“Beautiful panoramic views”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here for lunch and enjoyed the amazing panoramic views from the outside terrace. Delicious local food with the great addition of an outside BBQ set up for the month of August. Restaurant is attached to a pleasant modern hotel. Has excellent marble bathrooms and a beautiful inside restaurant terrace for the winter. Highly recommended.

“Scenic restaurant in Cortona”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Tonino has excellent views both from the terrace and the beautifully appointed rooms below. Our food was very good but the first person to serve us was not pleasant at all. We were handed menus which listed pizzas and as I had not had one for a long time I chose that. However, on her return this waitress said (as if we should have known) that pizzas are not served at lunchtime. It would be useful to have been told that or have had it written on the menu. We then hurriedly made a choice of 3 salads and 1 pasta. We didn't want to linger too long as although we live not far away, we had overseas guests with us and wanted them to explore the town. We waited a long tie and people who had come in after us were served before us. Eventually we attracted the attention of an excellent waiter who served us very well. The waitress we had with blonde hair should not be in a service industry with an attitude problem. I think she just thought we were tourists but even so, that is not a nice way to behave.

“Best view in town”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

There are more popular restaurants in Cortona. But Tonino has an amazing view, two wide and comfortable terraces overlooking endless green fields of Tuscany. Food was alright, our servers were polite and wine was incredibly cheap (Montepulciano).
I think this the place for some special family dinners or large groups...

“Rushed”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Have been twice to this restaurant , whilst it has a view to die for and the food is excellent, we were rushed. We had the 8 course tasting menu which was delicious, but, they were bringing out the next course before we had finished our last!

Felt uncomfortable.
