A visit to cortona would not be complete without a visit to Caffe Tuscher. Family run and very welcoming. On the main street of Cortona with tables right on the road (no car access just pedestrians so a great people watching place). Tuscher also has lovely seating areas inside to use if you experience inclement weather (we were here in... More

This is a. Rey nice place right on the Main Street in historic Cortona. This family run operation does breakfast, lunch and drinks, no dinner. You can even find bacon here for breakfast! This is a great spot for afternoon drinks and after dinner grappa.

Mossimo and family are so lovely and welcoming. This restaurant has a great central location and don't miss the upstairs..... a nice place to stop for a glass of wine, even if you're not wanting a full meal (but it's a great lunch or dinner venue as well).

Love this place. This is near end of the tourist season in Cortona Italy, I am guessing, and the few stores we entered gave us some attitude and we we're thinking, "I'm not a big fan of Cortona, so far. After exploring the village for an hour on foot we decided it was time for lunch. We poked our heads... More

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.
