I had a carbonara as starter and caesar salad as main course. Both were Great. The waiter kept the atmosphere light with his funny comments. Good place..

This restaurant was en route from our hotel to the cathedral tucked away down a narrow pedestrian street on a steep hill. The staff were friendly and able to recommend good wines from their list. The food was modern Italian and amazing both in quality and value for money. We had a table outside with views over to the cathedral... More

Situated on one of the back streets on quite a steep road - querky outside seating which needs to be seen. All added to the experience. Waiter was an English guy, looked after us really well - thank you for that. Lovely food and wine. Memorable meal.. Would go back in an instance. Try his place out.

Loved the food and relaxed atmosphere, no rush. If you are outside the view to the duomo is great. There was a good choice of food with many seafood specials. Good wine list as well my wife was quite taken with the Brunello. The food was cooked well and had lovely presentation try the roast potato side order, delicious. Well... More

I wonder how Domenico and Shirley can get it!! Taste and flavour is perfect with any recipe. Please follow their suggestion when you have... More

I made the mistake of ordering the squid - Italians like the ink, but to my American palate it tasted (and smelled) like an oil spill. Wish the waiter (who was English) had made sure I knew what I was getting. I love fried Calamari and squid without the ink in salads, etc., but this was really icky. Luckily, my... More

Thank you for your feedback of Zest. Your comment regarding the meal with the squid ink is some what confusing as you refer to the meal as calamari with salad when in fact it was risotto with calamari and squid ink. Like you say squid ink is used in Italy for some dishes, especially risotto and fresh pasta, unfortunately this... More

We spent 3 nights and Siena and we went to Zest twice. The food was brilliant. Service was also great! Especially the waitress James, he made us and all other customers feel that we were actually valued customers. This was one of the best restaurants we have ever been in to. Well done and I hope you guys can continue... More

We ate here in our final night in siena and we thought it was the best meal we'd had during our stay, the food really was delicious... Especially the Creme Brûlée! Despite some of the reviews on here, we found the staff to be very attentive and friendly. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go again.

I took our writing group to Zest and I must say that it was one of the best meals we had during our time in Italy. The food was very much Tuscan, but at the same time it incorporated deliciously fresh ingredients--especially vegetables (something I had difficultly finding on this trip). I had the caprese salad and the Saltimbocca di... More
