On our final night in Tuscany, our hotel highly recommended that we drive to Cortona to try La Bucaccia restaurant. Oh, what a great dinner we received. From the antipasto, with an assortment of Italian cured meats, to the primi course of fresh pasta with shaved black truffles, and several secondi courses, which consist of veal with sage and butter,...

Food was average, not a great choice of dishes, limited and unimaginative wine list. The owner's attitude tends to be a tad OTT in displaying Tuscan hospitality. Not bad, but certainly not memorable.

I took my family to this charming restaurant in Cortona. We hadn't booked so took a chance. The friendly and amusing owner offered a 15 minute wait with a glass of wine whilst waiting. The building is small inside but old with a 1662 wine press adorning the side wall with a glass floor looking down into the cellar. Shown... More

My 2 cents, one of the best in Cortona. Owner Romano is a perfect host, after made reservation our table was not ready for 4 persons. Romano offered us a good glass of Brunello di Montalicino. The food is delicious, typical tuscan specialties and the wine card is a dream for wine lovers like me. It's not big, less than... More

Top restaurant in Cortona. According to Tripadvisor No.2, but I thing so, that are best restaurantes in Cortona. La zuppa und la pasta were 100%, but the local pork (chianina senese) was a bit boring. Purple and apple on the meat, it's a old mode, isn't? The staff is polite.

My wife, granddaughter and I spent 16 fabulous days in Italy in June. One of the days was my wife's birthday and this is the restaurant she chose. We had read a little about it on TripAdvisor and had high expectations. Our reservation for three was at 8:30 and as we neared the entry, the owner was standing on the... More

My partner and I ate here on our second night in Cortona. We were seated outside as the restaurant gets very busy due to it's popularity and the fact it is quite small inside - that was no bad thing though as they have a lovely view down over the valley. We had a delicious meal - lots of meats... More
