Don’t eat here. Horrible service and nothing special about the food. I refused to pay the automatic gratuity on the bill. It was like waitress forgot us. Brought out food in wrong order. I did think the grotto style room was pretty.

Charming little place, however it looked like a place for couples, but my sister and I ventured in to have a light lunch. We were seated in the "basement" part which was very interesting. We ordered the Boar Bourguigon, which was fantastic, with the bread...More

We chose this restaurant based on it's location, outside dining and wonderful menu. It did not disappoint. The papardelle with wild boar sauce was mouthwatering delicious! The staff was excellent and one of the cooks showed us how the wild boar sauce was made. Everything...More

The hosts were nice to serve food before siesta started. And all the food was very good, especially ribolata and lasagna. Carpaccio was sliced pretty thik but still was good. They have unusual interior in the basement which is worth seeing too.

We tasted there some dishes never eaten before - gnocchi filled with soft pecorino cheese and carpaccio di porcini. Both excellent.

This was our second visit to Cortona, we had been here several years ago and didn't have a good experience, so thought we would give it "another try"! We had lunch at Nessus Dorma - I had risotto with porcini, which was absolutely tasteless and...More

Food was average. Tricky to deal with the primo and seconding Plato... dishes do not arrive when expected. Carbonara and caprese was good. Service, so, so. Needed to intervene to get inside when it started to rain. Go there for the location!

We eat here at least once every time we're in Cortona. Eat outside on the patio and people watch or underground in the grotto and enjoy the intimate ambience. They do somethings better than others, but I've never had a truly bad meal here. Plus,...More

We have lunch here every year when we make our annual visit. The food is great and there is almost something for everyone. We had to ask for lasagna for our son but they were able to arrange this. The only negative is that you...More

We allure you with our elegant and stunning atmosphere but the food is why you won't want to leave! Traditional and seasonal dishes here mix with innovative and exiting ideas. Everything we do originates from the personal passion of the owner and the cook! Starting from the variety of game to fresh truffle. From the home made pasta to the home made cakes. Even the coffee is the very best: we are the proud owners of the only traditional steam coffe-machine in the area. As Maurizio (the owner) is also a sommelier his passion spreads of course also to the wine menu. If this wasn't enough Maurizio also e enjoys making his very own spirits of which you'll find a wide selection here.
