Brief review but ate here this evening with family; absolutely fantastic food. Truffle cheese fondue starter is a big thumbs up, their pasta dishes are unbelievable as is the wine list. A must if you’re In Cortona.

Very good restaurant and reasonably priced. Wine list was reasonable with several good choices including Brunello, Chianti Classico, vino Nobile and other Italian wines. Food was regional Tuscan cuisine and was well prepared and delicious. Pasta and meat courses were all excellent. Deserts were superb.
