Loved this place. Friendly and welcoming even with a toddler. Classy setting, but not pretentious. Delicious food at very fair prices. Would go again if only I had more time in Cortona. We went for lunch.

We went with a group of 15 on a weeknight. The food, wine and service were outstanding. I had chicken, and my wife had a seafood dish. Both were tasty and well prepared.

Still one of my favorite restaurants in Cortona/all of Italy. The pasta creations are phenomenal and the truffle fondue is still one my favorite dishes ever. The wine selection is excellent and also great service. A must when in the area.
