Description: A little bit of Mediterranean cuisine in County Meath! La Bucca was opened in 2004, by Russell Bailey 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.

Very tasty Italian. Lovely chicken wings. A great understanding of how to properly prepare gluten free food. Highly recommended

This restaurant is in the first floor of a little modern house in the middle of Ashbourne. Parking facilities: you just need to ask one of the waiters to open the main door with a remote control (be aware, the time you go down, the door will be close: better if you call from the car to ask that they open the door or send one of the passengers to ask for this).
Good food, we particularly appreciated: 1) a "wings sharing" plate, allowing all of our group to taste them; 2) kids meal deal, 10 euros.

We, 2 adults and 2 children (4&7) had dinner here while on holiday. The menu had a great variety on it, they also had a three course children's menu for €10.
My children both had pasta, one with bolognese and the other had a cream sauce. I had crab meat ravioli with a tomato sauce, the pasta was cooked to perfection and the sauce was devine but the crab meat didn't taste fresh it didn't taste great. My husband had tagliatelle thermador which he found very tasty. Our server was really lovely and patient. The service was quick.
My children had a brownie with ice cream for dessert, my husband had the waffles with fruit which they both liked. I had sticky toffee pudding, it was disappointing the sponge was dry and stale and served on a lake of toffee sauce.

We chose to eat here on a recent trip to Dublin Zoo & Tayto Park. We were staying in a hotel closeby but decided to make a resevation here as it was only 5 minutes from our hotel.

We were not disappointed. Both the food and the service were first class. There was a good selection on the menu and plenty of options for kids too.

The restaurant was busy and had a nice relaxed atmosphere and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. O would definately recommend it to anyone visiting Ashbourne.
