The restaurant here is one of a kind, with much of the food prepared from crops grown on the grounds and wine from the vineyards surrounding the grounds. The husband and wife owners make it all the more special by being so present and so caring. The staff is careful and professional, which enhances the dining experience. The view at... More

You want romance, a beautifully decorated restaurant, a lovely location with great views and the best food all in one, then the Falconiere is for you. My husband and I wanted to try a restaurant in Tuscany that encompassed great views with great food and we got more than we bargained for. The food wasn't great it was spectacular. Our... More

Don't even think about price. You're going to spend a lot but it's worth it. Top notch, first class chef. Suggestion: Tell the waiter what you're interested in and let them pair your wine and suggest your meal. Just do it. You only live once.

We had the pleasure of discovering Restaurant Il Falconiere on our way back from Cortona. This Relais & Chateau is amazing and up to its standards. Food was perfect, service impeccable and the view from the terrace over the tuscan country was just out of this world. Worth a stop in your itinerary!

I don't understand the mixed reviews for the restaurant Il Falconnaire. On a recent trip to Tuscany we had a wonderful lunch here. We had been to Arrezzo and were on the way to Cortona and stopped here. I will say it was fortunate we had a driver as it might be a bit difficult to find as it is... More

We spent the afternoon in the spa, then enjoyed drinks on the terrace before dining on some superb food. A wonderful place to go and be spoilt for a while. The grounds are delightful, the service discreet but friendly and helpful. Eating out on the terrace dining area overlooking the valley made the experience ver romantic and special. We chose...

Very delightful food that pays homage to the area and takes you out of your comfort area (my first experience with tongue and tripe - the tongue was divine!). However, the service was clumsy and just apathetic. For instance, they forgot whole pairs of wine with the wine tasting, didn't even tell us what we were drinking after the pour,... More

We first visited this lovely restaurant 2years ago and while good,questioned whether it was MIchelin star worthy. This visit found them on top of their game. Starting with an idyllic setting with indoor or outdoor seating, (we chose outdoor)that can't be beat. Inventive appetizers like burrata stuffed zucchini flowers with a shot of Bloody Mary were delicious. Traditional homemade pici... More
