Perfect start to our adventure into the Rome Countryside! This was the first stop our driver made while showing us the sights, sounds, aroma and taste of the towns outside of Rome.

None of the staff spoke English, so our driver placed our order with the server and she delivered it to us on their outdoor patio. It was very early in the morning, the town was just waking up and sipping coffee and munching on a fresh made chocolate croissant was the best way to welcome the day!

Ham and cheese focaccia 5 euros, can of lemon soda 4 euros which is a bit steep.
The food was fine, the cafe is self service and after the warm, muggy atmosphere in the museum a cold drink with a glass of ice was very welcome. Not fine dining, no view but a seat and a snack.

This 'Caffe' is in a prime spot right next to the Castello dei Conti Guidi, which houses part of the Leonardo Museum. As the town was teeming with tourists on the day I visited, I went to this Caffe for a quick lunch. One person was in charge of everything: heating up pizza or focaccia, pouring wine, opening bottles with a small corkscrew, buzzing tables inside and outside .. The 'jack of all trades' seemed to be frustrated. The piece of pizza I ordered was laden with gooey cheese and not the best I ever had; the house red was OK, and water was available in bottles from the fridge.
I fail to understand why the city of Vinci, which is visited by half a million people each year, does not make an effort to put a capable restaurateur, pleasing restaurant, good food and friendly staff in such a prominent spot. I don't mind self-service, it can be interesting to visually inspect the available food before ordering. I do mind and don't care for bad food, grumpy staff and sub-par atmosphere in a place so close to a world-renown site.

Every review here is accurate. If you want to get a drink or snack at the Da Vinci museum you will pay through the nose. Why would you with the choices available in the town which is only 2 minute walk back down the hill. Take your own or go back down the street. Not disgruntled, just stating observations.

OK it was a wet windy and dull day. Four of us walked in for coffee and cake mid morning prior to vising the museum

Nobody else in the place and we were sullenly served cappucino costing €3.50 a cup! Even in the heart of Florence I do not expect to pay such a high price in a nondescript tired looking bar. Best avoided.
