We loved our stay at Relais La Corte dei Papi. The staff were so attentive, professional and kind. Both dinner and breakfast were fantastic. The rooms are very unique and charming. The resort is like a postcard and their wedding venue is dreamy.

We came to the restaurant looking for quality Italian cuisine in a nice atmosphere. We were welcome by a cold, non atmospheric garden restaurant with only 5 tables barely set. Food was average, more french than Italian menu and very very small portions. Worst was...the lack of atmosphere in the restaurant. So many charming places around Cortona. Felt like a wasted evening Avoid!More

We just returned to David’s beautiful relais for the third time in the past 10 years and again thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful setting, our spacious and elegant room, and the excellent food, wine and service in their dining room. David and his team are caring,...attentive to the details and have a clear appreciation of hospitality. We already look forward to our next visit.More

We stayed at Relais La Corte Dei Papi 11/20-22. Our room with the steam shower and jacuzzi was extremely nice! We had French doors that led out to a nice “porch” with a table. We sat out there with our friends and drank a couple...glasses of wine. The bed was very comfortable and the owner was extremely nice. We ate dinner there our first night. 2 of us had fish and it was cooked perfectly and delicious! Their Prosecco was so good we bought some to take home! Breakfast was equally good and included mimosas if you so desired! We would go back for sure!More

We stayed here for 3 nights during a wedding held locally. The hotel itself is in a beautiful setting but it is way over priced for what you get. There are nicer hotels in the town or even nearby. The spa rooms have a gigantic...spa tub and spa shower. We could never get the spa shower to work and there were no instructions. On the third day there was a wedding in the hotel which meant the restaurant was closed without any notice. In addition the music from the wedding blared until 2 am. And the internet was down all day. Definitely ask if a wedding is taking place before you book! The owner was uncompromising in terms of refunding partial cost of the room but did comp our charcuterie meal. A lot of the positive reviews here are for the restaurant dinners but we weren’t able to sample them. Breakfast was a buffet with random service. The hotel seemed quite empty judging by the low numbers at breakfast.More

This is a first class restaurant in a beautiful historic villa.. Service was a bit slow but that is a worldwide problem at the moment . The owner was totally charming. The food was of a high standard especially the tomahawk steak. Really good experience....-More

e had the most wonderful experience at this restaurant. First, when you get there, you feel like you have gone back in time 100-200 years. It is just absolutely beautiful, breathtaking, and serene. The owner greeted us, and I cannot tell you how nice and...friendly he was. The food, and the service, were all absolutely outstanding. Venison and pecorino di pienza for starters (the pecorino with truffles is to die for). My wife and I split a Tomahawk steak that was cooked absolutely perfectly. We had a recommended sangiovese house wine that was delicious. The service, the care, the love they put into their food and their restaurant shines through. We cannot wait to go back!More

We had a lovely dinner at La Corte dei Papi. We were one of the two couples dining under the beautiful outdoor patio on a warm September evening. We dined at a leisurely pace and enjoyed every minute. We appreciated the informed wine service, and...the exceptional presentation (and tastes) of our meal. We had a seafood-themed dinner, which paired beautifully with the Umbrian Chardonnay recommended by our server. All the seafood was fresh and perfectly prepared. Our server was professional, attentive, and well informed of the region's specialties. I made our reservation for dinner well in advance, as it seemed a popular place. However, we were part of the first wave of designated "safe" tourists, and it seemed many restaurants were not fully open for guests. We felt safe and thoroughly enjoyed the lovely moonlit evening out.More

Our 2-night stay here was the best of our 11-day trip to Italy. Owner/proprietor David Papi treated us like family from the moment we arrived, even though we arrived very late the 1st night. Our suite was amazing - converted stable with the most beautiful...and comfortable furniture and steam/shower. Delicious breakfast each morning complete with sparkling wine. Do NOT miss dinner here - again, the best of our trip - the Chianina T-Bone was truly unforgettable. David waited on us himself, all the while overseeing a 30-person wedding rehearsal dinner in an adjoining dining room! We will always remember David and his staff’s genuine concern for our comfort. We look forward to returning as soon as we are able!More
