We stopped by chance on Zest and had a truly magnificent lunch. We had one of the antipasta platters and then each got a pasta dish and it was perfect. Very satisfying and great service. We thought about going back one night for dinner but didn't make it. Probably needs a booking a dinner time.

Zest was a welcome break from the usual Italian fare in Siena, while remaining respectful to regional cooking and ingredients. Small and compact wine list, offering some great by the glass options. Service was friendly and courteous, although perhaps a little rushed. Good evening out, would recommend it.

Good aptmosphere and decor. Very nice starters, Tuscan bean soup and cheese quiche delicious. Tagliatelle I thought ok but my wife loved it. Delicious crime brûlée and reasonable wine list. Would recommend for lunch or dinner or just for a drink.

Set on the steep path down to the Sienna city centre just by St Catherine's, this is an excellent American-Italian restaurant with interesting al fresco dining options on the slope outside. Our party of 12 ate inside and were very well looked after. My risotto, gnocchi, creme brulee combination was delicious. Very highly recommended.

I enjoyed a tasty meal at Zest. The service was very good and the food was tasty. The best part about our dinner at Zest was the unique experience of enjoying a meal outside at a table that was on a steep cobbled street in the old town. There is also seating inside the restaurant.

If you are looking for a great restaurant and wine bar while in Siena, look no further than Zest. The food was excellent as was the service. If sitting outside, be prepared to be on a bit of an incline. Close to all major sites.
