A Romantic, Authentic, Italian Dining Experience - Delicious!

An authentic and charming experience every time. We stayed at Borgo Il Melone for three nights (a hotel within walking distance) and honestly, this restaurant MADE our trip. We ended up eating at the restaurant four times in three days (twice for lunch, twice for dinner)! We had the lobster pasta... read more

I have reviewd this restaurant before but I returned on February 17, 2015 with a friend of mine and it was his first time in Italy. The seafood is excellent, always fresh and creative. The marinated cold seafood appetiser is really good, as are the steamed clams abd mussels. Our entree or "secondi", a mixed seafood grille was superb, cooked... More

Our group arrived at Canta Napoli and I knew as I was in for a magnificent seafood feast as this would be my third visit to this wonderful restaurant. I'm prompted now to write a review because our dinner was completely "over the top". The fresh fish, mussels and seafood pasta simply cannot be found in many restaurants in Italy.... More

A friend took me to this restaurant, and what a surprise it was! I have rarely come across a restaurant that good and tasty. Fish is their specialty and it was truly truly good (Carapaccio of swordfish and a grilled Tuna steak). But also their pizza's are excellent. The atmosphere is homely thanks to the super friendly staff. I will... More

We went here twice during our stay in Cortona and the pizza was to die for! It's authentic Neapolitan and one of the best we had. The food for the price was an unreal value. We'd go back if we're in the area again!

A story: the first time we went to Cantanapoli (a.k.a. Canta Napoli), we met a man and women; he had come from Perugia (38 km away) and she from Siena (100+ km away) to meet at Cantanapoli and have a pizza and a full dinner with it. We think of a pizzeria and downscale - like eating in a bowling... More

Very popular restaurant so make sure to make reservations (Especially busy on Saturday and Sunday nights). The restaurant is on the small side and very quaint. Many locals eat there too. The seafood was delicious and very fresh. It's a must if you are in Cortona

Walked there from Borgo Il Melone. Typical Italian atmosphere, with great food, service and atmosphere. Make sure you book, as we went on a Sunday evening and it was very busy. The hotel booked it for us.

This was a recommendation by our hosts and have to say delicious. Good job they booked for us as was uber busy. I had the clams and mussels to start, very simple but such good timing. My wife had the gratin of scallop which could of come out of the grill a minute earlier as just over. I then had... More

The food was okay. The server made mistake after mistake after mistake. We never actually got several of the things we ordered. Wouldn't come back.
