This place was recommended by our villa owner and we couldn't get in without a reservation on arrival so we booked for the following evening. The dining area and decor were pleasant and the service friendly. The fillet steak dish was divine. Very soft tender meat medium cooked. Best steak I'd had in ages and very reasonably priced. I was... More

if your travels take you to Cortona, in the valley below is Canta Napoli, a superb seafood restaurant just north of the town of Camucia. We had a memorable lunch here on 18 June 2014. It's unusual to find excellent seafood this far inland, so this restaurant owned by 2 Neapolitan brothers should get every seafood lover's attention. The shellfish... More

The wait staff is fast and very friendly! We ate at this restaurant the first night we arrived in Cortona, when we were extremely tired and felt a little restored after a great experience at Canta Napoli. We liked it so much that we returned another night before leaving Cortona. We had pizzas, salads and great house Chianti house wine... More

we loved this restaurant which was recommended to us by La Mucchia casa vacanze owners, the fish we ate was delicious, we started with cozze alla malfitana (I hope I spell it right) we continued with polpo with potatoes, and this is traditional local dish, which we loved very much, and we had for the Finale, the Baba, it is...

It’s so amazing to have such good seafood in the hill towns. The grilled seafood is so good that we do our second visit immediately day after. And the price is also extremely friendly & you should not miss that if you’re around Cortona.

It does not look like much from the outside but GO IN. Make reservations because it fills up, even on week days. We had Mussels and Pepper Clams as 'firsts'. We know our shell fish and these were both fantastic. Seconds were Mixed Grill and Sea Bream, both flavorful and happiness inspiring. Desserts, Mousse, Rum Soaked Pear and coffee. Yum.... More

Make reservations!!!! Everything from the fried seafood antipasto, to the paccheri with fresh clams, prawns, and calamari was absolutely delicious . Finishing off with their pizzas and ricotta pie. Great food and drink for a reasonable price .

By a local we got the advice to go to Canta Napoli in Camucia on the road to Cortona. Expecting nothing, we were surprised to find an excellent restaurant with 'very fast' waiters and delicious dishes. Everything was good, even the company of the others guests we got into conversation with. The interior is a bit outdated, but the food... More
