Romantically Delicious

Zest is certainly worth wondering through a few obscure streets to find. Tiered seating along a steep street catches a glimpse of the beautifully lit duomo but you'll likely get lost in your food and your date because this is a fantastic place to enjoy both.

Located on a hill overlooking a charming street. Indoor or outdoor seating. Food lovely! A great choice for lunch and located close to the edge of the town so near public parking.

We ate here on 2 occassions dinner and lunch. Great pastas and the wine list also very good. Fresh, tasty and worth reserving online to get a table outside.

My partner and I came to Zest last night during our trip to Tuscany. We often go to the restaurant at home in Paris, and both agree to say this has been our best Italian Restaurant so far, and beats most restaurants we've been to at home! The Menu offers Italian Classics, with a modern twist. Good balance of meat... More

Great food, service is kind and smooth! Large choice and the must: you can get gluten free pasta! I took a tagliata: the meat was great! The zucchini are grilled perfectly. This restaurant is a must in Sienna!

After walking around Siena, this was the perfect stop! We all agreed it was the best food we have eaten in tuscany and the waiters were lovely and even managed to teach us some Italian. This is a perfect place to take a break from walking around a lovely city :)

My husband and me were in Siena for 1 day, so we found this restaurant to eat supper through trip advisor. And we didn't regret! We ordered grilled beef and it bet all expectations.

Two lunches here during the August Palio provided good food and interesting wines. Two excellent pasta dishes one day (pici with a wild boar ragu and orichetti with broccoli/pea puree) and a well cooked leek and gorgonzola tart the other. Informal, friendly service; plenty of wines by the glass; and a very good spot for rest and relaxation from all... More
