El Commenchero's is a great place to enjoy trueTuscan food.
We have been often, usually as part of a large group- Boxing Day, festas or gatherings to celebrate birthdays or other events and always we have had a marvellous experience.
First the food- Excellent and genuine tuscan fare cooked by Signora Caneschi and her son Jan- Carlo. Always lots of food and always great
Wine- their local wine is very drinkable
Service- Friendly and very good
Franco Caneschi is the genuine Italian cowboy he dresses up for each luncheon. He serves on table with his son Andrea and other children; he often brings in a hunting Owl or other animal which oversees proceedings and finally he serves Grappa at the end of the meal from a glass rifle and form glasses "drawn" from a huge ammunition belt!!!!
Overall, every visit is an exceptional experience one not to be missed if visiting Cortona

The restaurant is secretly located, usually catering to those expert locals that have come to know about it by word of mouth. The owner is a charismatic gentleman as well as an experienced adventurer with a cowboy dresscode. The meat quality is among the best ones you can find and the bison meat is fresh and truly excellent. The set up is perfect for both friends and couples. Dining here gives one the feeling of being far out in Wyoming while being treated the Italian way. The place has a special place in my heart, and in my tummy !!

This restaurant is great. If you visit Cortona and want delicious TUSCAN food with a whole new twist then this is the place to go! As the restaurant filled it became one big, happy party.
They certainly know how to cook and have fun. Huge portions at more than reasonable prices.

My daughter lived in Cortona and recommended this restaurant. She said it was the best meal she had in Italy . . . How could a Wild West themed restaurant in Tuscany possibly do that? Well she was right! This family owned restaurant has the freshest ingredients, and stays true to its Italian roots. You must have the pasta with mushrooms and gorgonzola cheese sauce. Loved
it!
