We allure you with our elegant and stunning atmosphere but the food is why you won't want to leave! Traditional and seasonal dishes here mix with innovative and exiting ideas. Everything we do originates from the personal passion of the owner and the cook! Starting from the variety of game to fresh truffle. From the home made pasta to the home made cakes.

Nice spot, across from the theater with a little of everything

We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed a delicious meal of typical tuscany fare. Everyone around us seem to be eating something with porcini mushrooms. The house red wine was a Syrah, very good. We enjoyed the bruschetta and salads. Pasta was very good, though venison was ok, not memorable... read more

We came here as our son had picked it. A bit worried since reviews were not all quite positive. However, this restaurant has been the suprise of our holiday. Excellent anti pasti, so big, we were happy we took only one to share. Perfect combinations, new flavours and nicely presented. After that pasta with truffle and risotto with nuts and... More

Not a great experience in Cortona. Also not bad but expectations were for something nicer. Pasta was okay and risotto al prosseco was really bad. Service is not friendly at all, specially the french young lady. Location is very good, antpasti was nice. Overall dissapointed.

We ate here twice and each time it was so delicious and different. We had lunch with wine, pheasant appetizers, wild boar sausage, and a charcuterie board which was one delicious surprise after another. Dinner was amazing, we ate in the wine cellar , it was romantic and beautiful. The owners reconstructed the building interior and created a dining ambience... More

Our daughter wanted to return to Nessun Dorma this holiday as it's very pleasant outside in the piazza signorelli in Cortona in the shade. Especially lunch or afternoon. We had been last year. Also we had enjoyed some long chilled coffee drinks. Unfortunately things seemed slower this year than last maybe because the lady of the house wasn't around. The... More

I love food. Really love food. And I love Italian food. I can honestly say, the truffle ravioli here is one of the best dishes of food I have ever had. I cannot recommend it more. I came here one night and immediately brought 8 other people here the next night for us all to order the raviolis. We had... More

The food at this place is actually pretty good, but that can't redeem the service. 90 minutes between courses is not relaxed service, it's just hopelessly slow. Under-staffed without a clue who ordered what between different tables. When our mains arrived we had lost the will to live, after having turned up 2 hours earlier. The people have no idea... More

Very quiet at this time of year but really good food! Can't wait to go back to Cortona just for the food here! The Porcini funghi risotto with apple and walnut was divine!

Slow service but staff lovely. The food however was amazing and well worth the wait! I had the fillet steak cooked in red wine which melted in the mouth, and my husband had Tagliata which he said was the best ever!!! You will not be disappointed!

Pretty little restaurant with a nice deck to watch the world go by. The tables are attractive with their purple and beige napkins and glasses. The owner and waitress are friendly but the service was rather slow on the evening of our visit. Our fellow diners were mainly tourists like ourselves with just one local family dining outside. Starters were... More
