We walked by La Buchetta on our way over the Ponta Vecchio bridge and made a reservation for dinner based on the menu and the inviting decor. The owner took our reservation. When we arrived for our reservation, the owner, again, greeted us and took us to our table. We were greeted right away and it was a wonderful experience... More

Yet another great stop in the up and coming Santa Croce neighborhood. The owner is a great guy, happy to regale you with stories about Tuscan food, and his own menu. Had a delightful lunch with a great mozzarella sampler followed by delicious carbonara!

The food was very good from pastas, huge pieces of steak, antipasto, sweets, everything was beautifully cooked and presented. What also makes this restaurant special are the 2 waiters who make you feel so welcome and converse with you. They are very helpful with suggestions about the various dishes. Prices are also very reasonable.

La Bushetta was recommended to us by our daughter who is studying abroad in Florence. She had a school commitment and wasn't able to join us for dinner, but told us it would be an excellent meal. She led us to the right place. The owners were very friendly and the food was delicious. It was the best risotto I've... More

Best gnocchi I've ever eaten in my life. We had four different pastas all were amazing but the gnocchi was so good nothing compares.

Just passed by after a visit around Florence and was hungry to see this restaurant. Checked from TripAdvisor and was surprised to see over a thousand 'excellent' and so went in to try. Ledio, the young man of 28 was just so nice to recommend the meat and pasta to us, which were both excellent. We just remembered it's the... More

We tried La Buchetta because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor and it happened to be located just downstairs from the apartment we rented. The first night we ate there, we did not have a reservation, but Leddio still accommodated us since we were early. He and Niccolo were so warm and friendly, and they ran the place effortlessly....
