“Great food, even better service”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

My wife and I enjoyed an outstanding meal at Locanda al Pozzo Antico. The food was excellent, but the service blew us away. We did not order dessert, but our server treated both of us to complimentary vin santo with biscotti. After we finished it, the owner brought us another complimentary dessert. They were wonderful and gracious. They made us feel so welcome that we will return next week. I can't say enough about the quality of this place.

“Excellent Dining Experience”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

If you're looking for an excellent restaurant in Cortona try the Locanda al Pozzo Antico Ristorante. The food and service are both superb. The owner- cook and her husband are so gracious and they go all out to make this a very special dining experience. Try the bistecca, outstanding. They also run the B&B Dolce Maria next door to the restaurant which is also very nice.

“A Cortona hidden treasure!”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

We turned a corner and headed down a narrow street and stumbled upon this quaint local spot. Family ran, extremely well operated... The food was excellent, service was attentive and friendly with a true Italian feel. When we left, the chef, the owner and our kind waitress all made a point to thank us personally, a truly memorable experience.

“Great Food, Fun Experience”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

We had an excellent Sunday lunch at Locanda al Pozzo Antico. We arrived at about 1 p.m. and by 2 p.m. the place was completely full of locals, which tells you something right there. Many customers were digging in to the huge Florentine grilled steaks which seemed to be the draw on a Sunday afternoon. My husband and I ate pasta which was excellent. One of the pasta dishes was an egg pasta with a truffle sauce that was to die for. We also had some house wine with our meal and it was outstanding. The fennel and orange salad was refreshing and a delicious combination of flavors. The owners offer cooking classes and they are really good at what they do. An enthusiastic recommendation from us...one of our best meals in Italy during a three-week trip.

“Best meal in Cortona”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

We ate at several places in Cortona and this was by far our favorite. I'm still thinking about the fennel and orange salad. Wonderful, thoughtful service, fantastic food. Chef Paola was charming and came out to greet us at the end - we were delighted to learn that she offers cooking classes, just another reason to return to Cortona and eat again at this terrific place. Bravissima!
