A great find. Great coffee and amazing pastry and incredibly reasonable. A must in when you are in this area. This is not your run of the mill cafe so do not miss it.

We visited everyday during our stay in Volterra. Last time we missed this charming eatery and just came upon it by accident this time. We could see it was popular by the amount of customers queuing but taking away, or eating 'on the hoof', so we didn't have to wait long for a table. Loved all the pastries, coffee is... More

What a great place for a coffee, a pastry, gelato or something stronger. We called into L'Contro nearly every morning to sample the delicious food. Excellent value also. Try the fresh squeezed orange juice, as good as you can get! Obviously a very popular spot for the locals as you can watch them popping in for a drink or coffee... More

This is a lovely place, really nice decor and ambiance. The tiny cakes, the chocolate and the gelato are all excellent as is the coffee. Everything is spotless and very efficiently run. Excellent all round. I wish they served tea as well as coffee but it's only a British thing about tea...

Since years our favourite bar in Volterra. Because of everything you could say. The ice creams, the delicious 'dolce' and the staff.

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
