The Siena Trattoria is affectionately known by locals as “Masonboro’s Favorite Neighborhood Restaurant,” but you could just as easily expand that to include all of Wilmington and the surrounding areas as word of this hidden gem has spread far since their opening in 2007. Cozily nestled off of Masonboro Loop Road, the Siena Trattoria is a perfect dining choice for any occasion.

After treating your taste buds to such a delightful beginning continue your meal with one of their outstanding entrée selections like the “Pollo Siena,” a crispy chicken breast stuffed with prosciutto and fontina cheese, which is lightly pan fried before being pan roasted with spinach and sun dried tomatoes, then finished with a mushroom sherry cream sauce and served over fettuccini. Another very popular entrée is the Lasagna which is freshly made in house and baked in their brick oven. Siena Trattoria also creates tantalizing brick oven pizzas, flavorful and crisp salads, and more. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a delightful dessert like the “Crepes Siena,” a chocolate crepe filled with hazelnut cream and vanilla ice cream then laced with caramel and chocolate sauces. It is truly an outstanding finish to any meal. Perfectly pair any meal selection with a carefully chosen wine from their extensive list which contains a plethora of choices found exclusively at Siena Trattoria. They also offer a fully stocked bar with plenty of seating and a fine selection of drafts.
