“Quintessential Italy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Just came back from a nice lunch at La Bucaccia. The up side of going in the off season is we had the place to ourselves. Great wine cellar:we had the best wine we have tasted in Tuscany: a merlot 2006 Leuta...Smooth and yet full bodied. The new olive oil was a treat on our insalata ! Best tiramisu ever ...Enjoyed every bit of it.

“Charming restaurant in Cortina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We chose this spot for lunch and were not disappointed. Below ground location in old wine cellar, owner took my husband to view his wine collection and helped choose a tasty Brunello to accompany our meal. Ambience and superb service made it memorable though food overall was less memorable. Pasta choices were the best.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

A truly memorable experience. Excellent food, good service, quintessential Tuscan ambiance, and the owner and his wife were gracious, attentive hosts. Our favorite restaurant in Tuscany.

“Great evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was very, very good, and the owner made us feel special. He fed our three year old and gave her a surprise when she finished her food. We will definitely go back!
