La Bottega Di Giovannino
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Had a great time at the Bottega - clean rooms in Radda directly. Great hospitaliy and wonderful food! Really enjoyed our time there and would like to recommend this wonderful place! If you don't want to stay overnight - just drop in for an evening of excellent food and wine. (Reservation would be good)

located at one end of the delightful town of Radda in Chianti, La Bottega di Giovannini is a great base to stay and explore the area. Reasonable prices, bar and restaurant downstairs and friendly owners. The Wi-Fi is free but is a bit temperamental (or at least was on this visit).

We stayed at this family owned B&B with wine bar/restaurant in Radda for two nights. Everything was excellent! And good value! Monica, David and their father were friendly and managed the operation efficiently. We had a quiet, clean room with good view of Tuscany landscape. The restaurant food was excellent - very good salad with cured beef, walnuts and pecorino cheese - very good bruschetta - very good gnocchi with truffle sauce and creamy pecorino cheese - very good apple, walnut cake/pie.
A perfect stop on our way from Amalfi Coast back to Nice, France, before our flight back to Canada.

Room Tip: Our room with countryside view was quiet, with great view.

Can only give it the thumbs up, relaxed style and great food, soup of the day excellent, value all round, wines about the area as expected. Went back on a second night and it was just as good. They do a wine sample and happy hour plus they are happy to have early dinners for those weary travellers which can be a blessing for those Aussies who don't want to eat at 8.

My husband and I came across this lovely little restaurant whilst we were touring the Chianti region. Radda is a lovely village and at the bottom of the main street is this wonderful eating place. The owner and his staff were very friendly and they just loved children. We watched them enchanted with two little children who were dining with their parents and it was obvious they were very used to serving small ones. We both had pasta and the serves were generous, the ingredients fresh and well presented. For dolce, we shared a piece of homemade apple and nut cake and it was so good, we took one piece home. The bread basket had two types of bread and one crispbread. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Radda is a great little town to base yourself while exploring Tuscany. Not too touristy, but plenty of choices for everything. We chose La Bottega Di Giovannino after discovering our first choice, recommended by friends who'd stayed there, was very isolated with nothing for miles around. It turned out to be one of the best decisions we made. From the moment we entered we were made to feel welcome. Within ten minutes Monica had adopted us and we were not just treated like family: we were family!

We had adjoining rooms on the top floor; ours with a view straight up Via Roma; our friends view was of the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Rooms were spartan, but more than adequate. The en-suites were roomy and plenty of hot water to wash the miles away. There was no lift, but by then we'd got used to stairs, and help was available to lug those heavy cases up and down. Bed was very comfortable. The terracotta floor tiles gave the room a distinctly rustic feel, there was no escaping the fact you were in Tuscany.

The B&B has a small restaurant and wine bar downstairs, but no noise from this reached us in the upper level. Not that it was a rowdy bar; far from it; but noise was never an issue. We ate at this restaurant on out first night, and it was far and away the best meal we had in Tuscany. We were already adopted family by then, and our hosts, Monica and David, were excellent. They treated us warmly with few formalities. The wine flowed freely, and it was so obvious that they just loved what they were doing. It showed in the service, the warm rustic feel of the eatery, but especially in the food. And this love was contagious. It was just so warm and welcoming.

Monica was a wealth of information on the surrounding areas, and nothing was too much trouble for her. She organized winery tours, recommended other places to go and things to do, even down to how to find a good car park in the usually congested town.

In a nine week tour of Europe, we stayed at some good and not so good hotels and B&Bs. Most were great, but IMO only two were truly outstanding. La Bottega Di Giovannino was one of these. Not so much for the rooms and the views, but for our wonderful hosts Monica and David. We fell in love with Tuscany and Italy because of them. I know we will return one day, and when we do we'll definitely make La Bottega Di Giovannino our base in Tuscany again.

Staying at a local hotel we found this wine bar on our first night in Radda. We enjoyed the experience so much that we ate here for all three nights. Food is good, excellent mixed starters and a daily homemade pasta special. All very fresh and tasty. Wine was good value and a whole wall of wine to try! Bottles at the bar are open for tasting by the glass. Very friendly staff, unsophisticated bar but great fun and with a very authentic Italian feel. They stop cooking at 8.30pm so if you want to eat get there at 7.30pm at the latest!
