Ristorante la Bucaccia - Cortona
In the heart of the gentle Cortona, coming from Piazza della Repubblica through Porta Bifora, a strict Medieval lane leads visitors to the ancient cellars of Palazzo Cattani where La Bucaccia is situated. Born as stay of legionaries and travellers, La Bucaccia offers much more than simple its prized typical products. The restaurant La Bucaccia is a unique, intact place, which is still very much alive in its warm atmosphere; it has conserved not only its original Medieval layout but also its perfect symbiosis with the ancient Town of Cortona. Romano Magi, famous restaurateur, and his wife, Agostina, present recipes which are the product of experience in the choice of the ingredients and bear not only the mark of history, but also of the land and its fruits. Keeping up the local tradition of the home cooking, the Magi family is ready to welcome you and recommend starters based on : Salame, finocchiona, prosciutto, crostini of chicken lever, bruschette. The rediscovery and valorisation of “authocton” cuisine is the distinguishing feature of the first courses: hand made pasta, soups, panzanella, pici alle briciole o all’agliata, nastrine di patate, tortelloni, ribollita, pappardelle of wild sauce; during the season mushrooms and truffles join the offerings, also selected from nearby local suppliers. Great attention is given in the search for cured delicatessen meats typical of the area that are always of high quality and of handicraft production: grilled steak of Valdichiana beef, tagliata alla Cortonese, pork lever sausage, roast cured pork and wild boar, white tuscan beans cooked in an earthenware pot or in a flask. To end the meal, you can choose from the dessert list cantucci, cakes, tiramisu, fruit pastry in a chocolate sauce: all rigorously home made It is in these traditional dishes that the essence of Tuscany’s cuisine may be found, influenced by Cortona lifestyle and the passing of seasons. But its character and variety are also outcome of the great enthusiasm of the chef Agostina, ready to renew every day its cuisine. La Cacioteca will introduce you in the hearth of the tuscan food tradition: pecorino and caprino cheese married to vegetables and fruit sauce. La Vineria: since its origin, the name of this place (Cattani cellars) has been linked to wine. The winery proposes more than 120 bottles selected from the best regional labels, an ample range of them, 50 labels, from the “Terre di Arezzo wine road”.
