Best seafood in Austin, Texas

Chef Harvey perfected his skills with seafood many years ago while living and working in Tuscany at one of Italy’s top destinations for fine food.

“When people think of authentic Tuscan cuisine,” says Chef Harvey, “it’s only natural that they think of Chianina steaks and porcini mushrooms and pappardelle with wild boar ragù. But they forget that Tuscany has an amazing coastline and the seafood, from Livorno to Grosseto, is fantastic.”

Wine of the Week: Orvieto Classico by Ruffino

Above: The cool breeze off of Lake Trasimeno in Umbria allows winemakers to craft fresh, clean, bright wines, like the 2010 Orvieto Classico, featured by the glass at Siena.

Here at Siena, we love Italian cuisine and Tuscan cuisine in particular. And we also love Italian wine.

Although our list features some of the greatest wines from Tuscany — a region known more for its red wines than its whites — we also look to other regions for some of the great labels we proudly serve at the restaurant, like the 2010 Orvieto Classico by Ruffino.
