“Delicious!”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

This restaurant was recommended by our travel guide, Tuscany for the Shameless Hedonist, so we made a reservation well in advance. Our meal was very enjoyable. The food was delicious, the staff accommodating and friendly, and the ambiance was perfect (though maybe just a little bit loud). If we had to recommend one authentic restaurant in Cortona, this would be it.

“Best of Cortona”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

The owners of our villa recommended La Bucaccia for our final dinner in Cortona, and booked the reservation one week ahead. Good thing they did, as many customers were turned away,
in a very courteous manner. The ambiance is wonderful ! We choose the 5 course Michelin Menu, reasonably priced and the best meal we had in Tuscany. Would return again and again.

“Mediocre food, boorish owner”
Reviewed June 23, 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant based on its top trip advisor rating and we were quite disappointed. The owner was a very loud and overbearing character and made us feel quite uncomfortable (although others seemed to love him). He was very rude to two ladies who asked to turn the music, which was ridiculously loud, down a little so they could have a conversation. They promptly left - who could blame them? The food was averagely good and far from the best that we have had in Italy. Unfortunately I think this restaurant might be believing its own hype but for us at least it failed to deliver ...

“Romantic dinner”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

I was curious why is number one in Cortona.. So to celebrate my husband' birthday I call to reserve a table..
When we arrived the first impression was the courtesy, then the environment.. After you order your favorite food and drink better again.. The owner of this beautiful, one of-a-kind place is making an art of his job.. Fascinating!! Lovely restaurant !! Great food!!
