We have spent 6 weeks total staying at the farmhouse, L'Etrusca Agriturisimo, (9 km from Cortona) which is just down the road from Portole. Therefore we have eaten here numerous times, and the food and wine has always been excellent. Ask them for something not on the menu, and they will try to make it for you. It is off the beaten track, so we never found it crowded. However, tour buses do spend the night here at the Albergo, and their customers dine at the ristorante. The owner usually waits on you, always friendly with a smile. He has remembered us from year to year. His daughters also wait tables, the grandmother helps in the little shop that sells bread, cheeses, meats, and foodstuffs which is attached to the albergo. They have a nice terrace at the rear of the building to dine in warm weather. Ask the owner about his father's part in WWII - quite interesting.
Across the road there is a small terrace with a few tables and a fabulous view of Lake Trasimieno.
