Popped in here for a snack. Very nicely decorated with lots of delicious things on view. We had delicious cakes, chocolate and coffee. We will be back here for more delicious treats.

An excellent choice of flavours are available and the prices were good too. 1.8 euros for two scoops in a cup, would highly recommend

This place is absolutely beautiful inside and the gelato's were the best we have ever had. There are also lovely tarts and pastries. It stays open late so definitely worth a visit

Nice and well priced gelato was ruined by poor customer service - after checking they accepted card on order we were rudely and patronisingly informed that paying by card in Italy was 'a problem' by the bald gentleman at the counter.

Every time we stay in Volterra we take breakfast or lunch at L´Incontro. It has a good atmosphere, you find residents and tourists together drinking delicious espresso and wonderful snacks.

Dropped in for breakfast. Quality of both savoury and sweet pastries and sandwiches superb, and excellent coffee. Best of all such great value. We returned several times during our stay. Turns into a great wine bar in the evening.

It is a bar-restaurant for locals and foreigners as well. The ice creams, chocolates and pastries are excellent. You can eat simple food with the best tuscan wines. Very interesting decoration.
