Stumble upon this restaurant while on a short visit to Cortona. The restaurant was not opened when we arrived but Paola, chef and owner, invited us in anyway. Steak was excellent as well as her pasta. Tiramisu and pane cotta dessert were so good.

I have had lunch here twice and it is absolutely outstanding. The first time we all had pasta. The second time we decided to go for it... T-Bone steaks, it made for a fantastic lunch in an amazing city.

We brought our three children here to dine in August 17. Lovely dinner! Food was amazing and great atmosphere. We met the owner and he was kind and welcoming. They also graciously accommodated my 7-year-old daughter's picky food requests. Highly recommend.

Having read on Trip Advisor that this restaurant was "excellent" and "consistently very good", we were surprised to sit through a fairly awful dinner while on holiday in Italy. Firstly, we travelled a long way to Cortona, not only to visit, but also to enjoy...More

The best meal we had in Cortona. It's easy to miss this place as it's not showy and the tables are set in an inner courtyard. But do yourself a favor and give it a shot. We had a delicious multi-course meal with steak (cooked...More
