The owners of Bar 500 in Cortona serve tasty italian food and wine. They were very kind and always in for a chat or some advice. Advantage is that they serve their food the whole day, even for "take-away". It is a small but nice restaurant in the main street of Cortona. Check it out yourself!

We have been visiting Cortona for the last few years and our favourite Bar is def Bar 500.
The food is great and always fresh and beautifully presented. Emma and Rob are excellent hosts and extend a warm welcome to all. It is a delight to dine at Bar 500. Nothing is too much trouble and Emma and Rob will alway take time to chat with their customers, which I think is really lovely. Cortona would not be the same without this Bar! You just need to read the reviews to see how well this business is run. Owners who really care about quality and service. Looking forward to my next visit.

We found this little gem by pure chance. What a find. Interesting menu, not solely Italian but with an international flavour. We ate here several times for lunch and dinner during our Cortona stay and were treated like friends and made so very welcome. Our experience was one of relaxation with no hurrying glances by the lovely staff. Would highly recommend on a visit to beautiful Cortona.

My husband and I spent 10 days in Cortona, we ended up eating 3 meals at Bar 500. The food was great, the service excellent and the owners are present. We had delicious Brushetta.
Each piece of toast was piled high with the tomatoe basil mixture. We also shared a panini which was fresh, hot and tasty. Today we enjoyed a vegitarian pizza. We are not vegitarians, however it sounded so good we had to try. Fabulous , covered in sauteed peppers, egplant and squash with motzerella and tomatoe sauce. Whether you are looking for a light snack, lunch or dinner I highly recommend this restaraunt right in the heart of Cortona.

My family and I have travelled through most of Tuscany's wonderful hilltop towns over the years and eaten fantastic food. But we were all blown away by how marvellous Bar 500 Cortona is. Generous portions, very friendly helpful staff, great atmosphere. Our first stop in Cortona next time we visit. In a word, FANTASTICO!
