Was recommended this as "the" place to eat in the charming old city of Cortona! And it did not disappoint. My pasta special with wild boar was so unique and delicious. My family all thoroughly enjoyed their hot and fresh dishes and the service was outstanding. The proprietor Paolo and his staff make you feel like family the moment you... More

We were referred by the family we were renting from. They said it was the place they went for traditional local food. It was friendly, homey & very good . Also reasonably priced!

I was initially turned off when I walked past here at lunch and saw a tour bus group. But several late evening walks passed it and noticing the local crowd intrigued me. I was not disappointed, the wild boar and house wine was perfect and a great value. I placed it mid-range since the food is not of the cheap... More

Both times I've been to Cortona, this is my first stop! For lunch or dinner, Trattoria Dardano has outstanding simple, authentic Tuscan cuisine. While Paolo (the wonderful owner) specializes in fresh grilled meats and vegetables, you cannot leave without trying his AMAZING homemade panna cotta (get the berry topping) I get one every day I'm in town!

We ate lunch here and were very satisfied. This place was still busy during the slow season. It has a very local/family feel to it. The food was excellent, the house wine was great, and the price was very reasonable.

We walked around looking where we wanted to eat dinner and the restaurant was very busy, while the others nearby did not seem to be very busy, so we put our name in for a table, which they said would be about 20minutes. We walked around enjoying the night air and came back, since the table was not quite ready... More

We very much enjoyed our dinner in Dardano restaurant. The taste was great and the prices were fair. I particularly recommend pasta with mushrooms and truffle. Also steaks are great!
