The best meal by far we had while in Cortona. Very traditional dishes, well prepared and served by a very friendly and helpful staff. The owner is a real character ... be sure to look him up if you go here.

My daughter got engaged and we had a celebratory dinner at La Bucaccia. The food was amazing, as was the service and beautiful atmosphere in this authentic Tuscan stone building built in 1662. But the owner, Romano, was the most fun! He celebrated with us...More

For many Americans, the kind of over the top attention foreigners sometimes get in restaurants in Italy can be fun and novel. It's a nice change from the US where staff can be artificially sweet and inauthentic. Romano, the guy who owns this place takes...More
