My wife & I were looking forward to this restaurant, as it'd had mostly good reviews. We visited on Sat. lunchtime (busy) to book for the following evening. The proprietor said he'd squeeze us in for 7.00pm Sun., but we'd be outside. We arrived Sun....More

We ate supper here on Apr. 1, 2017. We were lucky to be able to get in on short notice (made our reservation about an hour in advance). I believe that normally you need to make reservations earlier, because it is very popular. We had...More

Sorry, but at age 59 I find it patronizing to have some strange man pinch my cheek and call me blondie. At the time I let it go, but in retrospect wish I had said something. He was overbearing to the wait staff and several...More

Went there for lunch. Was a little concerned that it would be too touristy, and yes, it was popular with tourists but unlike many, the restaurant has kept to quality Tuscan food. Excellent service, food and very good wine list.

We went to this restaurant twice during our 5 days stay near Cortona. All dishes were very good, great wine and ambience. It's a small place and very popular with tourists, so reservations are highly recommended.

We ate here on our last night in Italy. We selected the pre-fixed dinner, which was 4 courses, all excellent, at a great price of 29€ pp. Its on a steep slope off the main piazza but worth it.

I don't think they do. It is a very small environment, and the food seems more suitable to dinner.
