We visited Locanda al Pozzo Antico based on a recommendation from Rick Steves. We were seated in a charming courtyard and both ordered the Pici al Fumo, a Cortona specialty. While waiting for our meal, we conversed with Paola, the very social owner of the restaurant, who also prepared a "kid's pasta" for our young daughter. This was a wonderful... More

We ate at this restaurant this evening. What a deliciously authentic Italian meal! The owners are proud of the meals they serve - we could see this at our table and at others. Very good and reasonably priced wine list. It is by far one of the best dinners we have had in Cortona. Highly recommend it! We definitely will... More

we booked and just as well. Busy. Good menu, excellent food and good wine at a very reasonable price. Service relaxed, and very flexible. Wanted to please. Unfortunately did not have enough time in Cortona to return for a second time!

Outstanding meal and friendly service. The small courtyard is lovely to sit for dinner. Dinner is not a quick event in Italy, here each course has time to digest before the next arrived. Be prepared to have time to enjoy your dinner companions. I brought a notebook and a bag of colored pens to dinner every night so my 7... More

Fabulous dinner! My wife and I visited here on our first night in Cortona. House red, bruschette, and two pastas; one with wild boar ragu, and one with truffles (tartufo). Amazing, especially the truffle pasta, was delicious. Staff was very friendly and restraint was quaint with exactly the charming atmosphere you expect in Cortona.

Authentic italian cuisine, "la mamma" comes to your table and makes the best suggestion for you! Children are treated like princesses and get the best food! Nothing bad to say about this restaurant! I would certainly go back

Pozzo Antico was recommended by the owner of the B&B where we stayed. We liked it so much we ate here twice during our one-week stay in Cortona and might have gone even more if we had tried it sooner. This is a family-run ristorante and Paola, the owner and chef, has her finger on the pulse of every aspect... More

Paula is always producing wonderful meals. We had the the chicken al marsala and a wonderful fresh grilled Chianina sausage. Both were very delicate and perfect.

This was probably the best meal I had in Cortona, Rustic yet a little more refined than most. Had pasta with a delicious wild-boar ragu, Slow roasted pork with fried artichokes and an amazing warm chocolate type cake. Nice wine selection. My only suggestion would be to not sit single diners right by the door on a cold night -... More
