It was almost innocently located off the main street in Cortona, and my buddy who is local to the region had nonchalantly drifted towards Pozzo Antico so unsuspectingly, that I had no expectations or knowledge of what was to come. We were seated in a small internal courtyard which seemed simple and idyllic, and accompanied with good and homely hospitality... More

Its been a few years but I have eaten in this fine restaurant the does belong on the top five in Cortona. The problem with Marf16 review on May 29, 2014 is nothing more then the map on tripadvisor is wrong, if he followed the map he did not eat at this restaurant. It is located in Cortona.

One of the best Tuscan Restaurants in Tuscany. I had the Veal w/Porcini mushrooms and it was incredible. Paola was very attentive to our needs and she is a great host. The patio area had a very nice ambiance that complimented our dining experience. We come here every chance we get even though the drive from Passignano is a bit... More

Paolo and her staff made this our favorite restaurant in Cortona! We were treated like family. The food was superb, especially the pasta with the spicy bacon sauce. My daughter and I took the cooking class as well. What a feast! You must try this place.

We had visited this restaurant last year and loved the meal. Upon talking to the owner, Paola, we found out they have a one day cooking school. We returned to Cortona this year and had the opportunity to take the class with Simone and Paola. It was so much fun and educational. We learned many tips, made dough for pizza,... More

What is Tripadvisor playing at by including this restaurant in the wrong town?! This is miles north of Cortona and over an hour's drive. Very disappointing as completely useless to someone wanting to eat in Cortona - and unfair on the local restaurants which get pushed down the ratings as a result.

Dear Marf16, Reading your review on trip advisor i think you make a little confusion... our restaurant is in the historical center of Cortona, in Via Ghini 14, one block from Piazza della Repubblica, the main piazza in Cortona, with clock's tower... probably you make confusion with another restaurant! Next time we wait you in the right place! ;-) All... More

We stumbled onto this restaurant while strolling through the ancient alleyways of Cortona. Cortona is blessed with many beautiful restaurants, this one being among the best, if not, THE best! Wonderful wine selection, priced reasonably, and a menu with an appropriate number of choices...not so many that it takes our wives 30 mins. to make a decision! I had the... More

Cortona is blessed with an abundance of restaurants and it is very hard to name one which truly satisfies on all levels - however, if hard pressed to name a restaurant which consistently makes my mouth water with each dish, it would definitely be Locanda al Pozzo Antico. What a treat to have 3 generations of one family all working... More

I loved the colorful decor and dinnerware, and the food was delicious. The hostess even offers reasonably priced cooking classes.
