We thought this was overrated for the price. Try Locanda Borgo Antico in Lucolini if you are in this area.

Sirs,
I just would like to make a remark: on our menu our starters cost between 6 and 8 Euro, first course 8-9 Euro and main courses with side dishes 13 euro: if, in your opinion, these are very expensive prices, I recommend you to have dinner in some Mc Donald's or similar fast food places, maybe they would suit your taste better.
Regards

This restaurant is amazing: you literally sit among the vineyards, and the view is breathtaking: moreover, I've had a delicious meal, tasting different plates like the Spaghetti with le Vigne sauce (sausage, tomato and mushroom), and the a very good beef fillet with truffle sauce, and just at the end i couldn't resist to a perfect slice of soft chocolate cake with cream.

During our family vacation, my sister-in-law searched online and found Le Vigne which had excellent reviews. Since she was in charge of planning our day's journey, so she mapped the restaurant for lunch on her phone and off we went. Well, this place is incredibly hard to find. If we hadn't stopped in Radda to ask for directions, I'm not sure we would have found it. It is about a mile outside of Radd in Chianti and once you take the turn off, it is a short (but seemingly long) and incredibly bumpy drive to the hotel/restaurant. The first thing you notice is the amazing view. Then you start eating. I had the best lasagna of our whole trip here. We all took bites of each other's meals and no one could say which was their favorite. This is a must-see and must-have place if you're in the area.

We were referred to this restaurant while shopping at ramping ceramics and what a pleasant surprise. After a short adventure down a bumpy road through the vineyards we were greeted warmly and had a relaxing, delicious lunch. Great service, good wine, tasty food and beautiful views. So much so we returned for dinner a few nights later and repeated the experience. I can't recall the names of some of the dishes but the fried cheese appetizer and pecorino and pepper pasta were outstanding

Stayed here for 8 nights, most people do an overnight, and we were able to have both lunches and dinners. Fantastic views. Staff very friendly and food very good. One evening I had the "Florentina" a 900gm T Bone, took up the whole of a round bread board !! need to be very hungry to order.

Prices less than in Radda

Directions misleading - if coming from west - pass through Radda, down hill, restaurant sign on right - turn right before bridge and sign "Le Vigne 0.4 - fo;;ow track through rows of chianti

Buon appertito !!
