As usual, an amazing experience. I was the 3rd time we drove from Toronto to have dinner there and it's worth every km...
Thank you Francesco and Il Buco team.
Reserved a table several weeks ahead requesting a window seat. Never got the window seat. Disappointed.
Always a wonderful athentic flavourful Italian meal !!!
This is one of our favorite restaurants. The staff are exceptional, professional and always friendly. Our meals were delicious with many menu options to choose from.
Valentine’s Day dinner with hubby and kids. Great evening!
Nice atmosphere for Valentine's. Great service. Fast and very friendly. Will definitely be back.
My wife and I go every year for our Valentines Day dinner. Always look forward to going to Il Buco and they NEVER disappoint. Hardest part is leaving at the end !
We have eaten here many times. It is our favourite and it never disappoints. I highly recommend this restaurant. But make a reservation it is popular
The food was above average but not outstanding. Standard Italian fare. The portions were appropriate for the price. No specialty bar menu. Too many surveillance cameras to feel private. Service was good until the regular diners showed up. Russell, our server spent over 10 minutes on 2 occasions talking with one table of regulars and sharing personal photos while ignoring us. He lost our tip to gain their friendship. There are better places to dine and be treated with dignity.
Great atmosphere .. the food was really good lots of different options on the menu and our server was very friendly and made our experience really nice and well worth a night out... the price was good for the mewl you got! Highly recommended
Everything was great the food the service the place we loved it
Best restaurant we’ve been to in years. The food, staff and relaxing mood you created were just so nice to be in for an evening out. Thanks for a wonderful birthday dinner!
We were celebrating my wife’s birthday. We were greeted by the staff who found our reservation no problem, then seated at our table. The food was fantastic along with the restaurants inviting ambiance.
We will be back. We enjoyed the quality and flavour of all our entrees.
Service was excellent, food was mediocre, atmosphere was lovely. We were hoping for more authentic Italian food but 3/9 guests were unsatisfied with their food. Overall, not bad but we won’t be in a rush to return.
On a side note, bread was way too dense, gnocchi was stodgy and tenderloin was average for being the most expensive thing on the menu.
This is one of the best restaurants in Barrie. Everyone should visit, and have the garlic appetizer!
In one word: Pleasant. And I am not using that word to be gently negative or due to a struggle for something better to say. It is the most succinct way I can describe it. I was pleased with my starter. I was pleased with my main, with both quality and portion size. I was pleased with the desert. I was pleased with the personable service. I was pleased with how perfectly full I was at the end of the meal - satisfied without feeling bloated. I felt contented. My experience there set the tone for the rest of the evening enjoying a perfect date night with my wife. The capper was one of the most amazing cappucinos I have ever had - my wife and I were both bringing up how much we enjoyed them the day after. We will definitely go back, for a chance to enjoy the view from that patio in the Summer.
Went for Barrielicious. Food and service were excellent. My wife had beef carpaccio, pork tenderloin and chocolate mousse and I had Ceasars Salad, blackened salmon and chocolate mousse.
It was my first time at your restraint. I loved the atmosphere! The view was amazing. The food was amazing as well. I will definitely come back to your restaurant.
A little on the noisy and cold side but otherwise was amazing!
We attended for Barrielicious, food was fabulous! Service was a little more casual than we expected but overall it was a great experience, thank you!
Great food great atmosphere definitely will be going again cheers 😀🍻
Food and drink selection was excellent. Service by cyril fantastic.
Not cheap but quite worthwhile, and the Barrielicious event is great value.
I've been here several times. I have consistently had great service and delicious food. I will continue to recommend this restaurant to friends and family.
Outstanding food as always and excellent service. Top notch restaurant with a very nice atmosphere. I would highly recommend it.
My wife had been there a few times and decided to go as part of Barrielicious. I really loved this restaurant. The waiter (forgot his name - glasses, short greying hair) was excellent. It was a fantastic experience and we will be back for sure.
As usual the food was excellent. The service exceptional was a little cool sitting by the window but probably splitting hairs here. One of our favorite places to eat in Barrie.
Barrielicious, great selection of proteins and fresh salad and vegetables. Highly recommended any time of the year!
We were there for Barrielicious and know the set menus may not be as good as the regular menu. Interesting portion sizes for main course and a bit light on veggies. pork tenderloin was good but lots of meat for one..scallopinni was a bit undersized. the tiramisu was lovely.
Food was amazing and Jean-Carlos was wonderful!!
We had an excellent experience. GREAT service. Great food. Our waiter was awesome. He sang happy birthday to my wife which absolutely thrilled her. We will definitely return and we’ve told our friends of our experience. Thank you again.
One of our favourites - great for a special occasion, birthday, anniversary, etc.
This was our first visit to Il Buco, and we were not disappointed. We had tried on several occasions to secure a reservation but this place fills up fast. I booked for the Saturday a week in advance.
We shared the Enricos garlic in goats cheese cream sauce and it was as the waiter said one of the favorites.. Very good.
My wife had the hand stuffed pasta and I had the 8oz tenderloin and both dishes were superb.
Overall a wonderful dinner and we will certainly be back.
Wonderful restaurant to celebrate a birthday. Was serenaded in Italian.
Great Menu, Service, Meal and Ambiance! Cant wait to go back!
always great quality food, authentic, and excellent service. Nice ambiance and handy parking too. A bit more attention to the blinds would be helpful as sun was a bit blinding, but that would be a trade off in blocking the lake view.
Il Buco is a little bit pricey, but well worth it. We had one of the finest meals of our life and highly recommend it as a place to create wonderful memories. Our waiter, Cyril, gave us the best service I've ever had at a restaurant. If you are lucky enough, to get him, you are in for a fabulous evening.
Hint: make your reservations early in the day, just as the restaurant opens. By doing so we were given one of the best window tables with marvellous views of the bay.
The great food, good drinks, outstanding service and amazing location gave us an experience that will be fondly remembered.
Always great service, a friendly atmosphere and fantastic food!
Our favourite place to eat in Barrie!
We sourced this gem on TripAdvisor as the #1 restaurant in Barrie. Well earned title - we will definitely make the trip to Barrie again to further sample their delicious fare.
