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

We ate here one night back in May in the outdoor courtyard. We liked it so much that we made a reservation for the next night. Great food and great wine! We were fortunate both nights you have Paola's husband serve us. He was a great host.
