Wow .. what fun we 4 had in our cooking class with Paola, owner of Locanda Pozzo Antico. We learned to make bread dough and pasta dough .... all of which we 'stretched' to make various recipes including cantucci, dinner rolls, bruschettas, pizza, etc. Then the easy sauces to complement each which we ate for lunch. Paola made it all... More

Italy has a reputation for good food but some places stand out as better than average. Paula takes an interest in her diners as well as the food she presents. It was worth wandering down a side street to find this little gem. If you've never tried bacalau this is place to be adventurous. It was delicious. And the homemade... More

Locanda al Pozzo Antico is on a little side street not far from the Piazza Repubblico and is so worth finding. We went there twice on our week stay...all of our choices were so full of flavor. We ate so slow just to savor those flavors. They have several rooms...ask for the courtyard! They even finished the meal with a... More

A very welcoming restaurant, nothing fancy just honest good food cooked and served by lovely people. We ate in the courtyard but we have been here a few times and the dining rooms are nice as well. Varied menu and good food well presented and tastes great. We will return Paula. Thank you.

I have been to Cortona in the summer for the last four years, and Paola's restaurant (Locanda al Pozzo Antico) is the one I find myself longing for all year long when I'm home in NY. We were there for a week last month in August, and we ate there five times (both lunch and dinners). I've been to the... More

We ended up here by accident and didn't regret it ! Beautiful old house with tonnes of charm - we were seated in the courtyard which was wonderfully romantic. Good, no nonsense food, full of taste, served in a timely and professional manner. The charming lady chef even gave us a mini tour of the place after dinner !!

Food is carefully prepared, delicious, and served with style. The inner courtyard is a lovely place on a pleasant evening, and everything is done to ensure the comfort and pleasure of the diner.

As part-time residents we eat at Pozzo Antico often and recommend it without reservation. The food is imaginatively traditional Tuscan and of the highest quality. The owners, Paola and Franco, see to that, assisted by very competent staff. Paola keeps a firm hand on the kitchen, with frequent forays into the dining room when time permits, while Franco mostly sees... More

I have eaten at many restaurants in Cortona and this certainly rates as one of the better ones. We were fortunate to get a table in the outdoor courtyard which has a lovely atmosphere. Alas the little wooden chairs were not the most comfortable. I did notice only 4 such chairs and the others looked more comfortable. There are other... More
