Owned by Il Falconiere, but a more casual dining experience with excellent food. Try the Pici (fresh pasta) with any sauce.

This was definately a highlight of our trip! Beautiful rustic place that I can not wait to return to. Very quiet and so relaxing on our Tuscan retreat! I want to say we were so impressed with our host Amr. There was not a request he wouldn't do for us. I received a parking ticket (my fault) while in town... More

We were introduced to this restaurant in a small village near Cortona by friends and returned a further three times during our holiday. The internal dining room is a lovely traditional Tuscan area with small tables set around a long central farmhouse table decorated with sunflowers and bottles of wine. In hot July we sat out on the covered terrace... More

A fabulous restaurant just outside of Cortona, very worthwhile tracking it down. It's part of the Baracchi estate as such the wine is fantastic and the food is superb too

If you travel from Cortona over the hills east, you can visit the atmospheric 11th century Rocca di Pierle, now scaffolded as they attempt to reconstruct the old castle. But on your way back to Cortona via the SP35, on the right, just as you enter Montenare, you will find Locanda del Molino. Don't be fooled by its external appearance,... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in this beautiful converted mill and ate dinner twice. Both times we had the fillet steak, which is the best I have ever eaten - so tender and full of flavour. The ricotta stuffed courgette flowers were also stunning. Menu had emphasis on local Tuscan dishes. The host and manager Stefano was very charming... More

The food, the atmosphere... A real Tuscan lunch... And Graziella, the original owner and mother of Silvia, the chef of Il Falconiere , was the best! I loved also Stefano who made our experience very special. I loved his suggestions: tagliolino with Tartufo and the grilled Chianina meat

The food was OK - some good things, some acceptable, but nothing great or bad. Where this place let itself down was the service. It started with a "si" (yes?) not a good evening or a welcome. One table had guests, 15 tables were empty and we got a"yes"? To put it bluntly both waiters were on the cusp of... More

I didn't enjoy the fritto as much as everyone said I would - it was too doughy for my taste - but the ambience and company made up for it.

They have an amazing terrace out the back which has a stream running along side it. Amazingly relaxing and lovely atmosphere. Great wait staff (very smiley). Food was superb, we had beef fillet and it was superb. They have their own vineyard and so we drunk their brand of wine and it was very good. We actually bought a bottle... More

Description
Once upon a time there was a very old mill. Today it is a charming Locanda with a special typical Tuscan Restaurant, completely renovated by Silvia and Riccardo Baracchi, owners too of “Relais & Châteaux Il Falconiere”. A heaven of tranquillity and elegance, in the middle of the Cortona countryside, a land famous for its culture, cuisine, and great wines. The style of cuisine inside the Locanda is simple and genuine, but never ordinary.
