We arrived there by chance at the lunch hour. We did not have reservations and we were 7 persons but the manager made all the efforts to prepare a table for us.
The atmosphere is quite beautiful and they offered us appetizer and extra cheese and grappa from the house!
You have to go there!

La Buccacia lived up to its ratings in every respect. Wonderful food in an extremely charming atmosphere with an attentive and engaging staff. Don't miss it, when in Cortona.

This place was recommended by our villa owner and lived up to expectations. Its not a big place and we felt a bit crammed it was full (you need to book) and very nice inside. Prices were very reasonable and the quality high. My pannacotta flan (soufflé style) was delicious. The kids loved it too . We decided against the florentine steak as it's a dish big enough for 4. We saw others being served this and it looked great though. 3 of us had fillet steak cortona style and enjoyed very much. I had the wild piglet with apples and figs. It was delicious. A plate scraper. A shame that mains came without vegetables but our orders of fried potatoes were delicious and the roast veg small but very tasty. Desserts were fantastic. Cappuccinos nice. We were all very pleased with our experience. There's a 2 euro cover charge PP but service is then free. We'd recommend this place and would go back.

We were taken by friends to this charming restaurant, and the food lived up to its tantalizing and unusual menu.
The service matched the food and the wine list was full of very good local wines.
Having been around this area for many years, we were delighted to find such a wonderful place to return to and to take friends.

Had a wonderful meal at La Bucaccia on our last night in Cortona. We hadn't made a booking but decided to try it out anyway and were luck to get one as we arrived when they opened at 7pm. The food and service was excellent! I particularly enjoyed the chicken liver starter I had, as well as the beef fillet, which was so tender. The owner is quite a character and makes you feel very at home. The setting is warm and intimate. I would definitely recommend having a meal there whilst in Cortona!
