We tried both. Lunch here and dinner. The service and the location made us return, and of course the good food. Pasta with truffles was very fresh. And the salad with tomato and mozzarella the best we had. Bruschetta with tomatoes: freshly picked tomatoes probably, excellent. If you have dinner here, make a reservation. And make sure to bring a something warm to wear. It can become windy outside. We had to move in, which was also very cozy. Service made no problem with to moving of tables.

Great location overlooking the main square, matched by high quality of service and food. Recommend for adults and older children. Excellent selection of genuine Tuscan dishes.

The location is great (overlooking the main square and city hall), the food was really tasty, but the waiters seemed like they wanted to be doing something else. No smiles, no attentiveness, just the bare necessities. It wasn't that great of an experience because of that. With the exception of two gentlemen (the African looking waiter and the grey-haird man) and the lady handling the bill, the restaurant could do with some more cheerful characters. We're there to have a nice evening, not attending a funeral, so a postive vibe would be more of a welcome. It's a shame, because the food is really good and we would have otherwise visited again for sure.

Cortona is one of the world's great historic small cities and the central piazza straight from a Shakespearean play. La Loggetta overlooks the piazza and is the best location in town.

We've now been there four or five times and each time it has been terrific. Today the scaloppine al funghi was fabulous.

The same team that looked after us last year were just as friendly today.

A simply brilliant place!

This is a wonderful spot. The food is very good (although not the best you can find in Cortona), but the setting on the large terrace overlooking the square just cannot be beat. Service is very good...we recognize several waiters from years past and it makes it feel like our "local place."

We've had very good luck just walking in for dinner without a reservation (though we tend eat on the early side...7-ish), but if you want to be sure of a nice spot on the terrace I'd book in advance. There is indoor seating as well, and it looks nice...but you want to be on the terrace.

I don't want to shortchange the food...they do have my favorite pici with duck ragout in Cortona, and when we dined there in July they had a special appetizer which they called a "caprese alternative": a sort of deconstructed insalata caprese with diced tomatoes, soft bur rata cheese, and pesto--served parfait-style in a glass jar. It was so delicious I had it both times we ate there.

As is usual for Italy the house wines are excellent.
