Perched outside high on a hill with a lovely view, enjoying an appetizer of lightly fried squid and zucchini while sipping a great bottle of wine .... things couldn't have started off better. Unfortunately, they didn't stay that way. My husband's main dish was good, but mine was simply awful. The risotto with seafood "special" arrived with clams, squid and... More

Went here randomly, was not disappointed. After the wine and then the pasta we were truly fed. All 3 of us.(baby included). You must come and sample the food, the host and hostesses are wonderful. They speak proper Queens English, Italian and a little Portuguese. Wonderful place, please do come and enjoy

Our second visit to Siena meant that we could visit our favourite restaurant there. We were so sick of the same old tourist eateries, places whee they don't care about repeat business. Zest is not one of these places! The staff are amazing and treat even strangers like family. Food was the best we'd tasted in Italy and the menu... More

We passed this place on our sight seeing through Siena and loved the location so decided to come back for dinner. We had eaten at the #4 ranked place in Siena last night so it was logical to try the #5 ranked place! The outdoor setting is really lovely in a small, steep lane way off the main road through...

This is James the waiter who served you on this particular evening and feel rather offended by your comments . You had obviously heard me speaking to a friend/customer about our private matters which had no reflection whatsoever on my service, I always put 100% into my work regardless..I definitely was not tired and as I recall was attentive to...

You sit outside in a steep alley looking at the duomo. A very romantic place to eat! Make a reservation beforehand though! Creative but not your typical tuscan cuisine. The seafood risotto was too salty and the rest of the food was decent. Good house wine. Make sure to try the lemon tiramisu if you manage to get a reservation... More

Chosen by using tripadvisor, at the beginning it seemed great, a little off the beaten track, attentive staff and good food. It appeared once we did not order desert or cafe due to the machine being broken that we lost favor. On paying the bill, you were given the feeling you had let everyone down. Not a great way to...

We stumbled across Zest after visiting the shrine to St Catherine and weren't disappointed. The setting is great; a steepish path with great views across the city toward the Duomo, each table and chair leg cut so that you sit level. The food was very good and the service was not beaten whilst in Italy. Well worth a visit.

We stopped here after taking a walking tour of the city & Duomo. It was a refuelling stop really, but the waiter was friendly and willing to advise on the menu and the suggested pasta was superb. If we'd been in Sienna for longer would definitely given a full blown dinner a go.

The food was yummy and the atmosphere was great. Shame the staff who served us was not the most friendly (not the pregnant lady, she was great) and he gave our dish to another customer by mistake. It was not a big deal at the end of the day but he could be a bit more apologetic if I was... More

It's so good here we returned twice during our stay in Siena. Food is excellent, great choice on the menu of both meat and fish dishes. The service is great and the English waiter who served us was very helpful, knew a lot about the food and the wine. It has a lovely atmosphere and a great view when sat... More
