“Wonderful lunch spot in a great town”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

The pasta with ragu was delicious,and the bistecca (recommended by friend, Pino- thank you!) was very flavorful, thinly sliced, covered with rosemary herb sauce.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Having chosen this restaurant from seeing a good crowd inside and the seemingly traditional cuisine on the menu, we were disappointed to see that much of the food was not fresh and brought from the freezer and reheated. The crostini for starter were not even crunchy and the basket of bread (with cover charge) was inedible and stank of yeast!
Overall the worst restaurant in our two week stay in Italy, a real let-down.

“Charming”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

Does not look like much from the outside, just a little trattoria, but they have awesome food!! The vegetable soup was the best I've ever had.

“My favorite restaurant in Cortona”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

They grill their meats over charcoal. I had the most amazing lamb, which came from the family's own farm. Nice, quaint atmosphere. Loved it.
