My boyfriend and I came here for a tête-à-tête and had a lovely night. The food was very good but having dined at The Buco Alimentari a week before we have found the menu there a lot more interesting and traditional Italian. Here expect an American fusion of Italian cuisine but still a very refined one. The atmosphere is the... More

We had dinner here it is a charming restaurant with a rustic almost ski chalet feel about it. The service was very attentive and the food really good we shared a number of appetisers between us all of which were very good and the fresh pasta was excellent. The wines are expensive but a very comprehensive list. Definitely worth a... More

Came here for my birthday with our friends who we were staying with in NY. They had booked for 6.30pm the only time available even given a couple of weeks notice. It looked ok but we were given a large round table somewhat in the way. My chair was knocked into a couple of times and someone warned me that... More

We [ party of 4] stumbled across this restaurant after shopping in the area. It looked quaint, & we were in the mood for Italian. It was a lovely leisurely lunch.We started with their home made bread, delicious. Then, venison carpaccio - excellent . Kale salad, arctic char, bone marrow, pastas..... We enjoyed a couple bottles of wine, & then... More

My husband brought me to Il Buco for a date night. Unfortunately we didn't have reservations and took a chance at 6.30pm to see if we would get in. We did, but were told with a little bit of annoyance we'd need to be done by 8pm, which was fine as we had a concert to go to after. The... More

We went to celebrate a business success that our team had. We were a table of six. The place is relatively small and pretty loud so best to make reservations. The quality of service was top notch. The appetizers were perfect and delicious. The octopus was a success. The special (meat dish which serves 2 or 3 in theory) was... More

OK, we were late for the reservation but we did call to notify them. We were seated at a most awkward table-at an angle between an aisle and in front of the service door. Spent most of the time wondering if we were going to be battered by passers by. The food was wonderful, especially the chilled corn soup. The... More

Gourmet food. Great service. Classic Italiano cuisine. There were only two things I didn't like: very small portion sizes (although I eat like a Grizzly Bear) and a slender man-like Maître d' standing over your table doing absolutely nothing - felt a bit weird to be honest. It was also over priced - but I'll let Il Buco off for... More
