Great food, lovely staff

We arrived in Sienna late afternoon and found this restaurant down a side street. We had decided to give it a try after reading recommendations on trip advisor. We were told it was too early for dinner but a lovely young lady said she would reserve us a table for 6.30. When we returned the same... read more

Great and very affordable local cuisine and very interesting eating on a hill at such a steep angle. Enjoy the very good house wine, enjoy the view and don't miss the porcini fritti if they have it.

Fun location with tables hanging on to the slope of the hill. Beautiful food and great service. We were there during a sudden downpour and had to quickly more inside. Fantastic to watch the water pouring down the street from the city above! The staff were very happy to have us stay until the rain let up. Definitely recommended.

Try to snag a sidewalk table at Zest, then balance your stool on the cobblestones as you look down the street. We shared a salad and enjoyed a glass of brunello and pecorino white wine.

"Zest" in our case was the oldest, rotten tuna carpaccio one could imagine in its worst nightmare! The fish was already dry, brown and stinky! Serving something like is incredible and most of all dangerous to people's health! Never have I thought that in Italy somebody would even have an even remotely other idea than throwing this garbage out! Upon... More

What an absolute exaggeration...we have 2 types of tuna depending on what our supplier is able to deliver, Tonno Azzuro and Tonno grigio, on this occassion it was not the red tuna and hence the colour, obviously not what you were expecting. It is sliced before each lunch and dinner shift and dressed before serving, we have our standards and... More

You know this is one of those gems you want to tell everyone about, but you want to keep your little secret. It was that good. Brilliant starters, excellent main dishes great service and a picturesque venue. Finding the place seemed a little difficult at first, but Siena is so small, it was worth exploring. You'll never encounter streets like... More

Great restaurant on a picturesque sloped street. Made a reservation and sat outside. Excellent food made in a innovative way not just the same as other restaurants. Great wine pairings and dessert. Went with family including two teenagers. Highly recommended.

Zest was recommend to me by another couple, and I really must thank them for it. It was the best meal in my three weeks of Italy. I had a special from the menu.. It was pork filets wrapped in bacon. The tenderness of the pork, the sweetness of the bacon, and the touch of sweet cream just on the... More
