This is our second review of La Bucaccia. We ventured out in the off season and we were not disappointed with the seasonal cuisine. For my second time in Italy, I had tartar of cinghiale and it was phenomenal! Served upon a mirror plate, I didn't want the dish to end. We enjoyed local Cortona Merlot (desiderio) and the staff...

The food is so good at so many restaurants in Cortona, as are the surroundings, so what else makes a difference? The service. Here the service, whilst still friendly is more upmarket then we experienced elsewhere

A friend and I went to lunch and experienced one of the best four course meals I ever had. We share two Antipasti, Crostini with chicken livers, and a vegetarian plate of polenta, spinach quiche, porcini mushrooms and spinach. It was fresh and excellent. My primo was a pappardelle with wild boar ragu cooked to perfection. My secondo was Chianina... More

My wife and I recently spent a day and evening in Cortona. We at lunch at La Bucaccia. It is very romantic and I would recommend having dinner there instead of lunch. Romano and the staff were very friendly and the service was wonderful. We had the tasting menu, and the food was average but the atmosphere was lovely.

we were in Cortona July 2015, my daughter was married. The grooms dinner for our small group was held at La Bucaccia. The service was great and food as well. Since we had a larger group the menu was limited but was very good food. My son in laws parents made sure there was entertainment at the restaurant that night.... More

As far as the experience goes, the interior is lovely, but the owner was a bit too loud and over the top. Nothing was especially wrong with the food at dinner, but nothing was especially great, either. After a 2 week stay in Italy, primarily in Umbria and Tuscany, I rank this meal as somewhere in the middle of the... More

The place is very small, it only has a handful of tables. The place is very nice, stone walls and wine display are set all around the dining area. The wine selection is very broad, with lots of choices both from local wineries and from some of the best areas in Tuscany: Montepulciano, Montalcino, Chianti are well represented, as are... More
