Great meal and good value in Siena. Off on a backstreet in historic district. Food was fresh and tasty. Great pasta! Very good service.

After a few months past i visited Siena again and there i found a new star which i can add to my Restaurant heaven: The Zest is a small but fine restaurant, which is looking very nice and classy. You have either the possibility to sit outside if the weather plays nice or to sit inside and enjoying the zest... More

We stumbled upon Zest, which was near our hotel, after having been in Italy a week and desperately needing some green vegetables to balance out all the pasta and pizza. We looked at menu after menu until we came to Zest where we found multiple salads and some veggie-heavy pastas. Sure enough - the arugula salad and the greek salad... More

Love Zest...everything was fresh and beautifully presented. I had the onion tarte and it was such a refreshing change from the three Ps (pizza, pasta, panini). Salads were great and everyone in the party enjoyed their meal. Be sure to top yours off with a little chocolate number for dessert - fabulous!

We really enjoyed Zest. We got to sit outside in the street which was great for atmosphere! The staff were great ( she did forget our wine, but these things happen when busy!) food was fresh and tasty. Would come back again.

We were lucky enough to spend our first evening in Siena in this gorgeous little place. The food was amazing, we had the home-made ravioli, the caprese salad (delectable buffalo mozzarella and the best olive oil I've ever tasted), gluten free penne with wild boar and thyme, the grilled beef served on rucola and the chocolate cake (also gluten free!)...

This place looks interesting from the outside, with tables and benches perched on a steep allyway. First it was disappointing in that the menu advertised on the exterior is not available all day and at the time of my visit a much more limited menu was the only one offered - not a good start. I chose the veal in... More

Had a wonderful meal at Zest. A small menu, but I always think this is good, better to serve 6 or so first class dishes than a huge menu that is not up to standard. Both starters & main courses were delicious, service was excellent & wine selection good but expensive. A very enjoyable evening.
