Both times I've been to Cortona, this is my first stop! For lunch or dinner, Trattoria Dardano has outstanding simple, authentic Tuscan cuisine. While Paolo (the wonderful owner) specializes in fresh grilled meats and vegetables, you cannot leave without trying his AMAZING homemade panna cotta (get the berry topping) I get one every day I'm in town!

We ate lunch here and were very satisfied. This place was still busy during the slow season. It has a very local/family feel to it. The food was excellent, the house wine was great, and the price was very reasonable.

We walked around looking where we wanted to eat dinner and the restaurant was very busy, while the others nearby did not seem to be very busy, so we put our name in for a table, which they said would be about 20minutes. We walked around enjoying the night air and came back, since the table was not quite ready... More

We very much enjoyed our dinner in Dardano restaurant. The taste was great and the prices were fair. I particularly recommend pasta with mushrooms and truffle. Also steaks are great!

Every time we visit Cortona we make a bee-line for Dardano's and have never been disappointed with the quality of their food or their friendly welcome. We look forward to our next visit next year!

A true Italian eating experience. Menu is great and the relaxed atmosphere. You can leisurely enjoy many meat dishes ... rabbit, boar, mixed platter, beef steak, pork, chicken .... all excellent as well as a variety of pastas. Service is very good. Enjoys a good local business which is a excellent indicator of great food.

Stumbled on to this place next to the inn we were staying. Paola is a hands on owner operator. Small and comfortable - English friendly. We chose dishes to share and let him pick one. His smoked (he smoked) beef penne pasta with a light red sauce was amazing. He has an excellent list of local Syrah wines unique to... More
