Spent a week in Umbria/Tuscany and by far this was the best restaurant we dined in. Fabulous meal and excellent service. It was a delightful night and Owner/Chef Paola was just the best. Would recommend eating here!

We walked in on a Tuesday night and enjoyed a delicious rustic dinner. We enjoyed a farro soup, pici, and shared lemon chicken for our entree and finished with a delicious berry panna cotta. The service was friendly and the food was homemade without frills.

We have been to Cortona 3 times, this has become one of our favorite places to eat. It is on the main piazza, there is a 2nd floor terrace that looks out over the piazza. The evening view is fabulous as is the food.
