Fabulous restaurant. Ask for their special Campari spritzer to start off your meal. Do not expect to get up from the table hungry! The waiter couldn't have been more helpful and gave excellent advice about the choice of wine.

Our experience at this restaurant was great, and we would travel back just to eat here again. We ate indoors in the lovely great room. The menu was incredibly diverse which we appreciate. We ate tortelloni stuffed with braised beef with sweet onion sauce from Tropea; tortellini with tartufo; pink farfalle noodles with beef; taglioni with duck and fennel. Everything was outstanding. All pastas are homemade. The onion in the bag was delicious. We also ordered desserts which we don't normally do--however this was due to the outstanding nature of. This included a mille fleur and nocciola gelato served with choolate pistachio shavings. Cool appliances included a huge pepper grind and a special server for the chocolate. Excellent ambience and service. Absolutely charmed and will long remember. Plus, prices were very affordable, especially for the quality.

My husband and I ate dinner twice while we were staying near Cortona and thoroughly enjoyed the experience both times. This is a lovely and relaxed restaurant with excellent Tuscan food, a great wine list and a staff both helpful and delightful. It's a "don't miss" when you are in Cortona.

After a wonderful wine tasting in the Palazzo, this was the perfect place for our group to dine. Food and service capped our first night in Cortona perfectly!
