This typical tuscan rest is just great. The pastas are very tasty, and the bistecca fiorentina is great. The service is personal and welcoming. Highly recommended!

We all went for a primie which were all gorgeous pasta (the chestnut potatoe and pork pasta was very good). As a secondie, one of us had the beef fillet with grape and bacon which was to... More

We've dined here 3-4 times. The first time we stayed in Cortona for a month in Sep/Oct 2011 while the second time was in Jun 2013. The food is scrumptious. Order a bottle of Champagne or Prosecco and ask to have the bottle opened by sword! We will be going back again later this year.

Great food, great wine, great staff - very reaonable prices. Ilenia and Maso (Masomillian) were 2 of the nicest wait staff I have ever come across. And not only are they lovely, they know the menu and wine list inside and out. The food here is the best I've had in Tuscany (we have visited 3 times now), and we... More

Weather has been very wet in Tuscany in early February 2014, but this restaurant made our visit in Cortona, under the Tuscan rain, very special. The restaurant was quite busy despite the weekday (Monday) and terrible weather. Ferruccio welcomed us four with kindness and care and we felt immediately in the right place. We followed the appropriate advices by Ferruccio... More

A restaurant with all the charm of Italy and then some. Interesting fare served with all the attention one expects from a place of this calibre. No better place to have a delicious and relaxing meal. The decor - well what can I say - just do not miss the WC'S when looking the place over.

I go quite often to Chef Emiliano at Osteria del Teatro. It is a very pleasant place and a very charming host. The food is always top quality and honestly is worth the price they ask. Highly recommended in the area

My husband and I recently had lunch here when we visited Cortona. I'd read some great reviews about this restaurant so we thought we should try it and we certainly weren't disappointed. Besides the food being interesting and very good, the ambiance in the restaurant is amazing. The walls are covered in photos of famous people, many of whom have... More
