Without any doubt one of the best restaurants we have been eating. The tastes are amazing! It's not only the quality of the ingredients, but also the passion, love and enthousiasme going into it. Unsurpassed and a recommendation for anyone visiting Cortona of any place within one hours drive from it!

Absolutely wonderful meal. My son age 7, a picky eater, whispered to me during the meal that he thinks that this is "the best restaurant in the world". My wife, daughter and I believe that it is certainly one of them. The homemade salami was amazing, the pastas out of this world, the meat was wonderful and the desserts (prepared... More

As always trip advisor doesn't let you down. We spent our wedding anniversary here and it was perfect. Such a lovely and lively atmosphere. Food top quality. You must order the meringue desert and see what happens when the owner brings it over and constructs it at your table - it's an experience!!! All In all great.

We were enchanted and delighted with food, atmosphere and service in this place. The owners contribute a lot to our good time with their engagement, interest and friendly approach to clients. You will find there the essence of the Italian cuisine and the extreme joy of a well served dish and drink. Excellent food, excellent wine. We would be happy... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to eat here without a reservation at 9.30pm but we only just managed to be squeezed in. The food was delicious and the prices very reasonable. My husband had chingale pappardelle followed by wild piglet in apples and prunes and I had pasta with the most delicious tomato based sauce followed by sliced... More

I was surprised to read the negative reviews of this charming, quintessential Tuscan restaurant and believe it to be worthy of it's Michelin star! Having traveled all over Italy for many, many years and having lived in NYC for 15 where I have eaten at nearly all of the top ranked restaurants, I can say that this was a memorable... More

Typical Tuscan cuisine. This is probably one of the best places in Cortona, if not the best. Not cheap but the Quality of the food and wines deserves a visit

La Bucaccia was great, great, great. The cozy atmosphere is perfect. The service is top-notch, and the staff is very generous. The food was absolutely delicious...the olive oil tasted like it had just been pressed moments before we got there. You cannot go wrong here...it really is just a fantastic restaurant.

We have been to Cortona on four occasions; however we had never dined here until our most recent trip. The ambiance inside the restaurant is great; they store wine all along the walls of the dining room. The husband/owner served as the host and sat all the guests; he was great. We were offered a complimentary cold soup after we... More
