I'm no expert on any type of cuisine, but their tortellini cacio e pepe was the best thing I've ever eaten. Very nice gentleman running the place, great location, and amazing food.

We visited this restaurant for lunch on a Saturday. The people were very friendly and the food was seasoned perfectly and delicious. The portions were also very large- we could not finish! Highly recommend.

This is small friendly café offering food and drink at reasonable prices. In fact, the house wine is really well-priced for the area. It is right on the main street, so easy to find. Local people tend to use the area at the back, closest to the bar, so there is a nice buzz there.

We looked into Caffe Deli Artisti and the owner (we presume) immediately came out and tried to convince us to enter. It was too early for lunch so asked if they can provide a gluten free meal. The response was an enthusiastic yes so we said we would return. After about 45 mins we returned to the warmest smile and... More

Lovely lunch spot with funky decor. Excellent salads and piadina (local flatbread specialty). I believe that you should try local cuisine not easily found in your hometown. Piadina is rarely seen in the US - it's sort of an Italian quesadilla, with various fillings, very tasty. Anyway, it was quite good and the place is charming.

We weren't planning on eating in Cortona until the proprietor of this cafe convinced us to stop for a glass of wine and a small bite. I appreciate good salesmanship, and he has that talent. Anyhow, we were glad he did because the wine selection was quite varied but inexpensive and we also tried two small pasta dishes. Both were... More

We arrived in Cortona and people everywhere. After walking around we came across this cafe cum bar as we needed something to eat for lunch and a bit of a rest. We did not have high expectations but were greeted with a "welcome" by an older gentleman who seemed to be in charge who made us comfortable. The food was... More
