This is one of our favourite restaurants. Last October I wrote a wonderful review, but this time ,
What has happened to the menu .? . Gone are the wonderful pastas, soup , stew, boar ??
We could not find a starter , then chose the lamb . A tiny rack of 4 cutlets with a ball of spinach, there was hardly any meat on the bones. The wine ,as ever, was excellent.
When we returned to our village we went into our local restaurant and had a bowl of pasta, we were so hungry. We understand that menus must change but,.......
Please, please, please put back the Tuscan dishes, they were fantastic.

This place was just perfect. Those at tables around us were over heard discussing the same. My partner and I returned three times and can say we have tried everything on the menu (can't complain about anything) My fav was the pork (chilli honey) and the Creme brûlée which comes out on fire :p. My partners, the steak with peppercorn sauce and the filo desert. Not only was the food amazing but Flavio and his staff ( the young lady we had each time ) are just amazing they take the best care of you topping up your water your wine, checking everything is ok. Not to mention the home made breads and lemoncelo!! I will miss this place :(

We had dinner at this restaurant after checking the tripadvisor reviews in our hotel first. We weren't disappointed! Great service and delicious food, offering an above-average dining experience for a little town. The prices weren't shocking (especially compared to anything here in Australia) and we left satisfied. The house-made limoncello given to us to at the conclusion of our meal was the best we had during our trip, and the owner/chef was a very personable man!
Eat here at least once if you are in Radda.

The fellow at Casa Emma winery in Chianti recommended this restaurant to us and we were delighted. The food was delicious and while there were many standards, there were a few creative dishes as well. The lamb chops were particularly good. I felt it was good value for money, as dinner for four with a nice quality bottle of wine was E 150. As with most places in Tuscany, limoncello was brought out at the end, but here they gave each table an entire bottle! It was tempting, but we behaved. Service was good, although they fill up quickly and sometimes wait staff are a bit overtaxed. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are in the area.

Our hotel recommended and booked this for us for good reason. Situated in the very pretty town of Radda in the town centre. Food was cooked to perfection. Think we had lamb chops and rabbit stew for mains with a side dish to share.
Staff and friendly and a happy chef even came out to say hello and ask how food was.
A lovely evening and would not hesitate to recommend. Out hotel said was popular so booking is advised.
