La Bucca has been our favourite restaurant in Dunboyne since it first opened its doors a few years ago. There is always a great atmosphere, the service is always friendly and efficient and the food, without exception is always delicious.
We were there on Friday night, the 24th of June. We had our favourite table over by the window. To start I had chilled avocado soup which was new to the menu. It was fresh and delicious, although the portion was probably a bit on the large size. (Not a bad complaint to have really). My husband had a prawn starter which he loved too.
For mains, my husband had a fillet steak which he said on more than one occasion was absolutely delicious. Succulent and juicy and cooked just as he had asked. I had my favourite Don Aldo pizza. You might thing "Pizza? That's a bit boring!" But you would be very wrong. Don Aldo is like Peking Duck on a pizza. Shredded duck, hoi sin sauce, spring onions, ginger, pickled cucumber etc. Delicious!
Sadly I had no room left for my favourite sticky toffee pudding. Next time.
La Bucca has something for everyone, pizza, pasta, sea food, burgers and there are always specials to choose from too.
It's family friendly, but is also ideal for large groups or for a romantic meal for two.
I'm looking forward to our next visit already.
