This is an excellent owner-operated restaurant with first-rate food. Excellent home-made pasta. The chicken with marsala wine sauce was the best I have ever had. All ingredients were fresh and well presented. Contemporary atmosphere with an excellent balance of old and new.

Down a little side street away from the main square sits this great little place. There was no space outside when we arrived so we had a drink and waited - it worth it for the lovely view of Siena. And the food made it even better! A lovely antipasti selection followed by beautiful pasta dishes enjoyed in a great,... More

The setting is great in a steep cobbled street with no traffic. I had a fantastic tomato and mozzarella salad and she had a leek and cheese tart, both amazing. Followed by carbonara and a pasta dish with proscuitto in tomato sauce, just perfect. I really recommend this beautiful place for a romantic lunch or dinner

Dear Carla, the way your review is written immediately calls for suspiscion. Firstly, no one waits an hour for their meal, regardless of how many people are dining, food does not go to the tables cold as we have a small kitchen and can only plate up one table at a time which leaves the kitchen immediately so we can...

Excellent menu, featuring Tuscan cuisine with good wines. Pasta, meat and dessert were delicious. Staff did a great effort to find a place outside as all tables were busy when we arrived. We really appreciate it !

Excellent menu, featuring Tuscan cuisine with a slight California touch. We had delicious pea pesto over pasta, in a colorfully-plated serving. Bench seating outdoors with view of the Duomo off in the distance. Locals consider this not really authentic Sienese or Tuscan cuisine, but the food is nonetheless well prepared.

Ate at Zest both nights I was in Siena. Came back the second night because not only was the food delicious, my server Nancy was so friendly and accomodating. Try the delicious leek tart with cheese (gorgonzola, I think) and carmelized onions with a side of pesto, so good that I almost wished I had ordered 2 instead of moving... More

Great place off the beaten track, with good selection of wines per glass, not per bottle. Part of the staff comes from UK, a real relief to hear pure London accent in the middle of Italy.
