It's somewhat hard to find, and even harder to find open, but it is a treat to go there! It is tiny -- 4 tables inside, and a little more outside when it's warm. But the spaghetti Carbonara is PERFECT!!! It is all quite simple food, prepared in a tiny kitchen by Mario, the owner, but it is all perfect. When you can go and sit outside with a small group of people, it is the essence of Italy.

Small restaurant (fells very local). Mario - the owner simply cooks whatever he chooses that day. No menu but it doesn't matter because whatever you order will be great.

This restaurant offers great large & small dishes inspired by Etruscan culture and habits and cooked with locally produced ingedients! Considering the price tag and excellent service it certainly deserves A star!

This is the best pasta I have ever had anywhere in my life. It's an extra thick, homemade spaghetti-type noodle, with a pancetta creamy tomato sauce. The tiramisu is insanely good too. Fresh, real, made with love.

We have been visiting Cortona for 10 years and the Etrusca is the first place we head to. Mario is always friendly and welcoming. From the menu the Bruschetta, Pasta Fumo and Tagliata are favourites. There are often daily specials made with whatever is in season so last week we had a delicious Panzanella. The food is simple, fresh and delicious.
