We went to this restaurant twice during our 5 days stay near Cortona. All dishes were very good, great wine and ambience. It's a small place and very popular with tourists, so reservations are highly recommended.

We ate here on our last night in Italy. We selected the pre-fixed dinner, which was 4 courses, all excellent, at a great price of 29€ pp. Its on a steep slope off the main piazza but worth it.

Our party of 13 was so impressed by this little restaurant in Cortona. Not only was the meal exquisite but the owner made sure we were entertained from beginning to end. He put on quite a show !

It is a pleasure to me that, in addition to eating well you have enjoyed having pleasant moments with me. I hope to see you soon in Cortona Magi Romano

When we first entered they told us it is closed already, however we have still been served with delicious wine, prosciutto and cheese cuted by Romano. Brillant service made us to feel welcome and loved. This is Italy essence we would like to remember!!!

I don't think they do. It is a very small environment, and the food seems more suitable to dinner.
