We love Cortona with it's steep streets and art galleries. Favorite restaurant is La Grotta. They are especially good with meat - veal, beef and liver - one of the best. I love veal and often order it in Italy - this place is special,...More

We had a wonderful experience at La Grotta. The food was outstanding, the service was very good and the atmosphere was beautiful! We tried to visit a second time but there are closed on Tuesday. Highly recommend this place.

No wonder they were turning people away tonight if they hadn’t made reservations. The food we enjoyed was exceptional. The spinach and ricotta gnocchi were so light and so flavourful. Indeed every dish including our side dishes was superb. Not expensive at all for this...More

Get the gnocchi! We had an awesome meal, great wine,and wonderful service all in an authentic atmosphere...a must if you're in Cortona! Make a reservation, they fill up quickly, or go early, Italians eat a lot later than Americans. :-)

Authentic Italian food. Wine was reasonably priced and good quality. Started outside but rained and moved inside to a very nice dining room. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Enjoyed the pasta.

After hearing all about steak in Tuscany, we were pleasantly surprised at the non-steak selection. Bean-farro soup was very tasty. Spinach and white bean side dishes were seasoned just right. Waitress was a little put off by our request for 4 separate checks for our...More
