This is not a chain-restaurant. So the food tastes differently all the time but still very good. Seafood pappardelle was great and the chicken saltimbocca was fine but almost too much. The wine was suitable and well priced. So overall a good place to go. There is s backdrop also: stay away from the espresso. That's lousy. But the waitress... More

Dropped in last night for a birthday meal and was very disappointed. I ordered the Mushroom Crespelle - NH Mushroom Co. blend - goat cheese - leeks - puff pastry - garlic cream. What i got was a very cold plate with a thick cold rolled crepe filled with a COLD glop of white cream cheese like substance that has... More

Dear "Holy Crepes", I apologize for your experience on the 15th. We did just roll out our new fall menu & there was a typo of "puff pastry" on the Mushroom Crespelle item which has since been corrected. We do get our mushrooms from the NH Mushroom Co. (we're very friendly with Dennis the owner who drops in a couple... More

Visited this evening (Tuesday). It was pretty busy and we could tell that many who came in were "regulars". Started off with a greens salad which was lightly dressed with a vinegarette. The greens were fresh and crunchy and the tomato was thinly sliced and beautifully red and flavorful. The main entrees come in a choice of 2 sizes. I... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to review your experience at Radici. Correct, we do have lots of loyal regulars who we love & appreciate greatly. People seem to really like having the option of the smaller or larger portions as well. We aim at a menu where you can come in & "go all out" or just stop... More

My wife and I went for dinner there. I had the fish of the day, monk fish - with arugula lemon salad, jumbo artichoke ravioli, and tomato fennel sauce. It was very good and the service was great.

So disappointed last night. This WAS one of our favorite places. Our waitress I believe forgot about us. 45 minutes after ordering dinner we finally had to ask another server if it was ready or if there was a problem in the kitchen. Our appetizer plates were finally taken away after sitting on our table for 25 minutes. Either the... More

Dear "enjoyyourchildren", This was a crazy night at the restaurant & unfortunately not everything goes as planned in this business. As I remember, the appetizers we're having a time issue getting to your table so we decided to send your family out an antipasti on the house as a way of showing that we did notice the problem. After you... More

We met close friends for a delicious meal and wonderful evening. We have eaten at Radici in past summers on our annual trip to Southern Maine. But our recent visit was by far the best. The chicken parmigiana was superb as were the salmon dish and seafood scampi dishes. The restaurant is quiet and a lovely place for a meal.... More

Bulle54, I believe you must have ordered our polpette entree. Our house made beef, pork & veal meatballs stuffed with provolone cheese are served on pappardelle pasta, which is an egg noodle. We do offer linguine, fettuccine, penne & gluten free pasta if you'd like to switch out the pasta choice next time. Sorry for the confusion & hope we'll... More

Had dinner here on a Saturday night. There was no wait to get seated, but we were told, we would have a wait for our meal as there were some large parties ahead of us. The main reason we ate here was because they offer gluten free dining. We felt the portions were good, most meals offered small and large... More

Norma G, Thanks for writing. We do offer gluten free pasta that can be substituted for any pasta dish. We also have many dishes that naturally come gluten free (risotto, polenta etc). Parking is definitely an issue in downtown Portsmouth, we're working with town officials to get more parking options ASAP. If your food took a little extra time due... More

Just had a great meal a Radici's in Portsmouth, NH before the 4th of July fireworks. The food, atmosphere, and service were exceptional. It's a perfect place to eat when you visit Portsmouth.
