Wonderful Tuscan food. High quality wild boar and pork . Recommend Papardelle with wild boar ragu sauce. Excellent wine list. We had a very good Sangiovese at a reasonable price. Professional welcoming staff who took pride in ensuring we had a great evening. Highly recommended.

Hard to find...down the hill or up the hill but worth it. Local Tuscany wine $24 Euro is all you need to get. Homemade everything.

Don't forget the soufflé for... More

Exceptional Tuscan cuisine prepared with great pride and attention to tradition in a cozy and warm setting on a side street in Cortona. Tasting menu is also available. Attentive service and impressive selection of wines. Very affordable. So glad we stayed in town to enjoy a memorable dinner. Small group cooking classes also available if booked well in advance -...

We have had many great meals here. The best was a New Year's meal with uncountable courses. Even the Italians were full! Much wine and spoke and understood Italian perfectly by the end of the night.

My wife and I had one of our best dinner ever. The dishes are very accurate and the food is so delicious! Romano is a good host, each customer gets personal attention.

The food was very delicious but the service was not so good. Although we have booked in advance, we had to wait around 7min to be seated and 10min to get the menu.

Not bad food. Have had much better though. Have become far too busy due to TripAdvisor. Thanks and see you again Tuscany.
