Trattoria type place

Low key dining with a good price point. Husband really enjoyed the mushroom and gorgonzola pasta dish. Food is not out of the ordinary but is nicely prepared and served with a smile. Full bar and one of the quieter atmospheres which makes for nice conversation.

Ate here long ago and found food to be fairly decent. Second visit was terrible so it was off my list of places to enjoy an Italian meal. Tried again hoping food had improved; sadly, I would rate this as mediocre at best. Had the chicken parmagiana-seemed to be deep fried, very heavy batter and too crispy-almost burned -my plate...

Went to Radici for my Bday dinner. We were seated right away. The service was great. They were friendly, helpful and attentive. They really stood out! We started with the gnocchi which was really tasty in a cream sauce. I had the chicken parmesan with homemade pappardelle which was really delicious. We also ordered the meatballs which were huge and... More

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

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.

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
