Siena; not just a color

Last week, my lunchtime plans included dining with my friend at Siena Ristorante, 519 Summer Street. If you are in the mood for Italian, this would be a good choice. They boast of a authentic Tuscan menu, and there were certainly many items to choose from. Not wanting to eat a lot, I ordered a super fresh tomato, sliced with avocado (in between each slice) and topped with fresh crabmeat. So delicious. So fresh. My friend ordered the monkfish with sauteed spinach. Equally yummy. The indoor decor was beautiful too; I loved the way the ceiling was painted with fluffy white clouds. It felt like we were dining outside! The waiters were great, and the service staff were friendly and attentive to our every need. Colorful- a very attractive place: would love to return sometime soon to try the dinner/dessert menu...
