First visit in a few months, disappointed with food, chicken skewers starter good but pizza disappointing - chicken not very soft and base over doughy with poor sauce distribution.

Take away this time, but would come once a month or so. Consistently good food. Wide variety aand portions are usually big. Great gluten free options. Pizza, pastas and chips.... very kid friendly.

We have visited this restaurant as a family a least once a month since it open several years ago. It has always been good food and service. Several of the waiting staff have worked there since the beginning, which is a good sign in any business. However, on a recent visit for my wife's birthday, although we had booked our... More

The seafood chowder was nice and the ribs starters were really tasty and I would certehave again. I had the prawns in the past which were also really tasty. The mixed grill was huge. The meat balls and spaghetti wasn't bad. It is abit pricey and would be good for a special occasion. I have been a number of times... More

The restaurant was very busy when we went in. The chicken wings had little or no sauce on them and there wasn't much eating on them must have been the last ones out of the bag. They forgot one main course for a toddler and when it was brought out the middle of the meatballs were stone cold. They took... More

I cannot fault the food , I went for the brie and bacon burger which was excellent . And the tiramisu was heavenly . I must say the banoffee was a little lacking in with banana and... More

We went in for a family meal and found the staff generally very good, you can certainly see that they employ youngsters locally and they are a work in progress. If you are very clever you can eat from one of the special offers which they have but it's like Ryanair it works but god help you if you change... More

Always find the food in La Bucca to be decent (even though I tend to stick to my favourites every time!) - However, we can't help but notice that it's definitely more expensive than it used to be... A lot of their pasta dishes can easily be made at home, and anything more unusual tends to be priced much higher..... More
