had a really enjoyable breakfast here. The tables are well spread and the restaurant is heated nicely. We enjoyed excellent croissants, really good freshly squeezed orange juice, a ham and cheese toastie, all with excellent coffee for € 16. Highly recommended.

The only way to say how much I enjoy Tucher’s is to tell you it’s my go to Cortona spot year after year after year. Massimo, Daniella, and their son’s Edoardo and Niccolo, make you feel at home and make everymeal feel like it’s a special event. If you want a place to relax, experience the Italian love for life,...

The Caffe Tuscher makes the best coffee in Cortona and is a great place to go for an Aperitivo or for a light lunch -all year round. The "snacks" provided with drinks are the best in town. Massimo and Daniela are delightful hosts and are always bright and cheery.(They have a lovely dog "Lucky" who is sometimes allowed to go... More

Tuscher plays three roles in Cortona: It's a great place for a coffee stop, a delicious spot for lunch, and, while they do not serve dinner, it's one of the very best places for pre-dinner cocktails and canapes. But the very best commodity on offer is the owner couple, Massimo and Daniela, who are charming, witty, and the ultimate ambassadors... More

We didn't have a meal here, but a few cocktails that were delicious and well-made. The interior overall is lovely and comfortable. Of all the places in Italy we have an aperitif before our dinner reservation Caffe Tuscher served the most delightful snacks, fresh bruschetta among other antipasto, to accompany our drinks (not just crisps or peanuts as was our...

Really liked the modern Italian twist and fortunately not a pizza in sight. Try the Rosso Antico Ginger - pic attached :)

This was our first stop on our visit to Cortona on a chilly, rainy day. The coffee was excellent, but the place lacked charm and personality. We stood at the counter, enjoyed our Illy coffee, and left. The person who waited on us did not speak much English, which may have contributed to our less than warm experience.

Caffe Tuscher is on the only flat street in this beautiful old hilltown. My wife discovered Cortona years ago and have been back many times since then. We feel extremely at home in Cortona and have discovered many wonderful restaurants. Caffe Tuscher is one of those and is a great spot for either drinks or a meal. The service and... More

We visited Cafe Tuscher several times on our recent trip to Cortona and it was excellent. We usually had drinks and cocktails and these were excellent especially the cocktails. The range is vast and I had the 'old fashioned' a few times which was very good. The service from the owner and his wife is superb and they speak very... More

Caffe Tuscher without doubt does the best cocktails in Cortona! Try the Margaritas! These are always accompanied by an ample selection of innovative and delicious free nibbles. Food is excellent and the service second to none! Situated on the main walkway into Cortona it is an ideal place to sit and watch the world go by. Highly recommend.
