Description: Warm and welcoming, in the historical centre of Città di Castello, facing Piazza Gabriotti (Piazza di Sotto for the tifernati), one finds caffè Magi. Full of British pub character but with Italian elegance. On the walls you can admire the work of contemporary painter Robbie Duff-Scott, a refinded characteristic which makes even more pleasurable to savour a good coffee and much more. An excellent choice of draft beer, a knowledgable selection of liquors and particular attention is paid to the making of classic cocktails and aperitifs. Everything is enhanced by the wide range of international dishes courtesy of our kitchen. Open from 12.00 pm. until 12.00 am.Nel centro storico di Città di Castello, affacciato su Piazza Gabriotti (per i tifernati “Piazza di Sotto”), puoi trovare il Caffè Magi, un locale caldo ed accogliente, che armonizza carattere British ed eleganza Italiana. All’interno puoi ammirare le opere del pittore contemporaneo Robbie Duff-Scott, esclusiva caratteristica che rende ancora più piacevole sorseggiare un buon caffè, ma non solo: un’eccellente scelta di birre alla spina, una curata selezione di distillati, una particolare attenzione nella proposta dei classici dell’aperitivo e, per completare il tutto, ampia ed internazionale è la proposta della cucina, aperta dalle 12,00 alle 24,00.

On the Monday of mid April I went for dinner at this place with my friend who lives in Citta di Castello mainly because of my request. We had been there before for lunch and found the food really delicious, but certainly not on that Monday night!! Italians are very generous and famous for their warm greetings but the young woman at the counter had a rather stern stare at us. We both felt this cold reception but as we had pleasant previous luncheons we went in, basically inviting ourselves! The place was quite empty being a Monday night. I ordered a potato pie to start with followed by ravioli with anchovies, a rather unusual combination which I thought would worth trying. It took well over 30 minutes for the starters and my dish was cold and rather disgusting! I swallowed a few bites and finally asked my friend who conversed well in Italian to tell the (rather unfriendly) waitress that the food was cold. Did she take any notice? Of course not. Not even a pretence of an apology! The main dish was equally disgusting. My friend himself had a similar experience with his dishes. He ordered a guinness pie which was cold. Much to his surprise his side dish came up with more potatoes instead of the vegetables he ordered. We have tried several restaurants in Citta di Castello during my many visits but this was our worst culinary experience!
