I had made a reservation at this restaurant 3 weeks before our arrival in Cortona and had told Poala that this was my wife`s birthday and our wedding anniversary. The day of our arrival at 4PM in the afternoon I received a text saying that they were closed because it was their day off. When I made the reservation and... More

Yes, a major disappointment due to the poor value for money. The funghi porcini (excellent) and the pasta al tartufo (just ok) priced at € 19 and € 14 respectively but the plates were really small. Same for the antipasti (€ 9). Definitely too expensive for what it was and I bet there are several other restaurants offering better or... More

Paolo was a wonderful hostess! Her food amazing and the price too little. Recommended by a local Italian, this was the best meal of the week in Cortona. Steak prepared in ways we had not tasted before but will again. We would place it numero uno in Cortona!

We read trip advisor reviews and just had to try this out on our first night in Cortona. Simply put, there was no hint of disappointment near this meal. My husband and I both had meat dishes that were perfection and the tiramisu was wonderful. We tried the house wine and enjoyed sitting and chatting the evening away. The perfect... More

Ask for a table in the courtyard. Food great - Marsala chicken is amazing, pannacotta is a delight. Husband and wife team lovely and always so welcoming. Does offer cooking school especially good to learn pasta.

We stayed in Cortona for two weeks and ate at seven of the top restaurants as recommended by Tripadvisor. All were very good with varying degrees of specialisation, although on balance we tended to prefer the more traditional Trattoria. I had the tagliatelle al cinghiale (wild boar ragu) at most of them and was never disappointed. It is best to... More

18 of us had lunch in the courtyard. I emailed Paola to book, and let her organise a menu for us. The food was incredible, as was her hospitality. I would definitely return , a highlight of our trip

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!
