We cannot recommend Il Ghiottone da Mauro enough! Our family was a big party (8 people and a toddler) and the staff were so accommodating and lovely. We ordered incredible salads, pizzas and pasta and loved it so much we came back a second night! The prices were extremely reasonable, especially for the quality of food. Egidio was our waiter...

Last night we bought pizzas from Ghiottone da Mauro to take back to our villa and they where great. In fact, one of the best pizzas we have had in Italy so far. The staff where welcoming and helpful and I highly recommend this restaurant.

This place seems to be a locals' favourite. We arrived early and it filled up with couples, groups of friends and families during our visit. The service was great, friendly and helpful. We all had pizza - though other dishes are available - and salad. The pizza was very good, delicious ingredients on a nice thin base. They serve a... More

We arrived pretty late in our B&B and didn't want to drive up the hill anymore to the city centre of Cortona at night, having no clue of what to find there and how to get to the restaurants over there. So we opted to go to Il ghiottone da Mauro in Camucia. The place is apparently well known for... More

Up a side street in the city of Camucia, just below Cortona, you will find one of the best pizza restaurants I have experienced in Italy. The restaurant has been recently remodeled and you have an option of eating outside (glass enclosed) or inside. I prefer outside in the summer, but Wednesdays are family nights and families with multiple children... More

This restaurant was suggested to us by our hotel. We ate there twice. Good, reliable Italian food. The pizza was nice and the meat dishes very good. The Nutella cheesecake was a simple but very tasty desert. There were lots of locals dropping in for take away pizza which is a good sign! The service was a bit haphazard but... More

Typical family run restaurant in the centre of Camucia. Their steaks are amazing and brilliant value. It is a no frills real Italian local restaurant. Lots of choice and the pizzas are Devine. You can eat in or take away.

As a tourist, the owner of our house we rented, showed us the way to Il Ghiottone, as 'the best pizza of Cortone'. And indeed, they were excellent. Very good antipasti also. We enjoyed the whole evening, the meal, the service. The price was very fair. Thx to Paulo for showing us the way!
