The room, simply furnished and aglow in saffron and burnt siena tones, bustles with a lively local crowd. This very capable kitchen produces a constantly changing selections of modern and traditional regional dishes. On the menu: all-natural free-range meats, sustainable seafood, fresh house-made pasta, a wealth of small and shared plates and well-priced wines from Italy, Spain and Southern France. The entire wine list if half-price on Monday night. Free Parking.
“A sunny canvass for of a blend of Italian and Spanish tastes in a fun, casual setting, and with an approachable wine list to match.
Lusty, rustic, bare tabled and boisterous. It also brings some much needed Italian and Spanish tastes to the area. Siena seduces South Granville.” | TIM PAWSEY – THE HIRED BELLY / VANCOUVER COURIER
“Perfect before a show at the nearby Stanley Industrial Alliance Stage.” | WHERE MAGAZINE
“Just stepping into the place, I liked Siena. … it was warm and inviting – a good start for a neighbourhood restaurant. My heart skipped a beat when I saw simple but attractive, comfort-style dishes marching out of the kitchen. | MIA STAINSBY – VANCOUVER SUN
“The most inviting South Granville restaurant to open in a long time.” | VANCOUVER MAGAZINE
