We had lunch here today. The menu was varied and I had penne with an amazing pork ragu. The wine and beer was very reasonable and deserts were lovely. The staff were very friendly and efficient. I would certainly recommend the restaurant.

Wandering the streets of Cortona we happened upon this courtyard setting with very friendly waiter & waitress'. Teenagers are hard to please but the great variety of pasta dishes as described from the menu by our friendly waiter served everyone well after our 2 plates of Tuscan Antipasti had been devoured. The wines on the special list were good choices... More

We were 3 couples who chose Tempero because of a recommendation from our lodging host for a restaurant serving great Florentine Steak from Chianina cows. If we had stayed with the wait staff recommendations for dishes, our meal would have been superb. The appetizer soufflé was delicious and the pasta recommendations were excellent. The truffle dishes were yummy. However, we... More

We came here for a light lunch, nothing fancy, and it was very pleasant. Kind staff, especially for several families with young children, quiet and comfortable. We had simple things like the white beans which were delicious, prosciutto and melon, and a salad with tuna. It was all well prepared and fresh.

We have just returned from Tempero after a delightful meal. We were not expecting much, as we were just wandering the streets starving. We came upon this ristorante which was empty (we were early- 6:30). It had a nice outdoor terrace and a reasonable looking menu, and most importantly the chef was welcoming and said they were open! All the... More

Came across this place when we were rather late for lunch - even so place was still full (always a good sign). Nevertheless, staff were very welcoming and found us a table quickly - good menu of traditional Tuscan cooking with particularly good pasta with wild boar. Good and good value wine list. What's not to like?!
