Nice dinner

Once again we hoped to dine al fresco and we found this place with no reservation. Not too many people on the terrace that night so we got a nice table. Very friendly and attentive staff, good food and nice ambience. Great evening.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel staff. The owner Paola, is lovely. Very friendly and accommodating. She also gives cooking lessons, for those who are interested. We ate in a lovely courtyard. There were a mixture of diners, fellow Brits, Americans, a young German family and Italians. We were all treated like old friends. The waitress didn't speak... More

This place is a treasure! Stumbled upon it with no reservation - nearly always a must in Cortona especially on weekends. We were the only non Italians in there which is always a good sign. The special of the day (beef cooked in a red wine and black pepper sauce) was outstanding! The staff are very attentive and the atmosphere... More

We went as a large group for dinner with about 20 of us seated at 2 long tables in a separate room. The acoustics in the room meant that it was very noisy and difficult to hear. Aside from that criticism, we all enjoyed the food and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

We were welcomed warmly and escorted through the restaurant into the courtyard where we enjoyed an excellent meal. The local Cortona wine was good and the food was superb.There is a wide and varied menu lovingly prepared by Paola who is very happy to answer any questions you may have concerning the food. We were extremely happy with our choices,... More

First, Cortona is one of the most wonderful towns in Italy, and perhaps in the world. Second, put this Locanda al Pozzo Antico at the top of your list when you visit Cortona. Lunch or dinner, it is terrific. The owners attended to us personally both times we dined with them, and they treated our family of six (our kids... More

We had lunch here on one of our 7 days in Cortona and we rate this the best of the bunch. You are really spoiled for choice in Cortona with so many really good restaurants (in Florence now and have yet to find any to compare). Food is fantastic - fresh ingredients all cooked to perfection. Service is also great... More

What a wonderful evening and end to the day. Fantastic service, wonderful hosts and beautiful food. One of our sons is gluten free and nothing was too much trouble to accommodate him. We will be back!

I have had two wonderful lunches at this restaurant over the past two years. Each time I arrived before the restaurant had officially opened (typical American tourist hungry at noon), asked for dishes not on the menu, and was served just what I wanted. Since this restaurant is off the "main drag" of Cortona restaurants, it was much quieter and... More

We went here on our recent vacation since it was listed in Rick Steve's book on Italy. We had his little book of Italian sayings out when we visited, and Paola had told us that he was just there two weeks prior to our visit. We have to say that we completely agree with Rick's recommendation, and that Paola and... More
