“The best Italian food we ate in Tuscany and Rome”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We had dinner outside at this restaurant after cycling 44 miles. All the food was exceptional. Very fresh tasting and presented beautifully. The service was excellent. The family was very friendly and the toast of grappa at the end of the meal was something that I will never forget. We even go to watch the family cat, Stella, peek out her little window from their upstairs living quarters. I would recommend this place to all of my friends.

“Clarke's Anniversary”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We were staying just outside Cortona and wanted to find somewhere special to celebrate my Brother and his wife's 258th wedding anniversary. On the recommendation of the local travel agent and having read the reviews on tripadvisor we booked this restaurant. We were not disappointed. The owner was fantastic and made sure the evening was special. The food was lovely and we all felt really relaxed. We tend to be a bit noisy and were a bit worried that we might feel a bit inhibited in such a cosy place but the owner made sure we were able to enjoy ourselves. I would strongly recommend you eat at this restaurant.

“Go for the atmosphere, the host, the food”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Stopped in for lunch while in Cortona, the place looks like it was an old wine cellar or something. Old cave like interior, very old and cozy, if not tight a little. Worth the visit for the food and the interior views, very unique and the food was very good and the owner is very personable and quite a character. Didn't have the time to enjoy their dinners but we enjoyed our lunch. Of course, just order the house wine, it's all good in Italy.

“Romantic, authentic italian feel”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We had dinner here on our last night in Cortona. The food was excellent. The owner and his wife were very friendly and more than generous with a complimentary cheese appetizer, biscotti, and then grappa at the end of the meal. Maybe a little bit too much with the second serving of grappa :)

There was a wedding reception going on in the main room while we were there so we benefited from the music that was being played. And even with the large reception party, we still received excellent service.
