We sat outside on a Sunday afternoon and watched the world go by! This little bar is owned by Daniela's brother who has the incredible restaurant next door. They actually share the kitchen. The owner and the servers treated us royally and with a smile. The food was wonderful and the portions were just right. We ended up coming here... More

What a great find, a tiny bar where the service is friendly and spirits are on a free-pour basis. If you sit at the outdoor tables you can watch the majestic Tuscan hills in the distance, a great place to meet and speak with the locals, chat with friends or simply meditate. This little bar is a great all rounder,... More

Pleasant,quick and tasty, I was on my way back to the hotel and didn't want a big lunch since I was after a good massage. Picked locally baked goods, with fresh fruit juice. just perfect.

No trip to a small Tuscan town is complete without visiting the Bar Centrale. This one was conveniently located in Piazza Matteotti. It's great for coffee or a cool drink on a hot afternoon. Bar snacks are always great as well.

Great place for people watching any time of the day - simple and basic, but great atmosphere and excellent for a snack any time of day. Fabulous views from the terrasse across the little square.

Been there a few times now. Place typically well visited. Killer view from outdoor seatings. Seems to have a decent selection of bar food and drinks (check the selection of local beers in the fridge on the back of the room). Locale a bit untidy though. Downside is that we always felt an unwelcoming attitude from the staff - e.g.... More

I love this place - great, friendly service. I ate there three times in a five day period. Good value/high quality. I came for the wi-fi and came back because of the food, the gelato, and the friendly service. The view from the outside tables is wonderful.

Staying with 3 other couples in the area for 2 weeks, we took advantage on several mornings of sitting outside and enjoying cappuccinos and lattes at Bar Centrale, while enjoying the gorgeous view of the Tuscan countryside. What a great way to start the day! Also a great place to stop for an evening gelato while watching the twinkling lights... More
