Traveling around the Tuscan region of Italy it is not always easy to find a great restaurant for lunch. La Bucaccia was not only open but busy with appreciative patrons including us. We came around 1:30, which is still lunch time here, and got a great table for four. The owner, who is also the Chef, came out to meet us and helped us to make our selections.

We selected a local inexpensive wine,O'Lillo! by Toscana and enjoyed it very much. The salad was great with locally grown tomatoes and lettuce. Upon the advice of the Chef I had the Medieval "Bauletti" (pork shoulder) glazed with Acacia Honey and apples and it was delicious!

When we return to Cortona, this restaurant will be on our list for Dinner.

We celebrated our wedding in Cortona on the 6th of october 2012. We chose la Bucaccia for the wedding dinner, and we are so glad we did. It was excellent! The owners went out of their way to make the evening perfect. The food was delicious, absolutely unforgettable. The service was perfect too. A couple of days ahead, the owner helped us put together a typical local meny, and we could just sit down and indulge in all of the wonderful courses they brought us.
The atmosphere was great, authentic, just the way we like it to be.
We will definitely come back the next time we visit Cortona! Thank You!

If you are staying in Cortona, this fabulous restaurant is a must. The food, wine and service was
outstanding. The waiters were perfect from the time you entered until you leave. The owner personally
comes to each table to greet you with a welcoming smile. The interior is warm and inviting, simply
gorgeous. I promise that this will be a dinner that you will not stop talking about. Make reservations please. This will definetly be one of your favorite places to return and dine. It will be a dining
experience that you will not forget. Enjoy.

Our second trip to Cortona and our second visit to La Bucaccia. A friendly, family-run restaurant in an old wine cellar provides great ambiance to match the great food.

This is a busy spot so make reservations and be prepared that you may need to reserve a few days in advance. Both of our visits were in shoulder season (September/October) but still reservations were not easily had. The popularity of La Bucaccia and the limited space makes some tables a bit tight but the friendly atmosphere means that diners feel comfortable and enjoy the experience.

The food in consistently good but, to qualify this, not anything that you can't get from two or three other restaurants in Cortona - and you should try to enjoy them all. Good food is abundant in Italy and, certainly, in Tuscany. You won't be disappointed with La Bucaccia.
