We first came to La Bucaccia about eight years ago, and the experience then was excellent. Over the years we have come back and have been impressed that the restaurant just continues to get better in both the front and back of the house. The restaurant is family run with the husband taking care of the front with great care... More

Excellent food, service not to be forgotten - it will last long in our memory. Tomassio, the waiter, was very efficient, the eccentricity and character was provided by the owner.

We were here on the 29th of August 2014. The place is small but comfortable. The food was excellent typically prepared with tuscany products and the price adjusted for the quality: 100 euros for 2 people including a bottle of wine (22 euros). Impressive the wines offer, with abundant different products from Tuscany and the rest of Italy. A negative... More

This restaurant has a lovely interior. However, perhaps the reviews set our expectations too high for the food and overall experience. We had better meals with warmer welcomes elsewhere in Cortona.

We went to Bucaccia only one time for lunch during our stay in Cortona and honestly speaking it wasn't the best place we want to in Cortona. The atmosphere was marvelous and you can't argue on that, however the food, at least the one we had, was not the best. As our appetizer we ordered grilled porcini mushrooms, which were... More

After reading that La Bucaccia had the reputation of being the best in Cortona I made our reservation for the first night we would be in that area before we even left home. It was a chilly, windy and rainy evening and after all the climbing to get to Cortona we were so happy we didn't cancel our reservation. We... More

We went there on the basis of other good reviews, whilst travelling through the Tuscan hillside town. Having sat in the main square and had a couple of drinks soaking up the atmosphere we got to the restaurant at 7.30, by which time it was already pretty full. Really good, if short menu but all good. Starters of chicken livers... More

This has to be our favourite restaurant. We went there several times last year and in our short week this year we haven been twice, with the third reservation already made. A family-run restaurant, where the wife is the amazing chef and the husband (who makes cheeses and sausages himself) is such an entertaining and friendly man, always making the... More
