Description: We allure you with our elegant and stunning atmosphere but the food is why you won't want to leave! Traditional and seasonal dishes here mix with innovative and exiting ideas. Everything we do originates from the personal passion of the owner and the cook! Starting from the variety of game to fresh truffle. From the home made pasta to the home made cakes. Even the coffee is the very best: we are the proud owners of the only traditional steam coffe-machine in the area. As Maurizio (the owner) is also a sommelier his passion spreads of course also to the wine menu. If this wasn't enough Maurizio also e enjoys making his very own spirits of which you'll find a wide selection here.

So good I'd go back to Cortona just for the meal. We ate hear on a quiet Wednesday night and it was lovely. The restaurant itself is set in a fantastic room which has been decorated modernly while keeping its originality. The service from the start was extremely friendly and attentive without being overbearing.
The menu had a great choice of local dishes all of which looked delicious. The wine menu was both reasonably price and provided a great selection of fantastic wines to suit all dishes.
From start to finish the whole meal was thoroughly enjoyable, the room, food, wine, service and ambience were all perfect.

Great menu selection w wonderful presentation. The seating is in an old cavern and the menu just gives u a glimpse of all the delicacies of the region. Go truffle crazy here. We tried eggs w truffles and spaghetti vs truffle as well as risotto w truffles. Also had the wild boar and that was plenty. So much to choose from n plen of good wines too.

We ate at Nessun Dorma on a Wednesday evening. The food was superb. We had a lovely bite before the appetizer that if given the choice, of which we could have made a meal. The polenta appetizer was wonderful, especially with the different preparations. We only had second courses, but they were also delightful, risotto and caneloni.

My wife and I 'discovered' the Nessun Dorma on a visit to Cortona in 2012. We are now staying in Cortona for four weeks. We had such fond memories of our first dining experience here that we made certain to make it the first Cortona restaurant we visited. We were not disappointed. We came back a week later for an encore. The food is marvelous and the service unequaled. The atmosphere is lovely. It really has become our favorite restaurant in Cortona and one of my favorite in Italy. I cannot imagine spending any time in Cortona without going to the Nessun Dorma for lunch or dinner.
