Authentic, genuine Italian cuisine made with love.

I was taking photos nearby when I got on the Trip Advisor app to search for dinner options. La Buchetta popped up and had great reviews. The owner, Maurizio, greeted us, sat us down and started to explain each dish in great detail. You could tell how passionate he was about his food. We ordered the... read more

If your not careful, you could walk past and miss this gem of a restaurant! We ate here twice during our four day stay, and we would go back again if we were staying longer. We had a magnificent steak the first night and homemade pasta carbonara the second. Both were excellent but the carbonara was unlike any pasta I've... More

Having read excellent reviews of La Buchetta, we made a reservation for dinner here on our final evening in Florence. The service was fantastic and the waiters were really friendly and welcoming. Make sure you book a table here as it gets very busy and you are likely to be turned away as it's so popular. A must when in... More

WOW!!! Can I tell you how delicious every single dish here was!!?? Well no need, you must see and taste for yourself. We were on the hunt for a classic florentinean style steak or Bistecca and did we find it!! Its a little street away from all the tourist attractions and they did not disappoint. From their wine selection, to... More

This was probably one of the best restaurants that I went to while in Florence. It is a small place but the food and the friendly service are impeccable. The ravioli that they make is fantastic, and the Florentine steak is just superb. The chocolate cake that they serve tastes akin to pure dark chocolate, and to top it all... More

This restaurant really lived up to our expectations. We were travelling on a limited budget so we didn't fully appreciate the diversity of our menu, but anyone will find something to their liking in this restaurant's menu.
