A polished and energetic restaurant with Italian and Mediterranean cuisine curated by DineAmic Group's Chef/Partner, Fabio Viviani, also commonly known for his Celebrity Chef accolade as Bravo's "Top Chef Fan Favorite." The décor reflects a hybrid of a rustic Italian market, a fine dining restaurant and a modern, industrial tavern, bridging old world comfort and hospitality with a contemporary menu and design. When setting foot into this 10,000-square-foot eatery for lunch, dinner, late night cocktails or weekend brunch, you can expect to taste the same "from-scratch" Italian cooking fundamentals in pastas, pizzas, mozzarellas, gelato and everything between.

Siena Tavern was the perfect spot to celebrate my birthday with a delicious dinner before attending Hamilton. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable, the handcrafted cocktails were a fun change of pace and our food was amazing!! The ink squid pasta was on our son in-laws bucket list to have sometime and to his surprise there it was on the menu! It did not disappoint. Other dishes ordered that night were the lamb and a pizza, each were amazing and what a diverse menu!! So much fun I highly recommend Siena Tavern to anyone who would like to have a wonderful meal out with family and friends. Everyone will be able to find something they like on this menu!!

I’ve been many times but was a little disappointed this time around. The food was good but not great. My friend ordered the pasta carbonara in the jar and it tasted as if it had no salt. The server was also distracted by a friend that was visiting.

I highly recommend orderng the wagyu meatball appetizer -- it was delicious. I also had the butternut squash tortalacci and it was absolutely stunning. The sauce and the pasta had a beautiful balance about it and the fried sage was the most subtle, perfect touch. It was absolutely perfect.

I've always been happy with Siena Tavern and think they do a great job. The pizzas are always solid, the brussels sprouts salad is great, and the octopus is excellent. Service was attentive and prompt. I've been here several times and will keep going back.

My business partner and I went there for dinner while in Chicago for work. We sat at the bar upon a friend's recommendation. The Bartender was extremely helpful and friendly. I ordered the squid ink linguine and my partner ordered the gnocchi dish. Both were amazing dishes, and tried as we might, neither one of us could finish our dishes as the portions were a good size - so I would recommend sharing if possible. The crowd was lively, and the ambiance relaxing. I highly recommend this place for food, service, and atmosphere. I am looking forward to going back to Chicago and tasting the burnt pepperoni pizza here.

Went in for dinner at 8.45p on a Saturday. Table of 5, crowd was in their mid-30’s. Didn’t realize we wouls be eating great pasta dishes in a club. Music was way too loud - especially for 8.45p. I could understand turning it up at 10-10.30 but we could barely hear anything. We all left the resto with our ears ringing. Great pasta, but wouldn’t return. Service mediocre at best for the prices. One dinner dish went missing. Overall, wouldn’t return.

My dinner place of choice before the Chicago Marathon. The restaurant decor is beautiful upon entry, we were seated at our reservation time, and waitstaff was attentive. The beet salad was perfect as was my Duck Confit Risotto. BF has the spaghetti with crab in a lemon cream sauce with was equally delicious! I will definitely be going back.

I brought my boyfriend to Siena to celebrate his birthday. I was worried that it wouldn't be romantic enough but it turned out to be the perfect place to bring him. It was pretty crowded and noisy a little around the bar area but the dining area was a lot quieter and had the right intimate setting. We were seated next to a couple of all girl groups but we lucked out in that they weren't rambunctious so we could enjoy our meal, talk and have a good time.

I can't say enough good things about our waiter! He gave recommendations on the menu and based on our selections, helped my boo pick out a wine to complement our meal. He also brought out a bday dessert which was thoughtful. I would definitely come back!
