Il Buco is one of Barrie's best kept secrets. It is fine Italian cuisine in a warm and inviting atmosphere. Come and enjoy a relaxing lunch or dinner while taking in the beautiful view of Kempenfelt Bay.

One of our favourite places to go in Barrie, either a nice romantic night out just the two of us or a celebration with friends. The staff is the main reason we keep coming back.

Food and service are outstanding, for no more than what it would cost at a road house. And all is home made in their kitchen. Best dinning experience in Barrie

Had a very good time, and we might have had the best wait person in the building - Cyril. He took care of our table like we were the only people he had to take care of, but he really had many tables, and was the same with all guests. Before we even asked for something he attended to our needs with the best smile! He was the one thing that would make us go back again anytime.
Amazing food and ambiance with wonderful waiters like Cyril with loads of patience and kindness make Il Buco the best place.

We always enjoy our evenings at Il Buco - John was our server and he is always up to whatever we throw at him. He comes up with wonderful recommendations and is always accommodating and happy. The foods is great and wine nicely chilled. Already looking forward to our next visit.

As we arrived at Il Buco, we were immediately greeted and welcomed with open arms and sat right next to the window with a beautiful view of the lake. One thing you can't get over is the service. The waiter, Cyril (sorry if I got that wrong) was simply fantastic and always there when you needed him, very friendly and very professional.
For lunch, at least, you should give this place a chance. The lunch menu is priced reasonably and the service/presentation will make you wonder why you haven’t been here yet. A good variety of choices, all of mine were excellent.
Thanks again and we will see you soon!

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.
