My family and I made reservations online on 2 different occasions however when we arrived for our dinner, the reservation was no where to be found. If unBle to accommodate online booking then it should not be an option. Instead we had a magnificent dinner at Preludio just around the corner. They were very nice and hospitable.

We found this on TAdvisor and thank goodness we did. Our lunch was faultless, fun and sublime service. A very atmospheric location matched by great atmosphere by the host. Thank you

We went in on a wim and found a gem. Amazing local food, lots of freebies like traditional soup, homemade free salamis and prosciutto. wine recommendation were simply spot on and so reasonable!! Be prepared for a host who is a lot more of a showman than your traditional British counterpart. We were offered free grappa. Just splendid.

My husband and I visited La Bucaccia for dinner on March 21, 2014 and sat in the bar area at the fireplace table. We had such a wonderful dinner that we made a reservation for the following evening which was a Saturday night. When we arrived for our 7:30 p.m. reservation we had the whole restaurant to ourselves and Agostina... More

Went to La Bucaccia with a last second reservation (which you probably will need one) and so didn't have the best table, but it was still worth it. I can see why some people would think the owners are a little overbearing, but that would be a person preference thing. I like that they take an interest in making sure... More

La Bucaccia is well known for his extremely good chef Agostina as well as for the charming host Romano. The style of the food is traditional tuscan but with a touch of creativity and it is of perfect balance and taste. High attention is put in the selection of high quality ingredients in order to deliver very delightful dishes paired... More

We went to La Bucaccia with some trepidation as we were warned by some in the town that it was a bit "hit and miss". Unfortunately, on the night we went, it was a miss. We went early for the first sitting, the service was adequate but not to the level a restaurant rated as the number of 80+ should... More

La Bucaccia is wonderful. The food, the service, the atmosphere make this place THE restaurant in Cortona. Also, if you haven't tasted fresh shaved pecorino and a glass of La Leuta Rosso then you have missed one of the many joys of life!

Given our strong review of this restaurant from our first visit, it would have been hard to top the experience. However, Romano and Agostina gave us a magical evening! Not only was the food superb (you MUST try the pici made in a pecorino rind), but the service and hospitality was just over the top. Everyone we encountered made us... More
