ROOTED IN ITALY. RAISED IN CHICAGO.
The 10,000 square foot space’s décor reflects a hybrid of a rustic Italian market, fine dining restaurants, and a modern, industrial tavern, bridging old world comfort and hospitality with a contemporary menu and design. The bustling 200-person dining room and spacious bar landscape blends perfectly with Chicago’s energetic River North dining & nightlife scene. The notable wine collection and extensive hand-crafted cocktails compliment the from-scratch menu, created by Top Chef and DineAmic Hospitality Partner Fabio Viviani. Named “one of the most talented Chefs in the world” by Forbes, one should anticipate continuous smells of truffle, homemade Italian cuisine, and a dining experience you will never forget. Open 7 days a week, Siena Tavern offers a full lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch menu in addition to a skilled team dedicated to catering & private events.
You're In Good Hands
When restaurant and DineAmic Hospitality owners Lucas Stoioff and David Rekhson first created Siena Tavern, much of their inspiration came from a quaint, casual and energetic bar and restaurant called La Taverna in Siena, Italy. The inspiration led to a more polished and expansive version suited for River North known in Chicago as Siena Tavern. Bringing the sophistication and charisma of Chef Fabio Viviani’s cuisine as well as the energy of a bustling bar to the epicenter of Chicago’s River North dining scene, the pair created an Italian restaurant that combines the rustic attitude of Italian culture with a level of refinement, quality, and industrial edginess that appeals to the River North area. Whether dining in the Oval Bar, Crudo & Pizza Bar, Private Cellar, or Main Dining Room, the level of service and quality of food promises an exceptional experience.
