“Best Restaurant In Cortona”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

The food here was extremely good. The menu was varied and without exception every dish we experienced (4 in our group) lived up to expectations. We started the with a bottle of Pink Proseco, dramatically opened with a sword, a great start to the meal. The PICI Ragu was very flavoursome. The goat cheese and pear ravioli with walnut sauce was sublime. The steaks were all fabulous. The Tiramisu was the best yet. The Somelier cut through a Very extensive wine list and recommended a Wonderful Tuscan Sangiovese wine. A nice classic ambiance in the dining rooms, however too many dolls in the Ladies.

“Authentic italian food in a comfortable setting.”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

We were in Cortona in October 2012 and found Osteria Del Teatro by chance. All I have to say is the experience was wonderful. The food was prepared well and accompanied by local wines. Giovanni , our server, was pleasant and made us laugh. If you're in Cortona please go; I hope you will enjoy as we did.
