I can’t quite say enough about this incredible place! Not just favorite food in Cortona but best food we had in Italy. This is a must stop if in Tuscany. Loved the service and ambience! Only open Fri-Sun in off season so make a reservation
Dined here at a table outside, overlooking the Val di Chiana at sunset. Very romantic! Our host was attentive and helpful. The food was bistro style & freshly prepared by his wife, and was absolutely delicious. She is a talented chef!
Unbelievable decor and honest food, everything homedmade !
Owner is extremely friendly and creative.
The menu list is not so large bur everything is fresh.
Wine list is extensive at very reasonable prices !
Italy as it should be !
Wow! The food is simply amazing and there's a really great selection of both traditional and non-traditional dishes. The wine list is very extensive too. The host is very friendly and welcoming and there's a great view from the outside tables. I'd come back to...Cortona just to visit this restaurant again.More
This is such a quirky little place, the decor is unbelievably creative and special and the food is wonderful - not a huge menu, but between our party of 9 we tried most things and without exception it was brilliant. The owner and his wife...(the chef) were charming. Gutted we found this on the last night of our holiday!! Reason enough to come back to Cortona - seriously.More
The food is incredible! It is created with wonderful care, idea and taste!
We loved it so much we came back the next day!!
The staff is great and efficace. The owner and his wife (who is the fantastic cook) are extremely attentive to the...clients and are very nice!
Everybody seem to be doing their job with passion and to love it!
The place is done with great care and taste as well.
Nothing is left aside!
As food lovers, we recommend it with all our hearts!!
Do not miss it!More
I visited and rated this restaurant several years ago and it was terrific. It quickly became number one until this past spring when it received a few very bad reviews that came in together. I just had a chance to spend two months in Italy...so decided to see for myself. I can tell you it is still the best cortona has to offer. From the minutes you walk in the door you feel like a guest in their home. It gets better. The service, the food, the ambiance, the cleanliness, all rated number one. This restaurant definitely has not slipped. They should be number one.More
We stumbled across this little Bistrot one night in Cortona when we had looked around and seen the more traditional places but wanted something a little different. It is just up a small slope opposite Piazza Garibaldi and a real find. Eclectic mixture of chairs...and tables for dining at plus a few tables outside with a great view of the surrounding countryside. An open kitchen shows the owners wife, who is head chef, working and the food is just lovely - flavours, presentation, everything. All seasonal and local but a more modern style than some of the more traditional places. Well worth checking it out.More
