My review is based on our last evening in Tuscany on 2/8/2016. We were looking for a nice restaurant in Cortona for that evening. On our half way, climbing from the parking to the piazza of Cortona we saw a small and inviting restaurant named Birrificio Cortonese and after looking at the menu outside the kids wanted us to eat...

Delicious beer made in Cortona. 5 different home made brews to chose from and loads of bottles from around the world. 4/5* as a little pricey, but worth it for one drink if you are missing the taste of craft ale while you travel.

We went here initially because it was close to our hotel. Excellent choice. Fantastic personal service. Many varieties of beer. Would characterize this restaurant as almost a gourmet version of pub grub. We went to two higher rated restaurants and were not nearly as impressed. Regrettably, we went to one of those rather than here for a second time. Hopefully,... More

After supposedly not having a reservation at an early eatry we walked and stumbled upon this Beer bar. It is FANTASTIC!! OFF the main path of town. It is not over run by tourists. The burgers are fantastic as well as the cheese platter. They do serve wine as well. But they carry there own line of beer as well... More

Great beer, wine and food and fun people work there. Michelle is the best. She is friendly and speaks excellent English. My husband and I and three other couples spent a couple hours sitting on the patio drinking beer and having lunch. It was a perfect setting. Cortona is my favorite place in Tuscany. Loved the town and loved this... More

Birrificio Cortonese is a funky little micro-brewery with an unusual but excellent food menu. My wife and her friends had a fun lunch there recently and she convinced me to go back with her a few days later. The place is small and filled with beers from all over, but it's their own brew that is the draw. It was... More

We ate here twice during our stay in Cortona - and were not disappointed. They sell craft beer here - which is highly recommended. Lovely people behind the counter, who are very helpful. Good food at half the price of the fancier restaurants on town.

We've spent an entire evening in this place and it was amazing. The owner made us feel at home and both food and beer were incredibly tasty. We'll definitely recommend this place to everyone.
