Perth is a long way from the northern Italian city of Siena, but at Siena’s of Leederville to the north of the CBD, they do a bang up job of replicating. Their menu is packed with Italian favourites, from authentic pizzas to pastas, risottos and their house signature parmigianas, which can be topped with the likes of mozzarella, tomatoes, eggplant or feta. You can find Siena’s on Oxford Street, right by Leederville station, perfect for those travelling out from central Perth, so book a table today and get yourself out there to enjoy a top notch Italian feed in Leederville.
Italian food in Perth might not have an area in which all the restaurants are centralised, a la Carlton in Melbourne or Leichhardt in Sydney, but the city is not lacking places to pick up a feed from the bel paese. Siena’s of Leederville are the premier outlet in, well, Leederville, and when you make the journey out to the north of Perth to pay them a visit at their location on Oxford Street, it isn’t hard to see why.
Siena’s have all the antipasti starters that we know and love: bruschetta, calamari, garlic bread, chilli prawns, mozzarella croquettes and plenty more, as well as Minestrone soup and a huge range of salads. Once you’ve had your fill there then you can move on to the star of the show: the pizza. Alongside the classics – margherita, pepperoni, vegetarian – there are more expansive and authentic options such as Calabrese, with ricotta, grilled eggplant and oregano, Jojo, with Italian sausage and leg ham and the extra special Salmone, on a tomato-free base and featuring salmon, brie, mozzarella and basil. Throw in a selection of parmigianas, an Italian gelato list and a wine list as long as your arm and you’re well on the way to a big night out in Perth. Book a table today and set a course for Oxford Street in Leederville for an Italian feast at Siena’s.

Always amazing at Sienna's me and partner always go there for our date nights as it's value for money and amazing food every time !!
Myself, my wife and three of our children went to Siena's for lunch. There is a very good range of Italian dishes at fairly reasonable prices and so quite spoilt for choice. Two of our children had the decently priced kids' meals and our third had a Hawaiian pizza - the only complaint to be had there was that the portion of spag bol wasn't large enough. Before our mains we had calamari which was very tasty. After that, my wife had eggplant parmigiana and I had the linguini firenze. The eggplant parmi was delicious and filling but the firenze was a bit disappointing in that it was far too buttery (and I like rich food but even for me it was too rich). The menu said a 'creamy pesto sauce' but I mostly tasted butter - the presence of basil was very mild (but maybe that had something to do with the region of Italy my pesto sauce came from). However, the prawns and scallops were cooked to perfection as was the linguini. The desserts and coffees ordered for afterwards went down very well as we soaked up the family atmosphere. We would go back again as our experience was generally good and there's lots to choose from on the menu. I only hope next time that our meals arrive more or less at the same time. Two of our kids had finished their meals by the time mine and my wife's arrived!
Going out with our 4 year old used to be a less than relaxing experience, as he got bored of hanging out with adults and wanted to go walkabout during the meal. Seina's has a large playroom that was constantly filled with kids, so while waiting for our food, he was off jumping around with other kids. The service was great, with plenty of waitstaff to hand and everyone anxious to please. As we are vegan, this can sometimes cause an issue with finding something suitable, but no problem here with quickly homing in on, to be honest, way more food than we needed - the portions were generous and we ended up stuffed and groaning. Basic fare but very tasty. Good work by Siena's for a pleasant night out. Glad we went early as the queue was out the door when we left at 7pm
Siena's of Leederville has always been a dependable choice for an enjoyable Italian meal. We particularly enjoyed the seafood pizza and recommend asking for chopped chilli n in oil on the side for the table. This along with parmesan cheese (also for the table) really adds to the yum factor for so many of their delicious pasta dishes.
The restaurant was busy and very noisy. The food was generally quite good for the four of us except for serving hot food on cold plates. My wife's lasagne was barely warm when she received it and cold by the time she had eaten a 1/3 so we took it home. My scaloppini masala was very disappointing with the veal being tough and tasting like it had been previously cooked and just warmed up. Again served on a cold plate. I did mention it being tough to the staff who did not hesitate to change it for me. This time the veal, although still not I would have called tender, appeared freshly cooked and started off hot but of course with the cold plate quickly cooled down. Food did come out promptly and the staff were friendly and helpful.
Outstanding food and drinks for an affordable Wednesday night special. The atmosphere is nice although my guest and I were seated in a shadowy corner. In terms of service, the food was speedily delivered however the front of house greeting is terrible (the man looks unhappy and never smiled once when we entered and when we paid despite it being a full restaurant). Furthermore, most good restaurants provide water and pepper without having to be asked. Siena's could improve on this aspect of its service. I would definitely go back for the food on a Wednesday but would warn my guests that the service is uneven. They clear your plates so fast you get the sense they want you to leave so that more people can spend money.
Siena's is neat and friendly. You've got to book ahead on Tuesdays because it gets busy. We had a decent sized table for two in the back section which has good lighting. I had gnocchi - I couldn't resist; I love it - with lots of mushrooms and walnuts. No! I couldn't finish it. Drinks and meals arrive in no time at all. It's like they cared that I was hungry. All of the staff seemed happy to be working there. Nice place.
