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!

We had our son and new daughter in law's wedding rehearsal dinner for 40 on the patio. David met with me to plan the menu and choose the wines.  It was just the personal touch I was craving after looking into private rooms in hotels and huge restaurants in downtown San Jose. 

Our food was excellent as was the service!  And David's personal mingling with our guests made them all feel very much at home and welcome. 

Thank you, David, and also Christine!
