There is something almost snobby about Caffe Tuscher. It seems to have a higher pedigree than the other caffes in Cortona. My wife and I are spending a month here and decided to stop for a glass of Prosecco. We've been to most of the other caffes in town and wanted to try it. The price was very reasonable -... More

We have been visiting Cortona since 2001 and return at least twice a year. Tuscher's is always our place to stop in. We have found that they have maintained their high standard for .....excellent drinks, food, service and are always looking to add something new. You can't beat the wonderful little treats that are served with a late afternoon/pre dinner... More

Cortona is a small, beautiful Tuscan city that is full of many, wonderful places to eat and drink. I live in Michigan, but decided to spend the winter in Cortona. Thus far I have visited fourteen restaurants and have nothing bad to say about any of them, but there is one place that keeps pulling me back: Cafe Tuscher! Everything... More

We travel to Cortona with our family every year and Tuschers is always, always, always a central hub for us. While it is a great spot for drinks (done perfectly by Massimo and Daniella) and to meet up with everyone, it is also an amazing place for a meal. You can hang out at the front bar area or have...

We first discovered Caffe Tuscher some 7 years ago during our first trip to Cortona and met Massimo and Daniella who had opened it only a couple of years earlier. We were delighted to see this trip (Dec 2013) that they are still going strong and offering the best coffee (illy coffee), pastries, breakfasts and lunches in town. We enjoyed... More

We fell onto this spot one afternoon when it was raining. We ducked into to grab a sangria and split a pizza. The atmosphere is really nice and very relaxing. The sangria was really good and the pizza awesome. We returned the next day for a Rosso Antico cocktail which was crazy great. It was served with complimentary bruschettas. The... More

The advantage of this elegant cafe' in the centre of Cortona is the generosity with which drinks are accompanied by excellent 'crostini' and other special morsels, invariably good, intriguing and interesting. You can also choose to sit outside or inside, it is a friendly place, service is very good, and pets are welcome.

There are certainly no shortage of caffes in Cortona. Most offering similar fare and experience. But, for something a little more unique and refined try Caffe Tuscher. It is conveniently located right on Via Nazionale. It is the ideal spot to sit outside and watch the Cortona parade go by. Service is completely un-intrusive and you can sit for hours... More
