I'm not quite sure why the reviews for Snoopy's Gelateria are apprearing under Sotto Cortona, but it is a treat however and wherever you find it. Snoopy's Gelateria is located in Piazza Signiorelli in the heart of Cortona and it has some of the best gelato you will taste anywhere in Italy. My wife and I visit Cortona frequently and... More

This is mainly a pizzeria. The night we were there fresh fish was off the menu. It was a Friday. The alternative was deep fried frozen calamari. It was acceptable. The pizzas were under flavoured. No fresh buffalo mozzarella for one particular type of pizza. Three of us had the plain margherita pizza. My quatro stsgione was more like a... More

Eat drink and enjoy it as long as possible. You will hardly find such a place here. Amazing view and food is delicious.

The best gelato I had in Italy was at the Snoopy Gelateria. The fresh ricotta gelato and the pistachio gelato were smooth and creamy. I returned the next day for a second try of the fresh ricotta. Yummy!

We went to Sotta Cortona as a group (tour) greeted by the owner Gildo Russo. Very relaxing atmosphere with it's wood burning stove as you enter. Were served a variety of freshly made authenic Tuscany cuisine. Loved the thin crust pizza and the fried calamari.

- And outside Cortona! ... After having read the book of Francis Mayes, seen the movie, and learned how an anxient Etruscan town like Cortona - together with its boutiques, its citizens and its charm, was able to turn an existential crisis upside down and into a floring romance, a still lasting marriage and a never ending story that relates...

We stayed at an old converted monastery (no pun intended) not too far from this restaurant and passed it daily on our way up to Cortona to see the sites/sights. We figured that we would just keep driving past it, thinking that the gastronomic gems would be in the historical centre. It is a good thing that we stopped. Make... More
