We tried to go to this restaurant one evening but there was no walk-in availability. We made reservations the following evening... although online we were able to make a later reservation (maybe 9:00?), the restaurant e-mailed asking us to arrive early because the kitchen would be closing. Our schedule really didn't allow us to arrive too much earlier, and we... More

On our final day of a 10 day holiday to Tuscany we were in Siena for a 3rd day (having watched the Palio and decided to revisit Siena) and used Tripadvisor to find a restaurant for our last meal... how amazing that we happened upon this place! We were fortunate enough to have a table facing the view of the... More

I had high hopes given the reviews, and mostly this was a positive experience The GF pastas were wonderful, very impressive. The service is mostly very friendly and helpful. The grilled vegetable side dish was very bland, however.. I would've still given a 4 star review, but unfortunately the toilets were so filthy that it brought the whole experience down!... More

Firstly I am very pleased you enjoyed the food and service at Zest, however I must add that I found your comment saying that the state of the bathroom is a reflection on the kitchen rather insulting! Our bathrooms are cleaned and spotless at the start of each shift lunch and dinner, we expect our customers to respect this and... More

Do NOT seat yourself outside. Lady told us and two other couples to move after each of us (separately) sat at a four-top outside on the steps. The waitress asked each of us to move to a different table set for two. We were not bothered by this. She was friendly throughout the meal, and the food was good. Pasta... More

This restaurante is on a slope in a little side street near the centre of Siena. The staff were very friendly and spoke very good english. We had 3 different meals and all very excellent. The ambience of the setting was lovely.

We visited for lunch initially sitting outside but then the rain started so they moved us inside. I had pacchieri with fennel salami and tomato sauce with ricotta. Absolutely delicious! My daughter had carbonara which she also enjoyed but it did have cream in it so not exactly authentic and it gets a bit heavy going. My husband was a... More

I give this bad review because here I got the worst salad in my life. It had stale walnuts, wilted salad leaves. The pasta had to much truffle, giving the dish too strong of a flavor. The waiter was very polite and view stunning.

We headed for Zest having read the reviews. We booked online at their website and as requested they had a table outside for us. The view is pretty stunning - across town to the Duomo and downhill on a steep pedestrianised hill. The tables and chairs on a steep hill are interesting with the legs cut different lengths to allow... More

Had some rose and snacks here with my family. Very good quality rose and snacks. Service was a little slow and seemed not very interested. Nice location opposite to another (very busy) place, but Zest looked better
