After a morning of wandering through the small streets of Cortona, we stopped here for lunch. They have a lovely outdoor dining area that was very relaxing. We had a fresh salad, polenta with mushrooms and pici with pesto. Everything was very fresh.

Excellent place for typical tuscan dishes. Both pasta and polenta with tartufo were wonderful, with a reasonable price. Besides that, Mara (one of the owners) is a lovely person and will be pleased to help you out. Definitely a must do in Cortona!
