On you way home be sure and ask for those things that will travel well, certainly take some home. The Chocolate does bring smiles to your friends at home.

Located on Via Nationale in historic Cortona this is a great place for coffee and pasteries. The types offered vary from day to day. We often bought some in the evening to have with coffee in the morning during our stay in Cortona.

Loved it all! From the wife of the owner who served me and my family to the history of how it's been in the family for 4 generations! Over 100 years old but wow fresh pastries and amazing espresso! Have the afogado! The sorbeto was delicious too!

While touring the streets/sights of Cortona stop in for a pastry. This shop is busy but the short wait is well worth it.

A simple, not fancy place, right at the via Nazionale in front of Palazzo Caselli. You look at the freshness of the pastries the smell of the cafe and you cant resist it.Afterwards, you will continue to dream of the good stuff from your home...

Whenever we are in Cortona it has become a tradition to visit Pasticceria Banchelli. From the time it was in another location on the same street and was primarily a take away bakery to now, a large, airy restaurant that serves the best cakes, pastries and coffees. If you like coffee and ice cream, be sure to ask for "Caffe... More

I always look forward to stopping in at this bakery for a coffee and some cookies when I visit Cortona. On my most recent visit to Cortona this past Oct, 2015, I looked up and down Via Nazionale for the bakery which I usually recognize by the luscious pastries in the window. I was despondent when I realized the bakery's... More

Each morning, for six mornings, we strolled to Pasticceria Banchelli for cappucino and cafe americano, as well as a sampling of delicious pastries. The selection of fresh baked pastries was broad, so there is something for everyone! Service was efficient (and patient!)...a perfect way to start the day.

While visiting the center of Cortona on a hot sunny day, we stopped here for coffee and a pastry before moving on. We were lucky to get one of the few tables outside (in the street); inside there is seating and air conditioning. The place is bright, clean and has that modern look. The coffee is excellent and the pastries... More
