As far as the experience goes, the interior is lovely, but the owner was a bit too loud and over the top. Nothing was especially wrong with the food at dinner, but nothing was especially great, either. After a 2 week stay in Italy, primarily in Umbria and Tuscany, I rank this meal as somewhere in the middle of the... More

The place is very small, it only has a handful of tables. The place is very nice, stone walls and wine display are set all around the dining area. The wine selection is very broad, with lots of choices both from local wineries and from some of the best areas in Tuscany: Montepulciano, Montalcino, Chianti are well represented, as are... More

Had a lovely experience here. Tried the taster menu which was very reasonably priced, we hadn't booked but they managed to fit us in (recommend u book to avoid disappointment). Food , wine and ambience was great will definately plan a return visit.

Great service, delicious food, the best Zuppa Inglese dessert (italian pudding) we have ever had. All in all recommend this restaurant.

love this place, the food was phenomenal as was the overall experience. Mr. Romano and his family treated us like royalty. Really enjoyed the "big" ravioli, the antipasto and the beef. The wines were great as well. Can't recommend this place enough.

If you are in the Cortona area, you must go to this restaurant. The owner is very nice and friendly. His wife is the chef. It was so nice visiting with them. The bread salad and Wild Boar sauce with pasta is wonderful! I have been to this restaurant twice and hope to go again. I highly recommend this great... More

Wonderful food, amazing hospitality and enchanting atmosphere - a MUST if you are in Cortona!! I had the Fettucini with Wild Boar.. simply devine. The wine we had was grand. Everything about it was authentic Italian - just as I was hoping for.

The quality of food was good, but I prefer a quieter, less invasive service. I ordered the tartare and it was chopped "a coltello" but it was a bit too chunky for my taste. Numerous tourists.

We read about this restaurant on Trip Advisor and had to try it. It was excellent. The food was out of this world, the owner is very pleasant and the service was excellent. Would definitely go back.
