If only we could take this trattoria and it’s owners home! The beer thrilled and sated my husband. Massimo‘s ravioli was always delicious and fixed differently each of the many times we dined there. The vegetarian salad is fresh, large and a perfect meal. Mickey’s...More

We've just had lunch here and we definitely recommend it if you're looking for informal quick meals, feeling at home with Massimo and Michela.

Excellent service and food, and the beer was quite good (one of, if not the only, places you can find in Cortona which brews their own beer). Went a couple of times while in town to continue enjoying home-brewed beers on tap and great food.

Visited this week with my family for lunch. Good idea to make a reservation first as it is not a huge establishment and is obviously very popular. Lovely decor, lots of beer on display and good menu. The food was absolutely delicious! I can highly...More
