We made a reservation here because of Rick Steeves, and when we arrived we were led down some stairs, past a stone walled room into a bright white walled room. Would have preferred the stone walled room, but I didn't say anything. Had a perfect table in the corner. My daughter had the Gnocchi with Ricottl and Tartufa, salad and... More

We wanted a good fiorentina steak and that's exactly what we got! Friendly service despite it being very busy with families celebrating Halloween! An excellent chocolate tart with pears. Good, not fussy and well placed.

Stumbled on this restaurant while walking in Cortona. Wonderful and attentive service, despite a full restaurant. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meals and the vino da casa was very good. A very pleasant experience for dinner.

Had a great meal at the Grotta with friends on a cool fall evening. Great interior style. Pasta was great. Service was spot on. I put this trattoria on the top of my Cortona list.

Ciao- the food is hearty- the portions traditional and service as if you are in your favorite aunt kitchen. The rich soil and Tuscan air is in everything you eat- you taste the food in the way it was meant to be eaten- enjoy and bring a few friends What you see here is: Fresh bruschetta- tagliatelle pasta with truffle...
