“Invigorating home-made food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

If you want to relish local specialties (try their pasta con cinghiale), this is the place to go. The food is typical of the area, the wines are delicious and the staff efficient and friendly. The place is filled with locals, which is a good indication. It is certainly a place to recommend...

“Good food, good staff, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

The food is plentiful, good, and reasonably priced. The house red wine is completely drinkable and, at €3.50 for 375 cl., a heck of a deal. The staff are helpful and good natured, even when they’re run off their feet by Italian bicyclists and German motorcyclists, as they were during my recent visit. The walls are decorated with classic motor rally pictures and even one that appears to be from the Mille Miglia back in the 1960s. Cool!

“Best food and value in All of Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

We rented an apartment in Radicofani and the best part of that town is LaGrotta. The cinghiale and polenta is just scrumptious. I went to La Grotta 3 times and each time I could not pass up this dish. The place is bustling with people at all times on the weekend. Reservations are recommended. Giovannina is one of the owners and cooks--she will definitely take care of you. She makes her own pasta and is very proud of her food. The locals are in the place and that alone is a great recommendation. When the bill arrives, you will be astounded at what a value you have discovered. Go there and feast!!

“Good portions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

It was our first restaurant experience in Radicofani..a busy saturday lunch.Very reasonable prices and enormous portions,good local house wine and family service.Maybe if I was'nt a chef and having a good knowledge of tuscan cuisine I would'nt have been too critical. However,everything was fine,just was'nt the best place I ate in Val d'Orcia.

“Good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

This is a rustic little place in a "grotto". The food is very simple but tasy and very good value. They also have bottles of local wine for about EUR3.50 and you only pay for how much you drink. Don't expect anything fancy. This place is great for a casual, simple and tasty meal.
