Review: Siena

By BILL RODRIGUEZ  |  January 31, 2012

For the main dish, there was pan-seared branzino ($26) as well as grilled salmon ($19), and a 16-ounce veal chop ($29) as well as Chianti-marinated sirloin ($27). But we chose a special, the pollo al diavolo ($18), our tastebuds perhaps piqued by the prior penne. The two small grilled chicken breasts were semi-boneless, rubbed with herbs and red pepper, then finished in the oven with olive oil, white wine, and more herbs. Very good choice.

We barely had room for tiramisu and warm pumpkin spice cake (each $7), the first supposedly accented with amaretto, though not enough for us to detect. But the second was topped with cinnamon gelato, an excellent complement. We returned to forgetting that we weren't in Tuscany.
