Every aspect of this restaurant was meticulously handled, from the food to the service. The owners are so friendly while being very professional.

I've eaten at Trattoria La Grotta three times in the past two months. My first experience was mediocre, at best. But I figured I might have just ordered something that wasn't one of the restaurant's best items. So I wanted to give La Grotta another...More

We have been coming every year for 14 years and our first dinner is always at La Grotta with Giancarlo. Everything is great. Try the grilled veal calf's liver - unique and wonderfully simple. Deserts are wonderful.

We've been to Cortona three times over the last eight years and each time we've dined here several times. Consistent quality and value. Typical Tuscan menu - simple tasty food made with fresh local produce and oils. Decent wine list including quality wines in half...More
