You sit outside in a steep alley looking at the duomo. A very romantic place to eat! Make a reservation beforehand though! Creative but not your typical tuscan cuisine. The seafood risotto was too salty and the rest of the food was decent. Good house wine. Make sure to try the lemon tiramisu if you manage to get a reservation... More

Chosen by using tripadvisor, at the beginning it seemed great, a little off the beaten track, attentive staff and good food. It appeared once we did not order desert or cafe due to the machine being broken that we lost favor. On paying the bill, you were given the feeling you had let everyone down. Not a great way to...

We stumbled across Zest after visiting the shrine to St Catherine and weren't disappointed. The setting is great; a steepish path with great views across the city toward the Duomo, each table and chair leg cut so that you sit level. The food was very good and the service was not beaten whilst in Italy. Well worth a visit.

We stopped here after taking a walking tour of the city & Duomo. It was a refuelling stop really, but the waiter was friendly and willing to advise on the menu and the suggested pasta was superb. If we'd been in Sienna for longer would definitely given a full blown dinner a go.

The food was yummy and the atmosphere was great. Shame the staff who served us was not the most friendly (not the pregnant lady, she was great) and he gave our dish to another customer by mistake. It was not a big deal at the end of the day but he could be a bit more apologetic if I was... More

It's so good here we returned twice during our stay in Siena. Food is excellent, great choice on the menu of both meat and fish dishes. The service is great and the English waiter who served us was very helpful, knew a lot about the food and the wine. It has a lovely atmosphere and a great view when sat... More

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
