This place is a gem. Absolutely beautiful large terrace up the mountains above Cortona about a ten minute drive from town. We ate here twice during a week we rented a villa nearby. In our three weeks in Italy, one of the best place we ate. If there are a few of you highly recommend ordering a bunch of stuff and sharing. It's a great way to try a bunch of things on the menu. Highly recommend steaks in addition to salads, pizza and pastas. Really good desserts too. The setting is a just beautiful and they even have an outdoor playground for small kids. Very friendly, professional service. Highly recommend.

This was one of our numerous visits to this restaurant, Holiday after Holiday, year after year. This time it was a total disaster!
Dishes (even just a pizza) were served after 80-90m waiting and some were uncooked properly, which we had to return. They even had the courage to argue with us and sort of apologize for the 'delay'.
Total disappointment! Unfortunately, we're never coming back.

Amazing view to the valley & lake. We liked our pizzas! Got here a bit by accident as drove by, but if you are in for a nice terrace lunch/dining with great views, easy to recommend, at least the pizzas where superb!

The pizza was so delicious. Fresh and colorful with good ingredients. I had a good espresso waiting 10 minutes for my pizza.

I read the reviews and it was a total mixed bag but we a local business owner in town that recommended the place to us. We ran into him almost daily and all of his recommendations had been really good so we gave it a try. We got to the restaurant a few minutes before 7:00. They were not open yet but were told by the staff they would open at 7:30. We are aware of Italian time, Island time, and we are game. Not uptight and super prompt ourselves. We drove around the area a bit to kill some time. We headed back at 7:30 and they were still not ready so we hung out around the place. There was a swing set, incredible views, etc. We wandered back into the place and one group of guests had been seated. We were then asked by the staff if we had a reservation and we did not. We were told that there was nothing available. The place was empty and by no means is this place on the main strip. Still scratching my head..........I would do some research before putting this place on your list!
