I first visited Buchetta with a friend of mine a couple of days after it opened. The street presence of La Buchetta is warm and inviting and had caught my eye even before my friend suggested we meet there for a drink. I've visited Buchetta for just drinks, drinks and dessert, and of course for a full Italian meal. It is a dimly lit, romantic spot that is intimate and cozy all at the same time. The back room offers a beautiful view of a historic courtyard, which is best viewed if you come during lunch. The wine selection is extensive and the menu is perfectly selected with fresh ingredients daily.
I come from the city of Chicago, and I am certainly a self described "foodie". I've lived in Florence for over 2 years, and the service provided by Maurizio and his staff at La Buchetta cannot be rivaled. They make you feel comfortable and give intuitive suggestions for a meal you won't forget! I've dined at Buchetta a dozen times and I am NEVER disappointed. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Florence, and I wouldn't be surprised if people love it so much they go more than once on their trip.
The house antipasto tray filled with meats, cheeses and crostini is a great way to start, or share with wine for a light dinner. You can't leave La Buchetta without trying one of the scrumptious desserts! My favorite is the homemade cheesecake.
If you want an unforgettable dining experience in Florence, La Buchetta is your number one spot to hit. You won't be disappointed!
