“Great Food, LOVED the experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

We went to La Bucaccia as a recommendation from the hotel we stayed at in Chiusi because the manager said this was a place he would go to for dinner. We LOVED IT! We were on our honeymoon and spent a good portion of the late evening talking with the owner. The food was wonderful, but the whole experience of conversing with the owners completely made the evening. We are heading back to Italy for our first anniversary later this year and have already planned out the night we can return. Can't wait!

“Cortona Must-do Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

This was our second visit to Ristorante Buccaccia in the past eighteen months and we were more pleased than ever with our meal, the atmosphere and the engaging experience we had with Romano, the ower and his wife.

This most recent visit was with three other couples, our traveling companions. We were seated in the center of this quaint and charming Midieval, Cortona restaurant - and Romano was in his prime with antics and fun, to which we were only happy to participate. (see post by another guest on May 18th...I think we are the "English speaking mob" he referred to).

I think we would all say that being at Buccaccia was a highlight of our entire trip based on the fabulous food offerings and the dining experience.

“Another enjoyable meal and a great time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Husband and Wife owners are so engaging that it is difficult not to enjoy yourself. And the food is quite extraordinary. I have been more than six times enjoying different menu items each time, you must try it during your stay in Cortona. There are always seasonal specialities which you must consider.

“Very satisfying experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

My party of 3 was squeezed in tonight for an excellent dinner in this gem of a restaurant. The service was excellent, the location was great, the atmosphere wonderful, but above all the food was extraordinary.
Apart from the timeless bruschettas, we ventured into trying some other local specialties (including the piglet filet with apples and prunes), which all turned out to far exceed our expectations. The meal was accompanied with a very nice local Syrah. All in all, we felt that restaurant fully deserves its current number 1 ranking. And clearly many people shared our opinion as the place was packed.
