Customer demand led to the opening of La Bucca Ratoath in 2006 and La Bucca Dunboyne in 2010 we would be delighted to welcome you to any of our 3 venues to try one of our tantalizing dishes and a glass of wine.

Please don’t forget 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.

La Bucca is our favourite local restaurant. It can be pricy but the Tennerfest menu is excellent value. Love the pizzas, lemon chilli chicken, the wings are amazing, best ever tasted and if you're trying to be good their salads (sweet chilli beef and duck especially) are so tasty and filling that you won't miss the carbs at all.

Lovely, friendly staff. Fabulous food. Can be expensive but go during tennerfest when on a limited, but still good menu, mains are €10 and starters €5. Wings night deals give you a portion of the best wings ever plus a pint of Erginger for €12.50.

Food, service and atmosphere all great. Started with a sharing portion of the wings. We both had burgers for our main courses. Highly recommend the strawberry meringue sundae for dessert!

La Bucca is my favourite Meath restaurant for casual dining. The food and service are top notch. I prefer mid-week dining to weekend dining though because the restaurant can get very noisy at busy times.

From our experience, this restaurant looked the part, but we felt a little let down. We had heard great things so decided to visit on a weekday evening. Unfortunately for us, the place was crammed with post-communion families. The floor-staff were overworked, and were struggling to cater for the numbers in the restaurant. The noise of so many kids in the restaurant didn't help when trying to get the attention of staff. The pasta was actually good but the burger was quite mediocre.

We dined here just over 2 weeks ago, while we were visiting friends in Ratoath. There were 4 in our party. The food was to die for. I had the biggest jumbo prawns ever. They were delicious. The service and attention by the staff was perfect. The price was very reasonable. We will be going back to Ratoath in 3 weeks and I am alreadylooking forward to it. Well done La Buca. Alan

This restaurant ticks all the boxes. I went here with my husband and three kids on a Sunday afternoon. It is very child friendly with an excellent kiddie menu. The place was buzzing and the staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was fabulous with a very extensive menu and the best part was the value for money. It was only 59 euros in total for 3 courses for the kids and two for us. We will definitely be back.

This is a must for Italian lovers. The chicken wings are the best around. Anytime we are in Ratoath my son ask can we go to La Bucca, so he can have the crab claws. The staff are excellent & the make kids very welcome. If you like good food & are taking the kids look no further the La Bucca.

I visited this restaurant after seeing it mentioned in the Sunday Independant as best restaurant in Meath and it definitely lived up to expectations. The menu is extensive and suits all tastes. The service was fantastic, the waiter was so attentive. Our glasses were just empty when he offered refills. The food itself was amazing-the beef and asparagus pasta is out of this world. the atmosphere was good, it was busy and bustling. Its slightly out of the way for me but it was worth the trip, I will definitely be returning!

I went for dinner at the La Bucca restaurant in Dunboyne. It has only recently opened and everyone was recommending it. It was late when we decided to go but we got a table no problem (even though it did seem busy). I ordered pasta and my other half ordered the chicken with a mushroom, only to be told here was no plan chicken left. I got the goats cheese crostini (which were a bit too crusty I could barely bite into them) and he got the chicken wings - only to discover his main course chicken had the exact same sauce. It was a bit much and should have been advised. I though the bill was a bit steep for the quality of food we received! my pasta was prawns in a creamy port sauce which tasted like a pot of avonmore cream had just been dropped into it! Overall I was disappointed but said I would return to give it another try.

I love this place. Living locally means we frequent this place a lot!It is always busy at weekends and the food is always excellent. The pasta and pizza dishes are great and there are regular specials to choose from. Staff are nice. Take away service is also very handy and there are some good deals during the week.

Any time I have been here, I have had a great time. It is quite difficult to get a table on a Sunday if you walk in, so it would be best to reserve a table. I like the way you can see into the kitchen too, it gives it a great atmosphere. I was once here for my friends birthday and they provided us with our own set meal, which was a really nice touch. I loved the pasta, especially the spicy tomato pasta sauce! I have never had a bad meal here.

La Bucca Ratoath, where the Customer is never right! I went for a meal in this Restaurant recently with a group of friends,The place had a nice atmosphere, and very enthusiastic waiting staff. I had my starter which was nice. The problem started when I returned my main which was a beef burger that was Very pink. The Waiter was very friendly,and took it away without question. Then a manager of sorts came and asked me what my problem was with it. I explained that it was Very pink (uncooked) and that I did not want to eat it. He insisted that it was cooked, and that I was wrong(big no no ) He then asked me to come into the kitchen where he could show me it was fully cooked.(all in front of friends). I asked him if he thought I was stupid, and I didnt know the differance between cooked and uncooked, to whick he replied, I was wrong. After he left the table,the people sitting beside me said how shocked they were with his reaction, and how RUDE he was.Nobody should be made to look like a fool in front of friends by anybody,never mind a manager of a restaurant. If you dont like your food here,just grin and bear it,or suffer the consequences. He is a let down to an otherwise good Restaurant. Those in my company said they wouldn't return,nor will I.

First time in La Bucca Ratoath. Service was excellent - the waitress was very friendly and looked after us very well. We had some of the specials and some choices from the menu and we all found it delicious. Would go again.
