My husband and I were wandering around Cortona and decided to stop for lunch at about 1:30 when we just happened upon this tiny, homey restaurant. Mario greeted us warmly and we sat down to a delicious meal. On Mario's recommendation we shared a wonderful...More

Despite the owner being tired before his day off and having run out of many things, we had one of our best meals in Cortona here!

It's somewhat hard to find, and even harder to find open, but it is a treat to go there! It is tiny -- 4 tables inside, and a little more outside when it's warm. But the spaghetti Carbonara is PERFECT!!! It is all quite simple...More

Small restaurant (fells very local). Mario - the owner simply cooks whatever he chooses that day. No menu but it doesn't matter because whatever you order will be great.

This restaurant offers great large & small dishes inspired by Etruscan culture and habits and cooked with locally produced ingedients! Considering the price tag and excellent service it certainly deserves A star!

Had lunch at this restaurant. Was looking for something quick and settled on Pizza, which was very good. The wine was great and like the rest of Cortona, the wine was very inexpensive.

One of the more exciting restaurants in Cortona on our stay in 2013 turned out to be a Etrusca. Good friends suggested we all go here for dinner and said that Mario makes the finest Osso Bucco in Italy! Turns out it was wonderful, and...More
