Description: Simple, honest, real food made with love - Authentic italian artisan pizza, delicious house made salads, authentic Italian gelato + Superb organic coffee Here at Il Buco we work really hard to source only the best ingredients. It is our philosophy to try & stay as local and as seasonal as possible with our produce. We want to support our local farmers & businesses. So our ham is from Bangalow Sweet Pork, our salumi is from the boys at Salumi, our fresh fruit & vegetables are mostly sourced from local farmers including Coopers Shoot Tomatoes & where we need to use imported produce we try to support local distributors to cut down on our fuel emissions! So please enjoy your food knowing that we have made every effort to source the best & most yummy local ingredients that are in season!

Every dish we ordered was delightful, the calzone, pizza and involtini (which was perfectly smokey, eggplant stuffed with smoked cheese and wrapped in this amazing pork product).
The quality of ingredients used is obvious in every mouthful. My 11y/o proclaimed it was the best pizza ever.
Service was warm and attentive.
So happy to have found this little gem that’s worthy of its #1 rating

Ate dinner with my wife.. Well deserved position on TripAdvisor. The pizza was delightful (salami chilli) and the eggplant lasagne (probably not its real name) was epic!! Service was attentive and polite, and everything seemed to be priced fairly. Definitely recommend checking this place out!!

This restaurant is worth all the top ratings it has received. The food is outstanding - authentically Italian and very filling without feeling "heavy". The pizzas, including the calzones and the "ripiena" are delicious. And don't miss out on the pesto lasagna! On top of that, the staff is really friendly. We had to wait for the food, and they went out of their way to compensate for that.
