Looking for something different than the classic Italian ristorante in Cortona? Try a meal at this bistrot. Nice atmosphere, interior and most important, good food. Ranging from a hamburger of chianine beef to daily specials. Highly recommended

Sat outside despite the heat. A shade was there to cover but offered little benefit from the heat. A hot breeze offered minimal relief. The meat/cheese/fruit/vegetable tray for two was great BUT go for the desserts. We had the madcarpone with the rum and the...More
