All the strength and flavour that the Adriatic Sea can conjure up are concentrated in La Buca, the insignia of Cesenatico overlooking the Canal Port of Leonardo da Vinci. It all started in 1985 and since then Stefano Bartolini, son of a former fisherman weaned at the legendary Inn of mamma Angela and her two sisters, has been an excellent interpreter of what symbolizes “the sea in its essence”. The marine environment echoes all around, from appetizers to main courses, including the service and the surroundings. Praises must go to the raw dishes on the menu as well as the great classics of Romagna cuisine. The location is thoughtfully designed by Andrea Bartolini, the architect in the family, and reflects craftsmanship and the sea’s natural accoutrements: soft lighting, muffled sounds and materials such as iron and bare metal sheeting, reproduce the sensations of a fisherman in the depths of his fishing boat’s galley. And so, when you leave the commotion on the quay with the call of seagulls, you are enveloped by this seemingly suspended restaurant atmosphere, detached in time and space, to devote yourself fully to the pleasures of the palate.
