Zest Ristorante - Great meal, Great service, A jewel in Siena!

We stayed in Siena for three days and my family and I ate at many places and the best and we agreed the best was Zest Ristorante Wine bar & cafe. The restaurant is situated in a quiet street. We found it during our 1st day of exploring the city. We had a wonderful lunch (we sat outside) and... read more

My wife and I had dinner at Zest this evening. Elody, our server, was by far one of the best waitresses I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. She was engaging, funny, and very sweet. The appetizers were fresh and delicious. The entree was decent, but the Chef's personal take on Tiramisu was both delicious and revolutionary. I would highly... More

I have to say, that I just read some of the 'unsatisfactory' reviews and I am utterly shocked. I ate here in August of 2013. The meal was so unbelievable that we returned the next night for dinner. In fact, we met another couple of ladies who were on the same wine tour as us and they too had a... More

The food was excellent with a contemporary Italian theme and service just top notch. From atmosphere to all the little touches, everything was just amazing. Particularly loved the white chocolate and coffee brulee. Thank you for making our anniversary so memorable, we will definitely recommend.

I am sitting in Zest as I write this review. This is the second visit in 4 days and two of them we were in Venice. ZEST and Siena was the ultimate Tuscany experience. Thank you Shirley and Domenicus for an AWESOME dining experience!!!!

We visited there at the end of February and tried three dishes (one antipasti and two different pasta dishes) for lunch. All of them were delicious and served at the surprisingly perfect temperature. In partuclar I cannot forget their pici dish, which I believe was one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had in my life. The restaurant... More

Had lunch here and were enchanted with lovely owner Shirley. Divided into 2 levels, we sat on the top level to dine. We chose the 20 euro deal (a primo and a secondo) which turned out t be a great deal. Quality, preparation and balance of the dishes lived up to expectations.

We spent two months in Siena attending an Italian language school and this experience gave us the opportunity to visit many of the best restaurants in this beautiful city. Without question, Zest is at the top of our list of favorites (and this is the only review I will write of a restaurant in Siena). Whatever superlative you can think... More

It was September when we visited Zest and has taken a while to get around to writing a review but feel that it deserves full marks. Perched on a steep street with a view of the duomo to die for,especially as the sun was going down, we were treated to awesome food, starting with an antipasto for the two of... More
