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.

Great meal, lovely atmosphere sat outside, some people have commented on how steep the road is, yes it is steep but the way that the tables are set out means that you have a view over the people in front to the Cathedral and the night lights. This for me only added to the quaintness of the setting. We had... More

The food we ate was good. The server we had was very sweet and spoke great English. But you sat on a steep hill and you felt like you were on top of the couple in front of you. It honestly felt like we were eating at an Italian restaurant in The United States. You did not feel as if... More

We had just cappuccinos . It is a nice place in a small Street in the center. Usually coffee in the center of town is double the price than in local cafes. Was good service.pleasant place for a break.

My wife and I ate here this week and debated between Excellent and Very Good. We decided to go with Excellent for a few reasons: - Setting is very nice, especially if you can get an outside table. The tables are nestled and stacked against the restaurant on a steep hill. It's almost like theater seating of a beautiful view.... More
