While staying at Il Falconiere we went to Cortona for dinner at a sister restaurant. We were a group of 6. Seated and greeted immediately. Great wines (duh, Italy). An eclectic menu with great options, fish, pasta, and meets. Great service Great Food Highly recommended

My friends and I had a very good dinner here on 16 September while staying in the area. The only thing that was not excellent was my wife's Snapper. She felt it was bland. The lamb chops were wonderful, flavorful and perfectly prepared. The scorpion fish ravioli was delicious and the scallops with yogurt , quinoa and green apple was... More

Not your average presentation or selection of food for this area. Definitely had a twist on the eclectic but tasty side.

Party of seven experienced diners who have been to multiple Michelin star rated in Europe and the US, had dinner in Oct 2016. Our experience was disappointing. The attention to detail expected at restaurant of this caliber was poor. A dead fly was in one the glasses on the table at the start of the meal. The waiter then proceeded... More

After touring the Baracchi winery and learning how to open a bottle of spumante with a sabre, we soon found out why a restaurant is awarded a Michelin star. On a beautiful early afternoon (under late summer Tuscan sun) we sat on a tree covered patio and had a sublime lunch paired well with the wines we had just seen.... More

We were recommended this restaurant by friends who raved about their experience dining there ten years ago on their honeymoon (particularly the Florentine style steak they said was spectacular). We visited the restaurant this September with another couple (party of four). The outdoor setting was charming and the view was gorgeous. We were disappointed to find that the Florentine steak...

Dear …. I am sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience in our restaurant. Our Menu changes seasonally and if we had still the same dishes after 10 years it would be boring and not challenging for the waiters the chefs and our customers. Next time I suggest to call the restaurant of check the menus or use... More

We had a delicious two course lunch with wine tasting on the terrace. The wines are amazing. The Michelin star rating was evident in our fabulous and beautifully presented meal. Beautiful Tuscan setting.

Description
It is actually very easy to cook well and obtain great dishes if one begins with first choice ingredients, that's what we do every day, searching for the best products is our philosophy.
We are mentioned by the most authoritative Guides with excellent evaluations.The restaurant is housed in the old lemon house with a glass and wrought-iron conservatory, overlooking the outside dining terrace with its ancient fishpond and rose-clad pergola. It is famous for its cuisine focused in the territory. A pleasant experience made of many different details: a refined and bright ambience, the terrace with its breathtaking view of the valley for romantic dinners, a superb Tuscan cuisine and a vast wine list with the Baracchi wines as well.
