Sienna On the Square Ratings and Reviews
This is one of my favorite places for lunch (or, occasionally, dinner) downtown. I always have some sort of pasta, often the Bolognese. This time, I had gemelli with braised boar, very flavorful and off the beaten path. My lunch companion had her usual tomato soup and salad, and raved about the soup.
The first thing you notice about Sienna on the Square is the ambiance. Low lighting and candles compliment the brick interior setting the scene for an intimate dining experience. I would return again just for that experience.
Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, creating a great dining experience. Service was fast and convenient. I had a glass of Pinot Noir and the risotto which was one of the best in the city.
I was able to make a reservation on OpenTable at 9pm for 10:30pm the same night. I would definitely return for lunch, dinner or late dining.
Good food and great service. Enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and meeting with friends. Server very knowledgeable and attentive to needs. Nice recommendations with "over selling". Been here for business lunch, dinner with friends and also dinner before a show. Never disappointed
I tried to order a pasta without the bacon and was told that no substitutions or removals would be possible. This is common in resturants that reheat food and do not freshly prepare each meal. For the price, I was incredibly disappointed by that and would never recommend anyone else i know going there. There are many more resturants in the area that offer freshly made food with better prices.
Sienna on the Square was a mixed experience. The location, service and ambience were great. We started out at an outside table and when we asked to move inside they were very accommodating. The menu had some interesting options, the wine list was decent, and we each chose something different. My colleague thought her pasta was quite good. I had the risotto and found it much too heavy - too much sauce that covered up the vegetable flavors. The risotto was mediocre at best.
With all the new restaurants in Pittsburgh we almost forget Sienna on the Square, but it remains one of our go to places for all seasons. When it is bitterly cold outside it is always warm and cozy. When it is warm outside the doors open and their is outdoor seating and the dining room feels outdoors. The menu seems new every time my wife and I go there. Always interesting selections. This visit I had the grilled swordfish which, of course, is new on the menu, and was spectacular. I always find the wine selections interesting, and things we wouldn't normally try. The staff at Sienna is just the best of any restaurant. Everyone from the servers, to the manager, and hosts, are concerned that your experience is outstanding.
We were very disappointed in the salads we ordered. They were so small and not worth the $16.00 we paid for them. We complained to the staff but our waitress seemed annoyed at us and a man came and gave us dressing which was very deceiving as the goat cheese. The arugula salad with apples came with one slice of thinly sliced apple and less than a cup of salad. It was pathetic. We ordered grilled chicken and it came with three strips of chicken. We left hungry. Very disappointed in the quality and quantity of food. With tip, the $20 lunch was not worth the money at all.
Sienna offers good food in a great atmosphere within Pittsburgh's Market Square. Service is always superb. Dessert was the only miss on this outing, but the restaurant took care of this and did not impact the only experience. When it comes to downtown dining, I always include Sienna on my recommendation list and it continues to not disappoint.
Food and service was excellent. Our waitress was very nice and explained different selections not on the menu. Meatballs were soft and the sauce was delicious. I will definetely return and bring friends and family. Nice wine list and appetizer selections. If visiting from out of town or looking for someplace different you will not be disappointed. I suggest making reservations especially on the weekends. I was there on a week night and it wasn't busy but did not have to wait for a table. Ecellent fresh Italian food.
