The 2 of us ate at La Buca di Ipo one evening without making a reservation.
An easy trattoria style restaurant with traditional Tuscan dishes and fish courses.
Food wise, no complaints. We ate well and we were quite satisfied.
Slow and kind of stressed service.
Affordable prices.

Thank ByeByeBlues7

“Poor quality”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

we stumbled upon this restaurant because there was nothinh else open in the area. Initially, we thought 'what a shabby restaurant' but after seeing all the locals eating here we decides to give it a try. The antipasti, a mix of differnt chees and meats, was reasonably good. The main course was below average, with cold meat on the tagliate. The place had a strange atmosphere with mob-like types walking in and out. also, the chef must have been out to the street several times to talk to the customers. This seems nice but when he is coughing in his hand and wiping his hands off on his clothes, before walking back into the kitchen, this is not a pretty sight.

I do have the feeling that it could be better in this restaurant seen that all the tables were filled with locals, howver I don't feel like taking the effort to try again.

Questi signori evidentemente sono abituati a posti diversi dalla Buca di IPO.............. Se mi hanno visto fuori a parlare con i clienti è solo per cordialità, e poi i suddetti devono sapere che le mani le lavo tutte le volte rientro in cucina. Evidentemente nei paesi bassi sono abituati a mangiare in angusti e sterile strutture fredde come sono loro.......... Comunque se la cordialità è un difetto, ci dispiace..... provate a gustare il cibo e godervi l'animo delle persone. IPO

“We Come Back Every Year”
Reviewed 19 December 2012

Every year we come to Italy and stay in Moncioni in the mountains not far from Montevarchi. We frequently eat at la buca di ipo with our friends Bob and Ally. The pizzas are great and there's a good wine list. We usually sit outside because inside it's usually a mob-scene. This place is very popular with the locals and is always crowded. We'll be back when we return to Italy next year.

Great pizza, great atmosphere, great prices. The sort of place Tuscany does so well. Reserve if you want to eat outside.
