We walk in - 4 adults and 4 children - on Tuesday afternoon when most of places are usually clos. We were greeted with a warm welcome and great hospitality throughout our meal. The food was very good. The sausage - a must!!!

We ate here twice. Once for lunch and sat outside (quite an interesting experience.) Another time for dinner and sat indoors (very quaint and charming.) Food was very good. Steak Florentine was marvelous!

My wife and I had an outstanding meal here focused mainly on seafood. The salmon, squid, and all other dishes were excellent. A wood burning oven and a butcher counter are the hallmarks of this place. Cool cave atmosphere. Good.romantic spot.

We were looking for a good meal in Cortona and this place was recommended. Totally exceeded expectations. We had ribeye Florentine style and Gambero, and two starters that could have been a meal. Excellent wine list and service, and reasonably priced for the quality.
