Tasty food and helpful staff

My wife and I stumbled upon this place looking for somewhere for lunch. The French waitress was exceptionally helpful and kind to my wife, who had a dietary request, and the food that arrived was vibrant and tasty - a step up from many of the places we've eaten in over the past couple of weeks.

We went here for lunch after wondering around Siena. The terrace looked very nice on the steep narrow street. If I knew how good reviews this restaurant gets I would have ordered 3 courses but we got only pasta, wine and coffee. The homemade ravioli Caprese my husband had was absolutely delicious but my seafood pasta was tasteless and I... More

Zest is an exceptional romantic and good food restaurant. It is not easy to find but we somehow were guided towards this gem in a backstreet of Siena. Owner is very attentive, food is excellent, service is great and the view is amazing. Be there around 19:00 and pick the rear view table. Order the carpacio tonno for starters and... More

We looked at the reviews and booked in advance but it was probably the least satisfactory meal we had in our two weeks for a number of reasons. The inside seating area is relatively small then there are a number of seats outside - however, as it's a steep and narrow street, these aren't in a courtyard but come out... More

We went here based on reviews on Trip Advisor - a great find! We enjoyed our meal - antipasti was good (meat and cheese plate) & I had a pork dish and my husband had steak. It's hidden away and not a 'touristy' spot which was nice. We ate outside - our tables on the hill outside of the restaurant.... More

Zest has a great location, nestled on a hill in the middle of Siena. We ate here several times during our stay as the wait staff were amazing and everything we ate was delicious. They accommodated our large group.

We sat outside on their little terrace on a rather steep, cobbled street. The waiter was very friendly, if a little slow. Lovely food and perfect for a lunch stop. Nice to be off the beaten track a little.

An excellent dinner with my wife and youngest daughter of 16. The service was impeccable, we were allowed to taste the wine, and the red was cooled down before serving on a very hot day. The tagliata and the controfilletto were both absolutely top class, the former With a wonderful taste of charcoal grill mixed With fresh rucola and Cherry... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident and without reading any reviews. It looked nice and made a good first impression. We asked the English speaking floormanager if we could have dinner outside, but it was busy and we had no reservation. Therefore we made a reservation for the next day. No promises were made as whether we could sit... More
