Dinner with mom. Everything was great, pasta, drinks, etc. The only thing that wasn’t that good was the bread. I’d gladly pay for Acme or Semi freddis with my meal . But that’s a minor detail, I loved it and will definitely be coming back to try other entrees
It was a expected day off of work and my husband and I decided to take advantage of a kid-free day. We went here for lunch on a weekday. It is a nice, quiet restaurant that had indoor and outdoor seating. The weather was perfect for outdoor seating however, we decided to sit indoor by the window (looking out to the bay). We were able to get a reservation on OpenTable and arrived right as the open. There was already a line out the door so fortunately we had a reservation.
Our sample appetizer plate arrived less than hot but was good. They have a bread & olive oil (with onions,garlic?) dipping that was delicious. Our entrees were delicious well.
Lunch was a bit pricey but fir the ambience and good food/service, I would recommend
Our first time at Bella Siena,
Such a treasure. The atmosphere had a great vibe, and the food was amazing.
I told our waitress it was my wife and I’s anniversary, and she went out of her way to make us feel important and valued. We will for SURE be back.
The food is always good and the service is even better!
This was our first indoor dining experience in a year. It did not disappoint. It was a gorgeous day and the views spectacular. the lunch special that day, lobster ravioli, in a cream sauce was delicious. We had crème Brule for dessert and it was delicious as well. I was looking for a wonderful dining experience that day, as it was my 70th birthday, and this fit the bill
Lovely spot! Really enjoyed dinner and waitress was so attentive -even though she had allot of tables!
Loved the location, the view and the food!! Service was good
Service was great! Hannah was a wonderful server. I do wish that we could have had a nicer table with a view since I told them we were celebrating our 10 year anniversary, but we were out towards the back of the outdoor courtyard. The pesto gnocchi was AMAZING, and the bar tender made me a great pregnancy friendly mocktail. We will be back!
The service any food was outstanding. Outside seating was nice.
Outstanding menu and service. The ambiance in the garden has an european vibe, highly recommend this place.
Came here on a Saturday afternoon and sat outside. Beautiful ambience, with views of the water. The inside of the restaurant looks very nice as well. Our server was really friendly and prompt. Food was okay. I had the spaghetti bolognese but substituted the spaghetti for parpadelle..... sauce was just okay. My son had the kids pasta marinara and he didn't like it much.
Every visit has been excellent. The food and service are outstanding.
Best restaurant in Benicia in my opinion. This quaint little town by the bay has so much potential and so few good restaurants. Bella Siena clearly recognized the potential and created a little jewel that is now fairly difficult to get a reservation at times.
Love the setting and the service. The only reason not five stars for the food is that a couple times now the pasta dish could have used more seasoning. My guest commented the same. There's no salt or pepper on the table to do your own doctoring up. I realize the Chef works hard on these dishes and doesn't expect them to need more salt, but it could have used it. Also, I know everyone has different likes and dislikes, so still give four stars.
Always a pleasure to dine at Bella. They never disappoint us.
I took a dear friend for dinner for her 70th birthday. I said on Open Table when I made the reservation that it was a birthday, and also informed the hostess who said she would tell our server. When we ordered dessert there was no indication that we were celebrating anything.
The food was terrible!
The portabella mushroom appetizer was overwhelmed with balsamic making it too sweet.
My friends mushroom ravioli were just okay.
My frutti di mare linguini had no flavor and few clams or mussels.
The desserts were decent but again, no mention of a birthday celebration.
The server, when he asked if we would like something to drink, brought my friends glass of wine with my cocktail even though she specifically said she would have it with her meal.
All empty plates and glasses were left on the table throughout the entire meal.
After our dessert, we waited, and waited and finally flagged down another person so that we could get our check, pay, and leave.
The noise level and acoustics in this restaurant are horrible making the dining experience dry unpleasant with music blaring to make it even worse.
I will not return to this restaurant and I am a local.
The food is consistently delicious! Never feel pressured to leave! Beautiful setting! Benicia’s best!
Professional. Beautiful and well thought dining space. Lovely and accommodating service. Can’t miss food!!! Try the cabbage salad (warm)! Carpaccio rivals any. Amazing and perfectly prepared filet. 100% delicious.
The food is delicious and the service was outstanding.
Great place to enjoy dinner, amazing presentation and great service!
Location is great. Views from inside the restaurant are spectacular. We ate outside and it was pleasant although the view was not as good.
The food was a disappointment. Dipping sauce for the bread had red onion in it that overpowered everything else in it. Couldn’t eat it. The bruschetta had much too much garlic, we all agreed. The kitchen does not have a very sophisticated hand at seasoning. Too much is not better!
My husband and I ordered the price fixe lunch. He had the Caesar salad, which was good. I had the mixed green salad that said it had baby greens and tomatoes. There was one tomato. Balsamic vinaigrette was too sweet. Needed some acid.
We both had the spaghetti bolognese as our entrees. It was very odd seasoning. Sweet and apparently some red pepper in there, as it was somewhat spicy. Very little pasta and way too much sauce. We don’t know if the cuisine is supposed to be an Italian/Mexican mix, or what. Maybe we were expecting the wrong type food.
Our friends both had the daily special which was lobster ravioli with prawns and some kind of sauce. Both said it was “underwhelming” and they had eaten here before and liked the food, so maybe we will give it another try in the future.
Had lunch and was very satisfied with the service and quality of the food.
Foods is really good !
We love the food and experience! 2nd time in 4 weeks
Great place to eat!!
Excellent service and elegant.
The food and service was beyond amazing! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for some good Italian food.
Great ambience, amazing food and friendly service from the entire staff. Always a go to for our family. The Lilly's
Food was amazing, desert was amazing, and our server was great we will definitely be going back.
Outdoor dining at its finest! Always excellent!
It was amazing! Very friendly staff & the waiter was super respectful and very courteous.
Surprised by how great this place was , first time here and will definitely be back!
Great place. Food selections are plentiful. Food tastes great. Services very attentive and friendly. Very nice bar. Beautiful water view. Highly recommend Bella Siena to everyone.
Great service and food. A go to when I’m in Benicia.
The food was delicious and the setting was nice. I liked the mussels appetizer and the skirt steak. The service was okay, though the server was somewhat abrupt during our interactions. No one checked in with us about our meal after the food was served.
Considering the restaurant offers indoor seating during the pandemic, I anticipated there would be more space between tables. The main dining room felt crowded. It appeared that every table was filled at times, thought it did look like some of the seating was removed. Still, the remaining seating was concentrated and not spread out much. If you have concerns about indoor dining during Covid, I would not recommend this venue.
Took my big sister out for her birthday. It was the most amazing place and the food was BOMB! Definitely can’t wait to go back. The service was great as well.... Definitely a must for those who have never been!!!
The napa cabbage salad, which sounded really good, was underwhelming! I had a small taste of my pal’s caesar salad and it was okay. The cooked veggie side dish (ihnstead of potatoes) was very good, the skirt steak was pretty good and the dessert—fruit crisp with ice cream was yummy. The served, Emily, was just lovely!!!
The servers were very professional and courteous- even accommodating us indoors when our original reservation was made when only outdoor seating was available. Our waitress was lovely (can't recall her name) and was very sweet and apologetic when she accidentally put in the wrong dessert order for us- we ate it anyway and didn't mind one bit. The well wishes on our anniversary were also very nice! Bella Siena is a great place to celebrate special occasions.
It was so nice to be out and about again. Enjoyed a beautiful dinner by the Benicia bay with my boyfriend. Our waiter (unfortunately don't remember his name) was outstanding. Very attentive, great attitude and all around wonderful customer service. Cannot wait to go again!
We loved the design inside, but opted for outdoor seating, which was also lovely. Our server, Anthony was excellent. He was helpful and friendly and his recommendations were spot on. The food was great, and we look forward to to coming back again.
Food was great, service was good, and the atmosphere was perfect! Will definitely be back again! Only complaint I had is our server was a little pushy and when asking if we were finished with our plates, already had them in her hand.
