Be sure to call ahead and reserve a table, cause quite often every table is booked. They keep their menu simple but very good. It's a friendly atmosphere and the service takes time to make sure everything is just perfect at your table.

You cant go wrong at La Buca, they keep it simple and they keep it good. The service is very friendly at this busy Italian, you will need to book ahead to avoid disappointment. The location ( Vanløse ) is very odd but still the...More

This is a restaurant who's intentions are openly traditional: "When dishes have survived for generations and been served over and over again, there is a reason for it" as you can read on their homepage. "If La Buca can present this quality in addition with...More

Not the typical location you would go for, but once there, relax and enjoy it. Food is fantastic, cooked with passion. La Buca is not the place for pizza and carbonada, this place is one or more levels above. Selection of wines is amazing with...More

Located in the Copenhagen outskirts, in a very un-posh area of the city, La Buca doesn't give much of an impression. Neither from the outside nor from the inside. Interior decoration is definitely not a focus area .... But who cares? The restaurant has been...More

Over the years, a procession of celebrities has passed through the unassuming premises on Godthabsvej without ever diminishing the homey atmosphere and excellent service that are also staples of the restaurant. The walls are decorated with portraits of artists, many of whom have visited La Buca themselves. The Lolli family took over the restaurant in 1988, and it has been run by two generations of Lollis ever since. These days, it's the son Guido who runs La Buca. The menu is strictly Italian with fx. homemade pasta, fish, antipasti and meat. A specialty is the extensive winelist. All can be seen on the webpage www.labuca.dk
