This was the first recommendation given to us by our hotel and was in the top two meals we are while in Cortona! A beautiful atmosphere inside (very romantic but seemed also family friendly), and exceptional service - the owner (we think) was a hilarious, high energy classic Italian - gave us free shots on the way out. It was... More

Great family restaurant. Lovely pasta Cinghale (wild boar) and fab steak. Nice wine list if a little predictable for the area.

Visited Bucaccia this evening with my wife and daugther. We started with wine which wad corked. Replaced but were not taken seriously and in fact were made fun off. Next we ordered 3 pastas to start. All the same. We got 2 delivered one was forgotten. We got the next one 15 min later. The dish was good. All three... More

I decided to treat the family and this was a super place to do it. We were the first people in, at about 12:45 on a Wednesday and were treated superlatively. The staff humoured me and bore with my laboured Italian and then switched effortlessly to English in their exchanges with my wife and grandchildren. After ordering, we were treated... More

Fantastic lunch with friends in Cortona. Beautiful restaurant on a small side-street with possible outdoor dining if you are a couple: the outdoor tables are set up for two. Inside:stone walls, charming atmosphere, and splendid service. Big portions so I recommend splitting your meal!

We just returned from a wonderfully-romantic evening at La Bucaccia that matches the charm of Cortona. We were seated outside on a beautifully cool evening by a charming and funny host. The service was attentive but not overpowering. The food was the highlight including fantastic sliced steak complimented by a bottle of fantastic SuperTuscan red. It was a great way... More

We stayed in Cortona for two weeks and ate at seven of the top restaurants as recommended by Tripadvisor. All were very good with varying degrees of specialisation, although on balance we tended to prefer the more traditional Trattoria. I had the tagliatelle al cinghiale (wild boar ragu) at most of them and was never disappointed. It is best to... More
