Literally translated, La Buca degli Artisti means "The Artists' Cave" and no one could have foreseen just how well that name would fit the restaurant, the patrons and the ambience.

Over the years, a procession of celebrities has passed through the unassuming premises on Godthåbsvej 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 as a collaboration between two generations of Lollis for many years. Before the family started La Buca, Ellis would often say of her own home cooking, "If you could just make this kind of food at a restaurant, then people would get it!" Her husband Ettore Lolli saw in this a great opportunity. He had enjoyed her good cooking for years and had the generosity to share it with the rest of the world. Since 2007, it's the son Guido who runs La Buca and You can find a painting of Ellis and her husband Ettore on the wall in the restaurant. Even after their passing, they are still keeping an eye on the next generation taking care of the restaurant.
