Excellent! Would definitely recommend it to others
I went here for dinner with a friend (we wanted to check out the new neighbourhood spot!). The restaurant was cozy and warm- huge upgrade from before! The service was great- friendly but not pushy. We loved the wine selections and my friend and I shared the beef carpaccio and each got a pasta. I really enjoyed the pappardelle and my friend loved the ravioli. For the value in the neighbourhood, I'd highly recommend this as a spot for date or catch up with friends.
The pizza dough is amazing!!!!!
Great neighbourhood spot for pizza and fresh made pasta.
Stopped into this restaurant on my trip to vancouver.
Everything was spectacular - the environment, the food, the service
I recommend it highly
Service was good. Food was bad. Waste of money.. Avoid.
Under new ownership, food was good. Small menu well executed. Nice setting for a friends get together.
We were greeted promptly at the door and then left standing there while the server went to take a food order from a table. Once seated we ordered some olives and I had a gin martini. The martini was really awful, it was doused with vermouth and there was no good gins available despite the restaurant offering a gin martini on their menu. In hindsight I wish I had of said something and returned it. The olives were only $5 for a huge bowl (about 30 olives?). Not to complain about getting too much food (!) but we would have happily paid a bit more for a small amount of high quality olives. The entrees were pretty good-we both had pastas. The wine menu is only comprised of Italian wines. Would be nice to see a variety including some BC and US wines. We wanted to order another drink during dinner but nobody came by and we sat with empty plates and glasses and had to pull someone aside to get our cheque as we were heading to a show (which we informed the server of at the start). The restaurant was quite busy, maybe not enough staff working. It was a disappointing experience overall as we were really looking fwd to a new restaurant in our neighborhood.
Feature salad, with apple and goat cheese, was delicious but the server warned us the kitchen may be close to sold out (at 6:15pm. ). I think he was right because the 3 we ordered looked like 2 stretched out.
Chorizo and kale Pizza was dry and ‘dusty’ with all the good stuff in the middle and the too-thick doughy crust surrounding. Poor distribution! Not enough oomph. Wanted chilies and olive oil but it was too busy to be demanding.
Squash fettuccine also kinda bland and not hot. (Asked for salads first, but it all came together. The server did acknowledge and apologize for that. )
Service was pleasant and ok, but on 2 occasions he said ‘I’ll be back in a minute’ and he definitely wasn’t. Ie. to order dessert/coffee, so we had to skip.
Chocked it up to newly opened restaurant kinks. And we know we were there during the pre -theatre rush.
We will probably be back to give it another try.
We like the ambiance and location.
The food was delicious and the service was friendly and prompt. We were just a little surprised at how limited the menu was. About six choices of pizza and pasta, only one salad option, and a few other appies. We really missed the antipasto platter.
Very convenient location for the Stanley theatre.
They have a delicious Valentine’s Day tasting menu that is more filling than you’d expect!
Family dinner out! Grandma was a little picky but the rest of us loved it and would came back !
Beef carpaccio was amazing . Small but tight menu .
Arrived to a warm welcome by the manager. Seated immediately and informed this was opening night under new name. Decor is modern, subdued lighting is at perfect level, tables not too close together. Very nice look and feel for a date. We were offered tastes of the wines served by the glass to help choose. Acceptable but neither were the fruity dry type that I like. The quality of wine choices could be improved, at least for our tastes. We ordered 2 pastas within 5 minutes of arriving. After waiting 50 minutes trying to stretch our glass of wine, I had to find the manager to ask for our food and it came 5 min later. Then we had to rush dinner because we had a show to attend, a fact we had given the server when ordering. The pastas were tasty and a suitable quantity, but don’t expect a pasta main alone to fill you up. Overall, I will try it again when looking for a simple pizza pasta dinner with a nice ambiance, and hope the service issues have been sorted out when I do.
Overall, the quality of the food was mainly good - a nice tuna crude appetizer and pizza, though an uninspiring focaccia (somewhat tough and soaked in olive oil) - but we found the menu excessively limited. There's only one appetizer aside from the focaccia, no salads and no 'secondos' (mains), despite them showing a couple of mains on their website. Also no specials, even on a Saturday night. The ambience was nice (low light and candles), though coats don't stay on the backs of chairs and there didn't appear to be a coatrack near the entrance. Also, the drinks menu was very light - three beers, a number of wines, and nothing else. The service was warm and friendly, but I really think they need to offer more to induce me to come back.
We had a great time and the food was really, really good.
Great service, delicious food. Highly recommended.
Some of the best food I've eaten in Vancouver. Every bite was a joy.
Food was excellent, as was the service. Crowded before the Art’s club performance and difficult for cross table talk if you have hearing problems. Will definitely go again but try for a corner table.
I have always enjoyed myself at Siena - the food and service are always excellent. I would like to request that you bring back the antipasto platter - this is one my favs and was recently taken off the menu. Keep up the good work!!
Incredible food and great service! Will definitely be back.
No specials during the holiday season, but everything we tried on the regular menu was excellent. Service was friendly and efficient. An excellent neighbourhood Italian restaurant that I would highly recommend.
Menu very limited due to Renovations but service was pleasant. Food a bit bland.
Limited choices on the menu, but reliably good food.
new owners, same chef, different vibe.
Caught them in the middle of menu overhaul. They have added thin crust pizza, probably a good idea for the pre-theater crowd. But this week the menu was still a bit sparse. Food is still great though, the Lamb Ragu was excellent. Staff said the rest of the menu and the daily specials would be back in a week or two. We'll worth checking coming back to check that out.
Menu has changed since the last time we were therevand is just as delightful as the previous menu.
Service was incredible, their knowledge of the wine list was very helpful. Siena has a great ambience and a menu which also had good vegetarian options. Our mains were good sized and absolutely amazing, the special salad was delicious, and food came out in perfect timing. Very happy to have found this little spot close to home.
This is a new spot in South Granville and is focused on hand made pastas and pizza.
The wine list is small and exclusively Italian, with lots of grapes I've never heard of.
Friendly staff and great playlist
Not one of our faves but good .... we’d go again if our faves are all unavailable.
We enjoy dinner before plays. Timing and service always work perfectly. Highly recommended.
Waiters were lovely, but dinner took quite a while to come, due to pre-theatre rush, I think. When it came, it was great.
My husband and I and our friends have been to this restaurant a couple of times before we go to the Theatre. It is very quaint and the food and service is always great! We will be back!
A wonderful neighbourhood restaurant that cares about their cooking! Highly recommend it.
Food is good, but service was rushed and not accommodating.
Enjoyable meal and good service. Would have liked to see more than one gluten free option
There was only one person waiting on tables Sunday evening and I was left with the feeling that attention was no longer of importance immediately after the main course was served. A little "How is your meal?" "Can I get you anything else?" would have been appreciated. Unfortunately I for one was left wanting perhaps a little more water and a little more Parmigiano on top of my pasta but chose to remain silent and just enjoy the company of my dinner guests.
Great food and wine. We were there early on a Saturday evening after a matinee at the Stanley. Great wine recommendation. Quality food. They choose to have a small menu and do it really well!
Four of us went for dinner on Friday evening before the theatre. Ordered the wrapped burrata with arugula and heirloom tomatoes, however no tomatoes! The kale salad ordered by our friends was very salty. 3 people in our party ordered the daily risotto, it was only warm and not thoroughly cooked. The spinach and ricotta ravioli was fairly "plain" and again not hot. It was super noisy in the restaurant so hard to hear each other over the voices of others. I don't think we will be back anytime soon. Lots of other restaurants in the area.
We stopped here for dinner before a play at the Stanley and had a delicious meal. We both had the beet risotto which was excellent, and finished with the lemon tart. Service was timely and friendly which was good, given we had a deadline to leave by. We will definitely eat here again!
