Our apartment was up the hill from this adorable restaurant. We were glad the climb was steep so we stopped to try it. The owner is charming and his wife a great Chef. The food is excellent and the presentation sensational. My husband had the lasagna with pistachio and cheese and said "the pistachio crunch and flavors" were fantastic. I had the goose pate with duck speck - the flavors exploded in my mouth and the tagliatelle ith the local beef ragu (chianina) was incredible. We are from Phoenix where we have many great restaurants and this would be ranked high if it was in our City. Make this a must on your list of great places to eat in Cortona!!!

We had the pleasure of eating at Cortona Bistrot during our most recent visit to Cortona and it was like having a meal with our family. The food was delicious and our group of 6 were pretty quiet for the first several minutes after digging into our plates of deliciousness. I had the spinach and ricotta gnocchi with a good italian red wine while others had equally wonderful looking dishes. Davide served us and by the time we left we were friends. If I lived in Cortona, I would be at this restaurant every week. It's a little past Garibaldi Piazza, easy to get to, killer views and outstanding food and service.

We were lucky enough to both get in without a reservation and be seated where we could watch the chef perform her artistry. The food was incredible, the chef's passion for it was unmistakable, and her husband's attention to our table was exceptional. Everything we ordered was delicious. The gnocchi was, far and away, the best food we've tasted on our current trip.

Went there with my wife and enjoyed the food and the decor. We took their platter which is a great way to enjoy the tastes of Tuscany. The decor is amazing as are the owners who welcomed us.
