Gently rustic Siena yields a bounty of Italian and Mediterranean flavours, perfect before a show at the nearby Stanley Theatre, or after a day of shopping or gallery-hopping.
The room, aglow in saffron, wood and burnt siena tones, bustles with a lively local crowd. This very capable kitchen produces a constantly changing selection of modern and traditional regional dishes.
On the menu: all-natural free-range meats, sustainable seafood, fresh house-made pasta, organic produce from UBC farm, a wealth of small and shared plates and well-priced wines from Italy, Spain and Southern France. The entire wine list is half-price on Monday night. Free Parking.
