Signature Dish: Siena

BY Ryan Davis


One of Wilmingtons tastiest trattorias Siena (3315 Masonboro Loop Road 910-794-3002) offers an array of Italian cuisine everything from fresh local seafood homemade pastas and salads to hand-tossed pizza. Executive chef Steve Hotz says Sienas Pollo Calabria has quickly become a clientele favorite. A deboned half chicken marinated in olive oil and rosemary is pan seared and oven roasted in its own stock. Served with sauted spinach and accompanied by an unrivaled butternut squash caponata Pollo Calabria is Siena at its best.
