    Starting from Radda, walk to the beautiful former monastery of Santa Maria Novella. Beautiful views and a very special atmosphere - very romantic! Perfect spot for a picnic.

Radda in Chianti Restaurants

    At the end of a weeks stay in Tuscany, we had a hankering for pizza and headed into Radda in Chianti (our nearest town) for lunch. The only real pizza place we could find was Pizza Pie, so that is where we went (even though the name did put me off a bit!).

    The restaurant was busy and unfortunately we couldn't get a table on the shaded terrace, but they did have room inside for us. We were happy enough though, especially as they had a decent high-chair for our little one.

    Favorite Dish: We ordered a couple of large pizzas to share - the bases were nice and thin, toppings sparse in the usual Italian way, but flavours great. A glass of house wine helped wash it down, and then we were on our way for a wander around Radda and a swing in the park.

    If you find yourself in Radda in Chianti and need a coffee, gelato, or even internet, then Bar Sandy is the place for you.

    Located at one end of town, on the main road, it is worth a stop, and handy if you are going to the fab deli/grocery store across the road for supplies.

    Favorite Dish: We popped in twice during a weeks holiday in the area - the first time for a coffee and gelato, and then a return visit for more gelato as it was so good! The chocolate gelato in particular was excellent - very creamy and rich. Coffee was ok too.

    This is a really authentic local restaurant. The food is great and the prices are reasonable given the quality of the food.

Radda in Chianti Shopping

    Porciatti is a family-run deli in the main square of Radda in Chianti. The food sold there is very eclectic, you will find a huge selection of top cheeses, cold cuts and wines, but also peanut butter, Colman's mustard and Marmite. They are clearly catering to the expat community... as an Austrian I clearly enjoy getting Apfelmus and Sauerrahm here:-))) Luciano and his family (virtually every one of them works in the shop even 75+ grandma) are very friendly and helpful. Some "exotic" foods are expensive, but , hey, you won't get them anywhere else in the area!

    What to buy: Pecorino cheese (fresh, medium and seasoned)
    Cold cuts (Finocchiona - with fennel seeds, Cinghiale - with wildboar meat)
    Prosciutto Toscano
    Chianti Classico wines
    good selection of other Italian wines (great Sicilian whites)
    delicious ready-made spreads for Crostini
    olives

    What to pay: average, check the price label on "exotic" stuff - like Thai rice, English jams - tends to be pricey.

    Porciatti's - sorry, crappy pic!

    What to buy: After wine, pottery is probably the next best thing to buy while in chianti, or anywhere in Tuscany. Shops, stands, and studios are everywhere, and you can pick up beautiful handmade pottery, very inexpensively.The only problem is getting them home in one piece.

    What to pay: Prices vary, but they aren't very expensive
