Brothers Anthony and Chris Tarro own all three restaurants in the Siena Restaurant Group.

Located in the heart of Providence’s Federal Hill, Siena Restaurant was opened in 2005 and features authentic Tuscan cuisine in a warm and lively atmosphere. While the brothers were raised in Warwick, R.I., their family has deep roots in the Italian-American community on Federal Hill making it the perfect location for their first restaurant.

Siena Cucina · Enoteca opened in 2007 just a few miles from where they grew up in East Greenwich. Siena Cucina · Enoteca compliments the trusted menu from the original Siena Restaurant, with many of the warm touches and great food found in kitchens and wine bars all over Italy.

The third Siena restaurant, Tavola da Siena located in Smithfield, opened in 2013.  Stepping into Tavola da Siena feels like being transported to an upscale Tuscan farmhouse with the same great menu and warmth of service.
