This is one of my absolute favorite restaurants in Cortona. The owner, Paola, is a superb chef and creates the most amazing dishes. It is very popular with locals, so be sure to reserve your table early.

Paola and her family provide fine food and friendly service. The pastas are excellent, especially with truffles and procini. The main dishes are meat oriented, with several types of tagliata (bavette in English, London broil in the US)
