“Good food with a lively buzz”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

On the night we wanted to eat, this was definitely the livliest place in Radda. The food was good and good value for money. The English hostess was very friendly and service was good. She recommended a local wine which was very nice and far from the more expensive wines on the wine list. We had an an enjoyable evening.

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

We spent 5 days in Tuscany and this was my favourite meal. It's more of a cafe than a restaurant but the quality of the food could go up against any of the restaurants we ate at.

Radda is gorgeous so the location is perfect for a long lunch. All of our food was exceptional, especially the soup!

“Could do better”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

The food was very bland and there was not a great choice. It was also quite expensive with a light lunch costing 40 euros for two people.

Carolyn C, Owner at Bar Dante, responded to this review, June 16, 2013
I am sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with your lunch. I am surprised that with a selection of 8 panini, 5 types of bruschetta, 7 pasta dishes, 3 main courses, ten cold plates and various salads as well as the daily specials that the menu was not ample enough. For a casual wine bar, we try our best to provide meals for all tastes and pockets. If you paid €40 euros for two people then your light lunch must have included at least two first and two main courses with wine and possibly dessert as our highest price for pasta is €7.00 which includes service and cover charge. We invite all dissatisfied clients to express any complaints, so that we can offer an alternative dish and hope that on a return visit you will be happier at Bar Dante.

“Good, simple food and low prices”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

I had a tagiatelle with boar bolognese which I enjoyed, but my wife's lasagne wasn't fantastic, however for the price we didn't complain. Sitting outside in the front you can watch the people pass by and the atmosphere is pleasant.
