We were walking around Cortona looking for something to eat at 3pm, and most of the restaurants had closed for Lunch. Caffe Tuscher was open, and I decided that I wanted something "different". I had a Cheese Hamburger which was very good, and a house specialty, and my wife had Spaghetti cooked in Olive Oil & Garlic. Also very good.... More

After a pretty disappointing stint of bad food here, we were starting to think that people just didn't care. Fortunately we dropped in on the off-chance and were pleasantly surprised with the breakfast. Poached egg on toast with pancetta, freshly squeezed (and I mean we watched them squeeze it) orange juice and not half bad espresso. Will be going back... More

An excellent spot to soak up the local colour. The food is pretty good, too, from the omelettes to the grilled veggies, panini and pastas. We ate it all, as life streamed by on the street in front of our table for a week.

We enjoy sitting at an outdoor table with a spritz and watching Cortona pass by. The spritz's are excellent, the service is good and they bring an abundance of snacks. Price is very reasonable.

With tables set up along one side of Cortona's Via Nazionale (the main walking street)... this is the best place for people-watching. It just so happens to be a terrific bar and restaurant. I had a number of made-from-scratch Espresso Vodka Martinis that were out-of-this-world. All the food is excellent, but the Gnocci was the best I have ever had... More

We ate here for lunch and it was delicious! Sat out in the street so we could people watch. Off menu recommendations were made and we chose those, pesto pasta and pasta with oil, garlic & chilli, both cooked to perfection and just enough to not leave you stuffed. Great service, food and beer,definitely worth stopping here

We had such a pleasant time sitting outside of the cafe for lunch. The owner was welcoming and attentive. The food was surprisingly good. The cheeseburger was delicious and so was the pasta aglio e olio. There was something charming and relaxing about the atmosphere here.

Popped in for lunch; Massimo was his normal charming and unassuming self providing excellent service whilst his wife and son delivered fantastic food from the kitchen. Two of us ate one of the Specials which sounds pretty boring - lasagne - but wow! We both declared it the best we had eaten. The other two both had Picci pasta with... More
