It was a nice evening and the food was great! THe waitress was efficient and sweet. Thank you
I hope to be able to get a table for New Years Eve 2017/18...i can never get in more than 4. I probably will have 6. The pricing is a little on the higher side though.. Thank you

My wife and I visit for the first time. Very warm and welcoming with great music selection. Very friendly staff and exceptional and polite service. The meat and cheese tray appetizer with the pumpkin sauce and the great bread with olive paste was first rate, Classic Caesar and Apple & Arugula Salads were both very good, the new on the menu seafood pasta and the special beef tenderloin was off the hook delicious. We shared everything and had most enjoyable time, we certainly look forward to our next visit.

Good spot for pre-theater meal, very close to Heinz Hall. Menu has traditional Italian as well as some more contemporary ingredients / modernized recipes. Our party of four enjoyed our entrees as well as the arugula salad. We shared two desserts -- the rice pudding and the chocolate cake -- unique and delicious versions of both.

Sienna on the Square is a good Italian restaurant with a cozy atmosphere. Our wait-staff was knowledgeable about the dishes and very attentive. I would recommend Sienna on the Square for anyone looking for a good Italian meal downtown.

This is not my first visit to Sienna. Food and drink are always great. This was on New Year's Eve where many places have a set menu, over priced and just not that good. Sienna we were able to order from the menu. Had an appetizer and our meal. Service was excellent. Will return and will also recommend. Thanks Sienna.

Went with friends on NYE early to avoid rush. No long wait for table, nor we pushed to leave. Food was great and service was attentive. Wine could be pricey, but pours were excellent. Only bad experience was that high tops are very high and waitress knocked my water onto my lap trying to reach middle of table. Overall, would return.

server super helpful and friendly, wine excellent. a bit dark in the front of the restaurant made the place seem dreary, soft lighting would help. slightly bigger menu for lunch apps would be nice, too. but overall, we totally enjoyed it!

We had an early dinner on a Friday so we could make the Pens game. The food and service was excellent...The wine and beer was good and the bar and restaurant was full. The only issue we had was as a party of 4 the tables were rather tight and didn't allow for a lot of room but all in all it was a great time!!!

Defiantly try the mozzarella meatball. The sauce was outstanding and the quality of the meatball itself was something I'd never had before. The pasta is made from scratch and you could tell the difference in the dishes. I ordered the Linguini with Brussels sprouts and mistake mushrooms while my boyfriend order the gnocchi. Both were fabulous.

We were disappointed somewhat, as a friend had strongly recommended Sienna.
Nice decor, convenience to downtown events, variety of pasta dishes, wine list.
Meh - the food was okay. I will say that I felt the portions on the pasta were reasonable. While we took some home, I didn't feel bloated after having mine and tasting the others. We had the beef tartare and, again, it was okay...the crisps that came with it were sliver thin and useless. Toast points would have been better.
Noise level was a problem. For the size restaurant, the volume of background music was too high and what's with Janis Joplin and James Brown in a cozy Italian restaurant? I had to ask to have the music turned down.
Seating-it's a small place so most of the tables for 4 are in the bar area...which is also the noisiest. And the high top tables in the bar area are very high...it was hard to get up and down on the seats.
Bottom line...while a lot like many small New York Italian restaurants in size and menu, I can only say it's okay.

we had a wonderful dinner prior to attending the nutcracker at the benedum. our waitress was very informative and attentive. and the food was very filling and delicious!! our only complaint was that we were seated by a large family with small children that were being disruptive.

Sienna is one of my favorite restaurants. Outstanding food, great atmosphere and friendly staff all add up to one of Pittsburgh's best restaurants. My most recent visit was with a very special person and the atmosphere was perfect.

Every year my sister and I decide to skip the Christmas gifts and experience a night out and dinner. We were both very happy with our decision. Our server was very helpful when it came to drink and food recommendations. We were very pleased with our 2016 restaurant pick!

We made reservations to go prior to a show on Saturday evening. Our server was very friendly but over all service was lacking. We had to ask for pepper for salads. No cheese or pepper offered for main entrees. My main course arrived very cold. One other meal was cold but the other two were up to temperature. Overall, I feel that the starters are always better than the main courses here.

The hostess wasn't very friendly when we got there. She made is seem like she had better things to do then take us to our table. Luckily our waitress was a lot nicer. The two kids got buttered noodles which of course is common for kids but they were drenched in butter. I will say the noodles itself were yummy. Tasted fresh. My friend and I both got a caesar salad, which had a fabulous lemon taste to the dressing. We also go the meatball flatbread and it was fabulous! I loved that they stuck ricotta on the pizza as well. This kids like the look of it and ate it as well. So after that experience I would go back for flat bread for sure.

My wife and I went to Sienna on Friday night with friends of ours. None of us have had the opportunity to experience this gem of a restaurant! Great menu with specials offered for appetizer and entree. I had the Lamb Osso Bucco special, which was fantastic! My wife and friends each had a different pasta entree which they all raved about, especially the meatballs. We sat in the bar area, which was busy but not too loud, so not to interfere with conversation. Overall, our experience was outstanding, the food was excellent, the service was outstanding and I would certainly recommend this restaurant to friends and family. I know that I will be back. Oh, I also recommend that you take advantage of the valet parking just out front of the restaurant for $10, and you get a $3 credit on your bill at Sienna.

Very nice overall dining experience. One person in our group has a very serious nut allergy. This was mentioned to the server prior to ordering. The server noted this special dietary need. She returned to our table to say that she informed the chef and kitchen. She reviewed the 'nut free' menu selections and made recommendations. In addition, the General Manager/Manager on duty, approached our table to discuss our needs. The extra attention and care given to us was outstanding. We appreciated the extra efforts devoted to making our meals and dining experience excellent. Thank you!

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.
