We stopped for a late lunch and the view are amazing, which they are from anywhere in Radda. The thing to go for is the simple red sauce. My fiancé got the fagottini with red sauce and she says it was the best she's ever had. It was the simplest sauce, just cooked tomatoes with olive oil and salt, but... More

This food is typical of the area and is made with love and pride. We took a good friend here for dinner and she lives in the area and knows the 2 sisters. The meal was just delightful and although it is not fancy the food, service and prices are very pleasing. I do not usually eat sweets but they... More

There is nothing exceptional about this restaurant, but there is nothing bad about it, either. You get a good meal at a good price with decent service.

When you go for dinner on your own, you might end up with a table at the door or kitchen, but here there is place enough in September so I can pick a nice spot. I am early so good explanation of what is available next to the menu. Flat bread starter is not worth the money, but it looks... More

The restaurant is located right along the town wall overlooking the valley, not far from the visitor parking spots. It's right in the center, but not directly in the touristic walking route inside the town, so it's a place, where mostly locals go. The restaurant is tiny, so in the evening reservation is needed. The food was excellent, traditional, yet... More

This small restaurant was recommended by our hotel, and it was better than anticipated, with beautiful view outside as well. Dinner was the best I've had from Venice to Florence to here! Service was friendly and efficient. Wish we had more days here, as I'd welcome a return visit to this restaurant.

We happens upon Rada in Chianti by chance and what a find! The staff were very welcoming and we had a great table with a view across the valley with vineyards aplenty - an incredible Tuscan vista. The food was excellent - the Parpadelle with Cinghiale (wild boar sauce) was a taste-bud sensation followed by the most divine cheesecake ever!... More

The view from this restaurant is beautiful and they have a nice outdoor patio. The food was good with mainly traditional Tuscan items on the menu. The Pici with eggplant stood out and the boar ragu was also very nice.

Visited here on a short solo visit to Radda as a stop off from a wine tasting tour. i decided to eat outside the main walled town to get a better view but was a bit pressed for time so stopped at this little road-side restaurant. I decided to have something different from the pasta and pizza i had been... More
