We went with friends we met at our hotel and had a fabulous dinner. Service was impeccable, meal was amazing with each course. If you stay in Cortona, don't miss this one and be sure to try the octopus appetizer.

We had a party of six last night and were very impressed. Shorty after being seated, the waiter poured everyone a complimentary flute of sparkling wine. We ordered a few appetizers including their signature variety plate. The presentation was super. Prices were very reasonable by...More

We sat on the tiny balcony in one of Cortona's tiny streets watching the passing groups of people on our last evening in Tuscany. Could not have chosen better if we tried. The service was attentive yet unobtrusive - a welcome glass of prossecco a...More
