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. :-)

We were not welcomed from the very start. They told us they were full even though there was an empty table outside. Once I pointed it out, they said, “okay, sit there.” We waited a significant amount of time for service which would be fine had the waitress not helped tables that were seated after us before helping us. Plus, the waitress was not friendly nor patient. As for the food, it’s bland and nothing spectacular. All four of us ordered different dishes and agreed it didn’t seem fresh. Also, in the small alley, you don’t get a breeze so the smoke from other tables is nauseating. Clearly the table next to us knew the workers and were talking about us. So unprofessional.

We have eaten at several restaurants in Cortona and this by far was the worst for service and quality of food. Walk past and find another place.

We dined here in September 2018 and it was wonderful. My husband and a friend split a steak that they both said was one of the best they'd ever eaten anywhere. Myself and a friend had pasta that was also delicious. The restaurant was very busy and we still had great service. Would highly recommend Trattoria La Grotta as your first dinner stop in Cortona!

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 group of 7, but she handled it fine.
