Why is Our Angry Pasta So Angry? (And Delicious too!)

Why is Our Angry Pasta So Angry? (And Delicious too!) | Siena Bistro

One of our most popular items is our Angry "Arrabiatta" Pasta that features Cavatappi pasta, Italian sausage, wild mushrooms and a spicy tomato sauce. 

Many of our customers appreciate it for its unique flavor profile and the preparation and presentation that our Chef/Owner David Wiesner brings to the dish. 

If you’re not familiar with this iconic entrée (available for both lunch and dinner) here is a little information about our Angry Pasta: 

Arrabbiata sauce, or sugo all'arrabbiata in Italian, is a spicy sauce for pasta made from garlic, tomatoes, and dried red chili peppers cooked in olive oil. The sauce originates from the Lazio region, around Rome.

Arrabbiata literally means "angry" in Italian; the name of the sauce refers to the spiciness of the chili peppers. 

Arrabbiata sauce is usually served with penne pasta. The dish has been celebrated several times in Italian movies, notably in Marco Ferreri's La Grande Bouffe and Federico Fellini's Roma.

Client's Review

Our customers aren't afraid to tell the world that we've done a great job!

I had been wanting to go to Siena Bistro for a while but somehow never found the right occasion. My husband arranged a surprise birthday party for me at this place with a couple of our friends. It was a lovely evening, spent with awesome people and the food was definitely great. They had a good wine selection.

I had the Duck with Mushroom Ragout which was delicious. The duck was cooked well and melted in the mouth. The pasta complimented the duck very well. There was a variety of dishes ordered by us ranging from lamb, sole to salads.

Everything was delicious and very well prepared.
