We had dinner in this restaurant after spending 10 days in tuscany.This was the worst restaurant we ate at. In each of the two octopus dishes we ordered, we found many hard pieces (bone like) that made the food unenjoyable. Apart from this the food was merely acceptable. We would not reccommend it.

The food was actually tasty, but the prices were not adequate for the amount of food that they were bringing! Ordering a second dish you expect it to be pretty filling, but at this restaurant you will have just four shrimps on a huge plate. More then that atmosphere is horrible. It seames that a place is run by cats,... More

We spent 10 days in the area and had fabulous food with the exception of this restaurant. Surly, unhelpful staff. Food so bad we hardly touched it. The waiter did not even question why we sent full plates back, he has probably done it time and time again. Much better restaurants in the area, I would rather go hungry than... More

When I decide to sit down in a restaurant by the sea side, there is only one thing I don't compromise: the quality of fish. I was addressed by La Buca from a good friend of mine, living nearby the Talamone area. He was frank and clear: good fish will never be cheap, so don't go searching around too much,... More

We went to la buca twice, as we actually liked the food even though we would think of it as quite expensive, considering the small portions (especially for italian standards). Talamone itself is an expensive place and la buca makes no exception to that. La buca does have a nice atmosphere. However, we were quite surprised to find the bottle... More

We went to dinner at La Buca on the recommendation of the clerk at our hotel. We hadn't read the reviews....which is good because we wouldn't have gone as they are way harsh. The restaurant has a very nice outdoor seating area which was full so we ate inside - in a room that seems to be built into a... More
