Probably the best local food we had in Italy. Wild boar cooked for 15 hours and seasoned to perfection. Excellent steaks. Good pasta and amazing deserts. Highly recommended!

Just 15 seconds out of the centro of Radicófani you'll find this really tastefull restaurant with typically Italian dishes. We've experienced a lot of passion for food, wine and sharing a good time. The garden with a lot of 'natural' shadow provides the best atmosphere for the perfect lunch & dinner. Prizes are also very friendly. Complimenti to the super... More

This was marginally better than the other main restaurant in the centre of town. It has a more interesting menu and a nicer setting - we sat outside in the garden. It was reasonably busy with locals when we visited. The food was pretty poor given the reputation in this part of Italy and the service was fairly disinterested.

We stayed just outside Radicofani, and went here for dinner one night. Because I'm celiac, I had emailed before we came to make sure that they could serve gluten free food. This was no problem. The chef came out to welcome us, and recommended a starter with a mix of cheese, ham, etc. It was delicious. Than we all had... More

We were looking for a trattoria to take one of our favourite, aged relatives to lunch somewhere near Radicofani and thought Trattoria le ginestre might fit the bill. We were right – we had a very pleasant time and Morena was happily telling everyone she met the following few days how good it was! Let’s look at it from her... More

We returned to Trattoria le Ginestre in April of this year, on our way to the waters at Fonteverde. The owner recognized us from three years ago and we enjoyed the very fresh food and good conversation. This is an excellent trattoria in a very beautiful hilltop town. We stay in Bagno Vignoni and the drive here is beautiful, especially... More

Came here last year. Have been back twice this trip. Everything just as good as before. Owner is chef and takes personal interest in each guest. If you get within 50k of Radicofani, make time to try it - you will not be disappointed.

We came across this restaurant looking for a place to lunch after visiting the castle. The restaurant is on the access road to Radicofani, just outside the town. The interior is up to date and nicely done up. In good weather, there is are outside tables as well. We were in windy condition so sat inside. We were pleasantly surprised... More
