Sienna On the Square Ratings and Reviews
This is one of my favorite restaurants. ...
This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is usually amazing and it feels like you are in a small restaurant in Rome. Anthony and the rest of the employees were very nice.
We enjoyed the food. It was good but just not quite as good as last time. We loved the chopped salad. The crab risotto was good, but just not as good as the lobster risotto from the time before. Not sure what it was. I did have a cold lump of crabmeat in the middle of mine but after that, I didn't notice more crab. I'm sure it was in there, just so mixed up that it wasn't noticeable. In contrast, the root vegetables were too big - lumps within the risotto. Don't get me wrong, it was good, just not the quite up to par. It was the same as my friend's. She had the hand made gnocchi last time with a cream sauce. She could not stop talking about that gnocchi. This time with an odd mix of veggies and a brown sauce - good but not as good as the cream sauce version.
I can't wait to go back, just looking for better luck next time.
Also, i would like them to offer more options made without gluten.

Worst dining experience in Pittsburgh ever. No vegetarian options and no concept of taking care of the customer. Couldn't even get butter for bread.
Staff not helpful at all. Felt so badly for our out of town guest who was forced to order bucatini with red sauce and discovered, after being questioned by the staff several times, that it was undercooked.
My parents also received undercooked pasta - way harder than al dente. So imagine our surprise when they charged our guest for her meal.
Don't go. It's just not worth it.

Great place for dinner. Very relaxed and laid back atmosphere. Not at all pretentious. The food was excellent and not overly priced. Great wine selection, especially the wines of Tuscany. Valet parking right out front is great. Definitely worth the trip downtown.

I had made a reservations weeks ahead for light up night. A few days before, a friend of ours wanted to join. The employees here went out of their way for 3 days trying to rearrange the tables and reservations in order to accommodate our additional 2 guests, on one of the busiest night of the year I'm sure. The night before they called to confirm that they had found a way to make it work. What awesome customer service! Not to mention the food was delicious!

Have been to Sienna on the Square many times. Food continues to be good, just a notch down from the last few times we were there. So many places to go in Pittsburgh now, hopefully Sienna will keep the pace of others.

The service was AMAZING. The food was average to above average. IT happened to be lovely evening weather wise and with the music from the next door restaurant it set the stage for a perfect evening. We would definitely return to this restaurant.

The overall ambience was very nice. The sourdough bread we received prior to our appetizer was very fresh and tasty, but we asked our waiter for butter and we were told that the restaurant does not carry any butter in-house..... we were fairly puzzled by this butterless phenomenon.
The salad was small and the ingredients were fresh. We ordered the gnocchi and agnolotti- the agnolotti was entirely too salty but the gnocchi (especially with the fried sage) was really delicious.
Our waiter was attentive and the overall experience was nice.
We are still perplexed by this lack of butter ?! I know the bread is complimentary but who doesn't like bread with butter ? And what restaurant doesn't carry any butter especially when you have dessert on the menu ?

This was our second time to Sienna. The food was great the first time, and it was great again. Servers were attentive but not pushy. We started with a bruschetta that was different but delicious. We both had salads (Caesar and arugala) that were also excellent. I had the seafood risotto and my wife had a pasta with meat balls. My risotto was very good. My wife liked her pasta very much, but prefers her pasta a little less dente than she received it (for me, it was exactly the way I like it). I had a very nice Italian wine to compliment the meal for $10 per glass.

food was delicious- pasta with meatballs-nothing better. arugula salad was perfection. Staff was very nice and helpful. Tall tables might be a non option for older folks but otherwise no issues here. So glad it was recommended to us

We ate at Sienna on the Square this past weekend for my friend's 40th birthday and it couldn't have been better. We had a great time. The drinks were great, the food was awesome and the staff, most especially the manager was awesome. She gave us a tutorial on amaros which taught each of us something. We ate the straciatella appetizer which was amazing as was the lamb pasta. If you're in the neighborhood definitely try out this new spot!

The hostesses were rude and not professional. The food was good but not worth the prices. We asked for dressing on the side and were told only one salad was that possible but each is made at the order..? It was 48 degrees with the large window/door open. People were complaining of being cold to which they did not address. We had a reservation which the hostess did not have record and attempted to seat us outside on the sidewalk which I specifically said in the reservation that I did not want. Will not be back.

Disappointingly not customer focused. My husband and I chose to celebrate our wedding anniversary here. The food was good, but the chef/service staff is rigid. My husband does not like certain veggies - they would not switch the side dishes - so he had to order something that was not his first choice - or get a meal which he would not fully enjoy. The topper was when I asked for butter with the bread - olive oil was served - I was told the server was NOT ALLOWED to bring butter to the table. Does chef not realize that I AM THE CUSTOMER paying a lot of money for a meal - I should be able to have butter with the bread. Obviously we will NEVER be going back. They may go the way of SALT - another rigid chef restaurant. I will also be posting a review on YELP to warn others unless they want to eat as chef desires, they should go elsewhere.

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

Made a reservation for 2 for this restaurant, but after arriving decided to dine at the bar. Informed the hostess of my decision. Food was very good, bartender a little mechanical, but good. Had a good time, but imagine my surprise that I did not receive my dining points! Don't know what happened, but have to assume it's because we stayed at the bar where we spent close to $200. WHY? Contacted opentable and had courtesy points added to my record. Rather odd I thought!

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.
