Good cakes

Lovely cakes, sandwiches, and ice creams. very reasonably priced. Good air conditioning. Weird system for paying - you had to pay first then go and get items. trying to explain what you wanted when you can't speak Italian at the till was challenging. At least if you were at the counter you could... read more

Happened across this on the main street when everything else was closed and what a find. Tiny little toasted sandwiches, pastries and amazing coffee (best we had all week), at great prices. Made it back regularly. Don't change a thing.

This pastry shop is I imagine an institution in Montecatini Terme. It opens for long hours every day except Mondays. The locals flock to it and enjoy their quick cup of coffee and a cake. There are only two tables inside for sitting at and a total of 4 chairs. Everyone stands at the bar and consumes their purchase there.... More

Walking around stumbled on this little restaurant behind the church in the main square. Lovely seating area outside, English speaking staff very helpful. Italian menu with lots of choice. Huge wine list , no need to buy anything pricey as you can get s decent bottle for around 20/25 Euros. My partner had the duck in mustard sauce which was... More

The best ice cream I have ever tasted, delicious each time. Great espresso too. Beautiful confectionery, real good old fashioned Italian treat.

Our group enjoyed very good gelato and pastries from this restaurant. They had about 25 flavors of gelato and the several I tried were excellent. The staff were all very helpful, especially with the language barrier. The only thing about the place that I was not fond of was they allowed dogs inside [ these were pets, not service animals].

What a beauty. Loved the interior. There's gelato, chocolate, pastries, espresso and even a Martini on tap. We stopped here every evening after dinner for an espresso. Don't miss

This place succeeds in perserving a "vintage" feel, yet being able to offer great quality of coffee and desserts. Go there after dinner and the big selection of desserts will be cut by half, best time is around early noon.
