We arrived in Cortona for just a short visit on our way from Florence to Rome on Thanksgiving day. Our daughter is a student at the University of Georgia in Athens, Ga, and UGA has a mini campus in Cortona. The town was very quiet this day, which we expected. We chose this restaurant for it was mentioned in Rick... More

Incredible location, service and food. I can't wait till I return. The restaurant itself was stunning, recommend reservations in advance, one of my top restaurants in Tuscany.

We ate here for our anniversary with family and friends. An exceptional meal and the owner personally made sure that we had a great evening. A must if you are in Cortona and looking for a great dinner and fun venue.

This is our second visit to the restaurant. The food is quite scrumptious, the ambiance is charming and the owner is as fresh as his ingredients. Fine dining for a reasonable price, can't go wrong. We will definitely eat here again when we return to Cortona. Make a reservation, you'll need it.

As usual Romano sets the standards high. We had a great lunch,food was excellent and wine Romano suggested was perfect. Because of the small size of the room we were able to talk to other guests. This included 12 members of the local Caribiniere who were welcoming a new commander . I am sure you have heard people say ,eat... More

Everything was absolutely amazing! I don't even have words for how delicious the food is. Fantastically attentive staff & a wine list of 40 pages. It would be a shame to come to Cortona & not go to La Bucaccia! I recommend sitting outside because the view is beautiful!

What an evening we had in Romano Magi's delightful restaurant! He loves to keep his guests happy and well-fed so we came away with groaning bellies full of delicious cheeses, meats and other delectable treats. By all means, make sure you keep an evening open, make a reservation, don't eat all day and go to La Bucaccia!
