We prepare all our food at the Fat Tuscan Cafe using only the freshest ingredients available.  Our traditional recipes use only natural ingredients which means we never use products with artifical coloring or preservatives.  Our quality is important to us and we even go so far as to roast our own meats, insuring our quality is the best in town.  Our pasta sauces are all made fresh and from scratch from traditional recipes handed down to us from our Italian heritage. We are also know for our unique and flavorful soups.

We invite you to come in and enjoy the historic ambiance of the 1908 Vidal house on the edge of Gainesville's Downtown Historic District and perhaps sample one of our fresh French Press coffee's or espresso's and escape into our authentic European Cafe experience here at the Fat Tuscan Cafe.
