Our day in Radda was spent with an acquaintance who had spent time in Canada and we basically asked him to plan the day for us which included our lunch. We assumed that because we were with a local that the service and meal we got was exceptional. Not so reading the other reviews. Friendly proprietors, a great little patio to sit on, in the shade, I might add and the food was simple and delish. We always let the server chose the wine, and it did not disappoint. Lovely day, thanks to Mirko and La Bottega Di Giovannino.

Go, go, go. We loved this place and of the four nights in Radda, we only missed the day it was closed. Small, but extremely friendly, a great place for a drink, antipasti, coffee or whatever you fancy.

If you like a casual place with a large wine selection and fresh, local ingredients, this is the place. The Bruschetta has fresh, fresh tomatoes and nice olive oil. The pasta dishes are wonderful. There is outdoor seating, but in October it was a little cool to sit outside. We actually ate there twice since we liked the pasta so much (inside seating). The staff was very friendly and spoke much better English than we did Italian. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed the experience.

This is a very pleasant family-owned restaurant run by Monica and her brother, David. They make you feel right at home as they serve up fresh local specialties. Enjoy a wonderful selection of wines, fresh tomatoes from Monica's garden, and the best espresso around.

when you arrive hungry in Radda between lunch/dinner time (italian style) this place is a good little choice. Their outdoor seating is nice for people watching, and the food good, the desert even better!!!
It seems to be an enoteca, but they do serve full meals. And the owners mother make some of the cakes, ask which ones!
they also run a small b & B.
