The food here is pretty good and the service that we had from the Head Chef and Owner was very good. The waitress that we had was on a different Planet and she was not great. The food overshadowed our experience here and we will go back. The mussels are not like Cure which is another restaurant in Portsmouth that... More

Hubby and I are Italian and appreciate decent Italian food when we travel. This place was in a great location, just shy of the main downtown area, with lots of street parking a block away. From the inside, I got the impression of an upscale vegan eatery. Nothing inside looked like an Italian restaurant but the design lines were clean... More

I've eaten here with my wife a few times, usually on a special occasion. Each time dinner has been very good. The food, Italian, is always well prepared and the atmosphere is nice. Service is very good and prices are reasonable for this level of restaurant. They take reservations and are busy around the holidays. Overall, very worth the visit.

We had the gnocci and it was a knock out, so good!!! The entrees were also very good. But getting to the dessert, the Creme Brule, it was more than OK it was AMAZING!! So if you are on a limited budget get an app and dessert!

We came here to try it, not a regular spot for us. My pasta dish was incredibly salty. The tenderloin medallions were excellent though. My only real quam was the waitresses wine service/service in general. We ordered a bottle of wine, which to open she set on the table to crank out the cork, which broke in the bottle. When... More

My husband and I had a very good meal on a Saturday evening. A Groupon is what brought us in and although we didn't use the full value, that's because we just didn't chose the most expensive menu items. I stuck with Italian and my husband chose steak, which was surprisingly good at an Italian restaurant. They definitely seemed understaffed... More

Hands down one of my favorite places in town. My wife and I try to get here as often as our schedules allow. We ended up sitting in the bar area this time which just got a serious facelift from the last time we were in here. Was disappointed with the beer selection-was only one beer on tap- but was...

I've only eaten at Radici once before. I was pleasantly surprised last time so we went back for round two. We got the bruschetta to start and was surprised by the size compared to the bruschetta we got last time we were in. It's not your typical bruschetta, it's on flatbread with a pesto base with sliced tomatoes instead of... More

Another success story by local restauranteur Jay McSharry, Radici has been the restaurant of choice for my wife and I for many years. Seating also includes a few high-top tables and you can eat at the attractive bar. You get to choose from a typically traditional Italian menu: antipasto, pasta, and a variety of main course.Try the Seafood Fra Diavalo... More

My wife and I have lived in the seacoast area for several years. I have an office in downtown Portsmouth, and for whatever reason we had never been to Radici Restaurant before. It just seems to have been under our radar, again, for whatever reason. We went for the first time last night (Mon 3/14/16) and were astonished at how... More
