Italian food proverbs: “One never ages at the dinner table.”

Above: Chef Harvey Harris, Texas-born and Italian-trained, and a lover of all things Italia!

Here at Siena Ristorante Toscana we don’t just love Italian food: We live Italian food!

That’s one of the reasons why we love Italian food and wine proverbs so much.

One of our favorites is a tavola non s’invecchia mai. In other words, one never ages at the dinner table.

Our Italian table at Siena is a place where people of all ages and from all walks of life come together around great food and wine. And when it comes to sharing a great meal, we are all young at heart. A tavola non s’invecchia mai…

Brunellos di Montalcino? We’ve got ’em!

Above: Sangiovese grapes grown in Montalcino for Brunello di Montalcino. Brunello is made from 100 percent Sangiovese grapes.

If you’re into Italian wine, you’ve probably been checking out wine writer Bruce Sanderson’s Brunello “Recommended Brunellos di Montalcino” in the current (June) issue of Wine Spectator.

His top picks are available only to subscribers but you can view his entire tasting report on the 2012 vintage here (even if you don’t subscribe).

Here at Siena Ristorante Toscana, it’s only natural that we love Brunello di Montalcino, one of Tuscany’s greatest and most age-worthy wines.

If you’re looking for a great Brunello, we’ve got ’em!

Just ask wine director Rina to suggest her favorites.

Did you know that Siena won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence last year?

Rina is constantly working to bring you the best in Italian wine today.

Best bolognese I have ever had. Their fresh pasta is amazing. The restaurant is really cozy, nicely appointed and has fireplaces.

One of the best hidden restaurants in Austin… very quiet setting and quality food and overall one of the best kept secrets in Austin. 5 stars!

Siena always offers the best Italian cuisine, the pictures only share so much; the taste is beyond imagination. Upon hearing it was out anniversary, our server Greg offered the most romantic, balcony seating and made accommodations without hesitation. Absolutely, pleased with the service as much as the delicious food.

Italian proverbs: When the wine is good, the table needs to be long!

People really seem to be enjoying our series of posts on Italian proverbs about wine.

Here’s another favorite:

Vino buono, tavola lunga.

In other words, when the wine is good, you need a long table.
