Best espresso martini ever!

Must try the espresso martini - by far the best we have ever had! Lovely tables outside for drinks on a warm day. Very friendly service. Didn't eat the food as we'd already had lunch but stayed for a few drinks and highly recommend stopping in.

We visited Tuscher on several occasions during our three week stay in Cortona, usually for a drink before dinner. The service was excellent, always friendly and helpful and the 'nibbles' were fantastic. Massimo and Daniella always went out of their way to chat and make us feel really welcome, as well as sharing the secrets of making a great 'old... More

Our group had been going strong for almost 12 days, touring the Tuscany region. Our last stop was Cortona, With a lot of walking to cover this great town, the six of us settled in to Tuscher's for an excellent Great American cheeseburger, side of delicious onion rings and an ice cold beer!!! Beautiful relaxing music playing in the background... More

We had drinks here daily, great service, great wines and beers accompanied by assorted delicious snacks ! A great place to relax inside away from the street or on the street to people watch. Staff friendly and welcoming.

Enjoyed this lovely place for lunch with 6 of our friends. What a nice restaurant with exceptional service. We were greeted by the owner and his chef (also his son) truly does work magic in the kitchen. The lasagna had thin light noodles and the sauce was to die for. I wish I could find it like this at home... More

We were a group of 8 and we all tried something different. Everyone was more than happy with their meal. The lasagna is outstanding and the tiramisu is awesome. Loved this place. Two thumbs up

Loved this place, lovely drinks etc, even with a drink you get nibbles, all free. Service was great with lovely seats outside in the beautiful Cortona, definitely worth a visit.

We had pasta and wine for a late lunch. They were both excellent dishes but the pasta with pork and cream sauce was a different take for us and very delicious. This was a quiet and relaxing stop with lovely service and great food. Highly recommend.

It's just so relaxing. A witness to this testament, a Cortonese, is gently snoring in an adjacent chair while I sip my post prandial cafe. All is elegance and calm at This momento, only the rise and fall of the occasional bar loiterer's patter stirs the perfect atmosphere which is Tuscher. At other times it will be madness but still...

I reviewed this marvelous cafe/restaurant/bar last year and I must reiterate, Cafe Tuscher remains the best in Cortona. For breakfast, lunch or an apertivo this is hands down the very best place to go. The food is delicious, the service perfect and has the best mixologist in Tuscany. You relax in a classic, beautiful setting. Cafe Tuscher is in the... More
