“Good atmosphere”
Reviewed June 1, 2011

I found this lovely bar and coffee shop on my second day. I visited as much as I could. Their ice cream and cakes looked wonderful. Very clean tables, bar and friendly staff. I had coffee one day and then early evening drinks with free bar nibbles another evening. They have a list of wines and prices you can choose from. Prices range from 4-6 euros per glass but this includes bowls of crisps and little nibbles on the bar. e.g salami, olives, bite size sandwiches etc.
Lively friendly and welcoming.

“Hot Chocolate like you've never had before! And the Angels sang!”
Reviewed April 2, 2011

We tucked in to get a cappuccino on a rainy day and it was wonderful. While we sat to dry off, we saw 2 Ladies order a drink and we asked what is that? And they told us Hot Chocolate. We told them 2 please! Absolute heaven!Very friendly staff and charming place to stop and visit. If you are in town you have to stop in!

“Great place for breakfast or a gelato”
Reviewed October 7, 2010

Lovely atmosphere, good coffee, delicious pastries.

Open early and late, the perfect place for a nightcap grappa.

“Morning break”
Reviewed August 10, 2010

During our stay in Volterra end of July (Podere 4 km outside of Volterra) we used to drive to the city in the morning to buy fresh bred from the a local forno (bakerie) (around 7 AM, it was not even that easy to find one open) then we used to go to the wonderfull Pasticceria/Bar to drink a coffee and to eat a fine pastry among locals going to work (we expeced the 2nd day the two young Post Ladies!!!! and Car was really parked one house away)
Other drank just an espresso ot others had time to read the news papers... Is it like this all year long as it was NOT for the summer tourists. Decoration is quite hetecoclyte. If you have an old strange bank note you can have it fixed above the bar!!!!
