“Best meal in Tuscany”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Lovely restaurant, beautifully planned and decorated by couple who have eye for detail. Owner is also chef, and takes personal interest in food and wine list recommendations. Had two faultless meals. This couple deserve to be successful - quality is up to the top standards. You will not be disappointed.

“How a trattoria should be!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We were staying in the Radicofani area mid september.I asked in the central bar where was a good place to eat in the village,he said almost everywhere but I was curious about Le Ginestre.
We were due to meet "gourmet friends" for lunch on a very windy,rainy day..when I saw the menu outside the trattoria I knew we'd made the right choice. We were greeted by the chef/owner and as it was a friday, fresh fish/seafood was also on the menu...however the weather did'nt really entice seafood.Our chef/waiter kindly recommended antipasti and a good local Orcia Rosso, we shared crostini and a seafood antipasto(got in the mood anyway!) all very delicous and made with local produce and fantasy.We opted for various pasta's, mainly home made pici the local speciality..which was offered with differant sauces,but also tagliatelle..everything was very good,portions very reasonable and we were tempted to share each others choice. Afterwards a main course was difficult to contemplate,but very tempting,however our friends had to leave Radicofani,so we opted for desserts (a perfect semifreddo)coffee and grappa.All in all a perfect experience,nice atmosphere,charming service,great vino and food.Well recommended,we shall go again when in the Val D'Orcia!

“A Perfect Surprise”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Visiting Val d' Orcia is a treat for the eyes and finding Trattoria La Ginestra on a 102 F day with its air conditioned dining room was a welcome respite from the sun. But the surpise was the full menu and the kind attention of our hosts. The prices are the most reasonable we have found in the 7 years we have visited this region. The portions were moderate and the quality outstanding. This is no ordinary menu. It is a menu that is well thought out to deliver the taste and quality that one would expect from a more mature restaurant. We will be back, for the food, for the friendship and to walk the streets of this beautiful town in the most beautiful part of Tuscany.
