Best Restaurant in Ratoath by miles

Had bruschetta con funghi as a starter and jumbo prawns for main which is beautifully presented and tastes as good as it looks! Strawberry merginue and ice cream sundae for dessert finished off a lovely meal :)

As it's so popular with children (which aren't popular with me) and can be very noisy, we went early evening, about 1845ish and the noise level was much better. We both had the chilli beef salads for starters which were absolutely excellent, so tasty. My wife had chicken wings for her main and I had the new item on the... More

I can honestly say that I have never had a bad experience on the many different occasions I have been at La Bucca with my family and friends. The staff, hygiene, quality of the food are of an extremely high standard. Well done and I wish you continued sucess ...

They have lovely food. Service is ok-ish... The waiter was keen to get us out quickly in order to sell the table again..... not a cosy place at all to have a quiet diner since the noise is unbelievable when it is busy seems the interior design with no soft materials on walls etc is causing this.

For my birthday treat, we headed to La Bucca as we had really enjoyed our last meal there. I had Bruschetta Pomodoro to start, was delicious and my husband had Honey BBQ Ribs. He is still licking his lips in addition to a cool Erdinger beer. For mains we had Quattro P, and Sicilano Pizza which were both really tasty.... More

Nice spot, although can be quite busy/noisy at times. Food is very good, with a good selection on the menu with generous portions. Service very good and waiting staff very attentive.

I rate both restaurants of La Bucca both in Ashbourne and Ratoath as really good. Good décor and ambience, and real good quality food and well priced. I would suggest the early bird menu as excellent value and a restaurant chain really worth visiting. Staff are on the ball and attentive.

Regular here! Its great food and I love the Pints of Erdinger! Peri-Peri wings are amazing! Staff - how could you not love them. They are always so nice. I couldn't fault them. Only draw back is it can be a little loud - but not too bad!

This was my twelfth visit to La Bucca in Ratoath and it is consistently excellent in hygiene, service and value for money. Check it out and see their tenner fest deals.
