We tried this place the first day of our week long stay in Cortona, service was slow and when we asked the waiter a question about a desert item, he said it was fish, the Italian people next to us corrected him and he got angry at us. We reluctantly went back 4 days later as it was the only... More

We had a great Diavola pizza and an outstanding ham and cheese piadina (other towns would call it a panini) while we sat outside and watched the people go by in Cortona. In fact, the piadina was so good that we ordered one several other places around Italy and never found one that even came close. The bread seemed to... More

This is my only negative review ever on Trip Advisor. I walked in to the restaurant to ask about seating, stood directly in full view of the waiter (whom I had seen there before, he seems to be a one-man show) and he studiously avoided even looking at me for more than 5 minutes. I spoke to him, smiled at... More

Caffe Degli Artisti is an experience I'd recommend - a great setting on the busy (traffic-free) main shopping street, so you get a chance to watch the tourists shop and the locals strut. Decent value beer and wine, very good pizzas (and everything else looked good too!), with the added bonus of hilarious service - the staff (most friendly and... More

A ridiculous title for an Italian café/restaurant but my 9-yearold granddaughter, an expert in the field, said her pasta pesto was the best she tasted this trip and my pasta al aglio, pomodoro e basilica was perfect. When the charming elderly man who took our order found out we were from Finland he shouted for his daughter-in-law Katja who came... More

My daughter is a better person than me and so she kept coming up with excuses as to why the server could be so brusque and make so many mistakes. I felt that it was a business and maybe he should at least try to be a bit pleasant. After reading previous reviews I felt that maybe it wasnt just... More

We ended up here while looking for a place to have a light dinner (after previously having a rich late lunch). The view over the central piazza is amazing in the night light, and watching people passing by creates a very relaxing feeling. The place has an extensive menu of bruschette and pizza, while in the same time being a... More

My wife and I visited Cortona for the afternoon after travelling from the north. After walking the main st of Cortona looking at the different menus available we settled on this cafe. What an absolute pleasure we received. Good food with good sized portions, good wine, and friendly and prompt service. All this at a very reasonable price. One of... More

The food was decent, but our bald server was terrible. He mixed the orders and seemed to be in a really bad mood the whole time. I understand that sometimes people have a bad day, but this guy really shared it with everyone. The ravioli was ok, but we also ordered a tomato salad and it came out the Italian... More

I have been going to Cortona for 25 years now and whenever I am in town, I make it a point to see Francesco and his Dad in Caffe Degli Artisti every time. Whether it's having a glass of champagne during summer months or an espresso on a chilly winter evening, this wonderful cafe has earned a place in my... More
