Neighborhood: West Loop
Description: Bar Siena, the sister venue to River North's Siena Tavern, offers a slightly smaller menu inspired by expansive Italian street food such as antipasti, pasta, and pizza. Overseen by partner and Top Chef, Fabio Viviani, the menu focuses on Cicchetti style cuisine, with dishes served as they're prepared and are perfect for sharing. The two-story restaurant, spanning 8,000-square-feet, is located in the heart of restaurant row in Chicago's West Loop neighborhood. Upon entering, there is a bustling bar and on the second floor, a vibrant dining room, both connected by an arresting illuminated sculpture inspired by Siena Tavern's olive tree icon. Bar Siena is the perfect location for weekday lunch, dinner, happy hour or weekend brunch. If you're looking for something a little sweeter, stop by Bar Siena's side-concept and walk-up window, BomboBar, located on Green Street. Grab a coffee, bomboloni, gelato or hot chocolate to go!

This was our first visit but LOVE the Fulton Market area. Our new go to area for dining in the city. Great location, great vibe, and valet parking. Lively bar area on the main floor. Upstairs a nice dining area and a small area which they were hosting a private party. Everything was delicious....Burrata-MUST TRY!!!, beef tenderloin carpaccio very good but I'd choose the Burrata over this anyday. For dinner, we tried the short rib lasagna and the gnocchi. Very good, nice portions. For dessert, the bombolini....a big donut that you can infuse with your choice of filling. We tried the salted caramel, nutella and vanilla. NUTELLA!!!!

went today for lunch with the family started off with toasted mozzarella croquettes and a meatball and mozzarella calzone to share, delicious
Family ordered sweet corn ravioli spicy gnocchi, lobster sandwich and a burger, pasta's and lobster sandwich were very good with the burger being ok
dessert was a 4 pck of bamboloni (Italian hole-less doughnuts where you squirt in your own filling) salted caramel, smore, vanilla bean, raspberry, also tried a coffee caramel crisp gelato and a funfetti hot chocolate. desserts were great, service was good

finding a parking spot even at 2:00pm on a Wednesday proved to be a nightmare and a little $$$ but all in all a great meal

This was my first time here and was I ever impressed. We got the calzone, turkey club and bomballini for dessert. Everything was delicious and we all had leftovers. HUGE portions made to order too! The only drawback was parking...extremely difficult, I valeted at $16. Otherwise, it's amazing...our waitress was outstanding! Highly recommend. One more thing...the decor is pretty as well :)

We went here in a Sunday night and we were surprised with how busy it was. We were seated promptly and had good service. Our server made great recommendations. We tried the octopus per her recommendation and it was excellent! We also tried the gnocchi and lobster agnolotti. Both were rich with flavor! I would say the only ok item was the gelato dessert.
