Bar Centrale

Bar Centrale was established in 1940 and is one of the oldest bars of Sarteano. It is located in the main place in a palazzo of the 14th century. Beautifully restored arches and a terrace with view over the main place distinguish its ambience. Perfect spot to savor Italian Dolce Vita of piazza.

The bar was designed to offer maximum comfort and a sense of well-being to its guests. All products are chosen with special diligence. Only the best products come in our cocktails and coffees. We pay attention to every detail.

During the last renovation a pastry shop was added that prepares pastries and snacks on order.
