“The right Caffe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2012

I've been there several times during last years, everytime the service is excellent, friendly and the cappuccino is "The Cappuccino" !
If you're planning to pass trough Cortona, let's have a break there!

“Avoid at all costs”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2011

I don't know what standards the last few reviewers have but I can only agree with Rob Younger below. We were four people sat outside. Myself and my friend ordered pork but it was off the menu so we settled for roast chicken. It was crumbed, reconstituted chicken straight from the supermarket freezer and was awful, I sent most of mine back. A bottle of dreadful house white wine cost us 18 euro. I guess one pays for the views. We were never charged anywhere near this right through Italy. The waiter was sullen. I have to be fare and say my wife had a superb ravioli dish ( could also have been supermarket ) but there was no way we were going back! Once bitten twice shy, and staying in Cortona for two weeks we found some excellent places to eat. Read the other restaurant reviews but don't eat here.

“"sporco" é una porcheria!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2011

We have been to the Bar Signorelli many times in the last three years! We have come to know the owners, in the bar/restaurant business for the past 30+ years. Not only is the place spotless, including its immaculate "loo" (alas, frequented not necessarily by the customers only), the place can pass muster under any circumstances as it is lit better than any other bar in Cortona. Look carefully at its sandwich/pastries display - nothing is lingering there! Their sandwiches are the best - fresh crunchy bread, and if you feel like a dollop of mayo, you will get ( even if it is not a traditional Tuscan deal) . All food is prepared following your order - nothing is reheated. The same cannot be said of other eateries in town, where far a more expensive fare comes out of the freezer and microwave! And yes, they can give you a capuccino frappé on a hot day at a fraction of a Starbucks price, and so much better! Get a life!

“The best coffee in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2011

Caffe Bar Signorelli is not a restaurant per se – it's one of the friendliest bars where you can have a quick meal (home cooked), a drink (even of good single malt), and the best coffee ever – fragrant, strong and hot. Like in any bar, paper mats are de rigeur as is a cover charge – when you pay 1 euro for a cappuccino and 80 cents for a corneto, expect to pay more for a glass of wine or beer when it is served to you at the table in the Piazza. Yes, they have the best view of the Piazza, but they share it with another bar. So the Irish review was neither factual nor kind – perhaps, the result of one drink too many! ! We are frequent visitors to Cortona, and Bar Signorelli is our home away from home - we go there to have a bite, a drink, coffee of course, a friendly conversation with the owners and the regulars, and a review of the daily papers. Long live Bar Signorelli!

“great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2010

we just returned from two weeks in cortona, a place we travel to frequently each year. every morning we walk up to this cafe for morning coffee and pastries. always fresh food and friendly service. also stopped in for lunch one day. again, food was excellent and friendly service. we've never had any trouble with the bill or the attitude of the staff.
