Service was the worst ever experienced in Italy our waiter hardly spoke to us even when taking the order. food was at best passable some pasta dishes ok but veal scallops with marsalla a big lump of beef not veal. fritto misto of fish greasy and almost all whitebait not what it should be. Would not recommend to anyone. We waited so long for our food while tables of locals got served before us even having arrived after we felt very unwelcome and food not worth waiting for.

every year I visit Cortona with my girlfriend and her family and every year the highlight of our restaurant choices is "La Tufa" with its spectacular views and its welcoming atmosphere the food is certainly well matched, a great amount of different choices, from seafood to steak, pizza to pasta and everything in between. we can also highly recommend the house red which certainly goes down with ease. A definite must see when visiting beautiful Tuscany.

After many years we returned to this restaurant for a very nice dinner, with a spectaculair sunset included. The food still is pure, simple and served by friendly staff. Prices are very reasonable. The only drawback is the steep, but short climb to the parking area.

We have eaten here several times on our visits to Cortona. The Pizzas are very good, very thin & crispy with a good selection. It can get very busy so it would be a good idea to book and get a table at the edge of the terrace outside. This is the best bit, because when the sun sets on a summers evening, the view accross the valdichiani is breathtaking as you see the sun disappear over the plain.

You will never find pizza this good in the "States". If you like thin and crispy with scrumptious toppings, you owe it to yourself to stop at La Tufa's. Outstanding service was the "frosting on the cake". You will not be disappointed.....guaranteed!!
