We were staying at the Villa di Piazzano (just around the corner) and decided to venture out and I'm so glad we did, as the restaurant at Relais La Corte dei Papi is excellent. The service, food and setting were all excellent, which made for a lovely evening. I especially liked all the little extras they did, like a complimentary aperitif, amuse bouche and then the owner coming over and chatting to us at the end of our evening to thank us for coming! We were only too glad to come to this place, as it's a little gem. I just wish we had be able to stay for a couple of days to experience the rooms at the hotel too.

We had two charming dinners at the restaurant. The meal was excellent and service supurb. The steaks and fish were both fresh and well prepaired. The presentations were 5 star.

Dei Papi is a resort east of Cortona with lovely restaurant with delicious food and gracious service. We were staying in a hillside villa and tired from driving Tuscany all day. We headed to a pizza place when we saw the sign for "dei Papi" and pulled in - without reservations. No problem. They were busy but made the 3 of us feel welcome and unhurried. I'm sorry I've waited too long to remember exactly what we had, but each of us ordered something different and none were disappointed. Location/facility is now on our list of places to stay the next time we travel to Tuscany.

We were greeted at the door by the owner and seated in one of the several dining areas in the historic manor house. The room was comfortable and pleasantly quiet, even though a large group was being served in another part of the building.
We were started with amuse-bouches of layered light bread and finely prepared vegetables. We shared an appetizer of local meats, salad and flowers followed by fettuccini, gnocchi, duck breast, and beef filet. These magnificent courses were followed by cream with strawberries.
This dinner at La Core Dei Papi was a dining highlight of our trip.
