We went for dinner and ordered an appetizer, a pasta plate, an entree and a side of grilled vegetables. Our waiter was very helpful taking our order. We were very surprised when our entree arrived first, followed quickly by the pasta and sautéed spinach. The appetizer came a few minutes later. The gal who delivered our food quickly set it...

Got there early as we had no reservation for this popular restaurant. Both of our pasta dishes were excellent. Grilled lamb was outstanding. Enjoyed the house wine. Would go back for sure.

We stopped in Saturday night for a lovely simple but thoughtfully prepared meal. A plate of tomatoes with olive oil and salt as a side, and tender juicy veal cutlet with sliced mushrooms. Magnificent! Perfect portions and good wine. We will definitely return.

We chose this for our final dinner in Cortona. The food was excellent, the ambiance great with lots of locals dining which is always a good recommendation, but the service was a bit slow. It was busy however so that's a bit of an excuse. It was enjoyable and worth a visit.

The restaurant is highly recommended by locals and doesn't disappoint. We both started with the signature fried porcini mushrooms which was reminiscent of calamare and were excellent. My wife's lamb was cooked on charcoal and was succulent. The pasta hit the spot. The restaurant was full and buzzing and the service friendly and attentive. Go there.
