First time in Miami and I fell in love with this place, they truly treat you like royalty from the moment you walk in til you leave. The food is delicious and the owner is a very wonderful welcoming man. He was there the first day we tried this place and it was his treatment that made us come back again for dinner. I would recommend this place to anyone.

We visited del Teatro for dinner and were not disappointed. It was great to have wait staff that were genuinely enthusiastic and cared about our experience, a contrast to our experience at Antica Pieve the night before. We shared the cheese fondue with truffle for starter and it was delicious. We followed with two filettos, tartufo (truffle & foie gras) & al lardo de colonnata e prugne (with bacon & wine & prune reduction). Both were excellent with beautifully cooked meat and flavoursome sauces. We were full after that and told the waitress so she brought us complimentary digestives (amaretto). Including side dishes of roast potatoes (yummy), grilled veggies and a bottle of wine it came to between E80 & E90 (I think). Another couple staying at our B&B went on the same night and also enjoyed their meal.

We were attracted to this osteria when out for a stroll of Cortona sidestreets. What a great find! The ambience is fabulous and the food matches it. I had a pecorino stuffed fennel bulb that I will never forget. Actually went back the next day for the same thing. The staff are great and love their job. We were able to sit on the outdoor balcony as we arrived right at noon time. By one they were turning people away and I believe were booked for dinner as well. Make sure to check out the banyo even if you don't need it. Adorable! A must do in Cortona!

I have already visited this restaurant twice and I must say, I have never eaten so well elsewhere. The staff are very friendly and the food is beyond superior. Make sure to order the delicious tartufo and pecorino fondue for starters and do try some of their homemade chocolate!

Well done Oesteria Del Teatro and see you again soon :)

Great food, and a very knowledgable sommelier who selected the perfect to accompany our lunch. We sat on the balcony surrounded with flowers - a dream!
