My friend and I were staying a night in Cortona and had been recommended La Bucaccia by our Airbnb host. While we showed up before other italians ate (7pm) we found the restaurant to be lovely and cozy. The head waiter, Romano, greeted us with great enthusiasm and spoke to us in a mix of english and italian, making many... More

Our group of 9 wandered in to La Bucaccia for a birthday dinner and had an amazing time. The owner and his wait staff took immaculate care of us. He basically ordered for us and we loved the wine, the starters, and all the mains. The highlight was a 1 kilo steak for the birthday boy that we almost got... More

One of the many restaurants visited this summer recommended by Marcello . Very good menu, wine list and attentive friendly staff . Like most restaurants here, steak holds pride of place, but there was much more on offer. If in cortona, worth the visit . Enjoyable

Returned here in Nov 2016 after coming the prior year. Six friends and we had the full monty - salumi, starters, pasta and mains. All wonderful, and the owner remains a treat. Glad I returned for a big meal as they delivered nice. Good value for the scale & quality of the meal.

Our daughter is a student at the University of Georgia in Athens, Ga, and UGA has a mini campus in Cortona. The town was very quiet this day, which we expected. We chose this restaurant for it was mentioned in Rick... More

This is our second visit to the restaurant. The food is quite scrumptious, the ambiance is charming and the owner is as fresh as his ingredients. Fine dining for a reasonable price, can't go wrong. We will definitely eat here again when we return to Cortona. Make a reservation, you'll need it.

As usual Romano sets the standards high. We had a great lunch,food was excellent and wine Romano suggested was perfect. Because of the small size of the room we were able to talk to other guests. This included 12 members of the local Caribiniere who were welcoming a new commander . I am sure you have heard people say ,eat... More
