“Pizza Rossa at Il Buco: a Urbinian Must-Try!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

This hole-in-the-wall type place is an institution in Urbino. Here they made fresh daily, pizza bianca (similar to focaccia without sauce or toppings) and pizza rossa (piazza bianca with tomato base). If you are coming to Urbino and want to sample some of Urbino’s best pizza at a true pizza al taglio (pizza by the slice sold at small take-away shop), then head to Il Buco and order up a slice of Pizza Rossa!

“Very central and very good”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

This is what seemed a very popular pizzeria al taglio, i.e. where you take away the slices of pizza or where you eat them on a few high chairs in the pizzeria itself. We tried different kinds and the overall quality is very good, in particular the pizza stuffed with spinach and mozzarella cheese - absolutely delicious. On the other hand the pizza stuffed with mortadella was alos good but definitely lacked the mozzarella! In Rome it would be strange to find a stuffed pizza without mozzarella. Anyway, we have seen this pizzeria full with students which we thought must be a good sign and we can confirm this. When in Urbino and you are looking for a cheap, informal and good meal, head here.

“Very Tasty”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Most of the restaurants in Urbino don't open until after 7 p.m., so we decided to give Il Buco a try. Located under the Church of Saint Francis, it's a small place that only serves three or four kinds of pizza and seats 6 or 7 people.

We ordered slices of the margherita and the mushroom pizza and both were excellent, with delicious crust. If the pizza had been served hot, I would have given a 5 rating, but they were only lukewarm.

However, it was inexpensive and good enough that we plan to return to try their other pizzas. When we go back, we'll make certain that the pies are left in the oven long enough.

“Light tasty pizza”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

A lovely crispy pizza, piping hot. You can sit outside and watch the world go by. A short walk from all the major attractions and plenty of shade on a hot day. Good salads are available here as well.Value for money.

“few courses, but simple and very good”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

. Simple but nice pizzeria at the center of Urbino. Excellent street food. I tasted the best 'crescia' with herbs (excellent, slightly bitter chicory) and first quality cheese (urbino's casciotta). Fair prices indeed.
