“Our Favorite place in Cortona!”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

We travel to Cortona with our family every year and Tuschers is always, always, always a central hub for us. While it is a great spot for drinks (done perfectly by Massimo and Daniella) and to meet up with everyone, it is also an amazing place for a meal. You can hang out at the front bar area or have a seat at lovely tables downstairs or a more romantic spot upstairs with an overlook of the entry. The staff is very attentive, serving wonderful snacks/hors d' oeuvres if you are just there for a drink or two. Of course on the way into town we also stop at times for a cafe / cappuccino. For a place that is perfect for these situations it may surprise you that the meals are also top notch. The only draw back is that if we are not careful, we might spend our whole trip at Tuschers! It is a beautiful place and for a meal, a cafe, or drinks, you will not regret stopping in to see Massimo and Daniella!! Enjoy!!!!

“Our favourite spot in Cortona!”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

We first discovered Caffe Tuscher some 7 years ago during our first trip to Cortona and met Massimo and Daniella who had opened it only a couple of years earlier. We were delighted to see this trip (Dec 2013) that they are still going strong and offering the best coffee (illy coffee), pastries, breakfasts and lunches in town. We enjoyed a month of wonderful hospitality for most breakfasts and many wine evenings at this lovely venue. Right in the centre of the main street (via Nazionale), very easy to get to and has a very inviting ambience coupled with immaculate service from Massimo, Daniella and their two sons. Warm, friendly, very clean and comfortable so do not miss this one when in Cortona.

“Sleeper of a gem”
Reviewed 22 October 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 3 October 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.
