We've been coming to Dardano for the past 20 years whenever we stay in Cortona. It has always been a solid choice offering very good traditional food at very reasonable prices in a lowkey local's feeling set of dining rooms. We go for their grilled meats which are very very good - I believe they cook over wood grill. Grilled lamb chops, tagliata, sausages, filets, pork....it's always tasty. Their side dishes are also usually well done. House wine is good and inexpensive. Service can be brisk but always friendly. In high season it's a good idea to stop in and make a booking but otherwise usually are able to go in for a table. A very solid choice in Cortona!

We were recommended by our guide to eat here. Although the starter sharing plater I would have preferred to have in the middle rather than a large plate each the quality was superb.

Since the restaurant was “just off” the main drag in Cortona, we were a bit skeptical. The menu on the window had a lot of options that looked amazing especially for the price. We weren’t starving, so just had the Capreze salad and two pasta “primi’s”. The salad was amazing and we both wanted to lick the sauce off our plates when we were done. The half liter of house red was actually decent - especially at 4 euros. The staff was quite friendly, and not concerned about whose table it was - three or four people checked on us, brought food, asked about desert or coffee, etc. An amazing meal and great experience for 35 euros. Will certainly go back.

Five of us had lunch there while wandering through Cortona. One of the shopkeepers recommended it as not one of the touristy places so we gave it a try. We all had pasta dishes of some sort and everyone enjoyed there’s. The place was packed with what seemed like locals and the food and prices were good. Glad we made the stop.

A jolly happy place- snappy service and rustic fare. Plenty of options to choose from. I enjoyed porcini fritters and veal limone. Delicious! A relaxed and family run place.
