All reviews homemade pasta rabbit ravioli profiteroles wild game three course meal courgette flowers fantastic food second courses worth the journey per person sauce dishes tuscany olives gypsy terrace
There’s no written menu here, but one of the English-speaking waiting staff will explain what’s available that day/evening. For the first course there’s a selection of exquisite homemade pastas (including gin occhi, pappardelle, ravioli) and sauces (such as wild game, gypsy, or courgette flower) which...you can mix and match to suit your taste. Giovanna really has ruined having pasta anywhere else! Second courses are also homemade, and are often based around locally hunted meat (rabbit with chestnuts, or wild boar and olive stew). For tables of more than 4 it’s a good idea to ask for a selection of first and second courses, which means you can try several different dishes. Desserts, again, are homemade and delicious (the profiteroles are to die for), so be sure to save some room! For a three-course meal, with wine, you can expect to pay between €25 and €30 per person.More
We've been here twice and had great experiences sitting by the fire in Winter and out on the terrace in Summer.The speciality of the menu must be the pasta. We asked for a selection and the waitresses kindly bought us portions of 4 pasta dishes....Our favourite was their ravioli which melted in our mouths.
The service is friendly and helpful. The team speak English which is essential as the menu isn't written down.
We found our meals to be good value. We would have paid more for the relaxed atmosphere, beautiful surroundings and homemade food.More
I can only say that this was the best food I had in Italy.
Ate here 3 times in a week.homemade pasta absolutely delicious.
Cream puffs and chocolate cake were the best.
Thank you so much to Luisa,Enrico,and Joanna for making my stay in Vico...a wonderful one.More
This little gem sits in the quiet little mountain village of Vico Pancellorum. Vico can be seen from my terrace in the village of Limano which sits 600 meters high and facing Vico. The Buca is a rustic little place where locals go to enjoy...home cooked meals. Pastas are hand made and the ingredients all local. The tagliatelle al cinghiale are not to be missed as the tortelli. The room is modest with a big fireplace in the centre and the staff are friendly and efficient. Their Tuscan humour adds to the charm of this hidden gem.More
We arrived on our holiday in Vico Pancellorum and initially collected the keys for our holiday accommodation from what appeared to be an unassuming local cafe bar. It was ferroagosto (bank holiday) and all the shops were closed. We tried to book a table at...the restaurant but it was fully booked. My wife explained in basic Italian we had no food and 3 hungry children.They sorted out an impromptu takeaway of pasta ragu, bread and wine for 5 for 25 Euro plus milk for the morning. It was delicious and great value. We booked for later in the week and had a superb meal. Spinach and ricotta ravioli, taglitelle with gypsy sauce and courgette risotto. These were the 3 primi options we went for. I'm not a massive fan of pasta but this was sublime. Main courses of guinea fowl with sweet onions, rabbit with olives, ribs with pine nuts and wafer thin pork in it's own juices followed. All delicious. Dessert mostly included panna cotta but I went for the blackcurrant torte. Wonderful. 25euros a head. This included a litre of house red, water, a large bottle of beer, lemon soda and 3Aperol spritz as well as the cover charge. The restaurant is pleasant, the staff lovely and the food superb. Drive the mountain road. It is well worth the trip.More
Such a great place with incredible food and a chill, friendly vibe. Lovely wine selection and the best home made pasta I’ve ever eaten. We went back three times. Buca di Baldabò is a gem not to be missed.
Chose to come here on the last evening of our week-long stay in this lovely part of northern Tuscany. So glad we did! It wasn't very busy when we were there, but it's still advisable to book in advance. We ate out on the terrace,...which has a lovely view and a chilled ambience. And the food... well, it certainly lived up to expectations. Absolutely delicious pastas (though the risotto seemed a bit more al-dente and less creamy than the Milanese style), and wonderful meat second courses (lamb for me, pork ribs for the others) to follow. Dreamy chocolate desserts. The house wine was easy to drink, and a bit more refined than we drank in other places. Highly recommended.More
