A stroll through Siena (Italy), the city that inspired our restaurant

Our webmaster recently visited Siena, Italy, the city that inspired our restaurant.

Here are some images from his time there.

Siena Gallery: a virtual tour

From Chef Harvey’s authentic Tuscan and Italian cuisine to owner Stan Adam’s “Tuscan farmhouse” design, Siena Ristorante Toscana continues to be inspired by Tuscany and the city for which it is named. Here are some recent images that reflect our love of Italian conviviality, food, wine, and architecture!

Founded in the mid-nineteenth century, the family-owned and operated Marcarini estate in La Morra township is highly regarded as one of the benchmarks in the production of Piedmontese wines.

When other Piedmont families shifted to more flashy “modern-style” expressions of Barolo in the 1990s, the Marcarini family remained true to its roots, favoring large Slavonian cask aging over French (small format) barrique — the fad that challenged traditional winemaking during that decade.

Today, wine critics and wine lovers increasingly favor the “traditional” style that Marcarini has always embraced.

We are thrilled that Manuel Marcarini — owner and winemaker — will be joining us on Tuesday, November 18 for a “not-to-miss” dinner.

Click here for Chef Harvey’s extraordinary menu, including his pairing for the Marcarini Barolo, “the wine of kings and the king of wines.”

Marcarini Barolo Dinner November 18

We are pleased to announce that Piedmontese winemaker and Barolo producer Manuel Marcarini will be joining us on Tuesday, November 18 for a dinner in his honor.

Stay tuned for more details about Manuel and his extraordinary wines.

But in the meantime, Chef Harvey has already made his menu available (see below, vintages subject to change).

This is a NOT-TO-MISS event at Siena!

It has been a great year here at Siena. Not only did USA TODAY name us one of the top ten Italian restaurants in Austin, but we’ve been receiving wonderful reviews from guests on many different websites.

Here’s what a TripAdvisor user had to say about a recent dinner at Siena:

“Impressive Italian in a stunning setting!”
5 of 5 stars
Reviewed October 10, 2014

Siena — a beautiful room with spectacular food and outstanding service. Great cocktails and a creative approach to wine (fun events, get on their mailing list!) transform Siena from fine dining to “local” fine dining. Lunch is great value — dinner is always special but not too formal — you can have fun here too! The building has its own story — great ambiance and worth the drive from downtown.

Honestly, one of my favorites in Austin. I am loathe to share it!

Thank you, Austin, for making us your favorite authentic Italian destination!
