“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Great little wine shop with a good selection of wines and a great selection of gifts to take home. Also a great place to relax with a glass of wine and appetizer. Riccardo also has amazing meats and cheeses for a light lunch or to take home.

“Buy all your gifts for home here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Riccardo, the owner of this wine shop, has excellent taste and a very good selection of food items to take home for your friends and family. I buy truffle oil, wine, cheese and gourmet salts... and there are hundreds of other things to buy here.

The best part, is that Riccardo can shrink wrap you cheese so you can bring it home and eat it months later... this shop is a treasure.

“Great place - not a full menu but the best wine list”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Finding ourselves in Gaiole in Chianti at 1 p.m. on the way to our B&B further south, we went to La Cantinetta based on Tripadvisor reviews. We had a great time - the proprietor, Ricardo, who is mentioned in other reviews is very friendly and efficient. This is a wine store with some outside tables that offers a variety of cold trays - meats, cheeses, and condiments. It also has dessert available. Ricardo went next door and brought us cappuccino to have with dessert (it was added to his bill, which was reasonable.) For a light lunch with great wine, this is the place. Two days later we returned, bought some cold cuts for later in the day and obtained very knowledgeable advice on wine buying wine from the Chianti region.
