The location is beautiful: Bistro ancien regime style with very good soft music. The dishes ranging from the traditional italian pasta to pizza in particular ways, from the toasted bread (the one with the exceptional Tuscan livers) to the flatbread in different ways. Excellent wine list, for connoisseurs, and friendly service. At the end of the dinner they have offered... More

and welcomes you in, and thereafter it is all downhill from there. Mediocre food, mediocre service, mediocre atmosphere - really not worth venturing in to.

First time in this wee place. Served by a delightful gentleman who couldn't have been more helpful. Quite small. We were in a hurry so just had a Gorgonzola pizza and Spaghetti with Basil, garlic and cherry tomatoes. Both absolutely delicious. Will definitely be back, hopefully with more time to explore their menu which looked great.

We walked around charming Cortona and decided to try Caffe Degli Artisti. There were 6 of us and we sat outside and were able to people watch. The food was very good for lunch. We ordered insalata mista's which were large and very tasty with their oil and balsamic vinegar. The pasta with fresh tomatoes and cheese was delectable as... More

Just stopped for a drink to savor and relax. Enjoyed the laid back atmosphere. You can sit in front near the bar, or in a quieter more calm setting in a large back room. Worth a stop.

A quick lunch for our family of 4. The service was efficient, but not particularly friendly. We were given complimentary antipasti toasted pizza bread which was a nice touch however it was covered in chunks of salt. The menu looked standard however we did note the pizzas were cooked from frozen (as noted on the menu). My wife ordered a... More

My wife and I went here for lunch, because they had quite some salads on the menu card. I took the ensalata frutti di mare, which was a (very) large, tasteful plate with plenty of octopus. I was also happy to find out that you could get an Orvietto Classico Superiore by glass, instead of a entire bottle. Nothing exceptional,... More

Our first dinner in historic Cortona was so fresh and tasty that we had our last lunch here as well. Located on the best people-watching street this caffe has nice service by authentic Italian men and their English is very good as well. For lunch we had a Tonno Insalata or tuna salad and one of the best, and most... More
