“Sleeper of a gem”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We fell onto this spot one afternoon when it was raining. We ducked into to grab a sangria and split a pizza. The atmosphere is really nice and very relaxing. The sangria was really good and the pizza awesome. We returned the next day for a Rosso Antico cocktail which was crazy great. It was served with complimentary bruschettas. The owner was present and really friendly. We really loved this place.

“The best place for an aperitif”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

The advantage of this elegant cafe' in the centre of Cortona is the generosity with which drinks are accompanied by excellent 'crostini' and other special morsels, invariably good, intriguing and interesting. You can also choose to sit outside or inside, it is a friendly place, service is very good, and pets are welcome.

“Best Caffe in Cortona”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

There are certainly no shortage of caffes in Cortona. Most offering similar fare and experience. But, for something a little more unique and refined try Caffe Tuscher. It is conveniently located right on Via Nazionale. It is the ideal spot to sit outside and watch the Cortona parade go by. Service is completely un-intrusive and you can sit for hours and relax.
A family business, Caffe Tuscher is owned by Massimo and his wife Dani. Both of their sons work there as well. They take pride in providing quality food and drinks with a little "extra". The Illy coffee creations are delicious. And, Massimo is a master mixologist. If you don't know what you want, just ask Massimo or Dani and they will choose (or create) just the right thing for you! In the afternoon, aperitivi are accompanied by a generous complimentary plate of appetizers.
When the weather doesn't permit drinking and dining al fresco, they have a spacious restaurant space inside. Also, An upstairs loft is a quiet and cozy place to read or get caught up with email (they have free wifi for customers both inside and outside).

“Vibrant Street Cafe”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Caffe Tuscher is a real find and we have been eating here for a few years. A vibrant street cafe with an elegant indoor, air conditioned area. On this visit we stopped for lunch and enjoyed sharing an enormous antipasti platter with a wonderful selection of cured meats and delicious cheeses accompanied by a variety of freshly made breads. Excellent selection of wines and fabulous coffee. The service is fast and very friendly
Slight downside is that Caffe Tuscher no longer serves evening meals, which in the past have been a highlight of our holidays.
