“Wonderful local place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Lovely setting with beautiful, outdoor eating area. Food was simple, but delicious, owners don't speak much English, but we were still able to communicate. Bring a phrase book though, as it is helpful!

“Don't miss this one!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We have had the pleasure of dining at il Pozzo di Radi 4 times. Each time we are amazed at the quality of the food. Recently I had a pork dish and it was the best pork I had ever eaten. Also the pici with pesto is absolutely wonderful. The husband and wife owners are a delight. Once you start to play and joke with Stefano he will play right along with you. His wife Daniella is the chef and she will let you k ow what is good that day and she is not wrong. A prior post reference the interior as sad. The only reason I would think they would say this is either they had sight issues or expected an extreme high classic style. The interior is bright, clean and typical Tuscan. It is 20 minutes from Siena in the middle of the country. Stefano raises his own chickens and turkeys and does his own hunting. It's is truly a wonderful experience to drive the beautiful distance to have an unforgettable meal and memory.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

When you go to Il Pozzo di Radi, you experience Italy at it's best, warm friendly people, who want to give you excelent food in an atmosphere of old world Italian dining. Family run, which always is special. The spaghetti pomadora a is my husband's favorite. Give it a try you will be pleased

“Friendly and traditional in a lovely setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

Old stonehouse in a yard with olive trees and a beautiful view. Service is no frills, done directly by the owner and his daughter, while the wife is in the kitchen. Food is the typical from the area, strong flavours, "pici" pasta dishes with duck or cheese, various cuts of steak and a beautiful bruschetta with the local strong tasted olive oil. The housewine is excellent, the atmosphere friendly and prices very very reasonable. Just 20 mins km away from the tourist busy villages of Montalcino and Bagno Vignoni, it has the same special atmosphere but not the crowd.
