My two friends and I had dinner there last night. The most striking thing is that for outdoor seating, you are seated at tables on benches, perpendicular and on a very steep street; the legs of the tables and benches are wildly uneven to make it work. The food was tasty and beautifully presented, I had pounded chicken breasts rolled with figs and pecorino cheese: "involtini" with some lovely wine. DO NOT miss the limoncello "tiramisu" though the chocolate torte was spectacular, too. Friendly service, unusual spot, we enjoyed the place immensely.

The evening we ate at Zest in Siena was the nicest evening on our two week stay in Italy. The food was excellent and tasted even better with the good priced Brunello. We sat outside which is a must and enjoyed every minute. James was very helpful and made us feel comfortable after spilling a glass of wine. He gave that person in our party another glass of wine to make the embarrassment go away.. Now where else would that happen. We all had different dishes and each of us were pleased. It's a great place to eat.

We were recommended to go to Zest and were not disappointed. The food was incredible, as was the wine, view and service. Our waiter was from London and provided us with fantastic advice on what to do in the Montalcino region , where we were visiting the next day. The owner came out and spoke to us and provided us with complimentary limoncello and grappa. Since being here, we have recommended it to a number of people. We sat at one of the tables on the lower end of the steep street and had wonderful views of the Douma. I highly recommend Zest.

Perched outside high on a hill with a lovely view, enjoying an appetizer of lightly fried squid and zucchini while sipping a great bottle of wine .... things couldn't have started off better.

Unfortunately, they didn't stay that way. My husband's main dish was good, but mine was simply awful. The risotto with seafood "special" arrived with clams, squid and a charred prawn sitting on top. Out of the 10 or so clams, only two were open ... the dead ones should never been put on the plate. The risotto was overly salted and very "fishy," and the one prawn was charred so bad that when I snapped it open, there literally wasn't anything inside worth eating.

My husband tasted it and agreed that it was terrible. He called over the gentleman that was waiting on us and told him the meal was not good ... something we very rarely do. To their credit, they immediately took it away and offered something else, but I wasn't interested in ordering another meal as my husband was almost finished with his.

They did remove the meal from the bill, even though we told them not to. Other than that, it was a nice experience, but it could have been great had I ordered something else. Perhaps it is best to stay away from the day's "specials" and order from the regular menu.
