A fantastic meal in fourteenth century courtyard of old palace.

such a great meal in an historic place with great ambience and food. You can also stay here. The service was attentive and friendly and the food very good for vegetarians and vegans. We ate inside the tower, with the sky above us, but you can also eat indoors.

First of all, we had an outstanding service. The people were very friendly and although the majority didn't speak English, they did everything to serve you. And also the food was very nice. Great antipasti and very nice meat dishes with excellent site dishes. The only attention point: it was a bit too salty especially if you usually don't use... More

We ate at this restaurant on our first and last night in Cortona so had the experience of eating inside next to the lovely old well on the first night, and outside on the small terraced area on our second visit. On our second visit, an older gentleman (who I'm assuming is the owner) recognised us and was extremely friendly... More

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
