harvey received his Master's Chef in Italian cuisine while attending culinary school in Piedmonte Italy, but his heart is in Tuscany where he lived and worked. All food at Siena is prepared to order, pasta is made fresh daily as well as all stocks and sauces. Our food is complemented by an award-wining wine cellar and served in rustic, elegant surroundings of thick stone walls and tall wood-beamed ceilings. Whether visiting for a light lunch, happy hour, special event, or a romantic evening, experience the welcoming charm of Tuscany close to home.

Siena Ristorante Toscana Ratings and Reviews
We were very excited to visit this restaurant after so many people told us to visit. I am pretty confident the service would've been MUCH better had there not been a very large party seated beside us amongst being a pretty packed house on a Saturday night at 7pm. It took very long to get our food, longer to get our check and even longer to get our check once we submitted payment. We were there a little over 2 hours. I wasn't impressed by our meal but the restaurant is so beautiful at night. We could hear conversations from everyone around us which made it very hard to hear my husband who was seated directly in front of me.
As soon as we walked in we knew it was going to be great. The building is absolutely gorgeous and very well designed. Our waiter Mason was very knowledgeable and made recommendations that we took - and each course surpassed the last one. What a treat. Great atmosphere. Great service. Great food. If we lived in Austin we would be recurring customers. I highly recommend Siena.
The Siena Ristorante Tosca has a great ambience and the service was attentive. However on this occasion the food was not very good. The calamari were not crisp, the mussels did not have the usual Italian flavor and were overcooked and the Trout was over cooked. The choice of side dishes was very limited. The panna cotta desert was unpleasant to taste.
We are from Katy, Texas, but we try and go to Siena whenever we are in Austin. The ambience is good, and our server(s) have been friendly and personable. We agree that the crab fricassee appetizer is the best tasting option on the menu. We also have enjoyed the bolognese, the salad greens with apple, and the portobello mushrooms with truffle. The bread with boar's meat had a mixed reception in our group. Our waiter this last time, Paul, was very interesting and especially knowledgeable.
We really enjoyed everything from the food to the atmosphere. All except, the bread we ordered from the sides list. The rolls they bring out are amazing, much better than the other (we both didn't eat it). Fantastic pasta, red fish and wine list. Our server was so sweet and made the night even better. Highly recommend for special occasions.
I was throughly impressed with Siena! I made reservations for my wife and I as a Mother's Day surprise. The atmosphere is very cozy, classy and romantic. The food was out of this world. I would highly recommend the bruscetta with wild braised boar ragu. The wine list was quite extensive and there is surely something for everyone.
Very nice place for our anniversary. Waiter was attentive and knowledgeable.
Ordered an appetizer which included fried calamari, shrimp, and salmon. Shrimp and salmon were good, but the calamari was much smaller and cooked to a hard crunch.
Pasta was done well as were the salads.
Ordered the trout with shrimp as entree and it was good as well.
No room for dessert.
Very nice for date night, anniversary, etc.
What an amazing surprise. No idea why we waited so long to eat here. Came in for our 17th anniversary and realized we've been missing out. The food and drinks were fantastic and its a wonderful environment. It's so nice to have a pleasant surprise. Short Ribs and the Flounder special were excellent and the Gold Rush Manhattan was the best I've ever had. Can't wait to go back and try more.
My wife and I have dined at Siena many times over the years. This last visit was a different experience for us. It must have been Prom Night as there were many loud teenagers in the building. We sat upstairs for the first time and enjoyed the view. The food, as always was exceptional. The service was unusually slow this time and when the bill was presented, I was unpleasantly surprised. $21.00 for a double bourbon is ridiculous and my side dinner salad was 9 bucks. I feel that we really did not receive $106's in food or service and may have to find a different venue for future Anniversaries.
I was with 3 colleagues for a business lunch. We were all delighted with our food. Their homemade pasta cannot be beat. Their attention to detail has made it a favorite of our out of town guests and company leadership for the past 3 years. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for something special.
