Once upon a time there was a very old mill. Today it is a charming Locanda with a special typical Tuscan Restaurant, completely renovated by Silvia and Riccardo Baracchi, owners too of “Relais & Châteaux Il Falconiere”. A heaven of tranquillity and elegance, in the middle of the Cortona countryside, a land famous for its culture, cuisine, and great wines. The style of cuisine inside the Locanda is simple and genuine, but never ordinary.

Nice place

I didn't enjoy the fritto as much as everyone said I would - it was too doughy for my taste - but the ambience and company made up for it.

They have an amazing terrace out the back which has a stream running along side it. Amazingly relaxing and lovely atmosphere. Great wait staff (very smiley). Food was superb, we had beef fillet and it was superb. They have their own vineyard and so we drunk their brand of wine and it was very good. We actually bought a bottle... More

This is a fantastic restaurant recommended by the hotel Il Falconiere, where we stayed. Hidden away in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Everything was absolutely amazing, food, wine and ambience.

We got to the restaurant a bit early for dinner, but Paula was very welcoming and aranged a table for 12 without thinking twice. The food was excellent. Fresh, tasty and with the best product. But the service is what made the experience the best. We had some car trouble, and Paula went out of her way to help- making... More

The restaurant makes a great impression but the food that was recommended to us so much, has not been one of the best, as the service has been quite enough.

We ate at Locanda del Molino last Saturday night. It was to be a celebratory dinner for my parents and with such good reviews we were greatly looking forward to it. We took a taxi from Cortona (40 euros return) and 15 minutes later drew up at such an unprepossessing roadside restaurant we were sure he had taken us to... More

Recommended to us by Chef Gabriella from our hotel in Cortona. The service was great and the meal was very very good. It is a BYOB but they do offer their own local wine which was very good as well. Try the pasta with rabbit ragu!! As a side the restaurant was nice enough to contact our hotel and drop... More

We were staying at a hotel nearby and asked for recommendations on where to eat and were not disappointed by being recommended Locanda Del Molino. Though a lovely building, from the outside you may not appreciate the wonderful restaurant and cuisine inside. We were warmly greeted by the owners and made to feel welcome from the off. Great pride is... More
