Perfect view in charming surroundings and extremely friendly service.
It was Tuscany food when it as it’s best.!
Be aware that it is difficult to find. When the gps gives you direction you think that this is not right. Do continue. Then again you will doubt the gps directions and you just continue even though most people would turn around. It can be done and the ‘winner’ gets a fabulous meal.

We were so pleased that our research told us that this was a difficult place to find...how true that was but boy was it worth persevering.we sat on the veranda , fantastic views.The service from start to finish was brilliant , absolutely attentive, knowledgeable and wanting us all to enjoy our evening. The longer we were there the more we enjoyed it. We left our waiter to recommend local wines - result!..our daughter had the pasta, a big eater but loved it - result!..my pork fillet in a cheese sauce , sublime - result! My wife' s fillet steak wad one of the best ever eaten anywhere in the world - result!...and all local produce and a wonderful evening. You have to go there and trust your judgement...so pleased I didn do a u turn in the car park thinking I was lost and drive off! Thankyou guys this was 10/10..fantastic night and with 12 days left I can't see how we can better it..

We live in major cities across the US and came together for an Italian adventure. The last place we anticipated eating while exploring the hill towns of Tuscany was a Italian Saloon with authentic American cowboy memorabilia and an owl. But man, what an OUTSTANDING experience. Andreas (our waiter) took us on a tour of the restaurant, explaining his father's love of Western culture and introducing us to his mother (the chef) and his brother (the owl). The food, the atmosphere, the VIEWS, the service, the incredible value, and the local community feel made this the best dining experience we had on our two week trip. It was totally worth the trip up the windy road that had us repeating, "This can't be right". HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Outside of Cortona on a windy road! We were looking for this restaurant and took google maps. We kept thinking “this can’t be right”! Kept going up and up and luckily didn’t meet a car coming down; road is very narrow. It to a place that said Saloon! We thought it was going to be a Italian restaurant; found out it was a Texas Style Restaurant and All 6 of us are from Texas! The menu has s Italian! Chef is the mother and a brother. It was delicious and all pasta and sauces Home made. A great view and wonderful view. Highly recommend!

You need to ask the locals to find this unique restaurant. The owner dresses like a cowboy with beautiful owls that he shows to customers. The food is magnificent and I have never has Florentine steak THIS good!! In fact everything else was simply great...
