“One of the best places in Austin for steaks.”

Even though Siena is widely known for Chef Harvey’s critically acclaimed authentic Italian cooking, many of our guests also call the restaurant “one of the best places in Austin for steaks.”

And there’s a good reason for that.

Even though Chef Harvey studied Italian cooking in Piedmont in northern Italy, his first job in the country was in one of Tuscany’s most famous restaurants, Il Pino, where grilled house-aged meats were amongthe kitchen’s specialities.

Tuscans eat more steak and chops than in any other region of Italy and that’s because they raise the country’s best cattle there.

You can take the boy out of Tuscany but you can’t take the Tuscany out of the boy!

Osso buco, an Italian winter classic (NOW AVAILABLE at Siena!)

Please call (512) 349-7667 to reserve your table now!

It’s one of northern Italy’s most celebrated winter dishes: osso buco (literally, the center of the bone).

To create this iconic recipe, Chef Harvey and his kitchen staff slowly braise a beef shank in tomato, stock, and wine for hours and hours until the rich marrow in the bone’s center becomes liquid. They then serve the shank atop creamy slow-cooked polenta that’s been made even more flavorful with freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano and clarified butter.

Can you think of a better cold weather dish?

Chef Harvey has put it on the menu for a limited time at Siena. Come get it while the dish is hot and the weather is cold!
