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

Have visited this cafe twice in the last week and have enjoyed great cocktails each time. Family run and very welcoming. Lovely selection of complimentary fresh canapés served with the cocktails. Delicious. Have not had a full meal here but the food delivered to adjacent tables looked fab.

We always have drinks in Tuscher when we are in Cortona, be it morning coffee or cocktails before dinner. The owners are very welcoming and their homemade cakes and the snacks served with cocktails are delicious.

We were attracted by the menu offering home made pasta. As it transpired it is a family run business with the son in charge of the kitchen. Can only be described as delicious. The ravioli with walnuts and carbonara sauce and a tiny Viola superb. Homemade bread. Our first Tiramisu of the trip and truly the best I have ever... More

Caffé Tuscher offers a trendy but comfortable atmosphere for just about any occasion: casual drinks and aperitifs, breakfast, a cappuccino, lunch. Relax in the charming, plush seating while admiring the beautiful modern art on the walls. Chat with the friendly, professional family who proudly serve you. Ask about the owner's recipe that was published in Under The Tuscan Sun. And... More
