Traveled there on a Saturday. Never disappointed. Wine selection was very good. Service was great along with the food. They had the garage doors open so you almost felt like you were sitting inside and outside at the same time. Would recommend this restaurant in an instant.

What a wonderful evening! Our daughter, a NYC foodie, was in town for the weekend so we decided to treat her to a great meal at Sienna on the Square, one of our favorite restaurants.
She loved everything about Sienna! Fun , casual, cozy vibe with spectacular food! John, our waiter, was terrific- sweet, knowledgable, enthusiastic and attentive!
We ordered a little bit of everything- fish, pasta, meatballs , dessert, etc! Each dish was creative and delicious! Two thumbs up!!

Good news as my wife's meal was good (meatballs and pasta). Bad news I had the Cioppino for $28. One shrimp, 5 very small clams, small piece of fish and maybe 10 small scallops. Not a lot for the money and the it was served luke warm. Would not recommend the Cioppino at all.

Service - spotty and moody. it was a slow evening and 70% off the wait staff was lingering around the bar texting and yet our waitress had a lot of attitude towards us
Food - ordered the charcuterie plate to start - good spread but typical. Mozzarella Meatballs & Bucatini - pasta cooked perfectly al dente, but the mozzarella meatball - where was the mozz? was hoping to cut in to oozing moss lava and was left digging for any sign

First day new chef and he hit it out of the park. Brushetta w/ cauliflower, arugla & peach salad with perfect goat's milk cheese, pasta w/ Bolognese & stuffed meatballs, and finally a panko breaded pork chop over seared greens. Add a nice Barolo and a lemoncello. Wow.

Enjoyed the dinner with my family. Was first occasion I've had to eat outside in Market Square, which with the exception of the crazy guy yelling (but quickly chased away), was pleasant. the menu did seem to be variations on the theme (most dishes had mushrooms or fennel). The polenta corn cake was exceptional.

I took my cousin who was visiting from Philadelphia to Sienna for a wonderful dining experience. Once again Sienna did not disappoint. Food, service, wine list, and cocktail options were amazing. Homemade pasta made a hit with both of us. Thank you Sienna for your consistency in excellence. Love the valet service!!

This could be the best dinner location in Market Square. The service is very good and the meal is very good. Not to pricey. Nice place to go if you would like the opportunity to dine outside in the Square. The flatbread options are very, very good.

Smallish Menu with mostly pasta choices and a few entrees. Famous for their meatballs, we have been to their Emporio meatball restaurant as well. Started with the flatbread with arugula & prosciutto - great choice for 4 people to share, excellent cheeses used. The specials on the Friday night we dined were all appetizers (no Entrée specials?) - sounded good, so I ordered 2 of them as my meal. One was a rabbit terrine (Fabulous and generous appetizer portion) and a softshell crab (Tiny, covered with a salad). My dinner companions all had homemade pasta - The classic with meatballs and marinara; the duck with gnocchi (was really a sliced duck breast with a few huge gnocchi on the side - cooked perfectly and delicious); and their Bolognese. The pastas were all delicious, agree with other reviews that the spices were quite heavy in the Bolognese so beware. Had several glasses of good wines, and everyone was very happy and all 4 of us agreed we would return. Best for casual good Italian meal for carnivores.

I ordered a sausage escarole onion type soup and an appetizer of 2 meatballs . It was a perfect dinner for me. Not too much food and lower carbs. Very good flavor ,mild and not too garlicky
The other diners ordered :chicken livers appetizer and the portion was large. I did not try it
The evening special was skirt steak with farrow and I was told it was delicious.
The pasta and meat balls were very tasty and a nice size portion.
The tomato mozzarella salad with balsamic dressing got A plus from the diner. She also ordered the meatball appetizer and was very pleased. I ate a lot of the Italian bread and even took some leftovers home . The bean spread for the bread was a good texture
The waitress was great , attentive and gratious . She laughed with us and no request was put her off.

Oh,…the Bolognese sauce is the best in the city!! Can't be beat, and the portion size allowed for a take-home bag. The only thing that I think continues to be a "miss" is that they serve great Italian bread…but with a white bean dip that has very little flavor. If you ask for butter, they have none, but will offer olive oil…which also has no seasoning or flavor. I'd suggest they either offer a whipped seasoned butter, or a seasoned olive oil. This would make a significant difference in the whole dining experience. But the Bolognese?? Yum!!

In Pittsburgh for visit and so glad we found this place. Great service and selections. Nice space and atmosphere. The only negative that prevented a 5-star food rating was the Chicken Liver Mousse appetizer. It was so salty that it was almost inedible. We had to ask for more bread and other ways to dilute the salt.

Came for a before-show dinner. Attentive and congenial service, delicious food, interesting cocktail and wine list. The chopped salad was very tasty with complex flavors. Both of our entrees were excellent and hearty. The house-made Limoncello was an exquisite dessert choice.
Our table near the entrance which was open to the street and outdoor seating was a bit noisy and lacking in ambience; in future I would ask to be seated further back into the restaurant. Outdoor seating would be enjoyable but on this occasion it was too hot. Restaurant is only a few minutes' walk from the Cultural District.

Really enjoy the location of Sienna on the Square. The flexibility to dine inside or outside is very nice. The Tiramisu is out of this world - it is a must try - share it if you must. You won't be unhappy with that choice.

Met some friends for dinner here. We were actually looking for a different restaurant, but were very please to have landed here. My Bolognese was delicious, and I had a taste of a meatball from a friend's plate, which was also good. My wife's prosciutto flatbread was also very tasty. Nice wine list and the bartender did well with cocktails. Server needed more coaching on the wine list, but she was still very helpful. There was an unpleasant event on the street outside of the restaurant, which was completely beyond the control of the house. Staff handled the event with professionalism and care for their patrons. It's east to get it right when things go your way, but the evening was pleasant even in spite of less-than-optimal circumstances. Far from perfect service, but it was a great value for the money, and we left the restaurant happy and sated.

I ordered a Caesar salad before dinner, and it was good. My husband had the tomato bisque soup, and he said it was good. We each ordered a different pasta, and we both said our pasta was just okay. Neither of us would order the pasta again.

I find the menu to be a little light and missing some basics. For example, could have a build your own flatbread choice and more basic pasta offerings such as Fettuccine Alfredo, linguine with clam sauce,etc..
But what they do is very good and I just happened upon an excellent and creative risotto dish.
I think the bar menu could also have a few more offerings.

We sat in an area that is open to the outside; the weather was great, so that was nice! The service was very good and the waitress friendly. The food was outstanding! Linguini Carbonaro - WOW!!! Would definitely return.

We both had the prezzo frizzo, which included salad and pasta. I had the malfalda bolognese and my wife had the gemelli pomodoro, both were very tasty. We started our meal with the ricotta and meat ball flat bread. Topped off with a sangria and we had a wonderful meal.

Timely service, but painfully loud music (do people call this "vibrant"?) made conversation difficult. Food was generously portioned but unbelievably salty. Might return for drinks & apps, but I couldn't do another meal.
