Fabio Viviani's Bar Siena is already taking online reservations, as the West Loop eatery's set to open on July 25. It's DineAmic Group's follow-up to Siena Tavern, which opened in 2013.

The new space is two stories, taking up 8,000-square-feet on the northwest corner of Randolph and Green streets (832 W. Randolph). The dining room will occupy the second floor, while the ground level houses the bar and some casual seating.

Expect plenty of small plates and a pizza bar, as DineAmic representatives say the menu will regularly rotate to reflect different regions of Italy. It's not all street food, as for heartier appetites there's a dry-aged ribeye and a seared wild salmon. There's also a Fireball pizza, which is their twist on pepperoni pizza with roasted tomato and house mozzarella.

The restaurant will also feature a quick-service window where customers can order gelato, pastries and other desserts. They're calling that concept the BomboBar.

Regular hours beginning July 25: Monday through Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 2 a.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 a.m.; and Sunday 10 a.m. to 2 a.m.
