Welcome to La Bucca – 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 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.

Ate there recently with a group. Noise was so bad that we couldn't all join in a chat together. Seafood chowder was excellent but the spinach and ricotta tortellone was terrible. The pasta was like rubber and the whole thing was tasteless, so much so that I only had a couple mouthfuls. Surprised when the plate was picked up looking like it had never been touched that I wasn't asked if there was a problem...in fact never once asked if everything was okay...something I get asked everywhere I eat, including places like Wetherspoons. Brownie and ice cream dessert was very good but way too much on the plate which put me off right away...a smaller portion.would have made a better presentation. So it cost me an arm and a leg for a bowl of soup, a couple mouthfuls of pasta and one brownie and a scoop of ice cream. Was very, very disappointed having heard such good things about the food. Way overpriced too.

The food here is great. I've been going to La Bucca for years now and I've started to notice the prices have gone up a lot which is putting me off going as often as Ashbourne now has great restaurants to choose from.

We were here last Saturday night and liked it so much, we're going back tonight. We shared the garlic, parmesan and chilli flatbread to start and it was delicious. I had the prawn thermidor for main course and tasted the crab ravioli and they were both outstanding. There are so many dishes on the menu that you wouldn't find in a typical Italian restaurant (and I mean that in a good way!). There is plenty to choose from - steak, burgers, pizzas, pasta etc - there is something for everyone. We got a lovely bottle of red on special offer at €19.95 - the name escapes me now but if it's still on tonight, I'll update! Staff are really friendly and welcoming. We'll be back again and again!

From the cost, to the people and especially the food La Buca has always been one of the highest quality restaurant. I've been going to this restaurant for years, and it has always had a very high standard in customer service, atmosphere, and food. The staff have been there for years and the it makes such a difference knowing the staff. If your looking for a cheaper night their tener fest is a must, seats will be full which only adds to the atmosphere. My pick off the menu would be either the La Buca burger or beef and asparagus pasta.

Really impressed here. 3 adults and 5 hungry kids average age 10. Late booking and was accommodated. Manager and staff faultless. Kids menu was unreal quality and very good value. Waiter was courteous polite and no issue with any tweak of order. Adults menu was excellent lots of early bird/ specials along with standard menu. Wine quality and selection good value. Checked by waiter and manager to see if everything was ok. Not a morsel of food returned and i mean that not even a crumb. €128 for all incl starters wine and coffee. Generous tip left due to quality. Wish you would set up in Laois. Please retain your high quality and good value and don't rest on your laurels.
