Fantastic

We have had many great meals here. The best was a New Year's meal with uncountable courses. Even the Italians were full! Much wine and spoke and understood Italian perfectly by the end of the night.

My wife and I had one of our best dinner ever. The dishes are very accurate and the food is so delicious! Romano is a good host, each customer gets personal attention.

The food was very delicious but the service was not so good. Although we have booked in advance, we had to wait around 7min to be seated and 10min to get the menu.

Not bad food. Have had much better though. Have become far too busy due to TripAdvisor. Thanks and see you again Tuscany.

Great setting for a lunch with friends. The owner is very jolly. The food is excellent as was the owner's wine recommendation. Portions are larger than expected. My disappointment was my coffee - weak, no froth on the cappuccino .

It is small place with real Tuscan food. We were there for lunch and the owner was very kind and entertaining (gave us a complimentary farro soup taste) The ingredients are fresch and the olive oil very good. Recommended!

This was our second visit to La Bucaccia. the first was four years previous. Not only was the food superb, but Romano (the owner) really makes his guests feel at home. we will return when we go back to Cortona. We had fresh Cantucci vin Santo for desert - fantastic.

The service, the food & the wine are all a perfect blend of everything that is right with dinning at Ristorante la Bucaccia. We loved every second we were in this fabulous restaurant. Can't wait to go back.
