About Siena Ristorante Toscana
For over 13 years Siena has been Austin’s premier destination for authentic Tuscan cuisine. Chef Harvey Harris 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. Tuscan food in general is gluten free so over 65% of their menu is always gluten free!. Utilizing local farms and ranches Chef Harvey sources out products that are hormone free, chemical free and natural for his menu. 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

Definitely date night or special occasion type atmosphere. Really no options for small children, as I'm not sure that is what their aim is. Totally authentic Tuscan cuisine. Our waiter was wonderful and very pleasant and well-versed on the menu and the food. It was a wonderful meal and great ambiance for date night.

Had been a cpl times years before but stopped due to limited menu and food only fair. No change. Ambience very nice, service friendly, polite and efficient, margaritas pretty good. Menu still limited. Calamari appetizer only fair. Got a chef's suggestion- atlantic cod, also recommended highly by our waitress, in part because of the sauce. Very little sauce, fish had almost no flavor. My friend got the Tagliatelle alla Bolognese, flavor fair, greasy. Overall very disappointing. Honestly I would go back to Olive Garden or Romano's Macaroni grill before I would return here. Given some of the other well known Italian restaurants in Austin I'm very surprised that Siena gets the 4 star rating that it SUPPOSEDLY does. No plan to return.

Came for a birthday celebration. The food, service and ambiance were excellent. Our waiter was extremely helpful, friendly, and attentive making the entire evening very special. Finding Panna Cotta on the dessert menu was a surprise and a special treat. Will definitely return.

The server was good but new and he never came back to pick up the bill so we could leave! From what i observed he had to many tables at once! We did eventually have to take the check to the manager ourselves. The food was good portions on the main dish were small, but the ambiance was great!

Waitress did not listen well or make much eye contact. My husband order for both of us, but she missed one of the entrees...when brought to attention, she did bring out the second entree relatively quickly.. Food was fantastic!!!

I absolutely love Italian food and I've been to several of Italian restaurants in town and this place has some of the most authentic Italian food. Everything I've had to eat there is so delicious!!! It tastes very similar to foods Ive had in Venice and Florence. I highly recommend this place for its food and service.

It's hard to find a great Italian food in Austin, especially out on the 360 corridor. This place is perfect for relaxing, quiet dinner for 2 or a small group. Plenty of wine selections and they have smaller portions for some of us who don't require a huge meal (they have normal size plates as well though).

I was so excited to try Sienna after reading the recent reviews. Unfortunately, my experience did not match the others who gave 4 or 5 stars. The fig appetizer was delicious, but the rest of the food was very, very salty. Our waitress was gruff, distracted and unknowledgeable. Wish I had better things to say, especially after spending so much!

Lots of great reviews BUT this is not the place as described. Love Italy and Italian food. Everything here overly salted and otherwise bland. In fact salt seemed to be only spice in kitchen. Sliced beef tenderloin was closer to flank steak. Salad was greens only drenched in olive oil with splash of balsamic. Bruschetta with boar was sad and salty. They forgot bread until our check arrived. Pasta was terrible. None of us could finish our meal. Wine list was limited. Asked for highly recommended Super Tuscan. $70 recommendation was young and thin but not terrible. Looked up later -- it was $20 retail so not a good value or recommendation. I'm not adverse to paying up for excellence and understand restaurant mark-ups. Ambiance was good. Overall I would avoid. I hate chains and rarely ever go, but food wise even macaroni grill would be a step up....do yourself a favor and avoid. They did take $25 off bill but still a $200 disappointment.

All around an excellent experience. We had requested a table in a less noisy area and that is exactly where we were seated. This is our favorite restaurant in the Austin area. We live 45 minutes from Sienna but it is well worth the drive.

Met a friend @ Siena for dinner; neither of us had been here before. The waiter was attentive enough. The bar and dining area is lovely; for a Monday, it was not busy. We had the calamari which was good but salty. We both ordered the pre-fixe (salad, pasta & salmon on potatoes). The salad was salad - Ok; the pasta was SO salty it was returned for a replacement which was much better; the pasta was very good. For me, the salmon was good and the potatoes it was served on were not quite done. My friend said her salmon was uber salty but she did not send it back. I would probably think twice before coming here again any time real soon.

This place is SO STUPID GOOD! It's incredible Italian food that will just blow your socks off. I got the pasta with the mushrooms and white truffle oil but added chicken and I never wanted to stop eating it. The Pinot noir by the glass was also INCREDIBLE! I highly recommend this place if you are longing for amazing Italian food in a bit of a nicer evironment that isn't too snobby!

Average food, nice place. It may have just been a bad day on the food. It was VERY salty. Also, the air conditioning was subpar and it was warm. In a place with temps in the 100s, a day in the mid 90s should not be a problem.
Siena is Always a Fabulous Experience
My wife and I had dinner with another couple who are dear friends. We all had a marvelous time. The food at Siena is authentic and delicious. Dining there is always a wonderful experience, from the experienced wait staff to the building and decor. Being able to dine at Siena is one of the things I love about living in Austin.
Nice Evening with Some Qualifications
Mezzanine smelled moldy; hostess seemed distracted and inattentive. Front of house appeared chaotic without obvious cause. Hostess (or anyone else) didn't initially greet us, or say "I'll be right with you". Marinara was overly salty, but other dishes were tasty. Lovely setting.
Austin Tuscan at it's best
Be prepared to spend some money, but Sienna is a real gem and there is no better for Tuscan cuisine. Open kitchen, mulitple qualified chefs, constantly burning wood ovens, lots of little nooks and crannys to dine in. Just a wonderful place that's perfect for a special occasion.
