We had a fantastic evening with a private (just us) cooking class with chef Cristiano. Very intimate, incredible food and more hands-on than any previous class we've been to. The taxi dropped us at the wrong location, so chef Cristiano came in person to pick us up. Dedication above and beyond & love for the art. Will come back, and would recommend dearly!

Dear Kalle, I am very glad you attended the cooking class @Locandaigrfi yesterday. And I am so happy, after reading your kind review, that you had really appreciated the lesson and the dinner the follwed it. You have tourned out to be to great chefs, very skilfull that have prepared the tasty handamade pici pasta and its ragout sauce, the zuchini soufflè and the creamy tiramisù! I feel lucky when guests of mine are so eager to learn the secrets of Italian and Tuscan cooking. I really do hope you will come back to Locanda next time you are in Cortona. Thank you again for recommending the lesson and the restaurant ! Arrivederci! Cristiano Milighetti Chef&Owner

We visited here last year when doing a train tour of Italy. Enjoyed it so much we came back. Nothing is too much for Davide. He really makes you welcome and is a constant help to ensure you enjoy your stay. The setting is stunning and the rooms very comfortable. We ate there several times. The food was good, although the meat of one meal was tough, but when we raised it we were offered a replacement dish. Opposite is a cafe which is also very friendly and Cortona is stunning.

We stayed for four nights at Locanda i Grifi. The hotel was comfortable with lovely scenery. The staff was very friendly and helpful especially Davide who helped us with planning out visits both in Cortona and villages nearby. The owner of the hotel and also the chef Cristiano made tasteful dinners at his restaurant. Local wines matched well with the food.

We stayed at this charming hotel in June 2018. They had the best showers here of all the places we stayed in our 3 week vacation to Italy. Besides the showers - our morning latte's delivered to our room was heavenly. Also when we were there we had a cooking class with Cristiano. He was informative, along with working with 10 of us with all levels of cooking experience. The staff at this hotel seeks to make everyone comfortable, we will be back!

Dear Chris, Thank you for your kind review. We are so glad you have had a great time with us; and we did enjoy too having a chat every morning before you all went out for the tours with your friends. We do our best providing our service to the hotel and restaurant guests, our housekeeping always takes care of the cleaness of the rooms and bathroom ( and showers too). The bathrooms, the rooms, and the other areas of the hotel and restaurant as well, had been recently renewed. The latte and the capuccino that our room service brought to your room every morning are made with Tuscan fresh milk and an organic Italian coffee, we are so glad you have appreciated it. It was a great pleasure having had your group of 10 people for the cooking class with Chef Cristiano Milighetti in our restaurant; it was a grea fun also for the chef teaching you how to prepare the typical Tuscan recipies. We really do hope you will come back to visit us in the future. Locanda will always be your home in Tuscany. Grazie mille!! Kindest regards Davide Arca Reception&Reservations
