After first tried two other Osterias (which are very high in Tripadvisor's ranking) we tried Zest and we were amazed. We are 4 people, 2 adult and 2 children, but every single dish we tried was wonderfull and tasted delicious. It was so good that we went there 3 days in a row. The staff was also extremely friendly.

My friend and I came to eat at Zest after a long day of traveling. Our server, Nancy was welcoming and very kind. She recommended a great place for gelato and to check out the festivities at the piazza del campo. We really appreciated all her help and useful tips for enjoying Siena. The food was delicious! I got a... More

Zest is perfect in every way; in fact we enjoyed dinner there 3 of the 4 nights we stayed in Siena. (and wished it would have been 4 of 4) The location and ambiance can not be surpassed - on a sloping, narrow street with a unsurpassed view of the Duomo. The young woman who was our server was the...

Just came back from dinner here with my sister. I'll start off by saying the food was good, we had good calamari and i had a good steak. The tiramisu was excellent. But the service was dreadful! Everyone around us was getting served politely but we got really bad attitude from the two women working. When we wanted dessert we... More

It was disappointing to read your review as we try hard to ensure the staff work efficiently and provide the best service possible on every occasion. They have been informed of this incident and reprimanded, though neither seem to recall who you were. I apologize that this incident ruined what could have been a lovely dinner. I agree that it...

Ignore the naff name - this restaurant does really delicious food away from the tourist drag on a scenic side street with outside tables.

Favorite meal I had during a 3 week tour of Italy. We arrived just as the sun was setting and got an outdoor table with a view of Il Duomo. The tables are set on a steep street where there is no possibility of the table in front of you blocking your view. The view alone as the sunlight dimmed... More

I was in Siena for a week and tried this restaurant towards the end of my stay, which was unfortunate because it meant that I only had time for one more dinner at this delightful stop. If I had known about it sooner, I might have had all my meals there. Great food, prepared with care. The service was friendly... More

After 6 weeks travelling around France and Italy this was the only restaurant that we ate at twice because the wine, food and service was absolutely perfect. As outside seating is limited make sure you make a reservation. You won't be disappointed.

Great food and a modern take on Tuscan cooking. The indoor dining area looked great, but since we were there in the summer, we sat outside. Great people watching to go with the excellent food.
