Description: We allure you with our elegant and stunning atmosphere but the food is why you won't want to leave! Traditional and seasonal dishes here mix with innovative and exiting ideas. Everything we do originates from the personal passion of the owner and the cook! Starting from the variety of game to fresh truffle. From the home made pasta to the home made cakes. Even the coffee is the very best: we are the proud owners of the only traditional steam coffe-machine in the area. As Maurizio (the owner) is also a sommelier his passion spreads of course also to the wine menu. If this wasn't enough Maurizio also e enjoys making his very own spirits of which you'll find a wide selection here.

The hosts were nice to serve food before siesta started. And all the food was very good, especially ribolata and lasagna. Carpaccio was sliced pretty thik but still was good. They have unusual interior in the basement which is worth seeing too.

We tasted there some dishes never eaten before - gnocchi filled with soft pecorino cheese and carpaccio di porcini. Both excellent.

This was our second visit to Cortona, we had been here several years ago and didn't have a good experience, so thought we would give it "another try"!
We had lunch at Nessus Dorma - I had risotto with porcini, which was absolutely tasteless and my husband had the Duck breast which had to be sent back for more cooking - then it was edible. Service was not good. I actually think they forgot we were there! We wouldn't recommend this place.

Food was average. Tricky to deal with the primo and seconding Plato... dishes do not arrive when expected.
Carbonara and caprese was good.
Service, so, so. Needed to intervene to get inside when it started to rain.
Go there for the location!

We eat here at least once every time we're in Cortona. Eat outside on the patio and people watch or underground in the grotto and enjoy the intimate ambience. They do somethings better than others, but I've never had a truly bad meal here. Plus, since we have some history here, we are always greeted happily and made to feel at home.
