“Perfect Anniversary”
Reviewed 9 November 2012

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary in Cortona and picked La Bucaccia for our dinner celebration this restaurant is beautiful, the service was excellent the owners are constantly making sure that everyone is taken care of. We had read alot of reviews Rick Steves, Fodors and Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Our dinners were just incredible, Hot Liver Pate, White Beans, Sliced Beef with Rosemary,Homemade Salami spread on a crostini,and Beef Filet with Sangiovesse sauce. We had reservations and we were so glad that we did, when we left there were people outside waiting and hoping for a table. This is a must for anyone visiting Cortona, we look forward to our return.

“Fantastic food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

My wife and I were visiting Cortona for the day and stopped for lunch based on a guide book's recommendation. What a great experience! We ate outside since it was such a beautiful day. Great food, great service and extremely friendly. We talked to the owner and his wife who were over the top gracious. One of the BEST meals we had during our three week Italian vacation. Don't miss it!!!!!

“Excellent meal in heart of Cortona”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

We dropped in for lunch with friends and had a marvelous meal. The owner had just received some freshly pressed extra virgin olive oil and served it up on a toast. I never thought two simple ingredients could taste so good. All four of our main courses were excellent, and the wine the waiter recommended was excellent too. When I stuck my head into the kitchen door to say "graze" to the owner, he rushed out and insisted that we have some grappa. It was a close call, but we all agreed this was the best meal we had during our 2 weeks in Tuscany. No wonder La Bucaccia was named to Newsweek's 101 Best Places to Eat in the World.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 7 November 2012

We ate here twice on a recent trip to Cortona. We were certainly welcomed by Romano. His wife, Agostina, prepared our meals. I don't remember what I had by name but it was pork medallions in a wonderful sauce that featured bits of lardo. It was one of the most delicious dishes I have ever had.

After dinner, we chatted with both Romano and Agostina, drank some grappa and then the dancing started! Going back to Cortona this spring. La Bucaccia will definitely be on our list.

“Fabulous little ristorante”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

We found this wonderful place by climbing almost straight up from the parking lot outside the city walls. The chef and owner are great. We had a prix fix with 4 courses for a reasonable 30 euros I think. The inside was very quaint in a good way.See pic attached.
