We have eaten dinner twice at this fabulous restaurant nestled in a quiet, wooded area close to Cortona. The ambiance is exquisite, with only a dozen or so candle-lit tables surrounding the pool area of this cozy relais. The menu changes with the season, and the chef displays both artistry and culinary skill. The wine list is varied and shows... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Relais Le Corte dei Papi in May this year. David was a wonderful host and made our stay really enjoyable. The food was really excellent and service brilliant. The grounds of the hotel are well maintained and the hotel is in a lovely setting, close to many interesting places to visit.

The property was beautiful and exquisitely maintained. The food, service and the setting were all exceptional. David and the entire staff went out of their way to make us feel... More

Just dined a Le Corte dei Pape. Everything in the reviews on trip advisor is true and consistent with my experience. David is a master host and the dinning experience was by far the best value I have experienced so far in Europe. If you are in Cortona, make this a stop for dinner, it will be will worth it.

David was very gracious and sincere about making sure every aspect of our stay was met. The property is beautiful and well maintained - a very welcoming and comfortable villa. The food was absolutely wonderful and we... More

We have been fortunate to be 5* travellers all over the world for many years. Although not staying at La corte del Papi we were advised to go for dinner. Stunning! The quality of food and service offered by David and his team over dinner is truly outstanding and is up there with the best. Guide Michelin should take note.... More

We stayed here for a couple of days on a trip around Europe and I'm very glad we did. David was a superb host and couldn't do enough to make our stay more enjoyable. The room was a little small but more than made up for it in character. The meals were superb and David's choices of wine were spot... More

We stayed here for the fifth time, so now it's certainly the time to write this review! In the meantime La Corte dei Papi feels like a second home for us. Davide feels like a brother and Gabriela like our second mother. The last time we came with the whole family (our 2 children, my mother in law and my... More
