Radda: La Cantonieri di Vescine

Reviewed by: Karen from PA, review #112

When: 2001

Nice place, well-rounded menu.

They had just opened for the season (March) and it was quiet. I think it's geared towards the tourist, as the menu is in Italian, English and German. It had just been printed and we had a few laughs from the translations: "goose smoked chest" and "potato flan with turkey cock"! Our server, Tania, was very knowledgeable about wine and we talked a long time about all sorts of Italian wines and olive oils. Here again, I had black truffles with the 'chest' on tagliatelle. They had a good, well-balanced ribollita and rabbit sauce on pasta. It was a long, enjoyable evening and we stopped by the next day to pick up a bottle of Tania's grandfather's olive oil from Sicily.
