We have been to Zest several times in our travels to Sienna. in 2013 and in 2015. We walked by and thought it quaint - a restaurant using the steps in an alley as part of the seating set up. Well - that just made...More

Seating is cleverly arranged on a steeply sloping side street in Siena. Service was top-notch professional, and the food was excellent, especially the grilled octopus.

Why I write my own reviews and then read what people say afterwards: we had such good service for dinner, that we came back for lunch. And that's all I will say about that! Clara (nice young lady from Napoli) served us. She had excellent...More

Tasty food and wine, but two caveats. Our waitress seemed distracted and when I accidentally said "s'il vous plais" rather than "per favore" she turned on me with anger in her eyes and was about to say something when I hastily corrected myself. Seemed a...More

Came for dinner on first night in Siena. It is on a steep side street. So if sitting outside you have to be careful. The staff are pleasant. Not very busy on a Friday night. The spaghetti vongole and the fig salad are delicious. Well...More

We had a booking inside and therefore had no problems with getting a table but we have to agree with other reviewers that it's definitely service without a smile. It was efficient to the point of clinical. That said, we thoroughly enjoyed the food.

We were just in Siena for the day to visit St. Catherine's home. One of our group was not happy with the hills and did not want to spend time traipsing around. We searched for a highly rated restaurant (by Rick Steves) but found they...More

Location and view excellent, food (sea bream) wonderful, dessert equally as good. The chef knows how to cook! Would have been nice as others have commented for a smile from our main waitress.

Food was good if unspectacular. Wine was excellent. Service was surly and without a smile. Nice to sit outside with a good view of the Duomo. Nothing wrong with this place but I'm not sure it merits the reviews it has.

The novelty of genuine 'typical' Tuscan cuisine can wear thin fairly quickly. We've had hundreds of meals in Italy. Bland, salt-free, no vegetables other than zucchini, egg plant and peppers and frankly, boring. This was one of the better ones. If you're looking for something...More
