Siena Italian Authentic Trattoria and Deli Summerlin Las Vegas
Village Square, 9500 W Sahara Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89117
Friends in Summerlin constantly share stories of the best restaurants in Summerlin. We hike and they name all the restaurants they eat at. All those restaurant reviews included Siena – The name for the Italian restaurant continues to come up in conversation for their dishes. From the drivers of the Cadillac car clubs that meet at Village Center to City Hall spokespeople who walk the trails of Red Rock outside Charleston on the weekends, everyone including the Las Vegas fire fighters state, “Siena Italian Trattoria has the best pizza. Their pasta sauces have the most flavor. Siena makes their own pasta – Homemade pasta. Siena has a deli next to the restaurant.” Christmas Eve after a long day starting in the early morning, we found ourselves near Rabbi Wyne’s synagogue to give him a Hanukkah present, and directly across the street was the famous Siena restaurant we have heard about for months. So we literally walked over, which is great about Summerlin, it is one of the few communities in Las Vegas where people can actually walk from the library to the restaurant, from the deli to the grocery store. The most unique restaurant with a terrific wine menu, Siena’s deli has smoked meats, grilled meat cutlets breaded, pasta salads, gelato ice creams, fresh baked breads, Italian cookies. The restaurant served up seafood linguine homemade with a white cheese Alfredo sauce combined with steamed lobster, scallops, abalone, clams and grilled shrimp with shaved green onion that added such a nice touch to the white dish as well as taste. Honestly the texture of the linguine was perfect. The chef did a great job. The service was also extraordinary. Many people waited on us. Our table constantly had fresh olive sauces for dipping with new loaves of baked bread brought to our table. After hearing so much about the pastas from friends, we also ordered the hand stuffed rigatoni. Rigatoni rolls stuffed with shrimp and mushrooms into the pasta rolls. The light golden sauce reminded me to the tomato cream for Penne a la Vodka, but had brandy added which tasted different from other tomato sauces.
