We have enjoyed La Bucaccia many times during the past four years. The food is very special without being pretentious. Romano and team make each meal a treat. We highly recommend.

Great restaurant interior with old wood beams and rock walls. Food was very good, with the beef cheeks and braised pork shank taking top spots.

We had a Sunday lunch at La Bucaccia one week ago and still rave about the fantastic ingredients used for a typical Tuscan cuisine. The food was amazing, the service delightful and very good wine list.More

Delicious food, great wines, fabulous service and atmospheric interior. A great choice for lunch or dinner in Cortona. Be sure to book as walking in does not work here.

I don't think they do. It is a very small environment, and the food seems more suitable to dinner.
