This is a nice Tuscan restaurant. However, it reeks of trying too hard to be edgy. It’s not as funky as it thinks it is but one thing is for certain it’s not the best restaurant in Cortona. Far from it. I’d say it’s around...30th, and this is from somebody who’s tried nearly all 50 odd!More

Ladies, Christmas Eve dinner. No one else in the restaurant. Even though the service was excellent, the food was disappointing as it was rather average and tepid at best. Would not recommend nor return. However, it is a very charming little restaurant.More

Outstanding dining experience in Cortona. Small, quaint, dining area on a side alley in the Hill Town. Impeccable service and food. Good wine selection. It was an absolute pleasure to meet Michela and to taste great authentic food from this region. Dessert was also memorable....Get a reservation and don't miss this spot!More

Fantastic dinner in Cortona. Our last night and one of the best! The staff helped us decide on one of the brunello’s to go with our dish. He offered personalized and attentive service. The chef was phenomenal! For starters, we had select dried meats then...tagliatelle noodles with bufalo cream sauce. Our main course filet and potato’s. Topped off with the best cannoli for dessert I have ever had! Grazie. Highly recommend!!More

Sartu is in the middle of the beautiful and ancient town of Cortona. Hidden down one of Cortona’s many little streets is this jewel of a restaurant rightly rated as the best restaurant in Cortona, and over the last 10 years of visits, I’ve eaten...at many. Each dish is meticulously prepared with an obvious passion for both food and cooking. In the words of the Chef & proprietor, Michella Gallerano, “ for me, preparing food is serious play - a joy “. The whole experience, from, on this occasion making our reservation through Messenger , to being greeted , served the most amazing dishes from starters to dessert was amazing , personal and unique. Although my wife enjoys a glass of wine or bubbly, I do not drink alcohol. When asked, there was no zero alcohol beer, which is fine. However, the very personable waiter , popped around the corner and found some. Awesome. A tremendous experience, wonderful food and super personable people. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough.More

Divine! What a beautiful dinner experience we had. The restaurant is small and quaint with beautiful art. The waiter was phenomenal and so proud of his craft. We loved everything he recommended, wine and all. Very reasonably priced too. Book it!

Just down the Vicolo Baldacchini, a side street of the Via Nazionale which is the main street of Cortona, is Sartù located. A very small restaurant, but with a big heart fir the local gastronomy. Very, very friendly welcome, nice interior, fine music and on...top of all a splendid kitchen. Nice dishes, well dressed and very tasteful. A great experience and a great evening!More

Sartú truly embodies what it means to be Italy. Located down a quiet sloping side street. So tiny and picturesque that if you weren't searching for it you may miss it. Apon entry you are greeted by delightful decor and artwork that could have been...handpicked from any gallery in the country. The charisma of the host was undoubtable as was the quality of the food. I got a Fillet Steak served on a bed of Himalayan Pink Salt. It was simply melt in your mouth. The a complying side of sautéed spinich was succulent and buttery. After our incredible desert we were greeted by the incredible chef Liliana who was so gracious and passionate about everything she did. She was a kind and enthusiastic woman who clearly loved what she does and this came through in her food. Couldn’t recommend the place enough.More

Highly recommended! All the dishes we tried had something very special. Everything is made by the amazing chef (pasta, butter, confits, etc), who is a local woman fully dedicated and passionate. We tried a leak flan that I can say it’s one of the best...antipasto I’ve had in Italy. The pasta with Blu Buffala formaggio was amazing, and the tagliata was so tender and delicious that we almost ordered another one. Good thing we left room for dessert: a superb ricotta with biscuit that was out of this worldMore
