Delicious pastries and Vin Santo! We came here for dessert after dinner the pastries were amazing and the space very comfortable. By mistake I left a bag at the table and remembered when I was about to leave Volterra the next day. I stopped to see if they discovered it and of course it was there behind the counter. Thanks!

A lovely cafe-pastry shop in the main street of Volterra (what a town!!!). Best ice cream we had in our trip in Tuscany.

L'Incontro is a must, at least once a day! Coffee and a pastry in the morning, glass of Prosecco in the evening, and a gelato at any time of day. It has a lovely atmosphere, and is frequented by locals. It's a great place to meet, or to wait for a shopping partner!

We stopped in L'Incontro almost every day while in Volterra for an afternoon or late night cappuccino and pastry. The seating is comfortable with room for counter customers to move about also. The pastry and candy is delicious and the selection is varied and absolutely beautiful and creative. That Italian artistic gene is obviously at work here with interior design... More

Really nice atmosphere, used by locals, which is a good sign. We found this a great place to relax at the end of an evening after eating out. We usually had a gelato from their wide variety, or a selection of small pastries and a coffee. The docor had an impressive wall covering of wine bottles (full) and large TV... More

This happened to be where we were to meet Annie Adair for our tour, but this is a typical little bar/wine shop in Volterra, and it has free with-no-login wifi to check your email. Get the "bones of the dead," it is apparently a favorite snack of Volterra. And yes, it looks like bones. Sweet, crunchy bones.

This a typical bar, café, pub you can find in Paris, Lyon, London, Cambridge, Antwerp, Gent, Brussels, New Orleans or whatever city in any country where locals come to get a drink, something small to eat, etc. L'Incontro is a bar in Volterra where locals come for a quick cup of coffée, a snack or some sweetness and in the...

Great bar and about the only one we found with wi-fi so that we could check on things to see and do since we forgot our guide book. Bars and restaurants with wi-fi are seriously lacking all over Tuscany and Venice.
