A memorable meal in Cortona. We had an early reservation 730pm and there were all Americans dining when we arrived. our table was in the middle of the busy back room. Interesting menu and some of the most unusual food combinations that we have seen on a menu or eaten outside of our San Francisco area home. A bit pretentious... More

Travelling with my sister and her husband we stopped for lunch and did not regret it. The meal was delicious (I had cappellini with truffle shavings). The wine recommendation was right on (a Vernaccia) and dessert (chef's take on tiramisu) excellent. Great place to eat and enjoy the atmosphere.

We recently had lunch with friends at this delightful restaurant in Cortona. The food and ambience were so good that we returned on the following evening for dinner. We were not disappointed. This is an excellent restaurant.

Our server, Maximiliano (sp?) made our three hour lunch most memorable. His recommendations regarding food and wine were flawless. Our California-based party of four all rated this one of our best dining experiences ever. We will return.

The food may be great when one receives the attention of an individual order... BUT, NOT last night where the chef prepared the same 5 course meal for everyone. There were 3 rooms with approx. 16 - 20 people in a room and all being served the same course around the same timeframe so it felt like mass production. The... More

Cortona is a gem....and Osteria della Teatro, near the town Theater, is a gem too. Super wines, specialty items like Bardo Porco that you will not find anywhere else had us going back twice. Knowledgable staff added to a truly memorable experience.
