Enjoyed our pizza and pasta with breathtaking views. We arrived here on our first night in Cortona and found the restaurant easily.

While staying in Le More Cortona in Ossaia we decided to try the local restaurant and we pleasantly surprised by how good it was. Our favourites were the very thin and crispy Pizzas and Crema Catalonia. Excellent service and fabulous sunset views from the terrace...More

We were staying at a villa in Pergo and the property manager recommended La Tufa. His mom works there making the pizza's. Big mistake! We never ended up ordering a pizza there, and they looked awesome and according to a few other diners, they were...More

The ambiance at La Tufa is great and the terrace is wonderful for the sunset. Both traditional and popular Italian food is served to a high standard. It is a very popular restaurant with tourists and great for families.

This place is wonderful. Food was fresh and delicious, wine was outstanding, and prices reasonable. Yes service was a bit slow, but it's vacation time in Italy for gosh sakes! Rustic simple fresh food that you can't beat.

This is a great place, a huge old cellar, very busy and full. We had excellent good value pizza. Unlike the tourist restaurants in Cortona this place is catering to the local community - on the main drag a shopping hangar estate but on the...More

For the price you pay, the food is ok (not good). But the service was the worst we have had during our Tuscany trip. Total chaos, not interested in customer's well being. Bringing the wrong food (not only to our table). We even thought this...More

We were so astonished by its location but we're deeply disappointed with the experience we had eating there. The terrace is amazing but the way they stuck table in, sure is terrible, there is barely space to move around. We arrived at 21:00 on Tuesday,...More
