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

During our week stay in Cortona (5 adults), this was the only restaurant we chose to eat at more than once. It's a lovely family run restaurant. From fresh-baked bread to homemade pasta to outstanding steaks, we enjoyed every visit. We ate inside once because it was raining, and then in the courtyard when the weather was nice.

We have had several meals and stayed at this lovely palazzo hotel and restaurant in the past three years. It never fails to impress with the excellent service and great food; much of which is down to Paola and her family who run the place. We had three visits to al Pozzo this year and the last was the best.... More

We visited this restaurant one evening in August with our three children. We sat in a small courtyard which was really lovely. The food and wine were both excellent. We had the fondue, which was very tasty, followed by pasta. The menu was varied and had plenty of choice for everyone. The service was excellent - friendly and helpful. All... More
