My family and I had a great dinner at Locanda al Pozzo Antico. The food was delicious and the service excellent. It is convenient to the main square in Cortona and right next to Dolce Maria B & B.

Stumble upon this restaurant while on a short visit to Cortona. The restaurant was not opened when we arrived but Paola, chef and owner, invited us in anyway. Steak was excellent as well as her pasta. Tiramisu and pane cotta dessert were so good.
