We've visited this restaurant many times now and it just keeps on getting better. I had the beef cheek off the specials & would describe it a Ramseyesque! Looking forward to next visit already :)

Went to La Bucca last night for my daughters 14th birthday. We had been there previously and the food was always great. This time it was really disappointing. My husbands starter did arrive until after we had finished ours. The waitress in fairness did apologise and we were not charged for them. He had only finished his starter when our... More

I had heard about La Bucca after the hype around their chicken wings . If you win awards for the most over fried ( at least double fried ) chicken wings then La Bucca certainly is the place . Only my wife intervening I would not have paid for them. Would not recommend this eatery to friends and we will... More

Fantastic food and everything is spotless. The staff are so friendly and are excellent at their job. Great variety on the menu, the flat breads, chilli chicken skewers and pastas are my favourite. Nice variety of wines and beers. Russell and his staff make your visit very enjoyable.

A little bit of Italy in County Meath! La Bucca was opened in 2004, by Russell in Ashbourne to provide family friendly dining to the fastest expanding town in County Meath. Customer demand led to the opening of La Bucca Ratoath in 2007 and La Bucca Dunboyne in 2010 we would be delighted to welcome you to any of our venues to try one of our tantalizing dishes and a glass of wine.Keep an eye out for our daily changing specials, which have a leaning towards seafood but has something to suit every palate. Please remember at peak times booking is essential – especially at weekends. Look forward to welcoming you soon.
