Good as it looks

We chose this venue because of the setting and the outlook to the Bascilica from it. The food was much better than we expected, in fact probably the best we have bought in Italy. The woman who served us was attentive without being overbearing. The flavours of the food were sensational. My wife who... read more

Went here to have dinner on my birthday. The food, service and overall atmosphere was absolutely fantastic and of high value. Zest has a great collection of local wines. The grilled beef was perfect, and so were the desserts (tried Panna Cotta and Tiramisu). Kudos also for the choice of music: Paolo Conte.

Zest was recommended to us by another restaurant we had eaten at the previous night and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent, with the wait staff being attentive to our needs and informative about the different aspects of the menu. There was a good range of options on the menu for all the courses, especially dessert. Being gluten... More

The Best meal in Italy so far, the waitress was very friendly and helpful. I can still taste the coffee creme brûlée. We will return.

We had the daily special: fillet with pecorino black pepper sauce and potatoes for 18euros. Delicious and a great deal! Wine was excellent too and so were the desserts. We would definitely come back!

We ate here 2 times. First time for lunch, the next day dinner. They had an exciting menu and the food was very good and fresh. We tried the light fried squid and caprese salad for antipasti, pici pasta and gnocchi, and roastbeef salad and a beef dish. They were all really great. The waitress we got was very nice... More

Just left after dinner and I have to say that all those reviewers I read before going to the restaurant were right. The food is excellent. The atmosphere and service was wonderful. It is a place where you can relax to candle light in a romantic setting and have a nice dinner with the kids. The service was family friendly... More

Nice and modern place with authentic and very friendly service and real quality food. The wine recommended by the waitress was very good, we had a 2010 Rosso di Montalcino. Generous portions and well made food. Will go back again if in Siena. Only thing I found a bit strange for a wine bar (or for a restaurant) is that... More

Beautiful food, tastes were perfectly put together even my daughter who can be really fussy due to her age, appreciated the freshness and flavours. Service was incredible, the lovely lady helped us in so many ways that we could have and probably should have given her even more than the generous tip we left.
