This is a fantastic restaurant recommended by the hotel Il Falconiere, where we stayed. Hidden away in the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Everything was absolutely amazing, food, wine and ambience.

We got to the restaurant a bit early for dinner, but Paula was very welcoming and aranged a table for 12 without thinking twice. The food was excellent. Fresh, tasty and with the best product. But the service is what made the experience the best. We had some car trouble, and Paula went out of her way to help- making... More

The restaurant makes a great impression but the food that was recommended to us so much, has not been one of the best, as the service has been quite enough.

We ate at Locanda del Molino last Saturday night. It was to be a celebratory dinner for my parents and with such good reviews we were greatly looking forward to it. We took a taxi from Cortona (40 euros return) and 15 minutes later drew up at such an unprepossessing roadside restaurant we were sure he had taken us to... More

Recommended to us by Chef Gabriella from our hotel in Cortona. The service was great and the meal was very very good. It is a BYOB but they do offer their own local wine which was very good as well.

We were staying at a hotel nearby and asked for recommendations on where to eat and were not disappointed by being recommended Locanda Del Molino. Though a lovely building, from the outside you may not appreciate the wonderful restaurant and cuisine inside. We were warmly greeted by the owners and made to feel welcome from the off. Great pride is... More

When looking for traditional Tuscan, home made dishes, search no more. This is definetely one of the places to go to. Rustic, honest, friendly and enjoyable.

This was recommended to us by Il Falconiere, our hotel. Food was served promptly and tasted fabulous. Atmosphere is very pleasant, and Stephan and the staff all take an interest in making sure the client is satisfied. Perfect place and wonderful food.  We shall return!

Once upon a time there was a very old mill. Today it is a charming Locanda with a special typical Tuscan Restaurant, completely renovated by Silvia and Riccardo Baracchi, owners too of “Relais & Châteaux Il Falconiere”. A heaven of tranquillity and elegance, in the middle of the Cortona countryside, a land famous for its culture, cuisine, and great wines. The style of cuisine inside the Locanda is simple and genuine, but never ordinary.
