During our week stay in Cortona (5 adults), this was the only restaurant we chose to eat at more than once. It's a lovely family run restaurant. From fresh-baked bread to homemade pasta to outstanding steaks, we enjoyed every visit. We ate inside once because it was raining, and then in the courtyard when the weather was nice.

We have had several meals and stayed at this lovely palazzo hotel and restaurant in the past three years. It never fails to impress with the excellent service and great food; much of which is down to Paola and her family who run the place.

We had three visits to al Pozzo this year and the last was the best. The cheese and truffle fondue ( sharing for 2) is exceptional and the pecarino filo pastry dish is also good; both are antipasto. Tagliatelle al cinghale never disappoints and for me the best dish from the Secondi menu was the lamb - chops and fillet done to perfection with fennel, bay and rosemary, accompanied by roast potatoes. We had an interesting addition with fagolini de trasimeno ( black eyed beans in a tasty tomato sauce). For dessert, the chocolate pudding with blackcurrants was a perfect way to finish a great last evening in Tuscany.

Service at al Pozzo is friendly and attentive; Paola and her family are great hosts and the atmosphere in her restaurant is always welcoming.

I would rate this one of the best restaurants in Tuscany and certainly my top choice in Cortona.

We visited this restaurant one evening in August with our three children. We sat in a small courtyard which was really lovely. The food and wine were both excellent. We had the fondue, which was very tasty, followed by pasta. The menu was varied and had plenty of choice for everyone. The service was excellent - friendly and helpful. All in all, a great find as this restaurant is off the main tourist trail and offers great value.

Revisited this year, having eaten here a couple of times last year and again: it was great! Such warm and friendly people that run this restaurant, you always feel welcome! The food is wonderful, the lady of te house is the head chef and she knows how to cook! If you are looking for a lovely, quiet restaurant, with excellent food and nice people welcoming you: go and have your dinner here - you'll want yo come back for more!

Spent a year in Cortona in 2012/13 and ate here many times, always wonderful. Had our daughter with us this month for a short visit and friends took us to lunch here the day we arrived. Paola had just made zucchini risotto and everyone tried it. After two weeks in Italy, we were once again back in Cortona for our Daughter's last night and she requested this place again for the risotto, said it was the best meal she had in all of Italy. Guess that is as good a review as you can get. Thank you, Paola for making her trip so special!
