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.

I was in town for a conference and I was a party of 1. I have dined alone before, in other circumstances, but some establishments make single diners feel less than welcome. Not Siena Tavern, it was a great experience and my server Joe was very attentive and made an excellent wine recommendation. I will definitely visit Siena Tavern again when in Chicago next time

The homemade pasta was too aldente - barely cooked. The halibut was dry. The food came out very quickly after we ordered, but it wasn’t very good.

The dining experience was not great in the beginning, apparently there was a shift change and no one came to our table for 20 minutes. Even after we asked the hostess. So we grabbed the next server that came by and he took our order. Finally our waitress apologized and said it was a shift change and she didn’t know that she had our table. After that it was smooth sailing.

Good brunch! The goat cheese omelet was on point and the avocado toast was pretty good too. The savory dishes weregood but the sweet dishes are mediocre! Only the monkey bread was good out of the sweet options.

PS: horrible valet service

Went there in vacation this week.
Oh my God..noise absolutely terrible.
Do not recommemd unless you are late and willing to put up with a noisy place.
Not to be able to talk to my husband across the table was a big issue.
Food was great but no ambiance..have been to lots of nicer places with great food in Chicago!!

Server, Broc, was knowledgeable, friendly, and overall a treat to have as a server. The food was delicious and served very nicely. We sat outside but the inside was a pretty cool ambiance. I’d recommend and will be back.

Service not professional. Server was nice but seemed frazzled.

We asked our server to box an appetizer but she failed to tell bus boy in time so he but extra paper/garbage from the table on it when he cleared the table. She saw this and told him we wanted it to go.... she then watched as he cleared the garbage from the top & boxed the appetizer & gave it to us.

Bussing of tables is always hurried there with near hovering over you to see when your finished in order to take your plate. They've started picking up our plates many
Times in the past without us being finished. NO ONE WANTS to eat from a plate where fingers have touched INDIDE THE PLATE. Very annoying & a constant problem as we frequently dine here.

1st time here. was not disappointed.
ambience, service and food selection
we’re very good. some traditional items
while others inventive.
can’t beat the meatball appetizer for
a starter to share with one other person.
conventional food like pizza was great
and no problem adding additional
ingredient to it. my inventive dish
was cavettli with pistachio pesto
and rock shrimp. all were yummy.
finishing off with a pistachio semi-
fredo. would definitely go again🌻👍

The service staff were spectacular. Loved our server. The arrival and seating staff were less than accommodating. Even with an empty restaurant and a reservation they had problems seating us. They would rather talk to each other and answer the phone.

Overall we were disappointed with the cost versus what we got out of it. The ossobuco was delicious (fennel gremolata fresh and a perfect accompaniment)and maybe worth the $42 price tag but the carbonara in a jar was not to my taste. The pancetta was Smokey and the peas had no taste at all. I do not like Smokey and the dish was not described as having that flavor. Atmosphere is fun. The service was impeccable! We never poured our own water or wine and dishes were immediately cleared. If I went again I’d stick with their wood fired pizza,salad and maybe the meatball appetizer which is huge and a meal itself.

Lots of options on the menu that looked great. We had the squid ink pasta w/lobster which wasn't as good as I thought it would be. Lamb chops were OK. Meatball pretty good. They were nice to us even though we had kids with us. Would be fun to go with a group or just a couple to sit at the bar. Very appealing decor.

Delicious authentic Italian food in a trendy place. Probably the best meatballs and pasta in Chicago. And leave some room for desserts too!

Our first time in Chicago and our first Chicago restaurant. We had a great experience with food and service. Mike was personable, attentive, gave us city tips, and made our time very enjoyable. The manager stopped by to check on our experience. We had the Bruschetta, Spaghetti, and Orecchiette. Cosi Bueno. Also really likes the decor and design. Great experience.

The food was hearty, tasty, and very plentiful. But it does not rise to the level of haute cuisine. The service was attentive and very friendly. I chose to sit outside because it was a pleasant evening and it was very noisy inside. Unfortunately, there is some kind of garbage processing company next door; very loud dump trucks were coming and going, so the noise outside was only slightly softer than outside. With tip the cost for one person was ~$100 (two courses, gnocchi and chicken). The bottom line: I enjoyed my meal and appreciated the service sufficiently that I'd go back, but this is not where I'd go with foody-friends for an intense meal with top wines.
