Enjoyed a coffee here earlier in the week, and returned again today for lunch. Can recommend the insalata con feta, and my companion's insalata Buongustaio was completely finished so must have been good! Friendly staff.

The service. SO friendly. Fantastic location and the food was delicious. I had a salad starter and tortellini main. With local wine. And lots of bread. Very satisfying and priced far better than the more expensive choices across the square. I dined in the courtyard as it was a windy evening. But atmosphere mall the same. Really nice. Five stars.

Wonderful experience at this cafe with both good and service! We enjoyed an afternoon aperitivo, which included any drink on the menu and a gluten-free assortment of meats, cheese, potato chips, and different breads. We also enjoyed the gluten-free tiramisu. This was such a good experience since aperitivo is a part of the culture here that is nice to enjoy.... More

Friendly little place in a beautiful courtyard. Good for a coffee pause, or for a light lunch. Very friendly staff, good coffee.

I've been there many times for aperitibvo and it was always fine, but it was for my borther's wedding that we had the perfect location; the food was really good and the staff perfect with us.

Had a wonderful taglierone at caffe dell corte. Enjoyed the courtyard at lunchtime. The potato bread and fried gnocchi served in paper bags with the taglierone were very good as was the cheese and salamis and tuscan ham.

We met with some local friends for lunch on a very very hot Saturday afternoon. We selected Il Caffe' della Corte because of the outside dining in the quiet courtyard setting. Plus they have a number of lovely mixed platter dishes on the menu too. We ordered the seafood, mixed meats and roasted vegetable platters with a number cool beers.... More

This is a delightful restaurant situated in a tucked away courtyard. It is very atmospheric with good food and wine and charming staff. Although quite tricky to find from one side, from the Strada Maggiore entrance Corte Isolani is quite well signed. Well worth a visit.

We ordered gluten free lasagne for our coeliac son, our daughter had a "normal" lasagne. The contrast was shameful. The gluten free version looked like a leftover from last week, the edges dried and crispy. We could clearly hear the microwave pinging as the individual dishes were heated up. We had extremely good gluten free food in Italy, but this... More

Thank you Sir for your witness. You are right, the "normal"lasagne and the gluten free lasagna are very very different. They are produced by different "pasta factory". As the menù informs, the gluten free lasagna is produced by "La Spiga Amica". As the menù informs, it is an artigianal frozen lasagna. We use an exclusive microwaves horn to warm it.... More
