We dined at this place twice during our 6 days stay in Cortona. The moment you walk in you feel a warm smell of wood fired oven and you don't want to leave. Great selection grilled meats, fish, house wine. The best steak Tartar. Very...More

Authentic Italian cuisine with Friendly staff and superb service. The ambiance, housed in a 12th century wine cellar is very historic. Appetizers great for sharing. Entrees are perfect portions to satisfied your appetite. If you are visiting Cortona eating in this restaurant is a must.
