On recommendation by a local shopkeeper our party of 4 landed in this little gem in the middle of Chianti country. Noontime and the place was packed. Warm and cozy with an ambience one always hopes for when visiting Italy. Family run 2nd generation and easy to feel at home especially after a touch of the vino di casa which... More

Brother & sister duo David & Monica have run this great bar for over 10 years - very good local food, especially their "Sott'olio" vegetables & cheeses. Popular with the local villagers

We visited this bottega based on the recommendation of local man we met on the street but at the end it showed to be really good choice. La Bottega Di Giovannino is family owned restaurant run by Mr. David Bernardoni. La bottega offers homely friendly cordial atmosphere accompanied by excellent food and wines and all for reasonable price. Highly recommended.

I loved this place. We are in Radda in late November. Few places open so not much choice. This was one of the best meals I've had in Italy. Honest local cuisine by folks who care about what they do. Try the house antipasto and the grilled veggies. Everything was really tasty. Thanks David and staff.

A very good casual bar/ristorante to catch s break as you fall in love with Radda! Food is very authentic and reasonably priced. Service slightly slow depending on time of day. It's small and cozy ! Enjoy.

Food was okay at this place. We were expecting a dinner menu, but it only has 5 pasta options and then antipasta, basically. The pasta was good, but nothing to go here for.

Had dinner here and it's a gem ... I didn't have a booking and they accommodated me especially on a Saturday night. The food was delicious (home cooking like my nonna) and they have a great selection of wine (even better than most expensive restaurants). The service was homely and honest. I recommend you eating where if you are in... More

Had a delicious lunch here. Service was great and food was wonderful! The soup and bruschetta were amazing. Very good prices. The location of this restaurant is right in the middle of downtown Radda. We sat outside which was very nice.

We were recommended to this restaurant by a local (Olga) and it was a beautiful spot for dinner. Great food, great service and beautiful wine. Our waiter was a real laugh which made dinner extra special.
