We stopped here during a self guided wine tour of Chianti, and LOVED everything - probably the best meal and marinara sauce we had during our two weeks in Italy! Staff was very friendly - even shared tips on how to replicate their sauce :)

Our day in Radda was spent with an acquaintance who had spent time in Canada and we basically asked him to plan the day for us which included our lunch. We assumed that because we were with a local that the service and meal we got was exceptional. Not so reading the other reviews. Friendly proprietors, a great little patio... More

Go, go, go. We loved this place and of the four nights in Radda, we only missed the day it was closed. Small, but extremely friendly, a great place for a drink, antipasti, coffee or whatever you fancy.

If you like a casual place with a large wine selection and fresh, local ingredients, this is the place. The Bruschetta has fresh, fresh tomatoes and nice olive oil. The pasta dishes are wonderful. There is outdoor seating, but in October it was a little cool to sit outside. We actually ate there twice since we liked the pasta so... More

This is a very pleasant family-owned restaurant run by Monica and her brother, David. They make you feel right at home as they serve up fresh local specialties. Enjoy a wonderful selection of wines, fresh tomatoes from Monica's garden, and the best espresso around.

when you arrive hungry in Radda between lunch/dinner time (italian style) this place is a good little choice. Their outdoor seating is nice for people watching, and the food good, the desert even better!!! It seems to be an enoteca, but they do serve full meals. And the owners mother make some of the cakes, ask which ones! they also... More

Yes, it's just a friendly bar; well, believe me, here you'll taste some of the fresher ingredients in the area. The fresh pasta of the day is a must. Like eating at home.

We had just finished that she told us if we were going to order something else or not because the kitchen would close soon (it was 8 pm by the way!!;-) ) apparently we were blocking here table a bit too long...

OK, it's well known that good service can cover up on medium-low quality products, especially in the culinary business. I know that our experience's "sample" is singular, along with the fact that this sort of experiences is absolutely individual, BUT: From the moment we arrived at La Bottega Di Giovannino, our waitress gave us the bitter impression that we are...

Delicious homemade pasta that melts in the mouth. This is the type of food we wanted to experience whilst in Italy. Excellent value for money and good friendly service. Best place we found in Radda by far.
