Buca Osteria & Enoteca brings Italy to Toronto’s dining hotbed on King Street. Executive Chef Rob Gentile has been internationally celebrated for his locally sourced, constantly changing menu. Guests are drawn to return time and again for the warm hospitality and artisanal fare, including famed house-cured meats, pizza, and pasta, inspired by the classic traditions of Italy with a contemporary culinary touch. An open curing room is on view, and beyond the Enoteca, a smaller wine bar, offers the perfect space for intimate gatherings. Tucked at the end of a private brick walkway, guests can choose to dine under the soaring ceilings of the restaurant’s industrial chic dining room. Consistently rated one of Canada’s best restaurants by critics since its opening, Buca is a modern classic built on the perfect balance of old world and new.

The food was not good for such an expensive, trendy restaurant. We left most of it behind

Absolutely impressed by the food, we tried the
Gnocco Frito - surprisingly delightful
Bigoli - delicious as expected
Tagliatelle - packed with complimenting flavours
Tiramisú - INCREDIBLE, this was the perfect tiramisú in every way.

*Impeccable service, they were on top of everything and had very thorough descriptions of all items on the menu, including little tastes of Italy, like where you would likely find the dish, and how it might be served there.

I had my 30th birthday dinner with my boyfriend here. It was a great choice. The service was fantastic from the moment we entered the restaurant to when we left. The food was amazing!! We ordered the salumi platter, parmigiana melenzane, nodini, branzino cicoria. Our attentive waitress suggested a very rare pasta dish called "Su Filindeu" and we were so happy we got it. At the end of our dinner, I was given a gift of fresh pasta with cheese and olive oil which my boyfriend and I used the following day. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion or for those who just enjoy great cuisine!

Our Waiter was awful food was pretty good but they wouldn’t honor a gift card from bar Buca when the person who sold it guaranteed it was good for all three locations. The waiter was very rude when declining the gift card and I quote “sorry I don’t make the rules not our problem” Now bar Buca will not refund the gift card even with a receipt so we are forced to go to bar Buca (or give $100 away) even though my wife and I both can’t find anything appetizing on the menu...If you go I hope you have a much more pleasant experience than we did!

This was probably the best meal i had, im Italian and have been to many Italian restaurants in Toronto this was by far the most distinct and authentic, you wont find this kind of cuisine anywhere else, it is a materpiece. I had the Cervello to start and spaghetti al nero di maiale, which i recommend for anyone who goes here!!
