Pittsburgh is really turning into a great food town. Sienna was cozy and friendly, and the food was great. No matter what you order, get a stuffed meatball. It should be rule! Excellent cocktails, great staff. We had a great time.
The food here was very good. I had grilled swordfish with ramp pesto, picked ramps, local mushrooms, peas, asparagus and chickpea croutons. I was blown away by the flavors. I would order this dish again in a heartbeat. Very elegant presentation.
We also had the truffle gnocchi which was very delicious as well.
Our waitress was friendly and very helpful in explaining the menu, and also gave us excellent recommendations.
The weather was pleasant outside, so they opened the front of the restaurant to the outside. That made it very easy to carry on conversations since the noise level was very moderate.
I would put this restaurant on the short list of places to dine downtown,
Salad, wine, service, ambiance were great. Bolognese was a bit odd. Not bad, but I was looking for a more classical bolognese and this isn't that. A bit strangely sweet for my taste. Others will no doubt enjoy that, it just wasn't what I was looking for.
Mother’s Day very nice dinner
The restaurant is small and offers a great dining experience. All of the dishes were innovative and used quality ingredients. All 4 people at our table enjoyed their meals and everyone ordered something different. The service was excellent and we were seated promptly for our reserved time.
Two slightly negative comments: 1) The bread that was served with the meal was boring and not that substantial. 2) There are no booths in the restaurant. The chairs at the tables were very high (similar to bar stools). If you have a back problem, I don't know if you would be that comfortable on the chairs.
Great location and all were happy with food... Even vegan eaters!
The specialty drink was half full.. 12 dollars
Small venue and was a bit loud with the front open to market square, but the food was delicious and staff was courteous as well as knowledgeable on explaining options and answering questions. Without a doubt we will go again.
We were disappointed after reading the excellent reviews 2 of the 3 pasta dishes were over salted. Very limited menu and no substitutions are permitted.
Dinner with friends, great night out
We had the meatball appetizers and they were amazing. The gnocchi was incredible and the lemon pasta was superb. Our service was outstanding. Can't wait to go back.
The customized cocktail list is always a treat. Meals are hearty and filling. This is a great spot to go before an evening in the cultural district as the wait staff and kitchen are fulling aware if you are trying to make an event in time.
Food is very good . The potatoe soup was great . I also had the chicken with gnocchi , that was very good. However they took off the shrimp with polenta, wish it was still on menu.
We each had a different entree but some dishes were too salty.
Went for a pre-concert dinner on a Saturday evening. Weather was very nice, so the restaurant opened up to Market Square. The noise level was loud, not quite to the point of having to shout, but pretty close. The food was good. the waiter was reasonably attentive, so no complaints there. Overall an energetic casual dining spot.
This was my first time a Sienna in the Square and it was wonderful! From the wait staff to the food, it was just great! I will definitely be returning.
The waitress was awesome. The Pesto Spaghetti was heaven on a plate!!! The meatballs lived up to the hype -- stupendous!
BUT the "Happy Hour" drinks were extremely weak and we did not like the "spread" for the bread. They would not serve us butter??? Gave us oil and vinegar instead!!! (for bread???)
Overall I'd give it a solid "7" -- if they served butter, had stronger drinks and the prices were lower it'd be a "9.5"
Had dinner while visiting our son in Pittsburgh. Food was wonderful and service was fabulous. Will definitely return on future visits! Very enjoyable evening!
What a gem - fantastic food, great service and staff. The seared Tuna is supreme!
Our table was not ready and the couple at the table they had reserved for us stayed longer than expected. The host was very apologetic and comped us 2 appetizers for the inconvenience. Those 2 apps were outstanding! We had the most tender shrimp and polenta that I've ever tasted. We also had the flatbread with crab, artichoke hearts and roasted red pepper. Delicious. For our main courses my wife had the lemon spaghetti, which had a pesto sauce and the same incredible velvety shrimp. Outstanding. I had the bucatini pasta and mozerella stuffed meatball in a fresh tomato sauce. Great restaurant!
Everything was delicious. The tables are small but not close to each other so it felt intimate. We will be back for sure
Best Italian food I have ever tasted. New creations of Mediterranean food. Much more than pizza and spaghetti. Try the tomato bisque, the arugula salad, the flat breads and the risottos.
Interesting menu, great service and warm/pleasant environment.
The food was very tasty and the meal fit well in a lunch hour.
We sat at the high top tables ( they are VERY high!). Had great service and amazing food. Thought it was a good value.
We loved Sienna! The food and drink are terrific! The Cappelletti with pork cheek
Was so delicious!
Good menu flatbread app great and entrees. Our server was great, however the bar was a bit slow.
Our meals were absolutely wonderful. The food is very well prepared and the menu changes so it is worth going back. The restaurant was a bit noisier than usual because it was St. Patrick's Day, so we won't complain. The only negative was that every time someone entered or left the restaurant, the door is directly in the seating area and you get a blast of cold air.
Really great spot for a quick Italian meal . The pasta is really good
The scallops were amazing as well as the their staple menu item the meatballs. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable. Very nice experience.
I'm an out-of-towner and this was my first experience at Sienna on the Square. I come to Pittsburgh a couple times a year, and one thing or another had prevented me from trying the restaurant, though I'd noted a recent high rating from at least one local food critic. I was NOT disappointed.
I dined with two friends and our food -- risotto, kale salad, maflade bolognese, white bean soup -- was uniformly excellent and earned its just-right price. The atmosphere was warm and inviting; the service was friendly and attentive, without being obsequious; and the noise level was moderate, despite a largely packed restaurant at 7:30 on a Friday night.
Bravo Sienna on the Square! You provided the kind of Italian food experience one would hope to find in such an Italian-influenced city. You will be my first dinner choice on my next visit to Pittsburgh.
Wonderful food, original recipes, great take on Italian
Service was slow, delivered wrong items, incorrect information about menu, food was fair, not great
It was busy and we were a bit concerned about the time it took to place our order. We were dining before a show. But the host helped our waitress and sped the meal along so it worked out ok. The food was unique and very good. The chopped salad was excellent. As other have commented before there is a uncomfortably cold draft when the door is opened.
Always look forward to enjoying this restaurant after the shows. Great food and great service. Really nice when the doors are open in the summer. Recommend it to family and friends all the time. No one is disappointed! You have to try the meatballs!
What a pleasant experience.... service was great.... and our server asked if we were on a timeline so it was nice that they are cognizant of your schedule.... food was excellent.
Chicken took 25 mins to cook fresh (that’s ok if food turns out great) but then was rubbery and under seasoned. Halibut was fresh and tasty. Even though we had reservations they tried to stick us at high top in the bar vs regular table. Server was nice.
Sienna has become one of the restaurants we come back to often. The service is always amazing, the entire staff works as one team so if your server is busy someone else will step in and help. I'm not sure if that's official policy but that's how it seems to happen. No surly staff ever at Sienna! The menu changes often but some standards seem to remain, so it's always interesting. My wife and I especially love it in the winter because the restaurant seems so warm and cozy. Give Sienna a try !
Nice time and meal
Dinner prior to a show at the Benedum. Food was excellent and my friend, who had never fined there before, enjoyed her meal.
