Great Italian food! Generous meals for good price and very nice service. I've been there a number of times and will definitely come back again.

We were a party of seventeen for a day-before-the Christening dinner. We were split into two tables near the doorway. The service was attentive and patient with us. The restaurant was packed and the kitchen under pressure, so the timing of the dishes wasn't ideal but understandable. The food was tasty but not exceptional. Recommended.

I have used this restaurant many times as a visitor and at first it was good. Recently I had a bad experience where the food was average and I was overcharged due to the credit card machine not allowing me to pay in Euros. The owner said by email he would compensate me next time but when I arrived he... More

We brought our Italian au pair to la bucca for her birthday meal with the family. We availed of the tenner fest menu where every meal was amazing. Our au pair verified the food to be very authentic Italian. The staff kindly put a candle in her desert and sang happy birthday which really made her night.

We arrived shortly after the Communion rush and the staff already had restaurant organised for the evening sitting. I had Chicken skewers for starter, la bucca burger for main & strawberry pavlova sundae for dessert. All were delicious & service was great, as usual!!

To summarise, good food & efficient friendly staff, Tennerfest is good value, although starters seem to have gone in price.

Yet another super meal experience in La Bucca. The female staff are obviously hand picked out of a model agencies portfolio. Even the tall, blond Polish(?) waiter was well presented if a little talkative. The Honey BBQ ribs were melt in the mouth & the Swissburger was sumptuous. The kids were kept happy watching the pizza chefs make each pizza... More

The perfect casual dining restaurant. Well trained positive staff. Good menu for the very hungry to the peckish. Food comes out efficiently and hot, the place always has a buzz and is spotless. The owner seems to have a genuine interest in keeping customers happy and it shows! If I had to nit pick I wish it wasn't as open... More

La Bucca, Ratoath,is an upstairs restaurant with a simple menu that caters for all. It has a mix of Italian-type and fusion-type dishes that are above average prices. I was there thrice and it was frequented by well-made up twenty-somethings who always have a lot to say! It made the dining experience much more interesting!!
