A nice, hidden spot

A nice restaurant in Cortona, Vicolo Mancini. Not easy to find, unless you notice the sign on Via Dardano, on the left heading north from Piazza Signorelli towards Porta Colonia (more or less halfway). We have been there several times, and will be there for new year's eve. Years ago they had a... read more

I checked into my hotel and immediately walked to see if this, my favorite, restaurant was open. I had to wait 2 days but I was thrilled to see them open! I had yet another amazing meal. I just can't say enough great things about this place. The prices are great... The lovely woman who serves me is so nice... More

We really pride ourselves in finding spots off the beaten tourist track and this spot was marvelous. Serena, the waitress, was very helpful and courteous. Make sure you make the effort if want to eat authentic local food in a delightful setting within the wall city of Cortona.

Service was nice, but the food quality was quite low. We had an antipasto plate with mixed salumi and cheese and pasta with tartufo as well as with funghi porcini. We wouldn't go there another time.

This restaurant is not hard to find, but it is a little off of Cortona's beaten path. We dined here on the strength of other Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. We sat at one of the small, terraced tables across the narrow street from the entrance to the restaurant and that proved to be an excellent spot, with... More

I write this one month after we ate at La Bottega Dell'Oste. I wanted to give my thoughts time to age; I did not want to be overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of the moment. Recently we spent nineteen days in Italy, including one week in Cortona. On our last night in Cortona, seeking to get away from the areas most... More

I am surprised that I don't see more recent, positive reviews of this restaurant. We walked by during the day and the menu looked interesting and the setting really special. It is on a side road off of the Piazza Signorelli on corner with pretty tables outside and in. When we stopped to look at the menu, the staff were... More

We went there at the begining of July after visiting the beautiful Cortona, we searched many restaurants during the evening without satisfaction, finally we found out La Bottaga Dell'Oste in a corner with some interesting menus, first there were some home made local vegetables that we really wanted to have, then the pasta with porchini mushrooms that attract us.

We just loved eating here - so much we came back again! The interior is charmingly decorated and there is outside seating available. The bruschetta is the best we had on our entire trip - coming with this lovely salad with white beans. The ragu was delightiful and the porcini are very tasty. We loved the tortellini as well. Seriously... More

We had 2 very nice dinners in this restaurant. We stayed in the owners B&B (http://www.villavalenza.it/), also a very nice place. The first night we had antipasti, pasta & coniglio (rabbit) and a nice dessert. The wine they recommended us was very good indeed (Cortona Sangiovese 2008). The second night we had a simple dinner (pizza), but also very good.... More
