It is a truism that wherever you visit, to find a restaurant that serves good unfussy food at reasonable prices, ask where the locals eat. Such a place is Dardano's. We eat there 2 or 3 times when we are in Cortona, either just a pasta or perhaps an antipasti as well, a mezzo litro of house red and the world seems a much better place.

A great place to have a wonderful meal it is worth a bit of a wait to get in when it is busy. There were six of us and they fit us in a cozy table where we had wild boar stew, roasted meats, pastas, crostini's, and the house wine. The meal was really very good and the prices were very reasonable. In fact we enjoyed it so much that we came back again to eat there and had another great meal as well. The service was good and the place was usually full with people trying to get in so I would recommend getting there early.

I had been in Italy for over a week eating lots of pasta, breads, meats, and more but very few vegetables. On a recommendation of a local person I went to Trattoria Dardano for a plate of greens. They were so fresh and delicious. Myself and others in my group went here several times during our stay in Cortona especially for the vegetables.

This trattoria is a really good choice in Cortona. We had the bistecca, which was wonderful, along with an antipasto and vegetable soup. The soup was really, really good also. Service was good and the place was packed with Italians of all ages having dinner--even on a weekday at 10:00pm. The price was also very reasonable. Do make a reservation if you plan to eat late like that Italians. It wasn't crowded when we stopped by at 7 to make our 9pm reservations. I would definitely recommend a stop here!

We arrived very late having experienced a three hour hold up on the motor way and we were very tired and very hungry when we "happened" upon the trattoria. We explained our plight as best we could and were welcomed in and invited to eat notwithstanding the late hour. We enjoyed wild boar pasta and porcini mushroom pasta followed by guinea fowl (the best I have ever tasted) and then a delicious tiramisu. It was my husband's and another Italian lady's birthday and they were both presented with an icecream with a candle and happy birthday was sung! A memorable meal in a family owned restaurant - unstuffy, relaxed, friendly and with excellent service - in fact we liked it so much we returned for two equally mouth watering meals.
