We were here during white truffle season and just as the fabulous olio nuovo was available. We had white truffles on pasta and melted in pecorino cheese...fantastic. We also had the panzanella and a thick tomato soup that was also delicious. In addition, the owner came by with olio nuovo pressed from his own olive trees and house-made salami. The meal, atmosphere and service were all outstanding. Highly recommend!

I look forward to this place more than any other, after many visits already. During my last visit, Romano Magi and his wife Agostina took great care of me. Agostina's recipes and styles, often presented with flair by Romano, always are outstanding. The pictures say it all; after this serving of Pici Pasta with all that cheese, I was happy to use the steep hills of Cortona to walk it all off!

We had a wonderful evening in this cozy little family run restaurant. The owner Romano Magi, and his wife Agostina (his wife) who welcomed us as acquaintances and we left friends! The homemade cheese was delicious, the wine selection fantastic and the food was delicious! We laughed, we sang and rolled our of there hours later. The hand made pasta was fantastic and everything was very fresh- we even tried a new/fresh olive oil that had just come in that day. We had a wonderful evening and we will definitely be back.. When we head back in September I plan to sign up for the cooking class to learn how to make the pasta. Don't come to Cortona and miss this experience! Kim, Diane, Andrei- via monetti 8

The most memorable lunch experience we had during a four day stay in Cortona was at Ristorante La Bucaccia. An outstanding Tuscan menu, with food prepared to the highest degree of excellence, and a wine cellar that can only be described as magnificent. The owner and his wife are gracious hosts who love their work, and take great pride in making their guests feel a part of their family. Most highly recommended.
