Always a great spot to have a drink and the nibbles provided completely free of charge are excellent. I haven't eaten in the restaurant yet but if you are looking for the best spot to have a drink in Cortona look no further than the Tuscher Caffe. Masimmo is ex Savoy Hotel and Grill so he knows his stuff and... More

The place looks like a bar from the outside and we entered only for a cup of coffee. The owners were very nice and offered us some free bruschette. They also have a lovely collection of wine so my husband decided to taste some. But between glasses we got hungry and decided to order lunch there. It was superb. Home-made... More

There is no better place to watch the passegiata in Cortona as the evening cools down than sitting at one of the outside tables of Caffe Tuscher to enjoy a pre-dinner drink. A spritz or a G and T, a wine or a cocktail, whatever you feel like it's served with charm, humour and nibbles, superb.

I was excited to try this place based on the Trip Advisor reviews, but was slightly disappointed. It was fine, but did not have the vibe, nor the warm reception I expected based on the reviews. Also, we went on a Sunday for espresso and pastries, and I was disappointed in the dearth of their pastry selection. Very nicely appointed... More

You're spoiled for choice on the Via Nazionale in Cortona. Caffe Tuscher does it better than the others in part because of the service and knowledge of the waiters. They each took a genuine interest in us and we had some great conversations. The food and drinks were good, if not outstanding, but for a street cafe where you can... More

Stopped by for. Quick late lunch and was craving a boring old hamburger. We sat outside and watched the people pass by and had our orders in and meals delivered very quickly. The hamburger and fries were a welcome change from a several days of pasta and it was surprisingly tasty. I don't know what the other food is like... More
