Cortona Italian Café
Craving Italian? Cortona has you covered.

Hearth and Hill
With Korean fried chicken, truffle mac, fresh fish, and amazing burgers, it’s no wonder Hearth and Hill was voted Park City’s Best Family Restaurant for the second year in a row. For crowds of all sizes, pull up curbside to pick up one of Hearth and Hill’s family dinners (choose from orange chicken, beef brisket, or family fajita night) or frozen entrées (meat or vegetarian lasagna).
