We visited four times during our two week stay in Chiusi in June 2013. The pizza is great - cooked in a wood fired oven - with fresh ingredients and a very thin crisp crust. The mixed vegetables are also wonderful. They are friendly and gracious hosts, and the young server spoke enough English to help us order. The other patrons seemed to know each other, coming and going, and greeting each other warmly - it seemed like a local family hangout. With a carafe of house vino rosso, it's a great experience.

(I notice many of the Italian reviews give this restaurant three stars but call it "excellent" in the text. I think the average of 3.5 does not do Il Bucchero justice.)

Pizza here is just the best!!! Thin, crispy with great flavours. No problem adding extras or altering the menu. If you like pizza you need to visit Il Bucchero!! There is a very lovely terraza, covered with a vine that has masses of hanging bunches if grapes in the summer. Perfect!

Great pizza. wood fired. they are so nice there too. Will make you any type of pizza you want, whether it's on the menu or not. Tiramisu to die for. Super fresh and homemade.

We dine all over the world. London, Paris, New York, Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei, Tokyo and live in the SF Bay Area. We are used to good food. I have to say that this was one of the most amazing dinners we've had. The food is for the best word to describe "clean". I.e. not fancy, not an overdone assault on your pallette. This is good honest clean home style italian. We loved it. They let the food be the center piece and it needs nothing else.
